New Pencil Post Bed

Yeah! We got our new bed! Phil Cochran at Sweet Annies in Roca, Nebraska made it for us. Here is a picture of it at the shop when we went to pick it up. I thought I would show you this picture as I can’t get a whole picture in our bedroom as I can’t get far enough away.

Here I laid my Maggie quilt on the bed. Notice the big bump in the middle? When we moved the mattress to go pick up our bed it left a big bump in the middle. We have a pillow top mattress and that’s what it did. We never have cared for this mattress and especially not now. We tried to work it out but so far no luck. Stupid thing.

What I want to do is hang my quilt but I have yet to get the back on it as I don’t know how. I just stuck it up there to take these pictures but it cuts off the header of the quilt, so I will have to wait until I get the back on to hang it.

Reese wanted up on the bed when I was taking pictures. He thinks you would naturally want to see him as much as the bed or the quilt! Spoiled little thing! Somebody around here spoils him, I haven’t figured out who though?!
