gorgeous print!!!!!!!!!!!!!! here's hoping!!!!!!!!!!

Elisabeth said...

i adore it.
who can resist something so sunny?
however, it was the word skiwampus that jumped out of this post ot me. i never heard it before & it is such fun, so i looked it up immediately... :)

rebecca said...

oh that's just gorgeous - i already know where i would put it up!

Nicole said...

Oh gosh, that poster brought some nostalgia. The older woman who cared for me and my sister when we were children and my parents were working would wake us up from our naps singing that song-- "Let the sun shine in, face it with a grin, open up your heart and let the sun shine in!" -- We actually have tapes of my sister and I singing it. Sigh, yes, I want to hang this in my home.

EliseBlaha said...

so lovely. great sentiment.

Tiffany said...

Since every cell in my body is screaming that phrase, I definitely want in on the drawing (or the buying). Plus, the blinds are too cute.

Marie said...

I would love to put that in 10 places in my house.

In fact... it would make an awesome tattoo

mel said...

LOVE this poster .. so bright & cheery!

flotsam said...

Oh cool! What a happy poster, I desperately need something reminiscient of those sunny spring days here in gloomy Michigan ... of course my husband, who's not a fan of posters, wouldn't be too happy. He prefers to only have original local artwork on our walls. But a bright little piece of sunshine is totally worth the fight.

Kelly said...

LOVE this poster. i posted about it earlier in the week, in fact! it would definitely help remedy the dreariness i've been feeling lately. :)

cheers,
Kelly

Very cute poster. I love the wonky blinds. We got rid of our mini blinds because the kids and dog were always messing them up like that.

Fantastic! Would be wonderful up here in the dreary PNW. I think we're in for some sun today and my blinds are wide open.
