What’s on your coffee table at the moment?

I really enjoyed the thread a few weeks ago about what people kept on their bedside table, found it such a window into people’s lives and I’m a nosey cow

So in the same vein - what’s on your coffee table?

On mine right now there is -
- A small gold tray with a candle, little succulent plant and a small vasey type bottley pot decorative thing
- 3 coasters; one with my glass of coke on it, one with DPs glass of coke right fucking next to it, one at the other side
- 4 chocolate wrappers
- A dummy
- DPs phone
- Pair of earphones
- DPs feet

Your turn?...

A whole kidskin dyed red.

A large majolica plate.

A scent diffuser (because I forgot to close the door while cooking a curry).

I'm actually quite glad you didn't ask what's on the floor beside your coffee table because if you had, the list would have been a lot longer...

Don’t have one.

Treasures Mon 21-May-18 00:48:24

ijustwannadance standard size, I'd say, about 2 feet x 3 feet ish. It doesn't look as bad as my list sounds because some things are on top of other things - I can still see visible tabletop.

Thanks thug, it's an impressive list, I'm quite proud grin

The reason I don't have one is due to the way they become dumping grounds!

Camomila Mon 21-May-18 15:23:55
