Ellipsis - Monday Photo Shoot #7: Furniture









The theme of Carly's Monday Photo Shoot this week is Furniture:
Ahhh... is there anything better after a long, difficult day then to come home and sink into a favorite couch or chair? It's one of the best comforts ever! So, for this week, lets pay tribute to the comfy, well worn, furniture in our lives!

OK, I admit this is not my favorite chair, which in my case happens to be a chaise, but...having been on a road trip this weekend where I slept badly on a hideaway couch left me longing for my very own 4 poster honey pine bed, fabulously comfortable with a firm, king sized mattress about a mile off the floor, soft down pillows, linen sheets (ancient and patched and wonderfully soft) and at this time of year, because the nights are getting cooler, a washable habutai silk and velvet channel stitched comforter...all of which are pictured above. My bedroom is truly my retreat. There's no TV in there, but there are books...and it is one of the best comforts ever to climb up onto my bed and curl up with a book.

Hey, I've been in that room. And the picture doesn't nearly do it justice.

The older I get (and I started saying this around age 32), the better bed feels! Could that in part have anything to do with that it's a place there are no bills or garbage to take out?

I miss my down comforter... my husband can't sleepo with it. aaah, compromise!

Oh, almost forgot... wondered if you'd seen this film. I posted something for my artistic bloggy friends on my third blog called Looky Here. If you want to check it out, here's the link;

Sweet dreams Judi!

Hi Judi :)

Wow that is a beautiful bed! I can see climbing in there and pulling a nice warm blanket around me as I read a good book! After the week you had, I can completely understand why that would be a perfect place to relax! Good take on the subject!
