Things I’m Loving: Beside My Bed

I woke up this morning and saw this view. It made me super happy so I thought that I would share. These are a few things that I’m loving that reside beside my bed.

  • My night stand. I used to have a stool with a plastic tub on it that I threw my glasses, chap stick and whatever book I was reading in when I went to sleep. This is so much better. (p.s. Ikea is discontinuing this line if you’ve been eying their pieces like I have)
  • My tiny mercury glass lamp. I used to have an ugly student table lamp that sat on the floor since I had no place to put it. I’ve got a super low watt bulb in this one and it’s perfect for my nightly reading.
  • My big pile of books. My own copy of Divergent came in the mail, that lives below a neat devotional my inlaws gave me for Christmas that I’ve been loving as well. I’m currently reading The Graveyard Book (it’s too early to have an opinion) and as is always the case ALL the books I requested from the library came off the hold at the same time. Don’t they look pretty? I’m so excited about every one of them.
  • My inspiration fabric. For a long time I’ve been wanting to do something to our boring tiny bedroom. I think I’ve found the fabrics I’m planning on using. They’ve been sitting on my night stand so I can decide if they feel right in there.


  1. Looks like you love books as much as I do! ;) And I’m LOVING that you introduced the fabric to the room first!

  2. woow great post

  3. haha I never thought about it as introducing the fabric to my room but I love that!

  4. Is that Tina Givens fabric with the birds? I love it.

  5. why yes it is a tina givens design :)

  6. Ohhh Neil Gaimen! I preread the book for my tween – enjoyed it!

  7. The Graveyard Book – I read that within the last couple of years. If I remember right, I didn’t particullary love it (and I do enjoy good YA reads). I recently read The Strange Case of Origami Yoda which was pretty good (there is a sequel about Darth Paper). What devotional did you receive?

  8. ooh I love good book suggestions. I’m almost done with the graveyard book. I think at first it bugged me because it was a slower pace (and definitely different than what I’m normally drawn too) but I decided I could use the stroll in the park as opposed to the all out run through a book I’ve been having.

    I definitely need to check out those ones you mentioned.

    And the devotional is called “Jesus Calling” by Sarah Young. I’ve been needing the reminder to trust God so this has been perfect and wonderfully comforting to me (plus each day is just a paragraph so there’s no excuses and the small amount of text packs a punch)

  9. How cool is that!!! thanks so much for sharing this with us at Sharing Saturday :)
