La chambre d’amis. Guests at the French house

It’s not easy finding a battery operated light that is bright enough to steer you to the bathroom in the middle of the pitch black, light pollution free nights we have here. We have wiring, but it’s not connected up in the tulip room.

So I draped a beaded glass cover over this plastic mushroom. I hope to distract our imminent guests with the old pencil drawing of a tulip. It would distract me anyway. And I ironed the pillowcases too. I vacuumed the cobwebs and checked for loose rubble amongst the stone walls above. And what if there are all the components of a wooden staircase stacked under the bed?

    Looks inviting! I am sure they will be sound asleep, between the real dark and the country quiet, and they will be thrilled to get such wonderful rest. And who wouldn’t sleep well on ironed linens?

    The tulip drawing would certainly distract me, as would tracing the pattern on that gorgeous bedlinen and focussing on the old nails in the wooden planked wall. Plenty to distract and I’m sure peaceful slumbers are guaranteed!

    I had to smile – this sounds very familiar! I’m sure your guests will be so charmed by you and your corner of France that they will not care about, or even notice, the stairs under the bed. Amicalement, Elizabeth

    A truly splendid old bed with crisp bedding. Looks perfect to me, especially if the weather is warm.
