A Tall Measure


I don't know about you, but I grew up in a household where our heights were recorded on the bathroom door jam.  When my parents eventually sold my childhood home, my mother threatened to remove the entire door frame just so she could keep the scribbles and etchings of all our milestones (... you'll be pleased to know that I did finally make it to 5ft 4 inches despite a harrowing few years hovering around the 4ft mark!).

So when I came across this fabulous 'measuring tape' style height measure on Etsy, I thought it was the answer to every parent's dilemma... when you move, just roll it up and cart it along to the next place... easy as pie!  The fact that it looks suitably vintagey and retro is just an added bonus really!

Yes, we had a similar spot in our home. It was painted over eventually, but I loved seeing that I had grown again (I was the smallest of the class for years until everyone stopped growing and I made a final sprint and reached 1.72m (above average)...

OH I want this!!My ex-husband lives in the home where our 3 boys heights are marked every birthday on a door surround. Makes me sad that I can't see it anymore. I would love to be able to transfer them on to something like this...x
