Playing along with Pip from Meet me at Mikes.  This weeks theme is bedside and was chosen by Pottymouthmama.


The shelf that holds all kinds of fun things:

The Narwhal toy I bought for Joh in San Francisco

The French kitty my beautiful friend Josephine made for my birthday this year

Assorted Plush Microbes, and a zombie kitty

The enormous blanket that took almost an entire year to knit

Assorted warm things, hand made and vintage

My collection of PJ’s and nighties


My friend Rosa-may drew this incredible picture of me, wearing the crochet scarf she made for me.  I love it so much!


The set of drawers that my grandfather made for my mother, that I repainted blue as a teenager.  I had been holding on to the lamp stand for years without a shade waiting for the perfect thing, then one day I found this at the Surry Hills Markets.  It’s perfect in so many ways.  I’m so glad I waited until I found something I really liked.


On the wall is the gorgeous print entitled ‘making friends’ from the artists APAK.  I purchased it from the lovely Outre Gallery.  A little gift for Joh a few years back.  Just because I love him so.

Gosh. You have great things. Great great great friendy drawing. Great plants. I really like plants in bedrooms! When I was little my nanna said they would suck all the oxygen from the room and you would DIE if you had a plant in your room! Nanna. That is obviously not true. This lady is alive and kicking! I love the Narwhal. I love that you bought that print from Outre! I wonder if Gemma was there?! xx

Oh my gosh, aren’t Nana’s the funniest! That’s so cute :)
The narwhal by far the coolest toy i’ve bought :)
I’m in Sydney, does Gemma work there or in Melbourne?
Thank you Pip for your lovely sweet comments!
