the kings of wallpaper


The Jaskies came and stayed with us for a week. It was nice having them both sleep in our bed, whilst Michal and I took the couch in the living room. They arrived with news from the west and wild cherry liqueur, home made by Jasiek. It was the best damn cherry liqueur I have ever tasted! My dad is becoming a master of the brew. They brought over a litre and we polished it off in one evening. Apart from hanging the Jaskies were put into good use too. My dad and I hung some wallpaper in the living room. A wallpaper feature wall. It was bloody harder than expected. The damn thing was very difficult to align and it takes a lot of patience to get all the bubbles out. Like covering your exercise books with contact. Except on a bigger scale. See end result below.

Good job! Perfectly aligned...

I like the three frames pics on the left there. Like the fish.

BTW - does you wall have a touch of pink in it, or is the couch so red that the colour gives the wall that look?

Nah, no pink. It's like a gray mauve or something. The frames I brought back from NY. The cut outs I made from Japanese paper courtesy of Tabitha.

I couldn't see you in a pink house, but thought I'd check.

As for the frames/cut outs... crafty!

Looks ace. A significant improvement on Brezhnev/Hoennecker!

the wallpaper is EXCELLENT. And the hat alignment is masterful. The couch is very BIG.

That is the greatest photo of your parents in wallpaper hats! They look so jolly I almost started to talk into my computer screen to catch up with them.
