I have a dilemma….there’s a house on my road for sale, I’ve taken great interest in this because it’s a similar size to mine so have been waiting with baited breath for it to appear on the internet to have a nosey. Another neighbour informed me this morning that it has finally been listed! I sat down this evening, aperitif in hand to indulge in a bit of nosing about….but oh my! The vintage wallpaper! Now here’s my dilemma….I use a lot of donated and found things in my art work, letting the materials lead my make…I’ve spotted various loveliness in this house, most notably some Holly Hobby wallpaper. Perhaps this holds extra nostalgia for me as I grew up with Holly Hobby curtains, and a matching lampshade might I add! So…when my future prospective neighbours move in, do I introduce myself, and ask, that when they most probably strip every surface going if I could possibly have some fairly in tact bits of paper (the dining room paper is also pretty lush) will I forever be known as the nutter from number 34, or do I keep schtum and maintain some sort of…normality?? Is that the right word here? What would you do? The house is currently empty so no chance of catching my previous neighbour out and about.
Anyhow, I thankfully have nothing more perplexing to think about currently…but I have lots of projects on the go, far too much to put in one blog post, so here is a little selection of works in progress to have a nosey at…more blog posts to come talking about rust dyeing, stitch, letting the materials guide you. Happy Monday peeps xxx
