If Walls Could Talk

Do you remember that show that was on about 1800 houses and what they found in the walls when doing a remodeling ? I always enjoyed it.
As I was sanding one wall in my bedroom where an old intercom system was I dropped my sandpaper in the hole, and that is what made me think of that show. LOL

My friend Gina is wallpapering my bedroom for me and we ran out of wallpaper so waiting on the new paper to arrive to finish up. I have always wanted a bedroom in all blue and white toile. I have the bed covering and curtains so now with my walls covered all I have to do is new window blinds and cover a chair in matching toile which I have already.

Also if you have ever looked in Charles Faudree's design books you will see his little spaniel dogs which I have a small 4 1/2 x 7 inch paining of those kind of dogs, I found it in a shop in Portland Oregon once while visiting out there.



Then I have my big picture of my last little pug to hang back up in my bedroom. I bought this at a design store here years ago and have always loved it because it looks exactly like my little pug Sissy who died with cancer.



Random pictures I know of dogs so here is one more of a dog candle holder I have and just stuck this odd color candle it for size and have never changed it I will now



I am going to take a nap now well after I eat some chicken and mashed potatoes I made myself for lunch. I need to stay up and watch Queen Victoria tonight. How refreshing to know some Royals did love each other.


Enjoy the rest of your weekend

  1. Charles Faudree lived in Tulsa until his death. His houses here came on the market soon after. I want to wallpaper my powder room in the Beverly Hills Banana Leaf pattern but don't know where to get it or how much or who to hang it. That should be my new years resolution.

  2. The dogs Charles Faudree owned and loved are Cavalier King Charles Spaniels. They are the sweetest, most loving lap dogs and are often used as therapy dogs. I have one, and would never own another breed. The joy this dog brings to us is indescribable!💗🐶

  3. Wallpapering is an art form to me. I have never done any myself. I do admire people who can. I would be like Lucy and Ethel if I tried it. Pretty paper and cute knick knacks. Blessings, xoxo, Susie

  15. I am crazy for toille! I can't have it because our large contemporary art collection would clash terribly with it LOL. But I certainly enjoy it when other people use it!
    It looks terrific!
