Mel asked the question, "What's in your bedroom?" and I was immediately reminded of this lovely work I have hanging above our bed. It is silk ribbon embroidery. I made this beautiful posy of flowers many years ago when I was still young, single and family free.
I don't mind how messy the other areas of my house are, but I always love to have my bedroom a place of beauty, peace and serenity. A place where we can rest our heads at the end of the day without having to worry about needing to tidy it so we can simply rest. So each morning I tidy this room and leave it tidy. It generally stays that way as I have trained the girls to jump only on their own beds...well it is usually that way. It's easier now Ess is at school and little Eee is only just learning to walk. I'll have some more toddler jumping on the bed years to come - what fun! :)
This embroidery hangs quietly, contributing to the solitude we enjoy together in our bedroom. To me it is symbolic of the beauty I carry from the days of my youth into my marriage, it reminds me of the beauty I see every day around me and in all who enter and leave our bedroom day by day.
Have a look in Mel's bedroom and if you're inspired, please leave a link here so I can peak in yours.
