The first image in this series of bed pictures is an illustration for a poem called Tumbling, which is included in my 1997 poetry anthology, You and Me:Poems of Friendship. Then there’s a page from my 2001 picture book In the Heart, which was written by Ann Turner. Copies of In the Heart are available in my Etsy Shop.
My book, Pocketful of Posies: A Treasury of Nursery Rhymes has many different scenes with beds. After his fall, Jack took to bed and wrapped his head with vinegar and brown paper. And Hush-a-bye-baby rocks in a walnut shell.
And here’s “my son John, went to sleep with his trousers on” from Pocketful of Posies: A Treasury of Nursery Rhymes. I offer autographed copies in my Etsy Shop.
“Go to bed first, a golden purse” from Pocketful of Posies.
And here’s Elsie Marley, who won’t get up to feed the swine, which is also from Pocketful of Posies.

Beautiful work again and again Salley – the children and animals and even the plants are lovely…
how I love your illustrations, they really are out of this world, beautiful
A joy to look at!
Your beds are so different and so well done….just love them!!!
Seeing these details so close is absolutely delightful! Amazing work Sally. You have great talent and your ability to think of these ideas and bring them to life by stitch, felt, etc. is truly a very unique and beautiful art. Since we love cats, I love the kitties between the beds!!
