Silhouettes and a Travel Themed Airplane Room is Starting to Take Shape

Is everyone having a happy fall?
I know we are.  The weather has been beautiful.  My rose bushes, clematis and hibiscus have all bloomed again and I got a huge late crop of tomatoes and peppers!

Okay, so I had to show you these cool silhouettes that my sister made!  She put together the nicest Halloween care packages of goodies and delicious treats and sent them to us - these were in the boys' package.  I thought they were so neat so we put them up on the old antique mirror as Halloween decor ~ fun!!

Also, I've been working on the little man's bedroom.
I've been sanding and painting furniture {which I will show later when all complete}
I've been finding some neat stuff at vintage shops and flea markets

Here is a little glimpse of his new room.  He loved this globe so it became a part of the airplane/travel theme.
You'll notice the "Pooh" border still up...he decided that he doesn't want to part with it yet.  That's okay, I wasn't really ready either - haha!  We'll just work with it.

I found this neat old map too.  I thought it would be fun above his bed.  He doesn't have a headboard so this just might work!

The littlest one approves

and lastly {for now anyway}, an old vintage Samsonite and an old wooden box from Brazil.  I'm thinking toy storage?

More later as the room is completed!
Have a wonderful Saturday.

xo and God Bless,

The Halloween treats are fantastic, and I love what you are doing with the little man's room - and what a cutie patootie he is! I immediately recognized the Pooh border - I had that bedding for my wee one, too! Aww, memories.
The maps are wonderful for a boy's room, and the box and suitcase perfect for storage.
Your garden's bounty sounds divine. Happy Autumn,

What a cute theme for a little guy's bedroom!! You've got some great stuff going on in there -- love that old pull down map! Boy, don't see those anymore!
