Well, I think I have finally nagged Mr. Savvy enough to make him break down and agree to buying a new mattress. I have been waking up with hip and back pain for weeks, no months, and I am pretty sure it is from our very old mattress. Forget the eight years time to replace like they say in the ads. We are way past eight. It's more like eighteen! I told him since we need a new mattress and box springs that we really need to switch to a king size instead of a queen. We are getting older and he sleeps rather restlessly sometimes and I need my sleep and my space! So since we are in the process of getting a new bed and all the bedding that goes with it I thought I better show you what my bed looks like at the moment before it all changes.
This is how it has looked for several weeks. I decided to bring my cow pillow in here for a bit and I love it with the quilt in the same colors at the end of the bed.
I bought the knit pillows recently on sale at the Pottery Barn outlet and love using them as Euros even though they aren't. Vintage French ticking pillows in front and then the cow pillow.
So after all the bed parts arrive we will be moving this bed and setting up the new one. Of course all this is starting the domino effect again.
