Another of our house's interesting quirks...

I would love to know what this house looked like back in the day. Now and then, I catch a tempting glimpse of its past. Remember that horrifying floor I uncovered in the boys' room?

I don't spend a whole lot of time in the back of Teenage Daughter's closet. I knew she had neat old wallpaper, but until I went in there to take some pictures, I'd forgotten how stinkin' cute it was!
She's got a beret! We can't seem to decide what this little creature actually is -- any guesses?

And they've got little gas pumps -- squee!

It's in poor condition and I know most people would have painted over it as soon as they moved in, but it's survived for so many decades I just can't bring myself to do that, especially since it's tucked away from everyday sight.

It's a shame you can't peel it off and frame some of those. Maybe a photograph of them in a frame would be cute.

Now that's true vintage! I wouldn't peel it off either.

Any chance you could peel some off from a back corner and scan it? It would make an adorable fabric through Spoonflower. I'm sure any copyrights would have expired long ago!

Somethings are just better left alone.

Oh, I think it's just precious and needs to be preserved! I think they are rascally rabbits. Thanks for sharing it with SYC.
