My place and yours : Bedside



Its rather simple and plain, I'm afraid. I don't spend much relaxing time in bed, and the bedroom is sadly one of the last rooms we'll renovate... But its calm and quiet enough and has a little view down to the water so I like it there... The bedside table was made by my father in law (aka. Popsicle), from reclaimed wood. A gift for our wedding. The clock was given to Huz in 1984 - we still have the instruction booklet and receipt! Its daggy, I know, but I prefer red numbers to bright green/blue ones when I wake in the night as I usually do, tending to my little owlet. Its had water, breastmilk and all manner of things spilled on it through the years and it just ploughs on... The elephant bookend is one of a pair that I've always liked since I was small. The book is next on the list and the flowers are from the garden...

See whats on the bedside at other peoples places over here. Thanks to Pottymouthmama for this week's theme.

  6. Daggy is totally the new cool you know, we are so breaking the mould with our 'new-vintage' clock radios. And My Family and Other Animals is one of my all time favourites, love, love, love it.
