It Was Just What I Was Looking For...



I know! I'm posting everyday, "what, what, what..." I was hoping to find an old metal doll bed at the flea market and I found the perfect one on the last aisle. The only problem was that by that time I was $4 short of the asking price. I couldn't offer the lady $13 for what was in her mind, a $17 item. That's when my trusty friend Val, also known as Chloe when she sings karaoke, {what up Clo if you're readin} busted out her checkbook. Saved me and the doll bed. I plan to have a tiny piece of foam cut for a mattress and then I'm going to sew a small coverlet for the top. Aren't those tiny wooden casters cute? Another great display piece for the studio and trunk shows. A-dorable.

I can't wait to see the finished project. Your brain must be going wild with all kinds of ideas. I wish I had your creativity. Now I want to go to that Tinsel and Treasures show just to see your booth. I think I will have my hands full by that time though. Hopefully you take lots and lots of pictures.

Love that bed, so cute. Perfect for a display piece too. How lucky you were to find it on your last row.

Love your doll bed - I have a very similar one. I'm sorry to say that it has been in storage a good while. Seeing yours makes me want to try very hard to find a place for it, so that I can enjoy it!
