That bed is gorgeous!! Bethany did much better is a big girl bed. She also was a climber. We just had to make sure we had a gate up so she didn't sleep walk and fall down our stairs! She is so sweet concentrating on her painting. Hope you had fun at the zoo we haven't been there yet!


What an adorable picture of Miss Sugarwings!
Love the bed, too.
Do they still have the train at Gage Park? I remember taking my daughter there when she was little (she'll be 40 in Dec.) They have a nice Zoo there!! Have a fun day!!

70 bucks? I think it's worth it! Mmm I think I pack my bag and move to Kansas city. Not before I wished you good luck tomorrow on the garage sales, it might be my lucky month hehehe! Have fun at the zoo!


Every fairy princess needs a princess bed -- and around here, $70 is a steal!


She looks so sweet and serious about painting! Love the bed, what a find!! Can't wait to see the after shots!


What a pretty bed for a pretty princess!
I wanted to tell you my giveaway goodie package arrived, and I love it!! Thank you sooooooo much!! I posted about it on my blog today, when you get a chance to take a peek (you might also want to see what I found yesterday :)
Thank you again; you are so thoughtful!!

My, you're both hard at work! I just love the Fairy Berry trail, what an adorable idea. No wonder Sugarwings is excited to make a fairy house to add to her special trail. Can't wait to see the princess bed when it's done!

Yes, the box is an old piece that has designs wood-burned onto it. Thank you so much for visiting! BTW, did you notice that we are practically neighbors? Isn't it a small world? My brother is a graduate of KU!

What a cute bed. How cute that it is a minature size poster bed. Sugarwings is really going to love it. Love the pic of both you and Sugarwings looking back.

Hah Ha! I thought the same thing! I thought NO! Don't put that beautiful bed on the Fairy Berry Trail! It's wonderful and I would have paid that in a heartbeat!
The most precious thing about this post was that wonderful picture of you two creative girls busy at work...looking over your shoulders! Thats a scrapbook picture for Sugarwings book for sure! LOVE IT!
I'm hitting the yard sales tomorrow too!


Wow, the bed is beautiful. I can't wait to see the magic you will do to it. I think it was a great buy. Sugarwings, will truly be a princess in her new bed!

I LOVE the first picture of Sugarwings. She has such a look of deep concentration.

The bed is ADORABLE and I don't think you paid too much for it. It's perfect for her and will be priceless when you're done with it.

I know you feel lucky to have Sugarwings, but she is so lucky to have such loving doting grandparents who spend so much quality time with her. It will make such a difference in her life.

Mmmm... sometimes so hard to make them stay in their own bed.
