Have you bought a new mattress in the last 10 years? They are DEEP. Box and mattress are about 18 inches compared to the 15 inches of an old mattress I have in the other spare bedroom. It doesn't help that this old bed has high side rails...12 inches above the floor. I bought an 18 inch dust ruffle and it doesn't hit floor. You need a step ladder to sit on this bed. I'm tall and my feet are no where near the floor when I sit on the bed. I feel like Edith Ann sitting on it (did I just age myself?). Good part about it...lots of storage under the bed.
I love the acorns on the bed posts.
The quilt is Pineapple Blossom from Quiltville (www.quiltville.com) . It is truly a scrap quilt, every fabric you see is in another quilt I've made.
