I am doing rather well this week. I received another unexpected parcel yesterday.
From an online friend who spotted something in a charity shop, and thought of me.
The parcel contained a selection of these…
As you can see from the picture above, they are called Stick-Ups.
They were made in the 1960s (I’m guessing) by a company called Coloroll, which made vinyl wallpapers back in the day and actually still produces papers today.
The forerunner of today’s vinyl wall murals, these striking, colourful pvc stickers are big, bold – and can be stuck on all sorts of things.
You can “dazzle the dustman” (by sticking them on your bin), “jolly up your jalopy” (by sticking them on your car – I can just imagine my partner’s face if I suggested that!), or “ginger up your jars” (though these particular ones would require very large jars).
But this suggestion is my top favourite…
I am eternally grateful to Riva, who sent the Stick-Ups to me.
I have a dozen of them; enough to do something quite spectacular.
The downstairs loo wall beckons… ♥
