I'm joining up with the wonderful Like Mother, Like Daughter today because the amazing Leila somehow inspired me to clean my bedroom this week-this could qualify for a miracle in the cause of her sainthood!
Our room always becomes a huge pile of "stuff". Usually stuff I want to hide from toddlers. It amasses in no time and seems to hang around for years...so I'm glad I finally got around to cleaning things out today.
Its a nice motivator to think that a nice, clean, bedroom, even though its very far from my "perfect" bedroom can be a pick-me-up! I've made a strange promise to myself that I'm going to have my "perfect" bedroom by my 30th birthday...we'll see about that.
I'm also having houseguests this weekend, so this jumpstarted my cleaning, because we all know no one is going to clean their own bedroom when company is coming over, doesn't it always become a giant extra closet to throw stuff in??
Here's some books I keep in my bedroom, and of course some random necklaces I have no good storage for. Also, notice my brass ducks. I love those things. And half of my Nancy Drew collection!
Overall, it all makes me happy.
I just realized theres really nothing here on our dresser that's my husband's but I bet if you asked him he wouldn't even remember the stuff I have on there...typical.
A little bedside table shot, and its funny because that is a lot of earplugs.
But truly a necessity for sleeping in this madhouse!
So I had to selectively clean in order to take some pictures.
My bed was covered in clean laundry that needed to go places, and that basket is most definitely not clean laundry.
My view from my window wasn't too hot yesterday. Just a little blizzard.
And heres a couple bins full of the clothes the little mr. is constantly outgrowing. And various fabric samples. Some new pillow covers are in there too and I have to throw them on some pillows one of these days. I'm starting to question whether its even worth it storing this baby clothes...
But lets finish with a brass duck close-up because they're so cool. I hope everyone's laughing but be warned my first interior design book will be called "Decorating with Brass Birds" instant hit no?
