educational decorating :-)

We're in the process of doing some redecorating... actually, we're in the process of decorating since we've lived here a couple years now and haven't done a thing to the bedroom area of the house.

So, we needed to find a new shower curtain for the kids' bathroom (because we needed to pick a paint color). I loved their old shower curtain. It was an inexpensive clear shower curtain from Target that had a map of the world on it. It was amazing how much geography they absorbed just from being around that map daily. Clara came to me just yesterday and told me that she had been looking at the map while brushing her teeth and our flight to Mexico next month would be much shorter if we still lived in Texas. A while back Alex became interested in the South Sandwich Islands after seeing them on the map. But it is time to retire the map shower curtain as several of the holes have ripped through (more than likely... due to Clara... sigh).

So... I was on a hunt for a shower curtain... any shower curtain that was kid-friendly, yet not too kiddish.... not too boyish, not too girlish and not too dark since it's a windowless room. I wasn't necessarily looking for an educational shower curtain... but that would have been a bonus.

Well.... I found what I was looking for.... plus the educational bonus!!! I actually found two. Which of course, led to a little disagreement between the kids.

Alex loved this one...

And Clara became attached to this one...

So.... given that I was in love with them both and the colors were the same on both of them... we ordered them both. We figure we can switch them out occasionally. We ordered them from Uncommon Goods... and they arrived within a couple of days. They are so cool! We don't have them up yet since the bathroom isn't painted yet.... but we're thinking we might do a shade of orange in there.... but there's always a chance that we might chicken out and go with a blue or green.

Anyway... I just wanted to share my cool find!

Okay, I'm drooling at the computer. I better wipe my mouth before my next batch of students walk through the door.

I love these! We are decorating Parker's bathroom right now and I may just have to get one (or both!) of these :)
