How beautiful is this? I wanted to buy it for one (or both) or my nieces for Christmas, but it is out of stock. Which may actually be better. Because if I had gotten it now I would not have been able to wait until December and would have ended up putting it in a box to mail to them. But then that box would have sat on the floor of my office until December... so yeah, nevermind. Anyway... it is a growth chart! You hang the jute on any way with the red satin ribbon and mark it with tags and safety pins.
