This is Cam.
Actually, he would correct you and say, "It's Camden-Alexander -John."
I'm going to show you a small section of it today.
This is what you would find on top of the large shelf unit in his room:
I tweaked the vignette a little today after doing some dusting.
These wooden words have hung in various places in his room since before he was born. I found them in a discount home store back while I was pregnant with him. They went perfectly with the yellow and green colour theme I was putting in the gender-neutral nursery. The stars have been everywhere in our home, but are now a permanent fixture in Cam's big-boy room.
This blue-ticking bear is from Pottery Barn Kids. You'd think I pain$30+ for him. Nope. Cam fell in love with him while visiting a local Goodwill Store. He was $1.99 so he came home with us!!
And what is he leaning on? Well, after horizontal-striping the bedroom walls, I needed some way to camouflage the ugly air-return vent near the ceiling. I had purchased the tall orange bucket on a whim months earlier, but even it's height couldn't hide the vent.
Then one night lying in bed, it came to me - I needed to make a half-dozen paper pinwheels that could stick out of the bucket at a height and block the vent.
I used several coordinating scrapbook papers and several buttons from my crafting stash. I hot-glued each pinwheel to a thin bamboo dowel and then shoved them at different lengths into some floral foam inside the bucket.
So what do you think? Cam has finally stopped asking to play with them - he'd love to give them a blow and see how well they spin. Unfortunately, they don't spin at all. Too much hot glue. But they look good, right??
Thanks for stopping by! I'd love to hear from you! Take time to leave a comment and become and FOLLOWER, too!
