Just Enjoying the View...

I have been enjoying my little "Scotty with a Potty" (SWAP) this summer ...and now her little sister, the 'Farmgirl on the Loose" (FOTL)has been camping out with her.... which by the way makes it much easier for hubby dearest to work on her.
I wonder what "the girls" talk about when I am not around... I wonder if SWAP has told FOTL all about the wonderful adventures of camping...oh the sights she will see, the places she will go...
Sometimes, when time permits, I steal away for a wee bit, with my kitties and a magazine, and go hide out in my SWAP. I look forward to the day when I can do likewise with FOTL.
I must tell you, I have had some of the best naps in my Scotty. Just don't tell my hubby,,,he thinks I am hard at work doing my domestic!

Just Being Silly....

Is that "Mr Wilson"??? (for those of you who remember the T.V. series... "Tool Time".)... or maybe I should say... "I really need to put up curtains".... lol! Hubby had a silly moment.

Me just being silly... and NO, I don't really look like that...Good Gosh, I hope not! lol!

#3 is coming along.....

#3 or "Farm Girl on the Loose" as she is called, now has NEW flooring! yay!!!! now to find 12x12 solid white & solid red floor (vinyl) tiles to do a red & white checkerboard pattern....

Framing out the bed (twin) and storage for the 'port-a-potty'.... we're getting there.

I LOVE this little 'nook' that Gary made for me.. Perfect place to store/display wine bottles or?

Girl Camp...July 2011

Welcome to Girl Camp,,,,July 2011

The 2nd Annual "Girl Camp" in Elk River Idaho, was once again hosted by our fearless leader, Juli Thorson.

Some of the sweet little trailers on the lower pad....(left to right) Patty, Karen, Bonnie, Deb
and (not in pic) Shelly.

Trailers (left to right) Juli, Mig & Grace.

Mig's lil cabana complete with Tiki Bar.....

Here is a better view of Deb's, Bonnie's & Karen's trailers....and up above in the background is Tony's trailer. (not shown are Shelly's & Maureen's...but they were here.)

Mig waiting for someone to bring her coffee...sorry Mig, it's self serve around here! lol!

Juli & Patty....Glamping princesses...

Inside Patty's cool is this? a side kitchen! (make mental note:next time use flash for back light! duh!) The sink, counter top & stove/oven are a dusty rose color with copper colored back splash tiles....sweet!

Karen & Shelly 'Chillaxing' waiting for dinner....

Check out Bonnie's cool wine glass... it's a canning jar glued to a candle stick/ holder.... I can see making some as Christmas gifts!!!! fill them up with Lemon Drop candies or M&M's... hmmm, thinking, thinking! lol!

Stephanie, Juli & Ed,,,, checking to see if the Turkey is done.... Ed, our Master BBQ King smoked a turkey for us for our dinner..... talk about Pot-Luck!!! lol!

Oh, did I mention it was Ed's (Juli's husband) 50th Birthday? Yep, complete with an 'Airstream' trailer cake... normally hubbies are not allowed at Girl Camp...but since it was Ed's B-day, and he did smoke a turkey for us,,we made an exception.... lol!

Speaking of cakes,,,, Juli is attempting to light the candles on Ed's cake as niece Julianna stands by with the fire extinguisher! lol! Notice Ed trying to keep his hat brim out of range of the flames!

I LUV this table topper...check it out !it is a custom made saddle pad made by Nancy DeWeir~ Geaney. It was featured in a MaryJanes Farm magazine last year and then bequeathed to Shelly who is using it as a table topper(for now), eventually she will use it for her horse's saddle, but for is Trailer table adornment.... The pad was made from a re-purposed blanket and is supper soft....lucky horse. You can find more of Nancy's creative works at her sites: and

I just LUV the ingenuity of my gal~pals.... check out what Shelly did to maximize space...yep, she used a couple of those hanging sweater & shoe organizers to tuck & store her stuff. How clever is that? Thanx Shelly for the idea & yes, I plan to organize my trailer closet better!

Is this a Cool trailer or what? it is a Ken Craft,, the sides are aluminum and the front/top/back is fiberglass....this is the trailer with the side kitchen and is owned by Patty (in door way)... Too funny, DeeAnn's outfit matches Patty's trailer... and Maureen is putting the exercise balls to good using them as a cushy!

I found this little 'Tea Cart' at a junktique shop and in 'grace fashion' I spray painted it to match my trailer & Voila! instant cute cart to display my hand-me down tea set (Thanx Heather)....

Just a quick glimpse inside my trailer....

Well it's time for me to go take my I am off to ride my bike down to Stephanie's to use the shower at her little cabin...and yes I am in my jammies...but what the heck,,, as far as I know there are no laws in Elk about it being illegal to ride your bike to the shower in your jammies!
p.s. next time I will bring my other bike, the one with gears...riding over to Steph's down hill was a was the ride (uphill on an old gearless cruiser) back to my trailer that caused me to break a sweat...darn! now I need another shower! lol!

Well, sure glad you came and visited..hope you enjoyed the photos and that you are inspired to get a sweet lil trailer and go Glamping! Happy trails to you!
