i found this site, sfgirlbybay that has some great stuff, and makes me a little homesick too! i lived in california for most of my life, and san francisco was just a short drive up the coast. a recent post on her site was "zen and the art of bedrooms", and i do love my bedroom. i spend a lot of time there, and have it in colors i love. and while the rooms on sfgirl's site are light and airy, mine is saturated with color. but i think sometimes that i spend too much time in my room, though. it is my sanctuary. i go there at the end of the day and watch my shows on television, i go there when there is no one else home, (that is a lot!) i drag my laptop into my bed and do my blogging, and sometimes i even do my handsewing and beadwork for work there! maybe that contributes a little to my insomnia, since they say you should only use your bed for sleeping and sex. but i am surrounded by my favorite things and colors here!
i have my angels over my head right here, above my headboard. i have my virgen de guadalupe to protect me.
i have this chubby little girl to remind me what a cutie i was! this used to belong to my grama and she gave it to me. it was hanging in her house when i was little, and makes me think of my grandparents that are gone now. these flowers are a painting i painted a long time ago, and i decided i love the way it looks in my room. the pinks and lavenders pick up the wall colors a bit, and it just looks right in here. it's not a great painting, but i still love it.
and then on my bed, i have my warm cozy beautiful blanket that i curl up in while watching the tube, or blogging, or googling, or whever with my computer. and at the other end of the room, i have a bookcase that is full of my art books, magazines, some of my collection of cookbooks, and other reading materials to curl up with all cozy here! i have decided i need one of those little tea trays with little legs that fold up, that you can put over your lap while in bed. that would make it perfect!
