today's nightstand belongs to lauren of pure style home whose blog is filled with lovely bits of inspiration. if you haven't checked her out...make sure to!
this is a photo of my nightstand as it looks most of the time. i use a dresser because i love a big nightstand and attempt to keep it fairly empty (which doesn't always happen ;) so there's room for a glass of water at night, and a book or magazines (but it drives me crazy at night when i can't find room to put my water back on my nightstand because there's a stack of magazines or a book in the way, and the worst is when i spill water all over.)
i keep a pretty smelling linen spray along with my vintage pierced ginger jar lamp. things often just accumulate here and get moved around and right now i have the cute photo my mom gave to me of our boys.
my nightstand is the landing place for my glasses and cell phone at night and i always keep a pretty little something out to put the day's jewelry and my hair rubberband in before bed (pictured is a milk glass 'hands' plate). i love having fresh greens and flowers on my nightstand too and usually do.
