Little bed history...

My parents bought this old little bed for me when I was born...then my sister slept there...and then my cousin, my children and my niece...a little piece of family history which have been kept in my cave for years...I couldn't leave it there anymore...

















...and it's now in my garden...I still have to sew some special pillows...

















...it's better under the sun...

















...or under the white wisteria??? I was very excited to sit on it again....many years passed from the time I slept there!!!

Such a beautiful place to sit down and to read a while... Lovely bed, by the way.
In Summer we do have an iron hospitalbed outside, the children love to sit on it.
Happy time in the garden! :)
Best regards, Marjolijn

BROCANTE ha detto...

What a lovely thing to have in the garden - you can take an afternoon nap there... Sit on it with a glass of cold white wine and dream ....

laura bi ha detto...

Il letto è stupendo e la collocazione pure!!
Che coincidenza anch'io ho comprato anni fa un letto che
assomiglia un po' a questo . Ci hanno dormito le mie bambine (una ancora ci dorme!)e proprio in questi giorni mi era venuta voglia di usarlo come divano per il portico!!!
Grazie per la nuova ispirazione!
Buona giornata.

Ciao Vale, è meraviglioso questo letto!!!
I letti in ferro battuto possiedono sempre un fascino particolare, soprattutto quando poi racchiudono anche ricordi cari.... la sistemazione sotto il glicine è meravigliosa, molto romantica!!
Baci, Annamaria

Ciao Vale, Your bed is beautiful and looks just wonderful in your romantic garden. It's a place where I'd like to sit down with a book or something to stitch or to take a little nap.
Have a great day!
Hugs,
Julia

OMG! What a lovely treasure. Will you keep it outside all the time? I like these kind of things in the garden. XO MARY

Giulia ha detto...

l letto è già bellissimo di per sé, ma la storia che c'è dietro lo rende ancora più affascinante!

BROCANTE ha detto...

You have so many comments now that I am surprised you remenber "old me" - the challenge dear Val is to find joy in both worlds. Nothing is better than spring in Norway. Then I am a true Norwegian! I can love things from all over the world. My heart is always close to Cililia - even if I have not been there for many years. There are so many places to love - but most important is that you have people around you that you love. I have a person with me in France that I love and that I can go home to Norway with - and that is a true blessing.

BROCANTE ha detto...

Sorry I misspelled Sicila!

Good! Next time I come I will have a place to stay! hehe...

I shall think of you sitting there chatting with Paola!

Dreaming of summer today - we woke up this morning to SNOW!!

Ingrid in Umbria ha detto...

Cara Vale,

Lucky you! Nothing compares to a vintage object with a story to tell. What a sweet "Sleeping Beauty" bed. Under the perfumes of a wisteria I am sure you will enjoy some well deserved naps during the warm season. Sleep we, cara! Bacione, Ingrid in Umbria

BELDECOR by Bine ha detto...

Vale, this is such a beautiful story of your antique bed...I can imagine that you are very happy about it... under the white wisteria it is a feast for the eyes... Enjoy your afternoon nap on this cosy bed!
Many warm hugs

Modern Country ha detto...

Vale, the bed is gorgeous!!! I love the shape of it, the side walls with beautiful ornaments. Just the thought of sleeping outside under the sky, with a burning lamp, in this bed, it is a heavenly thought!! Oh it is so pretty and green were you live, and I like how the trees and bushes grows a bit wildly. You have a wonderful place to live!

I hope you had a great day, mine was good. Beyond the weather, that was quite strange. One minut it was raining, then it began to snow (?!?!?) and then I saw hail coming down and the ground become white. I want sunny warm weather, now! :)) Longing for summer..

Thank you ever so much for ALL your lovely comments Vale, they are so special to me. I hope you know that. You are such a layal and sweet blogfriends, I appreciate you!

Warm hug, Aina
