"Might come in handy"

I redecorated my study about 4 or 5 years ago. These are some of the off-cuts that were left over. I kept them because I thought they would come in handy if I needed to patch up the wall at any time, which, of course, predictably, I never did. And we've sold the house now. So I'll leave them behind ... just in case the new owners need them. 😁

To be honest, I don't really know why I bother keeping them - I never end up using them and I'm never sure they'd blend in even if I did. But that won't stop me doing the same next time! 😏

My bedroom wall...

Just a gentle nudge GrinGrinGrin
I recognise that I am likely to be disqualified for divergence from the topic as there is no actual wallpaper in this - but in our house we paper the walls with pictures, so I am entering into spirit at least Smile

Like AndrewThompson we have no wallpaper anywhere - stripped some awful stuff off when we moved here - and nor do I have Photoshop or anything similar. However, I couldn't resist showing at least a wall - which unfortunately shows our DVD and bookshelves in some state of dissaray. Must tidy them up.....

and straighten the picturesBlush

Only one part of the house has wallpaper here and that is the hallway. I had a few thoughts and then decided to concentrate on parts of the wallpaper and photograph a small part that has become torn after something has scraped down it.

Right ho! Finished me Egg and Bacon buttie, can now concentrate Smile

In the time honored format I will say a few words, then pronounce a winner.
nb:- Never throw wallpaper away, it is perfect in seed trays to retain the moisture ( something I learned from me old Dad ).

PhotoLinda :- I only wish that things stored by me looked as pristine as this.Smile

Cliknimagine:- Very artistic, Hummingbirds on the wall to keep you cool Smile

AndrewThomson :- as pictures are mainly paper and are hung on the wall, you get by on a technicality Smile

petebfrace :- Once again, paper on a wall, and if you call that untidy, I must really be slipping Wink

EddieAC :- The one disadvantage of wallpaper, you only have to touch it to cause damage Smile

And the winner is EddieAC this week, an individual take on the subject.
So over to you for next weeks brain teaser, Eddie.

Thanks again to all,
