like charlie brown


In my grandma & grandpa's house, a huge drawing of Charlie Brown hung on their hallway wall. 

Marc by Marc Jacobs Velvet Dress

My uncle made the Charlie Brown drawing,
&
 I always liked looking at it.
 
No, this isn't what the drawing looked like,
but I like this image.


Linus Van Pelt
: You know, Charlie Brown, they say we learn more from losing than from winning. 
Charlie Brown: Then that must make me the smartest
person in the world.



Proenza Schouler Shoes

Lucy Van Pelt
: Wake up Linus. It's time to go to school. 
Linus Van Pelt: Again? 
Lucy Van Pelt: What do you mean 'again'? 
Linus Van Pelt: I went yesterday. 
Lucy Van Pelt: Mom's already made your lunch.  
Linus Van Pelt: Guess I might as well go to school.
 I can't waste a good lunch.
 

The Best Case Scenario Shop

Linus Van Pelt
: You'd either be the hero, or a goat. 
Snoopy: Baaaaaaa!  


Melie Bianco Purse

Charlie Brown
: I'm dying, and all I hear are insults!  

Go Jane Shoes

Linus Van Pelt
: Well, I can understand how you feel. You worked hard, studying for the spelling bee, and I suppose you feel you let everyone down, and you made a fool of yourself and everything. But did you notice something, Charlie Brown? 
Charlie Brown: What's that? 
Linus Van Pelt: The world didn't come to an end. 


Embroidered Wood Earrings

Charlie Brown
: This pitcher's mound is covered with dandelions! 
Frieda: Don't touch them Charlie Brown! Don't you dare hurt all those innocent dandelions! They're beautiful! Don't you dare cut them down! 
Lucy Van Pelt: Besides... you may not know this, but you look kind of cute standing there surrounded by dandelions. 
Charlie Brown
: I don't want to look cute! 

Rippled Zig Zag Scarf

Charlie Brown
: This whole thing makes me feel
 as though I'm being drafted.

Patty
: Does anyone here know first aid? 
Lucy Van Pelt
: It's probably not serious. Second or third aid will do. 

Lu Lu*s Pumps

Lucy Van Pelt: You must learn how to smile, Charlie Brown. Smile! 
[Charlie Brown smiles; Snoopy smiles more broadly; Lucy compares the two
Lucy Van Pelt
: You've got a smile like a sick pumpkin.

Linus Van Pelt
: You look like you've been through shock treatment or something. 
Charlie Brown
: What's more shocking than having your faults projected on a screen?

A Boy Named Charlie Brown 1969

Charlie Brown
:
Well, we lost the first game of the season again. I know it shouldn't bother me, but it does. We always seem to lose the first game of the season and the last game of the season. 

Charlie Brown: And all those stupid games in between!  

A Boy Named Charlie Brown

I watched this movie today. There were some scenes with art that enthralled me. 
 
My husband said, "I thought everybody liked 
Charlie Brown?"

I said, with tears in my eyes, "Well I do."  :)

This is just a 2 minute movie clip.

Charlie Brown: Then that must make me the smartest person in the world.

  2. I really didn't feel much for these designs at first, but I find myself loving them more and more!

    Also, no, the PF eyeliner wasn't waterproof, but I actually do like it for the price.

  9. hehe...I like peanuts too, they are just so cute. Linus always reminds me of my son, he likes to hold a nappy wherever he goes. And he is already 10. I like your fashion picks as well, the zig zag strappy heels are just perfect!

  15. Ted! I loved this post, he is very cute because I love Charlie Brown! I love everything, and I think the greatest example of "mania" Charlie Brown, is the brand Missoni, is not it? the zigzag famous!

  17. We have a theme park called Carowinds in Charlotte, NC, and while it used to use all the movie name from Paramount pictures, when they sold the park they had to rename them other stuff. Some of it's generic, but they did have the rights to the peanuts brand. So a lot of rides are now Charlie brown related. For exampel the Scooby Doo roller coaster is now the Woodstock Express.

    They even have a Charlie Brown gift shop which was pretty neat. They had some adult sized Charlie brown shirts as well. I wanted to get some stuff, but after getting robbed by ticket, parking, and lunch prices, I didn't feel like buying anything.
