The book I am reading for book club "A Can of Peas" by Traci DePree...in it there is a quote "You can tell so much about a person by what they keep in their home, what they have nearby to comfort themselves in their lonely hours."
Here is corner of our bedroom:
What you see is a closed bookcase with our 'nicer' books in it. A cheap light house print we picked up once at MOA - a sailboat print from Target - a Galilean themometer given to us as a gift, a wooden pen Tim received as a gift, Tim's grandfather's old binoculars, a glass candy dish "Remember the Maine" from one of Tim's great aunts after they passed away, and a box I decoupaged with maps for him...it is decoupaged top, sides, back and inside the drawer.
The single switch plate is just to the left of the bookshelf corner - the double switchplate is at the entrance of the room. I made them as gifts for Tim for Christmas last year - they were the first switchplates that I decoupaged.
