Don't you just LOVE this bedroom suite?! This is the lovely set of furniture that I purchased for my Mother (as in she paid for it, I did the buying!, darn) and drove 18 hours to Canada from Utah with it in the back of our truck! Yes, we do get involved in our capers now and then and this was definitely the best one yet!
Mom saw this furniture in a JCPenney catalogue one time when she was visiting and just loved it! How couldn't you? She had been thinking of buying new furniture for her bedroom and one day a catalogue came to the house saying that it was on sale for half price and that it would be discontinued! Well! I called Mom up and we put the plan into action. I purchased the lovely suite for her (bed, two nightstands, dresser and matching mirror) in January and we stored it on our barn until we went to visit her in June. I always breathe a sigh of relief when we get across the border...especially with something like this in the back! Some of those border guards can be mighty cranky!, but this guy was really good and the only thing we had to do was to pay the GST and PST on it (Canadian taxes...I don't miss those!).
The style of this suite is simply gorgeous with wicker cane inlay pieces on the bed, a fabulous carved crown on the top of the bed and on the mirror and a beautiful French style in a creamy yellow finish. It looks so wonderful in her bedroom. Now she is back visiting us for six weeks and she picked up a stunning carved rose rug from JCPenney to match. Beautiful! You may also notice some darling antique chandeliers in her room. They are birdcage style and her Mother's Day present. We brought them with us and installed them for her.
What makes this even better is that her bedroom is on the top floor of her beautiful Victorian home and she can walk out on her balcony underneath her turret and take in the lovely lake view below. Going home is so relaxing, but now I'm blessed to have her back here for most of the summer. We have three more weeks to go...we're going to make the best of it!! ~Stacy~ xo
