The post about doing stuff

I am having a making and finding week, searching for lovely vintage linens, christmas whatnots and wallpapers. The latter is for home as I have decided that covering the walls with some floral tribute to the 70's is exactly what is needed at the moment.


I have brought home some very dubious samples which were met with much amusement, luckily my other half knows I go with what I like anyway, (the more they laugh ...the more I order...) Some new bags are waiting to go on the littleteawagon shelves and I'm hoping it will be a productive week all round.....


Have a lovely week :)

  1. I grew up with fabric like that, it really takes me back.
    At one point during the seventies my bedroom was orange, bright orange floral wallpaper and orange floral bedding!!

  3. Ahhhhh Jane, my lovely, you really know how to lift a girl! Truly scrummy , bright and beautiful pictures which is just what I needed!

    I'd LOVE to get some 70's paper onto a wall or two, but no way hosay from Mr H. He knows that I usually do whatever I want with regards to the house, and I am usually met with 'why bother asking for my opinion, you do the opposite anyway' when I ask him.....but seventies is an era he just can't get to grips with and he puts his foot firmly down! Will just have to chip chip chip away a little harder then! ha ha!

    Hope your week remains a bright and cheery one!

    Love Vanessa xxx

  4. I too have been shopping for 60's/70's wallpaper, and are trying to convince my better half to wallpaper the landing! I think he is coming round to the idea :)
    Lovely vintage fabric, and love your etsy shop!

  7. I've been thinking a lot lately about lemony 70's fabric. Strange how something so odd tries to soothe our minds. Love your pile.

    I really admire anyone who can wallpaper so I'd say go for it if you lived with me and paper away Jane. My 70's bedroom wall was covered in purple paper covered in owls and other stuff I can't remember.

  9. Jane, gorgeous bags, fabric...everything! I am having the great "wallpaper debate" in my home as well. I want wallpaper from the 60's or 70's, and Husband is none too enthusiastic!
