Take this little antique store find for example.
Loving Denver and being in downtown with no car, I suggested we take a little taxi cab ride over to "Antiques Row" a mere 4 miles away. To my surprise, Chris was totally game... In fact, I think he had a lot more fun than even he thought. Especially when he got to play with little items like this:
|...I had to tell him 3x that we couldn't get it...|
1. The fact that its a mounted horse shoe (I grew up with my grandparents having a ranch in central California and miss riding horses everyday!)
2. The wood grain stripe down the middle, but off center, is fantastic
3. Chris and I have never really seen anything like it before and the matter of it facing down instead of up gives it more of a truly unique feel (not like some good-luck charm).
4. Its a small something to bring back to future-little-man's room as a "oh hey, remember when we got that?"
During our day of decorating, we decided it would look best right above the door frame.
I got this sucker for $6.49 since they were having a 50% off sale on all men's decor. Compare that to the $49.99 one I lusted over for weeks via Ballard Design, I think I will take it for the win.
We still have plans to accessorize some more, but decorating with little trinkets here and there is really what is making this room so special.
More updates to come soon! Chris and I are actually going to look at a fantastic crib we found via Craigslist tonight and fingers-crossed its as perfect as we think it is! I can't wait to get a crib in here and finally start making it feel real!! AHHHH September is getting so close!
