The Boys' Cowboy Room
I mentioned in an earlier post that I was going to work in my boys' room. I cleaned and organized a few weeks ago, and I had not posted the pictures yet. I think that is because I got busy preparing for company and doing all sorts of baking and such. So, this is my Cowboy Room-the last room I will deep clean before Christmas. A couple of years ago we redecorated in this theme and it has been fun finding western treasures. The lariat on the wall is a real one used by a rancher in our area. I was excited to get it. I bought the bedspread first, and then tried to match the border. It took me awhile to get what I wanted, but I was very pleased to find this print. I wanted to tell you about the drum. Although it is not a cowboy theme item, I used it because of the family history. Doyle was cleaning out the instrument storage closet at school and found this drum. He remembered that it belonged to his brother years ago. He asked if he wanted it because it was no longer useful. His brother did not and said that it also had been used by his dad. It was going to get thrown away, but I rescued it, torn off the top, and use it for storing the toy instruments. There are all kinds of stories about various things in the room, but most of all I like the 2 cowboys that park their boots here after being on the trail all day long.
