On my wall

Hollie tagged me for this one, so here’s some pics of what’s on my bedroom wall right now:

Framed vintage Needlecraft mag.

Vintage Chinese cigarette advertising poster, birdy prints from Etsy.

Lyrebird mirror and ballerina requistites-t-t-t-t-teeeeeeets…

Above dressing table, more ballerinas and op-shopped Eiffel Tower watercolour.

And a bonus pic of china doggie friend for cuteness:

If you’re reading this, then you’re tagged, take some pics and show us what’s on your walls!

    Your home looks so beautiful with all those vintage pictures and mirrors. I remember those circular pictures with the ballerinas.

    Very, very cool style.

    Thanks hon. It’s a bit incongruous with our 70’s brick veneer house, but *shrug*…
    My sis and I had the ballerina pics as kids, but these aren’t the original ones.
