Nightstand Styling and Keeping it Real!

Welcome friends to Natasha In Oz! I'm so glad you stopped by to say G'Day today. I hope you will have time to stay for a cuppa.

Last week Marty posted about her friend who stages homes for a custom builder and she posted lots of great pictures of her beautifully "staged" kitchen. Looking at all of her pictures inspired me to do a bit of staged decorating around our home so I thought I would start with my nightstand.

A beautiful friend gave me these darling little vases for my birthday so I added some tiny roses to tie in with the pink rose embroidery on the tissue box cover.

The vases are sitting on a linen doily that I found in an Antique market a while ago. I bought 2 of them for $2.

I also added a beautiful Waterford crystal clock to my nightstand vignette. It was a wedding gift.

The lamp shade and base are from Laura Ashley and the base is made of solid brass.

The tissue box cover comes from Ireland. We bought it in Ireland at the Blarney Woolen Mills.

It doesn't look this pretty all the time, though, I assure you!
Normally it looks like this.....messy.....

I always seem to be drinking tea in my bedroom! Hubby is so sweet and brings me a cup most mornings...

always served in our Spode Blue Italian china and always Yorkshire tea.

I always have a photo of my kids and my hand cream on my nightstand. 

I haven't forgotten about a photo of sweet hubby...our wedding picture is hanging on the wall right near our bed!

This is the first thing I see when I wake up in the morning!

I always have magazines in the drawers, on the nightstand, on the floor, under the bed....

I am magazine nut!
