Mysterious Room

This postcrosser from the Ukraine recently became a mother and remarked on what a miracle it is to have a child. What a lovely sentiment. I was taken by this mysterious room. The lampshade seems to be made with a bamboo sieve, there's a conch affixed to the wall, a pitcher and cups by the window, a rather scratchy looking coverlet and pillow, and a glimpse of apartments and houses outside the dirty window. I don't know if this is simply a postcard of a humble room or someone's famous abode.
