oh my...

Just look at this gorgeous vintage wallpaper! I have in my hot hands, a whole roll of it. I do have many plans for this of loveliness... but right now, I'm just sitting here admiring it.
It takes me back to my youth, when Enid Blyton took me to magical places far away. When I would lie under my doona late into the night reading with the torch on. Oh, how I loved those books.
I hope your weekend is looking bright & that it's filled with fun & laughter.
