Oh and I like a good quote too, Dr Seuss is a favourite of mine.
And vintage children's books, Mary Blair is my idol, her work is amazing!
I read her books to my little girl Milly all the time, and sometimes even when she's not around !

I love the idea of creating something unusual that stands out in your home.
