Our Stickley Has a HeadboardMonday, September 19, 2016

Since I can remember I have slept in terrible beds. They did not have headboards or the mattress was on the floor. In my childhood I slept in a crib past the age of being a baby as my parents could not afford a regular bed.
In 1986 when Rosemary and I moved to our Kerrisdale home on Athlone Street our relatively comfortable (a bit soft) bed had no headboard. This meant that our head bumped every once in a while with the two window frames behind us.
Rosemary complained, on and on that she wanted to have a bed with a headboard.
When we moved to our present location in Kitsilano we decided to get a decent bed. Actually it is not a decent bed. It is an extremely good Stickley that we purchased at Jordans Interiors on West Broadway and Granville. Since then we have found nice and soft large pillows at the Bay from their Hotel Collection. We have a fine duvet cover. Casi-Casi has his own white bath mat from Ikea and he curls around it at the foot of our bed.
