Grandma's feather bed!

Have I ever mentioned that I LOVE my bed? It is one of my favorite things in the house. It is a big king size log bed and I Love it. Now the matress set, which is very nice, is not my favorite. It was mainly picked out for my husband's benefit. He likes a firm matress or his back aches. I have gotten used to it and it is fine now but I have never loved it.

This is where the story gets good! My mother in law gets me a gift certificate to Dillard's every birthday and every Christmas. It forces me to shop at a nice store when normally, I just go to Walmart. This time I bought something I am so excited about I can't stand it! I bought a feather bed!!! Do you know what that is? Is is a 3 inch feather matress that you put over the top of your existing matress. I have slept on one once and it was pure heaven!

I orded it online so I don't have it yet but I am on pins and needles waiting for it! Last year I bought myself satin sheets with her gift certificate and I have gotten many beautiful things that just spoil myself that I NEVER would have bought otherwise. It used to bother me to have to go all the way to the mall to use my present but now I can see the genius of it. What a smart woman B's mom is. She knows how cheap I normally am!

I have a down comforter that I love to roll up in and sleep in it. Now I will have feathers on top and on bottom! I hope B likes it. If he doesn't, I will just double it over on my side! Yea for me!

A feather bed is the best! we got ours a few years back and it is wonderful.

Handy hint: Get yourself a nice tight weave and somewhat thick (1/8"-1/4") piece of felt to place over the feather bed, and then top that with a quilted mattress cover, then the regular sheet. It helps to keep the feathers from poking through and zapping you in your sleep. Don't worry that this will minimize the comfort will only add to it! Plus, this helps to keep the feather bed clean.
