Awesome Early Presents

In a couple of days I will officially pass by another year - where did 365 days go I ask! I have to say it was a roller coaster - another hand surgery, a divorce after 20 years, having to rethink my whole life including what to do with my home, quickly get to know who your friends (and thank you all of my lovely peeps for all your support). There have been good things too - coming to realize I CAN do this, trying new things and, of course Mister Darcy (how DID I get so lucky).
So I felt like a birthday present was a good idea. Since I started fixing up the house I have had things on my list to find. The first being a bed frame.
No ordinary bed frame but a special one to go into the Rose Room (remember, the one with the chandelier). 
Which has made such a difference - and now look at my fancy schmancy room - now I can finish the decorating
But wait - that was not all - I have been wanting for some time to find a good way to store my artsy stuff - there sure is enough of it. I know, I know - I could easily down size it all.
But then I would have never found this. How AWESOME. Sturdy and big enough to store all kinds of things.
Love, love, love - my head is spinning with all the ways to decorate the top LOL. If you are local go check out Prism Antiques owned by Ryan & Nicole Kramer - you can find them on Facebook too. A really lovely couple who have only been here a few months but are doing gangbusters with their business. Enjoy. Jewels


  1. Wow, did you ever score. Love the faded look of the bed frame. Adds just the right flair to your beautiful quilt. And, the lovely cupboard, well, it is perfect. Can't wait to see how you decorate the top. You deserve all of this and more. Hugs.

  2. You certainly HAVE been on the rollercoaster of life over the past year - and come out the other end with such a glow of positivity :) I'm loving your new 'art storage unit' LOL!


  3. Happy Birthday my friend, I always have said God doesn't give us more than we can handle, and you sure have proven him correct. You are a trooper. I love the new art chest, happy birthday to you. I ran into this couple in Petoskey this summer at an antique fair and couldn't believe it when they told me they were from Midland area. I bought the coolest old table that they recreated from an old soap crate. Way cooollll and great price. I bought a few more items also, couldn't resist.
