House of fun

Posted in Uncategorized by guardiangirl on October 2, 2009

“Wouldn’t it be hilarious to have 70s wallpaper with faces on it in the hall?”

No doubt.

I don’t have the final say on the walls of my flat, which is why it’s done out in mint-green woodchip, but if I did I’d cover it in 70s wallpaper and be rolling around laughing.

I have attempted to copy this week’s ‘house of fun’ look as best I can.

The results are pretty much as unsuccessful as ever.

The small yellow framed postcard, barely discernable in the half-dark, was actually made for me by a friend – that’s the closest I can get. It’s also the furthest I could get with my camera, as my flat’s so narrow. It’s a bit like a boat, with none of the charm.

These paintings were a gift from a much-adored friend. Maybe I should ask him to spray ‘Miss’ in big letters across them for me in a declaration of independence. I could even go one further and ask him to spray ‘Ms’.

Conclusions:

  • I’ll stick with what I got. It might not be glamorous, but at least it’s not black and yellow.
