wallpaper samples and an empty bedroom

The local Scrap Store got these wallpaper samples....the old brain started ticking......there was something I had always wanted to do........and if I didn't like would have cost me virtually nothing and I could strip it off and and do it in the normal boring

As I had started a dolls house club some years ago I had collected wallpaper with a small enough design to be used in 1/12 scale.....I  used some of that as well.... I can now part with  the rest off it and clear a space in my house full of crafty stuff.

Not one of the sheets had a complete one......
cut out and reassembled
pasted on the wall

I am grinning from ear to ear....waiting for someone to come down to give their
