Our Basement Game Room

I haven't done a Rednesday post in quite a while, I looked around our game room - there's a lot of red down there.  We love to play games so this is where we go.  I wish we could display all our games , but there's just not the space, they're behind the wall...  We love this room - it contains lots of our very favorite things....  As always, click on the picture for a closer peek.

  1. It's so NEAT down there! Why were you keeping this from us??? LOL
    What a great place for "family time"! And I love the rulers holding up the game boards!
    Erica :)

  2. Jill, this is a great space. I love the way you decorated with all the fun things on the walls and in the cases!I wish my family had a space like that to enjoy, but your looks like so much fun!

  3. Oh, we are a family of game lovers also. I've hung vintage gameboards on the wall in our Bonus Room. That's where the grandies hang out. I love your collection! The Scrabble on the barrel is so fun. I am drooling over that thermos. I collect them and love the plaid ones. The ship is awesome. Thanks for sharing your fun room with Share Your Cup.

  4. Hi Jill,
    Thank you so much for visiting my little blog and your kind words. Wouldn't that be fun if your mom made the same teddy bear?! I'm guessing it was a pattern in Family Circle, McCall's, etc.
    Your game room is darling! I wish I had room - we found my old carom board at my parents and quite a few old games. I used to play caroms with my dad, brought back so many memories. Sadly so many of the board games weren't intact (they were my brothers and mine) and were in poor shape.

    Happy game playing and Happy Rednesday!

  5. Wow..I just cant stop looking at your treasures! Unbelievable. I'm now following you on pinterest. Sorry for being a pain and pinning all the goodies. But it might be the closest I ever come to such beauties!! Thanks for sharing.

  6. ps: It's always nice to come across a Canadian Blogger!!

  7. When you inviting me over? haha
    That Astro Launch game seems SO COOL.

    You're Canadian too Jill? Where you from?

  8. Wow Jill!! What a wonderful assortment of games you have!! Love the way you have it all displayed too!! Wish I had an area like that. If I did, that's probably where I'd display all my Pyrex!! hahahaha!!

  9. Love that Astro game! Looks like a fun place to play!
