Never underestimate the power of the comment

Ladies, I cannot thank you enough for your lovely, comforting comments. They have meant so much to me in my gloom.
Now for some answers. So many of you have commented about the lamp. This is an Ikea lamp. It has been pimped. I cannot remember the name of it but I am sure both the base and shade are still available there as it has been around quite a while. I painted the base in Farrow and Ball Parma Gray. I saw this over at Vanessa's quite a while back and she helped me out with it, being the sweet lovely person that Vanessa is. Do you ever visit Vanessa? Well go so hi. I'll wait.

Oh, you're back? Good. Just another quick observation. Do you ever go to make the bed in the morning (or late afternoon, no one is here to judge) and see the sun streaking in and wish you could just hop back in? That is how I felt this morning and thought of all of you and snapped this photo.
That's it, really. And just to say "Thank you" once again.

That is a lovely lamp and it goes so well with your curtains. Very summery.

I have the cushion version of that lamp..if you know what I mean!...and for a minute there I thought you'd popped into MY bedroom.Have the same CK bedding,and yes...often do want to get back in...and would do if there wasn't my furry friend barking at me for her breakfast/walk.

Oooo my Mum has that pretty lamp too, the bed looks sooooooo inviting. I always fancy a little nap at around 4pm, but Twiglet shouts in my face, are you asleep mummy :)

Yes indeed the bed looks cozy! I love, love, love the corner with the lamp, curtains and the beautiful granny cushion. Perfect together!

Comments do make a person feel great.

Some days are just like that. It makes it so much harder not to climb back in under the covers when one's bed is so inviting. Sometimes it's just appropriate to nap!

I often feel like that when I see the sun streaming through the window onto our bed. :) xxx

Thanks so much for the comment and sorry for the delay. For some reason it got sent to my spam box.. Nice to meet you and so sorry to hear about your teeth. Your room looks so cozy! Nice to hear your daughter will be heading to Pittsburgh. Hope she enjoys her time at Robert Morris!

Sometimes I actually DO hop back in! Can I come live with you?

Elyse said...

I'm with you again. I paint a lot of things Parma Gray (the tin never seems to run out) and as for getting back into bed - the height of delightful decadence, especially when the sheets look as good as yours.

i don't underestimate the power of a comment - i would just like a few!
your bed looks so cosy and inviting - so pretty.
i love parma grey too - i have painted a plate rack and a cupboard in it and will probably use again.
have a good weekend

I am often tempted and sometimes succumb, only for half an hour or so sshh!
Your bed looks very cozy too!

I can see why you would consider jumping back into that bed, it does look so comfy! I have just read about your wisdom tooth...That is so painful. Unbeleivably to me now, I had all 4 pulled at once at the hospital. It was agony afterwards and I counted the minutes until I could take next pain killers. It took 6 months for me to be able to fully open my mouth again as i could before the "extractions". I was convinced they broke my jaw! I looked like a hamster with nuts stuffed in my cheeks for a week. Glad you are feeling better!

I love your cozy spot there, I'd have climbed back in too if it wasn't for the little monkeys who would follow me there. I love your lamp shade too. It's I decorated my two little monkey's room in that pattern when they were younger and shared a room - I still love it and little G now has the rug in her room. I didn't get them that sweet shade though.
