"You made your bed

...now lie in it." is something that mother used to say to my sister. Maybe she said this to me as well, but I was not listening. I think that this may be a classical thing that mothers say to daughters.



Daddy D and I inherited this brass bed from my parents. The lovely handmade quilt was stitched by my mother-in-law. In a way, I did not really make this bed, but the lovely brass bed reminds me of this song by the great Bob Dylan. I am rather sure that the words of the song do not reflect what Laura meant by "You made your bed now lie in it.", but I could be wrong.

Classical statement, "You made your ..". The brass head board is very nice with the quilt. The bed brings together things of our parents.

Great song, and beautiful big brass bed. I liked what Daddy D said in his comment - a melding of two families into one.
