R.A.O.K. in other words...Random Acts Of Kindness.....
Look what I received in yesterdays mail.... is this not the cutest?
Pink & black plaid fabric with cute lil Scotty dogs on it..I can hardly wait to create & sew something from it....my first thought was an apron, but I have plenty of aprons (over a 100) so I am leaning toward a cute decorator pillow or? thinking thinking.....
I don't know if the pot holder is vintage but it is made of a terry cloth fabric and the opposite side is white with a red Scotty dog.
Then there is the Scotty dog cookie cutter...my hubby is hoping to score some cute Scotty dog shaped cookies.... hmm, maybe I will need to make an apron after all to wear while baking cookies! lol!
A heartfelt Thank you to Heather in Colorado....another 'sister-in-crime & vintage trailer owner"
who sent me all these wonderful goodies.
Now to go make myself a nice cup of tea and enjoy my little goodies from Heather.
Can you see me grining from ear to ear?

Wagons Ho to Idaho!

This is the Appaloosa Museum in Moscow, Idaho
2720 W. Pullman Road, Moscow, ID. 83843
You can't miss it, when you see the "Welcome to Moscow" sign, it's just across the road.
Yep, I am camping, I mean, Glamping at the 'Pony Club', part of the ranch, owned by legendary George Hatley.
This camping trip was for the Appaloosa Horse Museum fund raiser. 13 years and going strong!

Here is Juli Thorson's (Sister #444) cowgirl trailer and my little Scotty.
We had perfect Idaho weather not to mention a fantastic Dutch Oven cook-off.
Just 'chillin' by my trailer after packing it up and getting ready to head back to Spokane, Washington.
Ah, Good Food & Good friends, (L to R) Marie, Ed & Juli

Hanging out at the Pavilion...
Juli, George Hatley & friend....talking about horses no doubt!
George, at 89 years young may not be able to ride anymore, but his heart and love for horses and trail rides is still strong.
He has authored several books on Trail Riding and Back Packing on horse back.
Of his 2000 acre ranch he has set aside acreage for the use of Equestrian Clubs to use for events, shows and trail rides.
You can learn more about him via the Appaloosa Museum....
Fiddlers fiddling for us!
Juli greeting some of the riders.
There where riders of all ages, from this young lady to some ladies in their "Golden Years".....
Cowboys and Cowgirls alike are the most friendliest people!
This young cowboy helped me navigate my trailer over to the camp area.
A future Marlboro Man in the making and cute as a bug...He is gonna steal some cowgirls heart someday!
What a wonderful weekend, from the Fiddlers fiddling for us, the singers serenading us with old and new country & western songs, a fantastic assortment of Dutch Oven meals...
Dutch Ovens are to cowboys & girls what crock pots are to potluck dinners! lol!
Here is a little bit of Appaloosa info for you....the appaloosa horse was developed by the
Nez Perce & Palouse Indians, thus the "appaloosa" name. These wonderful horses were adapt
to the prairies of the Palouse...
Hope to see you at next years "Apalousey Trail Ride", I know I will be there!
For more info on the Appaloosa Museum go to : http://www.appaloosamuseum.org/
,,,and yes, Cowgirls & Cowboys do still exist in our modern high tech world.....
You can't be pretentious when you are mucking out stalls & using an outhouse!....
I am looking forward to next years event but until then, as Dale & Roy would always sing,
Happy Trails to you, until we met again....

Girl Camp....in Idaho.....
4 of the 6 vintage trailers to grace the hill side....an Airstream, Shasta, Oberlin & Scotty.

Juli's 4-legged baby guarding our watermelon....hey, ya never know when a 'water melon thief' could be in the neighborhood!
G'petto checking out my trailer....All Clear!
The Shasta & Oberlin belong to Juli (in picture) and the Serro Scotty is mine.
My Scotty, Mig's Shasta and Tony's Layton.
After I took this picture, I noticed that all the trailers, doors open left to right,,,but mine opens right to left....

Evening setting upon us and our little trailers like to "lite-up".
Even tho this was a "Girls Camp weekend", we allowed Juli's husband to come visit us,,,after all, he was our "Designated BBQ Chef"!
It was nice to have our very own Private Chef...Thanx Ed for being such a good sport!
The little community of Elk, ID....Don't blink,,,or you'll miss it!
Speaking of blinking,,,no we are not being grouchy...we were squinting something terrible while waiting to have this photo taken...
(lft-2-rt) Grace, Juli, Patty, Tony & Shelly....Mig was off across the street scoring a Huckleberry Ice Cream cone!
One of the two main streets in Elk,,, again, don't blink or you'll miss it! lol!
All in all we had a wonderful but all to short 3 days of Glamping, eating & laughing!
It was a fun get away and even more so as we got to help Juli celebrate her "29" wink wink, birthday.
Happy Birthday Juli.....and many many more!
Happy Trails to you until we met again....
Good bye "Girl Camp" se ya next year.
