Ahh, the memories.
One thing I remember clearly in several of these homes were old fashioned children’s silhouettes on the walls. There’s something so classic about the lines of a child’s face frozen in time, when the cheeks are still chubby and the hair is baby-fine.
The silhouette trend seemed to have skipped my parents’ generation for the most part, but luckily it’s enjoyed a resurgence in recent years. As with so many parenting trends- classic baby names, and vintage-inspired clothing and nurseries, what’s old is new again.
Here are twelve examples of toddler silhouettes I’m absolutely gaga over. Which is your favorite?
