Flashback Friday


Once again I was unable to find a shot that fulfilled the theme of this week, but I did come across this photo of my bedroom in 1985. (Year 11)
I spent ages looking at the detail in it and was surprised how many memories it brought back. My gorgeous pink floral wallpaper is covered in pictures from Dolly Magazine, photos, nightclub invites, party invites and other gems. I was quite surprised to see school folders open on my desk as I was not known for my dedication to academia! Hence why I obviously abandoned the study to take random photos of my room.
As well as the mandatory boyfriend photo on the left of my desk - Hi Tony if you're out there in cyberspace - I noticed what must have been my first ever patchwork cushion!!! It actually looks identical to the ones I make for CHALK . Freaky!
If you knew me in 1985 you may very well find yourself on my wall.....

Lady, you are seriously modern for 1885..... hee hee!
Seems you're aging gracefully, too!

Great bedroom - I had a Dolly PPoster Explosion in mine, too....!

lol Shula - I had a straw boater. Had almost totally forgotten about Stuart Membrey, even though Dolly was practially DEDICATED to him !

As for those Dolly pics - I recognise a few - that girl cross-ankled on the beach with the curly brown hair.. I wanted to be her, had that pic ...

My bedroom wasn't this cool though. I also had a lot of "Surfing World" mag cut out and pasted up. For the Spunks !

My room looked like this too...but no open books!

My sister & I have a whole series of those "modelling" pics. I remember the shoot like it was yesterday.

Wow! I must do this for my kids as they would love to look back and see what they HAD! My daughter changes her room around frequently.
Who knows what's under that bed?

Can't see myself but I'm sure I'm there! That brought back lots of memories for me too! It was my second bedroom after all! xa
