My children's grandfather graduated from Penn State in the fifties. My husband is a huge fan, so I went looking and found this 1950's vintage football pennant for my sons' room.
His room has always looked like this, since he was a baby. I decided the football pennants might make him feel a little more like the big boy he is! He loves football!
This dresser sits opposite of his bed. Mason and his oldest sister are eighteen months apart. They have always been the best of buddies. I love this Maritime Blessing with their picture in it when they were 2 and 3 years old.
My son is also crazy about trucks. While this is a cute vintage repro, he loves the "Ford F450 4x4 with four wheels in the back and two in the front." I sound like I know what I am talking about, because I have heard him say it so many times!
We used to live in Charleston, SC so his room is a reminder of the beach with its nautical theme. He used to need this little stool just to climb in the bed.
A painting of the fishing boats at Shem Creek hangs above a quilt from my sister and a quilt rack made by my uncle as a wedding gift. The postage stamp quilt is from Kohl's (pillow shams, too!)
Rob and I went to Clemson and love some Clemson football, too! I found this vintage pennant on-line, as well. The orange color has faded to a yellow, but I love the old look of it. Go Tigers!
I offered to take the whale down thinking he might have outgrown it. He wants to leave it and the stuffed animals...I guess at 8 years old, he is somewhere between a little boy and a big boy. His grandma knitted the elephant.
Legos, Legos and more Legos. I know soon enough these will be gone, as he moves on to other things, but for now, I love to see this little pile of Legos! The white star flag hangs above a vintage school desk. The flag is a replica of one that flew on the Titanic.
The Land of Nod has these pennants for a little boy's room. Prices vary for vintage football pennants. Shop around! I paid under $10 for each of mine. After the Penn State pennant arrived, my husband informed me that he had several old pennants of his dads! He has the exact same one that I ordered!
I love to see the world through the eyes of a little boy!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!
