Fun Monday ~ Bedside Table?

 Make sure you scroll on down to the next post for my Bloggy Giveaway which is going on all week…

Our hosts for Fun Monday this week are the Lurchers. Here’s their assignment…

So continuing in the spirit of “being interested in people”, I would like to know, or see, what’s on, in or under your bedside table! So open those draws and bare your soul to us! Is there anything special there that has a story or a memory that you can tell us about? Books that you keep there to delve into from time to time? Trinkets that you don’t know where else to put? Let’s see!

My condo here in Southern California is nice and small. I had to find a very little bedside table that would fit next to my bed and still let us open the doors to the armoire. So not much room for clutter but let’s see if there are any surprises in the drawer of the night table…


On top the current reads. On the bottom shelf a basket filled with additional books I want to get to soon. If I was in my home in Washington for this Fun Monday I’d have a lot more fun stuff to reveal like notes from my kids when they were little. Costume Jewelery from my mother-in-law’s stash. Old goodies that have never gotten cleaned out…


We’ve been in our condo for a little over a year. I haven’t had enough time here to find surprises. My tabletop has my current reads; Pilgrim’s Inn by Elizabeth Goudge, My ESV Bible, Taste & See a devotional by John Piper, Ancient Christian Devotional (A year of Weekly Readings),  A notebook to write down anything noteworthy. The last thing on my table top is a coaster that we got in Ventura at Anacapa Brewing Co. for my coffee cup when my Dear brings me coffee in bed on Saturday mornings. In my drawer there are a couple pens, lip gloss, hand lotion, and sermon notes that end up in my Bible that I clean out and put in the drawer.


Here’s a photo showing how close the armoire door comes to the table.

I hope you enjoyed your visit to my little corner of the condo. Head over to the Lurcher’s for more Fun Monday. You’ll find the participants in the sidebar…

Photobucket is holding all my photos I stored with them from 2007-2015 hostage. They have blacked out all those photos on my blog posts. OH BOTHER! I’m slowly cleaning up my posts.

  1. I love your tall , skinny bedside lamp–does the trick without taking up a lot of tabletop space. So how long have you been a condo resident and what’s the verdict?

  2. I like your lamp, the shade is pretty. I adore baskets. The whale coaster is just my FAVORITE!!! I heart whales! I am calm looking at your photos. I forgot how calm I feel when my bedside is tidy. I think this FM will still get me to tidy up if even after the fact!

  3. Your bedroom is gorgeous! I love the books, they look well loved! I’m very thankful to not be showing my bedroom or bedside table. It is the most cluttered room aside from the kids’ playroom. You cannot see my bedside table for all the clothes stacked on it.

  4. Your room does look relaxing and calm. It is the absence of clutter. I know you are in a difficult living situation, away from Wa., but there is something to be said about being away from “stuff”. I would love to be away from stuff and them come home to find the cleaning fairy had sorted and purged it all!
    Happy reading in your relaxing calm corner.

  5. I keep a notebook in my drawer as I get my best ideas for blogging in the middle of the night and if I don’t write them down I forget by morning! Your tidiness puts me to shame and you’ve actually reminded me my hubby hasn’t brought me coffee in bed for quite a while!!

  6. Thanks for showing the book titles. In addition to peering at the nightstands, I have become curious about what folks are reading.

    And, oh yes indeed, “Save the Ales.”

  7. I’ve been to Anacapa Brewing Company! Grew up in So. Cal…. lived in Washington too. Seems like we have a lot in common. Lovely furniture, great post, I enjoyed it.
