Yesterday was…

Yesterday was socializing and packing, one delightful and the other productive. But I got further behind on the to-do list. Argh. I did manage to find one cool thing; we need a new guest bed headboard because our current headboard / footboard are sleigh-style and come too far out into the tiny room. We're pushing it already putting a queen-size bed in that room instead of a full; a footboard would take it too far. I think this one has a nicely Victorian flavor; I like the gate pattern, like an old iron garden gate. Makes me want to decorate the guest room with a garden theme -- which should actually be quite do-able; I still have some framed photos of flowers from our old rooftop garden at the condo, and our bedding is green. :-)
