Our little guy turned three around Christmas and we ditched the baby stuff and brought in a grand sense of adventure. I just wanted to share his new room! Purely personal and fun. I love his new space...
Elisha's namesake is his great-great grandfather Elisha. When Eli was as he calls it "a little bitty baby, a long-a time ago," we got a box of postcards from my uncle from Elisha's travels. They show an incredibly large record of a man with a truly fascinating life. Few have writing with mid-century gas prices and tidbits of information, but most just show an amazing picture of traveling around North America and photographic record of the era. That was my inspiration.
Traveling is a fairly integral part of Eli's life right now, so it seemed really fitting. Not only is he obsessed with vehicles, as many boys are (see his partial collection of trucks in their "garage"),
but we have family all over the place. London, Texas, Kansas, Florida, just to name immediate family... This quilt a dear friend made for Christmas (hanging on the wall) has a button to show where all his family lives.
We've got travel, adventure, and family themed objects collecting on his shelf.
I used rubber stamps on his wall. Far more difficult than I had planned, but I have fallen in love with the natural, childlike, and vintage look of this simple decoration (there are little scenes hiding all over his walls).
Can you tell we like wood?
He loves messages, so feel free to leave him a little comment, and I'll tell him you stopped by!
