So to you, humble nightstand, we pay homage.
And now, here are the submissions I recieved for the project.
The first submission is from my sister-in-law, Amy. Sorry this one is so small. I see a lamp, remote control, a crime novel? and a picture of her (very cute) family.
Allie submitted this one. The little lighthouse lamp reminds me of Oregon.Here is Kimba's. This is what she had to say about her bedside table, "Stuffed full bin of baby items, scriptures, three books (Little Women, Life of Pi, Healthy Sleep Habits, Happy Child), four children's books, boobie pads, two different remotes to the tv (one of them isn't even needed anymore) foot lotion, chapstick, cuticle creme, baby Orajel, Cortizone creme (i dun got bit on my ankles!) water bottle. Lamp. Pretty much everything but the kitchen sink." Useful and cute, that's what I like about it.Here are three pictures Kjersti submitted. She calls herself a bedside table 'party pooper' but I don't know why. She sent along some photos of the collage she has hanging above her bedside table as well, and it was fun to see the whole area where her bedside table hangs out. Unlike many of us, she reports that her bedside table is one of the cleanest places in her whole house (mine is a disaster).This is my dad's bedside table. I'm pretty sure that he was not in charge of the ceramic cow and doily placement here. It looks spic and span though, which is just like my dad.And then there's my mom, who didn't even send a picture of her bedside table, just the floor in front of it. I can just see her reading at night and then simply chucking the books and magazines off the side of the bed when she was ready to go to sleep. Typical Mel Mel if you ask me.
This is Liv's bedside table. She states that the book she is reading is not on her bedside table because she has it packed in her purse, ready to be toted with her to work, and the one she just finished is in another part of the house. Liv is obviously a fastidious housekeeper who has great taste in lamps.Liv was kind enough to send two photos and I have to admit that this one is my favorite. She actually opened up her bedside table drawer and took a picture. The thing I love most about this is that she has a calculator in there. Because, hey, you never know when you might need to do some number crunching.
I did mention that I might have a little vote for this, but I think I'll just ask you a question and then we can discuss in the comment section. The question is this: What do you think was the most unusual item on, in, or around any of the bedside tables?
