Steamounk on Sunday: Ugly Wallpaper and Pretty Jewellery
I'm here but briefly, to celebrate my having completed the wallpapering.
Just one more piece to go.
And, yes, the paper is ugly, being dark and faintly sinister and purple, green
and that most threatening of colours, maroon.
But for a dollar a roll, it was perfect. It looks the right age, fussy and overdone.
It looks vaguely hand blocked.
And the design is forgiving enough to hide issues on the walls.
Talking of walls, here is the kind of room I'm going for.
Please note, however, Hubby does not have ginger mustachios...
Holman Hunt actually intended the room to be ghastly.
A soulless place full of tasteless new furnishings; the nasty shiny piano,
the gaudy wall hangings and the brash carpet.
Now, I just want to know where I can find that gorgeous round table.
And I wonder if I can make a feature wall with grapes and roses.
How tastes change.
This week's Steampunk on Sunday featured artist is Wendy
who makes some lovely Steampunk jewellery
and some highly covetable Steampunk notebooks.
Valentine's Day is coming
and you know you want to get that special someone
something that shows you care
