A Couple Patriotic Additions (from the Country Living Fair) to Sawyer's Room

Last year I revealed Sawyer's Star Wars room to you.  Remember this?


It's had a recent addition of a new desk in his nook....
Over the course of the past couple years, Sawyer's love for our country and its history have become apparent.  He might be one of Abe Lincoln's biggest fans.  He loves George Washington, Henry Ford, cowboys... anything that represents America.  Because of that, I had recently decided to merge the Star Wars look of his room with an Americana style.  I had been on the hunt for a flag, and was thrilled when I found this flag for $28 at the Country Living Fair....


I hung it on the wall above his dresser, and it looks like it was meant to be there.  Check it out!



He came home from school the other day and was so happy to see it hanging!

I also hung an adorable red, white, and blue felt star garland my mom bought for him at the fair.  I added it to his pipe curtain rod above his desk.

Love that my boy is one true grit American! I am so proud of my Star Wars and Star Spangled Banner lovin' boy!

What a great flag banner! Love the stars down the center! I read somewhere that Bill O'Reilly(the talk show guy), has written a series of history books for kids. He used to be a history teacher or professor and felt that most American kids did not know much history so he broke it down to an easier to understand format. Maybe you can check those out! They were getting great reviews apparently.

They are eclectic just like us! So cool you were able to merge the looks so effortlessly. It looks great, and that flag is just a treasure. His room is full of personality. I love it!!

I love that flag! What a steal! I'm so glad that you had a great time! Oliver's room is kind of turning into a red, beige and blue color scheme so I'm taking some inspiration from you! ;)

Seriously girl your kids have the best rooms!!! I'm so jealous:) I love that your son is so patriotic too. I literally get chills and tear up everytime I hear the star spangled banner. It's kinda sad actually!

Well, if you ever make it to the Detroit area, get in touch with me, and I will take you to the Henry Ford Museum. I used to work there, it is an amazing place. Henry collected evidence of American innovation, and HFM has 26 million artifacts!

wonderful flag Cassie and it fits Sawyer's room so nice.
Isn't it fun to pull of those little surprises?

Love the vintage flag. It looks great over that blue dresser!

Amy@BuffaloRoam said...

I think this is so fantastic. And I needed to see it today. It's time to get down to business in the house and I have been feeling so gosh-darn uninspired in little man's room!!
