In search for inspiration I had a quick look through some recent photos (does anyone else do this when looking for blog inspiration? ) - and I found some photos of a few decorating materials The Farmer and Farmboy bought on our recent trip to America. I took them not long after we got home and meant to pop them in a blogpost but never got there.
I have blogged about The Farmer's decorating before. So if you need to get some idea of his vision just click here.
First up - Farmboy's choice.
|King Kong On The Empire State Building|
Uh huh. I paid money to frame it. Farmboy adores this poster but there is no way it is staying in our dining room. It is currently awaiting its final position in the toy room. Where he can admire it in all its glory and I won't have to see it too much. Although the fact that he loves it and that he chose it does make it kind of cute to me. Especially as we had to buy two posters as he wanted to get one for his friend HG Boy. When I took it to the lovely lady who does our framing she laughed and admitted that she had actually framed one before! So it is not the only one in town.
Now the next decorating "piece"is courtesy of The Farmer. While he says it is decor I think perhaps it is because he can't be bothered finding anywhere else to put it. He has decorated the corner of our bedroom with......his new snowboard!
(Actually to give him credit the snowboard did find a new home - yesterday. Which is only a month after we got home.) At one point he made a vignette with his boots as well.
I have been having a few decorating dilemmas of my own. Trying to find some pictures and things to go in the quarters when they are finished. We have a lot of guests from overseas and so I want stuff with a vaguely Australian theme (and from WA if at all possible) but don't want the real Australiana tea towel, Pub With No Beer type theme. Hard. Plus it is being done on a budget. So far I have found an old map of the southern half of WA and some pages from an old WA wildflower book which I will frame. Any ideas will be much appreciated.
Hope you have a good Sunday.
PS - Have just realised that I may have been unjust to The Farmer. When he is being serious he actually has very good taste. The problem is most of the time he is not being serious. Especially when he threatens to do things like hang the snowboard on the wall above our bed.
