PHOTO MONDAY - What's on my bedside table

I get to choose the weekly themes for the month of May and, for this week, I chose the theme 

What's on my bedside table.

Click on any image to enlarge

Well, as you can see from the pic below, my bedside table is quite crowded and, sometimes, I will even squeeze in a mug of hot green tea.  Now, let me see, I have a white metal hold-all where I keep my Lucas Pawpaw Ointment (used as a lip balm), remote controls for TV, VCR & DVD, pens, thermometer, nail scissors and emery board.  I do have a small TV, VCR, & DVD player in my room but I rarely watch TV or movies in my room at night.....they are there.....just in case.  Also, my water bottle which I keep filled with tap water.  The second phone extension.  My mobile phone. My clock radio.  My reading glasses for the book of the moment and, of course, tissues.



I LOVE BOOKS!!
I love to read in bed at night
as you can probably tell by the overloaded shelves of my bedside table
and, quite often, I will have piles of books or sketchbooks and pencils on the floor just by my bed.


I thought I'd play with the Colour Accent option on my camera for the pic below

Care to post  a pic of what's on your bedside table?

~ Love, light and peace ~

  1. I don't have a bed side table to show off here. Basically most everything is in shambles in my bedroom being I been going through many boxes sorting out stuff which many are ending up over at the Veterans Thrift Shop and then deciding what what I want to keep.

    I like your bed side table with all of them books though. I too also love to read.

    Found your blog from Sandy's Sketches and Messes blog.

  4. I am the same way!! Love to read books in bed, tv is there just in case. And the pile beside my bed can get quite large and then I hear about it!!

    Looks like a cozy spot to snuggle and relax.

  7. Your table is well-stocked, Serena. Mine was like that when we slept upstairs, but now I don't do anything but fall into bed and go to sleep....no books, no crosswords, no phone. Just tissues and a clock, just in case! Oh! And a flashlight in case I have to get up...for anything......LOL!

  10. Your bedside table is so neat and tidy....and I love that you have a book shelf underneath. I, too, always have a stack of books beside my bed and usually a journal and some pens.

  11. Well.. mostly it's just the essentials. .. and all the books under are very tidy.

    My bedside table might be tidy and spartan..... but, this is exactly what my downstairs coffee table looks like... and the only reason is probably because I just don't read in bed... I do my reading and tv 'ing down there....

  12. Serena: I love your bedside table, I'm not really a neat freak, mine usually is quite crowded, just not when I took the pics. I can see that you are an advid reader, I wich I was..it's a known fact that readers are more intelligent and it's because of their reading. Take care and let me know the theme for next Monday...Shelly

  13. Hi Serena,
    Oh, how interesting! I have one book and a lamp. I'm in the process of de-cluttering. We are in the process of selling and buying a new house. Arrghh, we have seventeen years of clutter here!
    Hugs,
    Anna

  14. books seem to be the go!
    I have lots of them beside my bed... plus crystals, a statue of Mary, a fan [for those menopausal flushes] & the rose water for the same reason. I pen and notepad for inspirational thoughts at 3am.. and all of this spills onto the floor!

  15. Serena,
    Even though you have more things on your bedside table than me, it still looks good. :)
    Love your table because it has so much storage for your books. You didn't see any books on my table because by the time I go to bed, I am ready to Sleep! LOL
    I do all my reading in the living room or studio.

  16. Sigh... another pretty one. My poor little book step looks awfully pitiful about now. I keep about that many books around too, but I moved that pile out of the picture. oh dear...

  17. Serena those are lovely photos. I love books too, they are all over the place.

  18. I have a nightstand (bedside table) and a headboard, so I have a lot of stuff. I always have paper and pen next to the bed--to write down things running thru my mind that are keeping me awake (so I can forget about them and go to sleep) or dreams--whatever. I should take pictures and post them on my blog. Kind of fun to see yours. :)
