Euro Glamping....

Well in a few days I will be celebrating another birthday,,, oh joy!  lol!
But it isn't all that bad,,, especially since I received the most wonderful B-day gift from my childhood best friend, Irmgard.
She knows how much I love Glamping and found this cute little Trailer birdhouse...
She found this and sent it to me,,,,,
 yes, even in Germany, they like to Glamp....
 now when I go Glamping, I will take this with me...
and it will be like Irmgard is Glamping with me....
Wagons HO and Happy Trails!!

For MY Trailer...

I just finished a sweet little table runner for my trailer...
I had this fabric cut and stashed away to be sewn another day... and yesterday was the day...
it's called a "disappearing 9"
even the backside is cute... I had just enough of some scrap fabric to make the binding as well.
I received this cute banner from April over on a farm girl forum,, it is made from cast off denim jeans and bits of scrap fabric.. "Jubilee" just makes me want to get out and Glamp,,, soon as the weather cheers up!

It's a (un) Wrap...

Yep, the sun is shining and the breeze is soft... I am so ready to un-wrap my trailers... and so I did...
Oh how wonderful it feels to go inside my Scotty and see day light peeking through the curtains..

Even my little Barn kitties enjoyed peeking inside...
you'll have to 'em- biggen' the photo to see her, but Mama kitty enjoyed her tour.

Oh and the other day while out junktiquing I found this kool soup pot...
 two piece, makes for easy clean up too....
perfect for hot water, soup or what ever. What I like about it is I can use it to heat water to wash up in the morning instead of using my coffee pot...

Glamping Paper...

Oh My Stars!!!!  I popped into a local 'Scrap Booking' store in Oakhurst... and look what I found!
 is this cute or what!!!
camping/glamping card stock, embossed paper etched in glitter (sorry more photo skills are lacking).

I haven't decided yet whether to make some Cards, or just frame and hang.. to get me through these next few months until Glamping season...

(for anyone interested in this glitter card stock,

Wine Cork Wall

Oh my word, how cute would this be for behind the sink...or even behind the bed, (would be great extra insulation),,, or cut the corks in 1/2 and glue on the table, round side up,, or around the table edge...
You could re-purpose an old Photo frame, and glue corks (cut in 1/2 lengthwise) inside the frame, then hang above your bed, add some little coffee hooks and hang your jewelry, glasses etc.
so many fun ideas with wine corks... and I certainly don't mind inviting my friends over to help me 'empty' out wine bottles... lol!
Luv cork art!

Only 2 Years...

I finally finished this little needle work project, it was only 2 years in the making! lol!
I started this about 2 years ago, then for what ever reason, set it aside... until I found it last night... well,,, no more procrastinating... I put on my 'old lady- reading glasses' and finished it up!
Now I just need to figure out what I should do with it,,, frame it, make a deco pillow, ???
Any suggestions?

Oh well, this does bring a smile to my heart..  and these are just half of my collection of mini trailers, I have more as well as Trailer bird houses,,, but I can't get to them until all the Christmas deco is packed up and put away... so for now,, I will just enjoy these.
Merry Christmas...  and Happy Trails....

Mini Scotty..

I found this pair of cute, mini Scotty chalk board hanging thingies...
I can write itty bitty messages on them and hang them in or out of my trailer...
I found these at 'World Market-Cost Plus"...  Luv that store!

Trailer Decortions...

Well faschnizzles!  I had really hoped to be able to decorate my Scotty as well as Tin Cup & Cubbie for the Holiday season,,, but with the number of storms and strong winds,,, I could not do any decorating this month, Bummer!
In fact, because of the winds and rains, we had to relocate all 3 trailers to avoid broken tree branches from landing on them... Oak trees up here are prone to breakage......
as you can see, the 'littles' are parked up along the Shop to buffer the winds.
I truly wish I could have strung lights and set up a cute Holiday scene.

 and this is my excuse for not decorating last year!
According to the weather report, we are due in another storm of rain...  and possible snow just up the mountain... HoHoHo!

Mini ME....

To borrow a phrase from the 'Austin Powers' movie...
"Mini Me...  You complete me... "...
 it is  aprox 7"  x 7"....
 it is a piggy bank, now to start filling it for a future trailer...
and of course, my SOTF number on the back.

We have a local Bisque painting studio, where you paint the item, they fire/glaze it...
I enjoyed making it to match my Serro Scotty trailer...
Happy Trails....

Trailer Deco

Here is a little project I just finished up this weekend...
 G B, that's me!
I purchased these wooden letters, sprayed a layer of primer and then white paint... then I placed a piece of curtain lace over the letters and then sprayed a layer of black paint, removed the lace, let dry then sprayed a layer of clear sealer... Now to decide what to do for the Bling effect... maybe some old jewelery...
This will look cute in my little Scotty Trailer...

Yum!

Wine is Fine... but a Margarita is better!
Some days, when you can't go Glamping,, just do the next best thing,,, Memory Glamp, you know, peruse through your photos of past glamping trips, remember the fun, the mishaps and the memories...
And now, I think I will go peek out in my trailer and see how she is doing....
Happy Trails!

A Pillow CAse for a Friend...

In the past 8+ years, I have met so many delightful 'sisters' from "Sisters on the Fly", a women only trailer group...
And every now and then I feel the need to make or find a little something for dear ladies whose friendship and paths I have crossed...some local and some far away......

Well, while out in the town of Merced,  I took advantage of the trip and hit the Hobby Lobby store... you know the one, the Craft Store on Steroids! lol!
I found this sweet fabric and immediately Kerry-jo aka Cuppa Jo, came to mind, so I just had to buy and stitch up a sweet little pillow case for her 'Cuppa-Jo" trailer...
Kerry has a "Lil Loafer" Aristocrat vintage trailer all decked out in a coffee theme... it is truly cute!
SO the pillow case is in the mail, on it's way to Kerry-jo... Hope she likes it!
 I machine embroidered her trailer name 'cuppa-jo' on one side...
and the silhouette of a coffee cup on the other....

I am slowly learning to be more comfortable with my embroidery sewing machine...and how to
 down load pattern designs .. now to find some cute trailer & flamingo designs to stitch up!...

Trailer Stamps...

Look what I spotted in our little local ceramic shop....
This is a set of rubber stamps in a cute trailer theme! The gal stamped the ceramic dish, and then painted it... how cute is that!
I think I will search the internet to see who sells these stamps!

Sunset Magazine 2014

I was thumbing through this months issue of Sunset magazine when low and behold, on page 11,  I spotted this!
At first I thought, 'Seriously?' to take a sweet 1954 Boles Aero trailer and turn it into a Bar, a traveling Bar no less',,, but then I thought, "Actually how koolieo would that be at one of our Trailer outings''... so I guess it just all depends on how you look at it! lol!  and Cheers!
