You've heard the old saying, "Use it up, wear it out, make it do, or do without." Well, that's kind of
where I'm at. Our resources are exhausted and I can't afford to do anything new to our home, but I am in a renewed state of mind and am determined to use what I've got on hand to fix things up a bit.
A few years ago (yes, years ago), one of my daughters-in-law gave me this lovely wallpaper. It was some that she had leftover from one of her projects and there were only a couple of rolls of it, but we have a small house and I knew I could use it somewhere. Most of one of the rolls I used a long time ago to paper the wall next to the bathroom (which adjoins our bedroom, so it kind of tied it all together), and the other I saved to paper our north bedroom wall with. Well, over the weekend I finally got around to it!

I started by deep-cleaning the bedroom. I took down the ceiling fan, took out all the furniture,
and cleaned everything from ceiling to floor. Then I wallpapered the north wall. It may have only
been one wall, but, my! What a difference it made! It sure brightened things up!

The next thing I hope to do, is to keep my eyes open at garage sales and thrift stores for bedding. I'm
acquiring a real taste for sweet, simple and old-fashioned. My goal is to eventually have all white
sheets, white pillowcases, and a white comforter. (Isn't that funny? When I was a child white sheets was all we
had. When I was a teenager and started working and making my own money I vowed that I
would never again sleep on white sheets. I wanted 'color' and 'boldness' in my life. Well, now that I've
had a lot of 'color' and 'boldness' in my life, now all I desire is tranquility and simplicity.)
