Summing it Up...
Now, that I'm way on the wrong side of sixty, I feel that being true to self is important. "I yam, what I yam." Kindness and smiles are to be given away. Women are strong. Men are more vulnerable than we believe. Husbands may come and go...but one thing I know for sure is that I will NEVAH live without a corgi or coffee in my life if I can prevent it. Come piles of dog fur or hot water!

Coloradolady is hosting Vintage Thingie Thursday once again. Please check her site for more entries of vintage items posted across the country and beyond. This old wooden bed has seen many a dolly and stuffed animal in its day. Buster, my daughter April's cat made it his "fat cat bed" as well. My folks gave me this bed when I was around four. That was 53 years ago.
When April was around two, I painted the sides with tube paints, remember those, to make it her own. Her aunt made a doll bed sized quilt for it. Emmy, was two on February 7th, and April gifted it to her baby girl. She almost painted over her name, but didn't have the heart to do it. The quilt is the one her aunt made over thirty years ago.
It may be vintage, but there is still plenty of fun left in this old bed. Still a soft place for dollies to land. Still room for a cat or two. If April can keep Emmy out of it.
PS/ the retro kitchen in the background that several of you have commented on was Em's Christmas gift from Santa this year! She loves it, and is stirring something up in her little kitchen all the time.
