Vintage Children's Wall Growth Chart ......

I'm smitten with a forever piece that has made it's way into our home. This retro children's fabric growth chart, is just perfection. It's the perfect little something for our home and something we hope to have through our kids childhoods and hopefully through to any grandchildren, heck even great grandchildren if I get ambitious and hopeful about it.

The wall this currently hangs on will end up being a continuation of a coloured feature wall (as we get through painting our house) that leads into our kitchen dining area. So it will be gorgeous slate grey which I think will make more of a feature of this sweet pieces hanging in it's spot.

Ben has memories of his families heights being recorded on the inside of the pantry door at home, and he has a thing for checking on our kids heights with excitement and telling them how big they are growing and how special they are. We've seen other families who have taken door frames that have recorded the families heights and made a visual feature of it in a new home. We've been on the lookout for something that would capture our hearts in a similar way that was to our ascetics and decor. We are so pleased to have found joy in finding something so simple; we hope with care it will be with this family always.

I;m so sorry we never made something to keep our height measurements on from when we were growing up. We used to do it on the garage wall. We did K's behing her bedroom door but then didn't even think about transfering it to paper to bring with us after we sold the house :(
Have a great week !

Love it! I wanted to do something like this for Jarvis. But have I left it too late?

This is so lovely! Gorgeous illustrations, and will look great against your slate grey wall.

I had a cardboard one when I was little with a gorgeous retro Giraffe on it, but we moved a lot and I guess it eventually got lost :( . We draw straight onto the wall in our dining room, which is ok for as long as we live here, but looks pretty messy...I'd like to get something we could take with us if we ever move, and transfer all the little lines and dates onto it.

The kids always get a thrill out of being measured up or as they call it size me daddy.
You have yourself a magical week too my love.

It is isn't it. I should have mentioned in the post that that the little children have been hand painted on the fabric. It really is a special piece.
