What Bed & Breakfast is this?

Hello my friends,

Ha, ha, this is not really a Bed and Breakfast bedroom even though it feels like being in one. Mr P. and I went out & purchased a new bed because we felt it was time for a larger mattress. It's funny how through the years ours seems to have gotten smaller & smaller. Could it be because or kitties feel the need to sleep with us & stretch themselves out to their full existent? Could it be I have grown taller and wider? That is very unlikely, considering at my last measurement, I am still only 5 feet. What ever the reason, we have upgraded to a king size bed. Which means we had to get a new head board to fit our new mattress. Oh darn, shopping for furniture, ha ha. Now what women doesn't' love to shop?

I knew I wanted a taller headboard, & fell in love with this one the moment I saw it. I was afraid it would look too small for the bedroom, but I think it looks fine. Interesting thing, it goes so well with our antique dresser that we bought & refinished during our first year of marriage.

While visiting my bloggy friends sights, I see they have been so busy getting projects finished for Fall. Well this has inspired me to pull out a Fall project I started last year but had to put it away because other projects needed to get done first.

Now I am not a Sun Bonnet kind of girl, but when I saw a book by Betty Alderman with these vintage looking Sue's, I knew I had to make it for my wall for the Fall season. The little black kitties make me smile because they remind me of my little Warwick. Now just need to get it quilted & hanging up.

Thanks for dropping by, have a lovely weekend,



  1. That bed, Rebecca, is absolutely gorgeous & it sure does go well with the dresser.

    Love your quilt hanging.

    Have a beautiful day ~

    I love sunbonnet quilts. I have one that my great grandmother made over 50-60 years ago. I'll cherish it forever.

  7. Rebecca, your room looks so nice and cozy with the new bed. I like that quilt in the corner also... is it an antique?
    I was looking at your sunbonnet sue quilt... the background fabric is the same fabric I bought today at my quilt shop. GREAT TASTE!! LOL

  8. Thank you all for your sweet comments, we are enjoying it.
    Yes the quilt in the corner is an antique from the 1800's. It's my favorite one. I found it in a wonderful antique store a couple of years ago.
