I am stuck on ideas. I probably have about 4-5 unfinished projects. But today . . . I've got nothing. I started walking around the house. My fall mantle? No . . I don't think that hole in the wall over my fireplace really counts as a mantle. Halloween decor? No . . . nothing original there. Pictures of my unfinished stuff? No. . . I don't want to. A backyard update? No . . . it's too cold to go out and take pictures right now. Finally my growth chart caught my eye.
This is one of my favorite things. My husband made it for me for my birthday several years ago and I love it. It also catches any one's eye that I feel comfortable enough to let them go upstairs.
Tom used a Dremmel and because he is an engineer and a perfectionist at that - I have no doubt that the inches are perfectly placed. I love that it fits our style perfectly - very kid friendly, but subtle.
We've marked where we have lived at the bottom. It's one of the birthday traditions to get marked every year, oh and then not only compare yourself to last year, but also to you little brother and sister and state how you will always be the tallest. Well, maybe that's just I.'s tradition. With every one's birthday, not just her own.
It hangs with 2 eye hooks (is that what they're called) screwed in and picture wire strung back and forth. It's getting filled up quicker than I hoped. Those kiddos don't stay little for too long.
