Before I show you today’s project, I thought I’d share an excerpt from one of my favorites.
Yes, BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND (seriously, I got an e-mail) it’s my mom crush, DR. SEUSS. (you MUST read this out loud for the full effect)
Just came in
From the County of Keck
That a very small bug
By the name of Van Vleck
Is yawning so wide
You can look down his neck.
This may not seem
Very important, I know.
But it is. So I’m bothering
Telling you so.
A yawn is quite catching, you see. Like a cough.
It just takes one yawn to start other yawns off.
Creatures are starting to think about rest.
Two Biffer-Baum Birds are now building their nest.
They do it each night. And quite often I wonder
How they do this big job without making a blunder.
But that is their problem.
Not yours. And not mine.
The point is: They’re going to bed.
And that’s fine.”
I really can’t explain why I LOVE this so much. That brilliant rhyming is so orderly, and calming. And HILARIOUS.
So, ANYWAY, I would read bedtime stores like this every night, if I didn’t have THIS by my bed.
See the headless lamp? A little difficult to read by.
I found a plain white shade at the Goodwill, and got out my textured wallpaper and paint. I TOLD you you’d see this stuff again.
