Seuss-like

In honor of Dr. Seuss's Birthday (March 2)......
*One pretty thing has a whole bunch of Seuss-links.
*Lauren celebrated with green eggs and ham and cute hats. (I love her blog- she is a new favorite artist blogger)

2 houses ago...this was the boys' room. I had a lot of fun painting this.


Dave says he feels like he is living in a Dr. Seuss book. What could be bad about that?? Especially since I sometimes think he talks like he is in a Dr. Seuss book :) :) Take for example the nicknames he gave 2 of our kids: Skibber-Loo, also known as Koona Foona, and then there is Wilber Persnilber Bernilber. See- we are a match made in heaven (and I can only feel sorry for our kids...)

Jinkies, I LOVE the top of the mantle! I loved the pictures of the mantle you had put up previously, but somehow I didnt see the polka dots! Don't know why I didnt think of that before.... You have completely taken the taboo out of playing with paint on the mantle for me - thank you so much!!

My heart skips a beat every time I see that mantel! One day I will have a pretty, painted mantel.

When I say I smile every time I see your blog, I am serious. What fun, creative, imagination boosting spaces!

I'm in love with your home and it's pretty colors!

Lauren said...

Awww...Thanks for the kind words! The Dr. Seuss room is INCREDIBLE...hands down...AMAZING! Makes me just want to "go for it" and paint something so cool! Perhaps the children's bathroom...some day!

We've been celebrating Dr. Seuss at our preschool this whole week. Tomorrow is Wear Red/White day and the kiddos will make a fun little snack - graham crackers with cream cheese and strawberry jelly stripes to look like Cat in the Hat's hat:) Love your boys room! One of my friends just painted her nursery with huge Dr. Suess - y frames for her new baby's pics!

Your boys old room looked so cool!!! Know I'm curious what colors were in your other two homes. :) And I love your husbands nicknames for the kids, too cute!

LOVE the Dr. Seuss room! My kids and I have always really enjoyed the Dr. Seuss books. What fun to have a room like that! The nicknames are great too!

DJ said...

Is it true that Dr. Seuss (Theodore Geisel)was writing a children's textbook for reading when he developed his style?

Priscilla said...

I loved your Dr. Seuss room (course that is the only house that we have been to) - it was so cool. Sara, you are such an inspiration to me.

Oh my gosh, I think those nicknames tell so much about your parenting! I love it. How fun it must be in your house. It's probably never as quiet as a mouse. Do you like the blue paint and red polka-dots? Why yes you do, Oh Skibber Loo.

Well what in the world could be more fun than living in Dr. Seuss's world.. especially in his house.. SO MUCH FUN.. when your kids are old every other house they live in will be second best to MOM..

My daughter's class just did a play about Dr. Seuss - Fox in Socks, The Cat in the Hat, Thing 1 and Thing 2....it was SO cute! I love the room you painted Seuss style! On another note, just wondering if sometime in the future you could post about your homeschooling schedule??? Summer is coming and I'm always a little anxious about how we spend our time and I LOVE to learn how homeschooling moms divide up the time between work and play. Just if you feel like it : ) Thanks!

Oh, Sara, I was LOL on that one! I can just HEAR Dave telling you he feels like he lives in Seuss world. Those are some of my favorite books to read to my kids. Thanks for giving me a laugh first thing in the morning. Well, first thing was Joshua 1:9 giving me the courage to face another day with 5 boys, three of whom are toddlers. I needed both.

There is nothing wrong with living in a Dr. Seuss house. I would love it! Either that or have a giant wardrobe that leads to Narnia...both would be great:) I love all your color- makes me smile:)

one time a furniture mover told me that I had a "Dr. Seuess kitchen" because it's green and purple with black and white checked trim. I don't think he meant it as a compliment, but I decided to take it that way!

Love the Seuss-ness of it all! :)
