Warning! Photo heavy!
It's been AGES since I participated in a Metamorphosis Monday. AGES! Mostly because I had nothing morphed. Sad me. Today though, I have something to show you! Way back in March 2009, I showed you Indy's room as a Morph.
His room went from this:
After our big world cruise, he had collected even more stuff, so I had to add it to the wall. This is what hangs on the wall by his bed today:
And he got a million more postcards. He LOVES postcards and so do we because they are inexpensive and easy to pack. After our cruise I had to add another row of twine to accommodate his expanding collection. This is a great way to display photos or postcards for practically nothing. I put nails in the wall (4 small nails per row, spaced evenly), tied some twine to them, grabbed a bunch of mini clothes pins and started adding things. It holds postcards, photos, entry tickets, drink coasters, and other bits and bobs. He loves to lay in bed and look at it. The compass above is a wall sticker I had made of some clipart for about $10. There is another (pictured above) on the entry wall that has N,S,E,W.
I love the big map. I got it from Allposters.com for about $15. James Bond found the Phonetician wall hanging for FREE and we had the smaller maps from our trips to Paris (they are street maps). The EXPLORE letters I printed off in the "Indiana Jones" font (SF Fedora) and cut out of travel scrapbook paper. Easy peasy.
The 3 posters on the right side closet door were actually advertisements left in our cabin on our cruise. The back side advertises the Disney Vacation Club and most people threw them in the trash, but we thought they'd be perfect in a Indy's room, so we carefully packed them in the bottom of our suitcase to bring home.
What adventure/explorer room would be complete without a shelf full of antiquities and curiosities? These are some of Indy's most treasured possessions. The Mickey and Mini banks are almost antique. I got them in Disney World when I was about 3 and for whatever reason kept them. Indy adores them and they are filled with his favorite thing: money!
And of course we couldn't leave out the most important items for any Indiana Jones wanna be:
I don't have a photo of it (and it really needs vacuuming or I'd go take one now), but we found and awesome zebra print rug to put by his bed. He says his room is "super cool" and spends a good part of every day having adventures.
I hope you enjoyed the meta and will hop over to Susan's to see all the other wonderful links.
