SOTF and Ventura California....

Well the first week of June was the beginning of Glamping season for me... and the first outing was a Sisters on the Fly (SOTF) gathering called the South West Gathering aka California Dreaming...
There were about 250 'sisters' and their trailers... OMG! and we did have 'More fun than anyone'...
Here are a few pictures,,, I will post more at a later date... other wise you will just go blurry eyed... lol!
 my lil scotty... I had a shade umbrella up,,, but the winds blew it down so I left it down,,, the winds also blew my decorative silk flowers all over the place,,, I was picking up fake geraniums several trailers spots away.. lol!
 some of the Central Valley gals,,,, I am the one with the black hat  and pink flip flops on...
 me (left) and Claudia posing for the camera...
 I went junktiquing that morning,,, and was pooped out (and almost broke) by noon! lol!
 this sweet trailer belongs to Robin  from Central Washington...
 I luv this sweet uber vintage trailer... I have actually seen glimps of it on TV...
Don't know who this sweet Scamp belongs to, but it makes me miss my little SCAMP trailer,,, sometimes I wish I hadn't sold it.. it was tiny, but fun.
 This gleaming Silver Stream belongs to Cat, aka 'the vintage housewife'...
it doesn't matter how fancy or simple ones trailer is, new or old,,, we have fun decorating our trailers like as if they were our little playhouses on wheels...  and they are! 
Happy Trails...

Light is on....

Sometimes for me,,, it's,,,  "the Light is on,,, but nobody is home"... brain....
Honestly,,, I have been up to my eyeballs in 'to-do's and yet forgot 'to-do' my Blog...
Well maybe I will make a ginormous pitcher of iced tea and get back to blogging before I head out again, this time back to Spokane for some more Glamping and a  grand-kiddo fix...

Ventura Fairgrounds Camping...

Well just 16 more days before I head out with about 240 other Glamping Sisters...Ventura Fairgrounds.... and the Beach!
So in between crazy weather I am trying to get my trailer ready for the trip.
I got this old typing table and am going to use it as a little outside table for morning coffee while Glamping....
Before...
 after...

then I decided to make a new 'sign' for my trailer...
cheap metal frame, black paint, a Scotty brooch,,, and TaDa!
 I love having an Embroidery machine...
I made my own name tag, again using my embroidery machine...
now I will remember who I am if I get lost! lol!
I still have thing to do and prepare for the trip,,, and only 16 days to do it! Yikes!

New Trailer Bunting...

Well, I had a wee bit-o-time to play in my sewing room and Voila' look what I made...
 Shabby Chic  meets Country Rustic...
 I used burlap for the back side.... and an old ratty stained table cloth for the front side...

    I never toss out bits-n-pieces of trim, as they always come in handy... I even salvaged bits of broken jewelery to add a wee bit of Bling and of course... a yoyo here and there...


 I love having an embroidery machine,,, mine isn't a top of the line machine by any means,,, but it works for me and I manage to have tons of fun  with it.
I think I may have to make some little trailer banners as well... just for fun!

I had this cheesy brass light fixture stashed away for a later day project... and today was the day!
I removed all the wires and faux candles,,, spray painted it black, hung some crystal tear drops and after removing the sticks from the 98cent solar lights, I stuck them into the bulb receptacle... and TaDa! Solar Chandelier... powered by solar, no worries of fire hazards... but now after looking at this photo I think I will add some rhinestones around the top black band of the lights...after all, a gal needs a little Bling  :>)
This will look so cute hanging out front of my trailer and provide a little light in the evening and a good way for me to spot my trailer in the campground...

A New Trailer Apron...

I was working on a denim banner and had this back side left... so being the re-purpose that I am... made an apron using bits of fabric left from other projects...
 I also stitched up this little Bistro type apron from fabric remnants....
 Now for the difficult decision...
which one do I put in my Serro Scotty trailer???
Oh heck, I will put them both in, after all, a Glamping gal can never have enough cute aprons...

Tin Can Camping

While out for lunch with some friends,,, we had lunch at Miller's Landing on Bass Lake...
While there I spotted this cute crafted trailer and tow vehicle... on the shelf above the T-shirts.
both the tin trailer and tin truck are about 2 1/2 ft each in length.
I would luv to have this set, but where on earth would I put it? lol!

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!

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...

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?
