Happy Birthday Beautiful Friend....and My Bed Post.

Dearest Brook, I wish you a truly wonderful birthday. You've been such a good friend to me over the past 5 years. I cherish our time chatting about all matter of things, sharing thoughts, troubles and dreams, and of course treasure hunting together. I love that we share a passion of all things vintage, girly and pink. You are the only friend of mine who gets that about me lol. I wish you all the very best in life and may all your wishes and dreams come true. I can't wait for our dinner date this week :)

The past few weeks I've been overwhelmed with blogging pals tagging me. I'm so honoured and humbled by the fact you want to know more about me. I apologise for not playing along, I hope I haven't offended anyone. With so many at once I just felt a little tagged out :)

One tag though from Chantal at Interior Dreaming simply asked me to post a picture of my bed. I wish I had a deliciously glamourous bedroom I could show off just as I dream to have someday but alas I don't. My bed is lovely though, an Australian oak sleigh bed. I found these pics in my files of my bed taken a few years ago. My room hasn't changed in that time. I do have different bedding for the different seasons. This photo was taken in spring. Sorry it's not so clear.

I posted this second pic to show a little closer view of the bedding. The quilt and one pillow is Laura Ashley and another pillow is Rachel Ashwell. Look at my gorgeous baby Tigger! He's all grown up now but still as loveable. He's the friendliest cat I've ever known. Sometimes I think he thinks he's a dog lol.

This pic is of one of the guest beds I use at my dads farm house. There is another bedroom next door and each room is partitioned from the living area with gorgeous candy striped curtains. It's so much fun! My dad has promised to send me some shots of the guest house soon to show you. He's a much better photographer than me lol.

Another bedroom I can't wait to show you over the next couple of weeks is my guestroom at my mum's home on the lake, and two - too die for - patchwork quilts my aunty lovingly made for me - absolutely stunning!

This last image is of my dream bed - currently owned by Paris Hilton :)

For anyone out there who wants to show off their bedrooms I'd LOVE to see them :)
Please let me know if you make a post like this.

Jane - I can't wait to see your bed and this post you mentioned. My favourite rug in a bedroom is an aubusson :)

I'm sorry I've never commented on your blog but I want you to know I visit often looking to see "what interior designers are doing" :)
I also love your "kitchen love" section.

driftwood shack - LOL I wish my bed looked this neat everyday. My husband has a bad habit of dumping his clothes all over it too.

Mz frou frou and Joni - thank you for your sweet comments about Tigger. Joni I'm sorry I made you sad. I've been surrounded by all kinds of pets all my life and I still have a few past favourites I miss all the time.

Oh Tigger, you're gorgeous and you look like a very loving life partner!
I was also nominated to share my bed but as I am living in temporary digs while we build, I just have to share dream beds for the time being. My whole life is in cardboard boxes in the garage..... went hunting for the parts of hubby's golf buggy on the weekend....couldn't find them... oh and my son is longing for his rock collection... now where would that be ... too hard! A-M xx
