This is about all I remember. I read it in the late 70s-early 80s when I was a young girl, but I think the book was for older (meaning pre-teen) kids. I think the book was written earlier than 70s or 80s -- 30s, 40s or 50s maybe. I remember the girl being an orphan or abandoned. The girl would go to the house and have elaborate daydreams, and the main room she played in had decaying lavender or purple wallpaper. I've Googled and Amazoned and I can't find it. PS: I don't think it's "A Little Princess", but I think it's a similar story.
