A Trip in the Way Back Machine or How to Decorate a Teenager Girl's room in the 70's

I came across this photo and boy did it bring back memories!   You can still see tape residue on the paneling.  Get a load of that lamp!  My mother just recently took it down to put up a ceiling fan.  I wish I had gotten a hold of it - could have been a good Ebay item :)

Do you recognize anyone on the wall?   Let's see - I see Rick Springfield (sigh), Alice Cooper, Seals and Crofts, Mick Jagger, Barbra Streisand, David Bowie and a huge poster of Gilbert O'Sullivan.  I really didn't know it was that big when I ordered it :)  In the upper right hand corner there is a painting I did of Michael Sarrazin, an actor,  He was a cutie.  I painted and drew lots of my favs in my teens.  I never realized I would eventually become a full time artist, it was just a lot of fun.

I was a night owl.  In the summer I would stay up until 2:00 AM painting and listening to music.  I would love to hear your memories of your teenage room.  Feel free to comment and Thanks for reading!
