I love this space above our bed. I am very lucky that i have a husband who just lets me do what i like and doesn't mind sleeping among flowers, polaroids and birdcages. I so switch things up a bit every now and then and i am always changing the flowers. Today, i took some cuttings from the blossom tree across the road.
On Gilles's side, he has a little jar that i made him just before we got married 6 years ago. I wrote down everything that i loved about him on pieces of paper and put them in the jar. I think there are over 100 reasons in there! There are also three polaroids taped up. For our first year wedding anniversary, i packed up a picnic and set off to the river. I left him clues on a piece of paper as to where he would find me so when he woke up, he came down and we had such a lovely picnic. I was 7 months pregnant with Elle at the time. You can see a little video of our anniversary that i made here and my VERY pregnant belly. On my side, i have some dried flowers and some fresh blossom, a brownie camera and a little frame with one of my teacup photographs in. The calendar is by Selina Lake.
I made the book page garland myself. I found an old black beauty book in a charity shop and picked out the pages with the best chapter words along the top. I then stuck on cut out hearts and a doilie for the middle one. It is so simple to make and makes such a lovely touch. the flower garland came from a craft shop and the black board came from a pound shop. I added the lace trim to the top.
I love my bedroom. It has a beautiful bay window and lets a lot of light in. We have rainbows from the crystal in the window when the sun shines and i love the shadows the trees outside make on the wall.
