bedroom


Since I tidied up our bedroom the other day, and put up my wall hanging, I thought I'd give you a bit of a bedroom tour. (of course the baskets of dirty socks and pants had to be shuffled around out of each shot ; )


a few new treasures...a 1970s Russian mandolin which I 'may' attempt to learn how to play or just look at it, haven't decided yet. And a most beautiful Japanese hoari which is one of a collection given to me by a friend who visited us this week from Japan.


 I use this kitchen cabinet as my clothes cupboard and I made some curtains to hide my messy clothes stuffed it it. I used some 1930s silk which I love so much but it's terrible for fraying so I nightmare to make clothes out of. At least this way I get to look at it first thing in the morning!.

Our bedroom is tiny, so there is not much we can do with it, and it is usually jammed up with huge baskets of washing. I wish I could spend more time in this room, but I'm usually firked out of it by a distant 'mum, daddy??' in the early hours. Needless to say, it is usually the most neglected room in the house.


this is our tiny laundry/ironing area...

and some cushions I made a while ago.

Our mantle piece does little except collect dust.



and random articles carried in from other rooms by our kiddo.

I love old covered clothes hangers.




In those old suitcases are some of our kiddo's clothes and shoes that I can't bear to get rid of! Maybe she will appreciate having them when she grows up. The quilt on the bed is really old, maybe 30s or 40s?? it is really faded, which is part of the reason I love it!


So there you have it...our bedroom! I wish I could dive into it right now actually.
