The boys, who have a great view of a log cabin across the street, have a camping themed room. There are several lantern lamps, bear pictures, vintage Boys Scouts of America memorabilia, and woodsy colors in their room. While out at flea markets and tag sales this summer I looked for anything that spoke camping to me.
In the hunt we found two old comics. One was Smokey The Bear which I hung in a frame between the two windows, and the other was a Ben the Bear Adventures which I took some comics out of and made part of a shelf.
Aries room also has some flea market finds. I found a cute little shelf that had a mirror back and painted it white. It now holds her little treasures like a plastic cow, metal mermaid, small blue bird, a Cinderella squirrel, and a picture of Rob, baby Damien, and I at Easter time. Treasures to an almost 4 year old.
She also has metal mermaid bookends that I lugged around with me the entire Brimfield Flea Market. When I found them I almost passed them up because of their weight. I would be kicking myself now if I did because they really make her bookshelf.
I think both rooms really fit my kids. Damien loves the space in his room and the fact that when his friends come over (most of them are in Boy Scouts) that they will really love his room. He also made a great point that at least 4 sleeping bags could fit on his floor. Hint hint mom.
Last night there wasn't any noise from their rooms. All that could be heard was a chorus of little snores.
I did post more pictures of their rooms on my Flickr account if you would like see more :)
