Most intimidating plate ever. Oh yeah! They do make great planters. Clean of the Stone Age Shower Curtain Source: etsy.com via Susan on Pinterest Nice. I'm liking this new "what can I stick to a lamp base" trend. I see there's another one in the background, too. I like how these lamp bases go abstract from a distance.

Reply I was super disappointed that they didn't bust out Walk the Dinosaur. Reply I think it was playing in the background briefly. Reply I'm pretty sure my two year daughter is going to be dissappointed when her school doesn't have a dinosaur prom fifteen years from now. She jumped up and was dancing with the dinos during that episode! Thus far her favorite things in the world are dinosaurs, pirates, dragons, hockey, and the Muppets. I am beyond pleased with her taste. Reply FUCK YEAH DINOSAURS. I always forget that plastic toys can be spray painted and incorporated into grown-up decor.

Reply May I humbly submit our wedding cake toppers? http://ruffledmedia.ruffled.netdna-cdn.com/vintage-wedding-blog/alex-travis/dsc_2985.jpg?b03aa7 My husband's a dino nut- he's got a stegosaurus and an ankylosaurus tattooed on his abs.

Reply My husband wants a couple of the schleich dinosaurs for our mantle. I am so down with that! Now to rustle up $80 odd bucks (aus) for each… Yeh, I think that this will be a birthday present. Reply Fans of pre-historic fauna should check out this song "Dinosaurs" by a band I know called Biscuithead and the Biscuit Badgers. The lyrics include the line "Someone still loves you dinosaurs, and it's us" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sb-LdcpEmzI (Recorded as a steampunk fair in a converted church so please excuse the echo and poor lighting) Reply Boyfriend is overseas on business trip. Seriously considering stealthily dinosaurifying the lamp in his study.. Reply We had dinosaur pie toppers for our wedding pie. Yeah, we're awesome 😉 Reply Ahhhhhhhhhhhh! These are all AMAZING ideas. Amazing. This also gives me some great ideas for all the tiny plastic zoo animals that I bought for our wedding. I just wish I didn't anthropomorphize inanimate objects so much. It would be awfully hard for me to cut one in half. Silly, I know. Reply So jealous that I didn't think of these ideas first! …steal 🙂 Reply Whoo! 🙂 Our table decorations for our wedding are going to be inspired by these fabulously chic gold spray painted dinosaurs: http://thatkindofwoman.tumblr.com/post/19183094849/paris2london-via-around-the-house-the (Though we'll also have other gold spray painted animals) We'll be keeping our favorites for souvenirs/house decorations.

And its staying in our room when she moves out! http://offbeathome.com/2012/01/constellation-starry-light-tutorial Reply I know it's not home decor, but it is a grown-up dinosaur item that I recently bought and am kind of excited to start using: https://www.bradfordexchangechecks.com/products/1800673001-.html?BECT_CODE=15346XTV&cm_ven=GPS&cm_cat=Google%7CProductAds&cm_pla=Search%7CProduct%20Ads&cm_ite=1800673001&utm_source=GPS&utm_medium=Google%7CProductAds&utm_campaign=Search%7CProduct%20Ads&utm_term=1800673001 Yup, I can pay bills with a t-rex check…i'm tempted to become one of those old people who slows down the checkout line by writing a check instead of using a debit card. Reply Hmmm. Dinosaurs. You could glue little ones by their feet meandering up the wall and onto the ceiling (The ceiling ones would probably need tacks through their feet, but think of it as shoeing them.) Then you could gradually build an upside down World That Time Forgot on the ceiling, adding dinosaurs, plastic palm trees, sponge rocks, etc., by degrees as you obtain them, especially over the couch where you can lie there and gaze up at them after a long day, to put everything in perspective. Reply Such beautiful timing! I am about to move in with my dino-obsessed partner – we were gutted that the house we've been offered, awesome as it is, has glass shower doors and thus no scope for a dinosaur shower curtain.
