Fun Monday ... roses , angels and other useless stuff!

Another Monday, another Fun Monday!
I joined forthe first time last week, and I enjoyed it very much!
So here we go again!
Our host for this week is Angela.
First of all, here's this week's asignment:

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!

This is what you see standing next to my bed. I sleep on the left side of the bed.
Traditionally, one would have a small closet on either side of the bed but we never got round to buying those . There was always something else we needed more...
So, no drawers here. My husband made round tables out of hardboard,
and I decorated them to fit a romantic bedroom.
I sometimes use lace as a top cloth, now I have one in Organza.
The potted rose is not real, they are silk roses.

This is the view from my bed.

This lamp is a souvenir from our holliday in the Provence.
We have two of them now, one on each side of the bed.
They are not identical, and we bought them as a souvenir from the Provence.
This is the first one we bought, we bought the other one two or three years later...

Our wedding picture ...
Oh, that clock does not work. Well it would if I put batteries in it, but it makes way too much noise! I use the little black one, if ever I need one, because I usually wake up before it goes off!

Yes, I believe in angels ...
I have scented candles, dried rosebuds, rose scented handcream
... and a eye gel I have to use every night, I keep it upright between those rosebuds!

Between the round table and the bed is a small table to put my glass of water on.
There's usually a little magazine on it ( that I don't get to read!)
I keep all of this handcream there as well, but I always forget to use it!!

In other words ...
A clock that does not work, magazines I don't read, handcream I don't use,
and scented candles that never burned ...
But at least it's pretty , isn't it?
