Seems like everyone has gotten into the Union Jack love as of late...I decided to show my enthusiasm with a pillow - a non-traditional Union Jack!

Boy's Vintage Camping - Northwoods Room

So, JD decided that the Vikings inspired room was getting a little old and opted for something a little more woodsy and outdoorsy. So, here is my attempts at fulfilling his wishes...a few of the finer details!!

My dad has collected these patches for years - I put them to use in a shadow box.

Nothing says outdoors like an antler light switch!

I LOVE this lamp!!! I found a vintage minnow bucket on Etsy and bought a small candlestick lamp from Goodwill and a lamp shade from Walmart - threw it all together and created this awesome lamp.

I hung a few vintage bait and tackle tins on the wall next to the shadow box.

Of course we couldn't totally get rid of the Vikings - Adrian Peterson still makes his presence known - just not in such and obvious way! He now "hangs out" in the closet - a little nook - just for Jonathan.

All in all, I love how his room turned out - but most of all - HE LOVES IT!! After our summer trip to South Dakota I was able to add a few more authentic details - I got a real set of antlers, a boys scout thermos and a cool oil painting from an antique store in Souix Falls.
