My grandmother had a homemade growth chart for me on the back of the door that led down to her basement. Of course, she’s 4′ 11″ and I topped out at 5′ 3″, so it’s not a terribly big chart, but I always thought it would be nice to have something a little more…official looking than scratchy pen and pencil marks. When I spotted Dear Lillie’s Oversized Ruler Growth Chart, I thought, Yes, that’s more like it!

The chart has a nice handmade feel — it’s hand-stained and hand-stenciled — and as the product description wisely points out, “you can even take it with you when you move!” (I didn’t really think about it, but that’s a good point. If my gram ever moved, I’d want her to take the basement door with her. Not super practical.) I actually like the style of it so much, I’d consider buying one even though I don’t have any kids. And I bet it’d look killer in a classroom. Just saying.

    I love the ruler for decor, but nothing beats pencil marks on the wall for being real in your life and keeping track of moments. – See more at: http://blog.hgtv.com/design/2012/02/20/daily-deli
