“i bought my brother some gift-wrap for christmas. i took it to the gift wrap department and told them to wrap it, but in a different print so he would know when to stop unwrapping.” // s. wright

i remember, very vividly the room i lived in until the age of three.

it had a small dark-wooden framed bed, placed against the wall – right under what seemed to me at the time, a very large landscape window – the sun always woke me up. but most of all, i remember the wallpaper. it had an off-white background and cartoon-like animals on repeat – lions with smiles and untamed manes, purplish grey elephants, moss green turtles, and snakes, with sunny dispositions. i absolutely loved it. and in retrospect, adore it more for its unabashed retro-feel, and for the fact that underneath that thick layer of paper, were at least ten more layers of paper – so that you could see the past, the history of that old house, dogeared by seams coming unglued; like wrapping paper coming off the corners of gifts. it kind of makes me want to wallpaper every wall in the house, just so some other little girl can unwrap a little bit of history.
