Eeeeeeeeeeeeep! I KNOW RIGHT? Is this not the most amazing thing you have EVER SEEN?!
So. Flippin. Cool. It’s from a 2009 multi-media exhibition by Brian Kaspr and Payton Turner. I’m so sad I never got to see it in person, although, it’s probably just as well since the whimsy factor in the room would have spun my head clear off my shoulders.
This wallpaper reminds me of everything…of my grandmother’s dining room…of Victorian grandeur…of Trapper Keepers and pencil boxes…of happy days spending lunch breaks in the schoolyard swapping stickers with my friend Heather (yes, we were Sticker Nerds, thank you)…and now I’m wondering what I did with all those stickers? They were too precious to put on my binders like the other kids…what did I do with them? Where is that shoe box? How am I going to make this ridiculously awesome wallpaper at home WITHOUT THAT SHOE BOX?
And this, my friends, is why I hoard things.
