Thank you, thank you for showering me in kindness by your reassuring comments. I feel so privileged to share my blog with you all. Thank you too for all your helpful suggestions re my migraines; I'm certainly looking into a few of them though I have tried many over the years. My mother has found that going through the menopause has helped her migraine and I think mine are mainly hormonal, so here's hoping. Not that I'm wishing my life away!
The photo is of my latest car boot purchase - 2 vintage, wicker beside cabinets. You must be totally fed up of pictures of things on my bedside table as it has featured rather a lot in the last few months..but I couldn't resist this bargain.
A pink wicker bedside cabinet for £1 and then 2 stalls away I found an almost identical turquoise one for £3. They don't have any shelves in the cupboard part so I will make some drawstring bags to put our bits and pieces in. I think they look a lot more 'flea market' than our pine ones but they are stored in the loft just in case the drawstring bags prove to be too fiddly for Anth (when a man needs access to his socks he could object to having to faff around with drawstring bags to find a pair; even if they're ticking and not floral bags!)
I lined mine with old Laura Ashley wallpaper but left Anth's plain as I didn't thing he would quite appreciate it in the same way. He's so patient with my floral obsession and I don't want to over step the mark! Mmm must do something about that phone and lampshade though! I also found this small frame that once was gold and now is white. Shabby white.
The picture is a label from Alice's pyjamas that was too lovely to throw away and looks just right.
I hoping that having to move my radio and the inevitable pile of books every time I need a clean pair of knickers, won't prove to be too tiresome. But we'll see.
As Typepad have made a few changes and I cannot find a facility to do a word or phrase search of my past posts, I'm not sure if I have ever shown you this bag. It started it's life as a feather pillow and the pillow was lying on the ground dirty and overlooked. I bought it for 50p and spent a bit of time de-feathering it and giving it a jolly good wash and turned it into a drawstring bag. I love the print so much I have hung it on our bedroom door so I can see it when I lie in bed.
Today is the day Coldplay have released Viva La Vida and I've just put it on my ipod. I'm going to turn off my mobile, go upstairs, lie on our bed and fill the room with Chris' wonderful voice...I'll let you know what I think!
