august flowers




August flowers from my mom's garden go so nicely with the flowered wallpaper in my childhood room where I've been sleeping for the past week. I chose the wall paper when I was seven and really love the fact that it's still there to greet me when I visit. My mom keeps threatening to strip it and paint the room, but I really hope she doesn't.

Reading: The House of Mirth by Edith Wharton

Listening to: Deer Tick and The Felice Brothers

So bright and cheerful!

We moved very often, so I suppose all my decorating choices are long gone. I have fond memories on a Flower Fairy wallpaper though!
