It started with a little bird....

I have been thinking about re-doing the grandchildren's bedroom. When we moved in and got the day bed, I just used stuff from around the house to decorate each. Bottom line, that meant it was very girly looking since I love girl colors and flowery items. I decided recently it was time to do it in a theme that might be good for boys & girls. I was at a thrift store Saturday and saw this little pull toy for $1.99. It looked vintage, whether it is or not, so I bought it. 

That triggered the idea of decorating the room in brick red and country blue.  So I decided to look around the house to see if I had anything to go with my vintage theme. I found this old set of Russian stacking dolls that I've had over 20 years. A friend of ours was from Russia and she had her parents send them to her as a gift for us. 

I have this clown music box I had received from my family when the kids were little. I think it would look good in the new room. 

I am going to look around for a quilt to put on the day bed. I want something very country looking, but also not gender specific. I saw this one online. It is kind of cute.

I also liked this. 

I want to have a book shelf that I can put some things on they are able to play with. I thought some Rock 'em Sock 'em robots would be cute on the shelf.

And a vintage Barrel of Monkeys.

Maybe I could find some vintage Barbies for the girls. 

I would love to find an old red wagon to keep all the Matchbox cars in.

I can't wait to start hitting the yard sales.
