The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Aug. 6, 2022

Badge by Shelley Krupa..

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “wallpaper.” Use it however you’d like. Have fun!

When I was about ten , two of my sister’s had left home and I was sharing a bedroom with my sister F the one who was a fashion designer. She had this idea to brighten our room up. Surprisingly Dad actually agreed to it.

The idea was that we would carefully cut colourful pictures and full page ads out of magazines and then paste them on the wall like a giant collage! It took ages to collect all the pages and it took even longer to arrange and then paste them on to the wall. If I say so myself it looked rather impressive! Very like the wall in the photo below.

Not long after we finished the wall I was ill, I had Bronchitis which developed into Pneumonia and I was a little delerious and all those pages and adverts danced and moved around. I never forgot that! It was the best wallpaper I ever had!

In thr photo below I am a lot younger than ten and I am with my cousin, F. Is sitting on the gate.

    Now that is cool idea for wallpaper – hmmmm the creative brain is churning – would it be inappropriate for a grown assed bloke of 56 to do a fishing magazine collage wall, I wonder. Or a Zen wall, now that would be awesomes.

    What have you started, Willow xxx

    What a fun idea for a young girl’s room! My parent’s (surprisingly) agreed to let my brother paint the walls in his bedroom black! It was actually a really nice look! He had Christmas lights hanging around and posters on his wall (early 1970’s). He kept it clean and orderly, so this was a plus. We often laugh about it to this day. Sometimes stepping outside the box is a really fun thing!

      Yes I agree and we loved our wall!! …black walls and in some cases ceilings and floors were popular with boys in the 70s ….but a tidy clean teenage boy…..well that’s really something 😂😂💜💜💜

    That was a good idea, and a great story, Willow.
