Saving Seuss

I found an old Dr. Seuss book (copyright 1960) in the garage the other day, and even though it was clearly on it's last leg, I just couldn't throw her away.



Because My Oh My.....how I LOVE me some Dr. Seuss.

Then I remembered the four cream photo mattes that I bought at Target about 3 years ago. They were on clearance for 39 cents each and I knew that surely someday I would find a use for them....and only 39 cents each? Come on!

So I decided to take my four favorite pages and matte and frame them for Chicken Little's room.



I think they came out great!!!!!!









I'm so happy that I could rescue some green eggs and ham.

HAPPY INDEED!

Like a pig in SH*T....

I am.

I am.

Wow, a $1.56 to decorate CL's room. I'm impressed. Good thing Mom L is coming to take care of important stuff like a child safety seat for the Jeep. Bet you spend 5 times that on rawhide for the churlin. Makes me have to rethink a baby name. Did I tell you that the dollar tree sells preger tests for a dollar?

Uh, uh, BHB! If my only human grandchild is going to ride in that jeep, it won't be in an ordinary safety seat! She will be completely enclosed in a firm hard plastic shell, padded on the inside, and strapped into an aerodynamically sound ejection seat so she'll fly free when the jeep tips over again!

we are going to pull CL in a wagon behind the jeep

d - OK, now I feel better. Or hitch the dogs to a wagon. Oh, wait, that would mean she'd be flying all over the countryside for 8-10 hours and you wouldn't know where she is!!!

Your idea is better. CL will need a huge windshield to keep the dust out...

You're brilliant! I would never have thought of that. Now you have matted and framed collectors items - probably worth a freakin fortune.

Now you know why I never made it in the business world.

Well done, Di.

holy crap that's brilliant!
