Sweet Dreams...and Nightmares

Remember how I've been working on Sadie's room? Well, the other day my friend calls and says her neighbor is looking for somebody who might want a canopy bed and she thought of me. Yes, a FREE canopy bed! Looks like I don't have to paint that headboard after all. They didn't have the fabric canopy to give us (I guess they had just draped fabric) so I made one. We need to get a mattress set for it, but there is no rush since she won't be sleeping in a bed anytime soon.


And now for the nightmare...or at least the nightmare-inducing toy part.
This was in Sammy's Happy Meal today. What do you suppose those people in China think when they are making these toys for us? "What kind of freaks are those Americans?" We rarely do the Happy Meals, but I think this was probably the last one.

Beautiful bed, and I'll bet you whipped up that canopy in no time at all!

That doll is the weirdest looking thing I have every seen!

But you had luck with the bed at least!

I love my canopy bed -- have had it since I was 5 or 6. So glad to have another canopy-er in the family! :-)

What IS that thing???? H ended up with a witch from the Wizard of Oz recently...finally she tossed it in the garbage. We don't normally do the meals either, but it was a 'reward' for being good at that dreaded appointment I had!

LOVE that bed! Sadie will feel like such a princess in that bed.

What in the heck is that freakish blue doll? It's been awhile since we've gotten meals too. Don't they usually center around movie characters. Can't say I've ever seen that thing before. It would give me nightmares too.

What a freaky doll. I know I'm getting old when I have no idea what half of these characters/toys/dolls are anymore.

Cute canopy!

love the canopy bed. I always wanted one when I was little so I am sure Sadie will grow up loving it.

What is that toy? So weird. I was never allowed happy meals as a kid and they were always a special treat my Grandpa would buy me. I would have been so mad if it had been a freaky toy like that!

The bed is awesome.

The doll has freaked me out. I have a weird doll issue anyway, and now that one will be stuck in my head.

What a great bed! That's so awesome that you got it free!

Ok, and what in the world is that odd blue thing? It's like a mutated BooBah.....have you ever seen BooBah? Those are strange too and this reminds me of them.

Your little girl's room is going to be quite delightful! Such a pretty bed. You really have a wonderful talent... so much so I'm thinking you could even make that "thing" from the Happy Meal look good...

Score on the bed!!!!

And those happy meal toys are usually pretty freakish looking. I don't know why I even bother! lol They usually just get pitched after a day or so.

How nice to get a canopy bed for Sadie free! I hope she enjoys it as much as my little girl did/does!

My comment about the Happy Meal toy is is the paint lead based?
