New and Bigger Bed

Over the past 3 years Sug has been making do with the twin bed that was in the Cottage when she moved in.

The twin bed fits well against the floating wall.

She was concerned that a bigger bed would take up too much room.  I assured her there used to be a queen size bed in the same space.

The dogs loved the newly opened space.

Oddly the space looked even smaller when the bed was gone.

The bed is a new-style memory foam with cooling gel.

So for her birthday Sug treated herself to a full size bed.


She used the new Bohemian quilt set I had purchased for her.


I can’t wait to hear how well she slept on her new mattress.

Nighty night.

A good night’s sleep is important to good health.

Do you prefer a firm or soft mattress?

Welcome to The Glade, where the second generation of renovations has just begun and the mania about our home, music and other passions fill our days and nights. We’re Charlie and Jo in the music world; Mary Jo and Charles to family; and JoJo and Charlie to each other. We are renovating a midcentury house in a Victorian historic district where we want to live there the rest of our lives. It's a 1946 house located in Maryland. We were married in this house. Thus far (pre-blog) we refinished cabinets, added a window seat (still working on the cushion), rearranged a wall in the guest house due to sink/vanity replacement, planted a vegetable garden, and other quick and not-so-quick fixes. So this latest zeal for construction is the result of my having lived here since 1997 and feeling a need to ready the house for the next chapter and beyond.

  1. Three years! My eyes glided right over that until I read Jessica’s comment. I can’t believe it, either. The larger size will feel luxurious. I hope the new style mattress works for her.
