Bedroom Junk Pt 3

Yes, there's more junk ...alot more. Last weekend I cleaned out my bedroom and filled two bins with stuff to throw out, plus 3 bags of clothes were given to charity. The amount of dust in the room filled THREE dustpans full (I am ashamed to say). I really should have taken 'before and after' photos. It is not the same room anymore.

Anyway, here are a few more treasured items from among the rubble:
 I love wind up toys. I could probably write a whole post about how cool wind up toys are, particularly robots. This is a vintage replica robot I bought at a Sci-Fi exhibition. In the background is a great photo of my Gran in the 1940s at a pub in Adelaide. She is the one in the white hat.
 I adore Ricky Gervais. This is an autographed photo of him in the movie 'Night at the Museum'. I love the pic because it combines my love of Ricky and my love of monkeys. Next to the Ricky photo is a 1950s toilet roll dolly.

Another shelf full of goodies! This Rooster and Egg sit there, just chillin out together, it vaguely amuses me. I got them in a market in Ubud, Indonesia. One of the most beautiful places I have ever been, I had such a ball there. In the background are more travel souvineers: a stuffed camel from Kashgar, (North West China) and a sand art of some pandas which I got the first time I went to Beijing.

  1. Glad to hear you cleaned out your bedroom and everything. I find it's one of the better feelings, when you change around everything as it's almost like you're getting a new room! Some interesting stuff found as well. Cool post!

  7. My room isn't any less dusty. My computer has easily sucked in at least one dustpan worth already.
