Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep

“Sleep” is the theme of this week’s A Word a Week Challenge at A Word in Your Ear


The Sun King Louis XIV slept here when he was in residence at the Palace of Versailles, in France.


Queen Caroline’s bedroom at Schloss Nymphenburg in Munich, Germany. On 25 August, 1845 the child destined to become King Ludwig II was born here.

This bed with its beautiful patchwork quilt is in a tiny cob and thatch cottage in Dorset. The cottage was the birthplace of the author Thomas Hardy, and where his early novels were written. Perhaps he slept here.


In September the city of Toowoomba, in Queensland Australia, hosts the annual Carnival of Flowers. This “garden bed” is purely ornamental – maybe a bird slept here.

At the Safari Desert Camp, in the Wahiba Sands in Oman, is a collection of traditional Bedouin tents complete with beautifully decorated furniture. I slept here!

  1. The bedding is all spectacular, but would I want to sleep in the bed???? What a marvelous assortment! 🙂
    BTW, Carol, awards are still out there. When you next visit my site check out for your blog. This is my way of saying that you are a special blogging friend. Feel free to do with it what you will – no rush – no pressure. The world won’t collapse if you do nothing, nor will I. I just wanted to say, “Thanks for being a good friend/sis.” 🙂 Marsha 🙂
