childhood wallpaper - 1979

 
when I was young I shared a bedroom with my sister.  L is 9 years older than I was, so being the late 70s early 80s she was with it.  I adored her clothes, shoes, hair dos.
 
the bedroom is being decorated at present.  behind the wardrobes were the wallpaper we shared.  i loved the colours, animals.  one strange thing, i remember by bed, up the head end sat the cat, i would pick at the cats face, until the cat had a face no more.   L would careful sketch the eyes, nose, whiskers, yet i would continue to take them away.
 
i cant imagine the whole bedroom covered with this visually noisy wallpaper.  yet at the time it seemed ok.  made me smile to see it again.
