A Plucky Project

Do you have a vintage paper problem?  You know, greeting cards...wrapping paper, etc.  Have you been known to roll around on the floor of a stranger's attic clutching scraps of vintage ephemera and gleefully shouting "Have you SEEN this?" to terrified fellow estate sale shoppers?  Yeah, me neither.  Recently, I found some vintage wallpaper with an undersea motif...starfish, sea urchins, seaweed.  It's silver, for Pete's sake.  There wasn't enough to cover a wall in my turquoise bathroom, so I decided on the next best thing.  I scrounged around for a few of the old-picture-frames-I-buy-because-they-cost-a-quarter, and put pieces of my beloved wallpaper under glass.  What do you think?


  1. Wonderbosa!! It looks so gooooood. The minute I saw the first picture I knew that had to be your turquoise bath room. It is almost the same turquoise as mine!

    1. It makes me so happy that we both have turquoise bathrooms. We were meant to be friends! xox

  2. I think that I am super-jealous! I am in love with vintage papers and images...this was a great score!

  3. I think YOU are brillant and your pictures are fantastic. Love the way you repurposed the paper and frames. What a great project! Thanks for posting. xxoos
