This was a completely unplanned post, but I couldn't help myself. It's amazing how much time you can waste spend messing about with a new digital toy. In this case I was trying to familiarize myself with my new digital camera last weekend, so I took a few photos that I thought I might share here. I am always talking about the books on my nightstand. So here it is--or I should say--here they are. The books and my nightstand. So here is a little tour.
Can you tell I love bookmarks? I collect them and have so many these days and a variety of different styles and designs that I can almost match the bookmark with the book!
I also love scissors. I have more, but I tend to drop them in the bags that hold my current needlework projects and forget about them, so I am always finding them later in places I don't expect them. I do try and keep them in my trusty To Kill a Mockingbird mug (which I received one year from participating in my public library's winter reading program). I do a lot of needlework in my bedroom watching TV so these come in very handy.
These are some of my favorite needlework accessories--scissor fobs and pincushions. I made all of them myself save for the fob on the far left, which a friend made for me.
There is a very handy little shelf below the top of my nightstand, where I keep books that I am only dipping into occasionally or books that have been 'set aside temporarily'. You might (ahem) recognize a few of them... I do really mean to finish them sometime. Below are bagged needlework projects that I am working on.
And last but not least . . . I debated sharing this one, as I don't want to appear an awful packrat. If I had the space for proper bookshelves I would have them, but these piles are now three deep of new books that I want to read eventually. The closest is made up of mysteries and crime novels, and the other two regular fiction. The books are constantly being shifted about as I pull out titles I want to read and add new books to them. Truly a mount TBR pile!
So, that's my nightstand! What's on your bedside table?
