Bummer the US lost. But that has not stopped the kids love for soccer. I came across this great boys bedroom designed by Kate Hume. How fantastic is this…
I love those light fixtures. What about this one..
Decorating with soccer in mind can just be a matter of touches. To create nice bedding we could make a eurosham with soccer fabric and denim piping.
This is fabric is of nice quality..
Mix it with a denim quilt and shams…
Use a simple white sheet set or mix it up with a Serena and Lily sheet set to say GO USA…
There is plenty of artwork available that focuses on soccer..
Maybe a distressed hand painted picture will do…
Use a vintage poster…
We can’t forget the girls…
Last week ended with a rainy sidewalk sale. The rain kind of described the week at Cici Crib. I wanted a relaxing Mother’s Day. James wanted to head to the flea market. We haven’t gone in a couple of weeks, so I agreed.
It was a short sweet trip. It was not crowded. There were some dealers coming from the south making a quick stop on their way to Brimfiield. One day I will go to Brimfiield, an enormous antique fair in Massachusetts . It takes days to get through it.
One dealer was selling early 20th century football helmets. Fantastic collection. The helmets seemed so tiny. He told me most of them were college helmets, but some were for children.
Back then, protection had a different meaning. Everything today is so amped up. From the training to the equipment. I have yet to find any early photos of little kids teams. I think,back then, little kids perfected their crafts out in the field. No coaches. No photographers. I love looking at old sports photos. Of course there are only guys in the pictures. No girls softball or basketball or soccer. I purchased these collages of pictures. I believe these photos once hung in the halls of Columbus School in Bridgeport, CT. The guys look so casual, like the picture was snapped after playing a hard won game. As I was taking photos of this collage, Justin pointed out that it was put together during the Depression. Wow that adds a whole other element. Once these collages are framed, they would be great in a play room or or boy’s bedroom.
Well I couldn’t leave the market without another trophy. Makes you smile!
Wooden sports signs are new in the shop this week.
For some kids, soccer is life… for sure. They are made of wood and are 10″x23″.
The font on the signs has that 1970′s quality. Reminds me of my vintage sports stuff.
The children’s trophies dated 1969 and 1970 are just fantastic.
Time to play.
