that's me, the busy bee

Busy, busy week. After many trips with UHaul and SUV, youngest son and girlfriend are moved into their new Arlington apartment. Check. Our master bedroom is emptied, carpet cleaned. Check. New bed frame scheduled to arrive this evening. Check. Bedroom furniture scheduled to move back in tomorrow. Pre-Paris dinner party with middle son and daughter-in-law tomorrow evening. Time to get officially excited about trip. Check. Then time to start packing for mid-week departure. Sure hope I can find my passport in this upheaval . . . got it, check.

Sneak peek of the new bed frame? These photos are from my favorite Beekeeper's Cottage, but think grey-white linen fabric and king-size. Hand carving on the painted wood surrounds. And dreamy!
This is one of the few pieces of furniture I've bought new and hand-crafted just for me in 40 years of marriage. (My West Point/Airborne/Ranger husband would be just as happy sleeping on a board.) Almost everything else came from when I worked as a designer or from auctions, antique shops and flea markets. Can't wait to test it tonight!!
