I have been collecting pages from magazines for years as I am sure many of you do. My tastes have changed quite a bit in the past 20 years. When I was sitting in my english chintz rooms in Connecticut all those many years ago no one could have convinced me that I would be living with such an eclectic mix of belongings from our travels and loving it all. What is essential for us, as these picutres remind me, is very high ceilings and what I do not have in 'The Rental' is very high ceilings. I get more and more nervous as those containers inch their way across the Pacific Ocean. Even more so now that I realise their is not a single nail in the walls. They took them all out when they painted the house before our arrival. I am sure you can start to understand my dilemna. When I asked about hanging our artwork the property manager suggested I could hang a few things. Well.... if there is a will there is a way is what I always say. I am planning my strategy. In the meantime it is always fun to look back at these pages.
Apologies, I do not recall where these images came from. This is before blogging days.
