    I had a somewhat similar blanket on my bed when I was a kid in the 1950s -- and I also then had [and still have] one of those Guardian Angel lithographs. The Guardian Angel image in this snapshot doesn't look good with the wallpaper but, nevertheless, I really like that wallpaper! A childhood friend's house had something similar. Nowadays, the modern decorating style has living rooms seeming barren and cold, like sterile operating rooms, with bare walls, undressed windows, minimal furniture and no keepsakes or momentoes to give the rooms personality.
