4th of July Bunting and Garland

4th of July Bunting

I’m not a seasonal decorator.  When we first got married, I thought I would be that wife and mom with the beautiful fall display of mums and the banner across the fireplace announcing spring has arrived.  I tried.  I really did.  When I put the spring banner on the mantle, it didn’t come down until June or July.

Camper Tour: 1966 Aloha Rebuild for a Fulltime Family

Aloha Rebuild
Source: Learning the Long Way

This 1966 Aloha has been through some big changes and now it is on a big adventure.  Scroll down and it won’t take long to figure out why this little camper rebuild caught my attention.  This custom built trailer has some unique features that the original model (or any other camper I’ve seen) doesn’t offer.  Making it even more unique, this 15 ft (with an interior of 12 x 7) camper is home to a family of 4 and 1 great dane as they travel the US and explore living off the grid.   Continue reading “Camper Tour: 1966 Aloha Rebuild for a Fulltime Family”

10 Cruiser Bicycles That Will Look Great Next to Your Vintage Camper

I’ve rounded up 10 cruiser bicycles that will look great next to your vintage camper.  As I mention in this post, I have really enjoyed having a bicycle to take to the campground.  My boys have enjoyed having Mom ride along with them as well.  I went with the cruiser because of the vintage look.  It is a piece of functional decor for Cecilia and glamping.  As much as I love my bike, that doesn’t stop me from oggling other bikes.  Here are a few I adore.

9 DIY Chandeliers for Glamping

DIY ChandelierI’ve gathered 9 DIY chandeliers to take on your next glamping trip.  A month or so ago, I developed a serious addiction.  I no longer see vintage campers on my Pinterest feed; I only see the chandeliers hanging in them.  Even better is occasional chandelier that is pictured outside the camper.  These are typically hanging from a tree in the background or under the awning.  These are the glamping chandeliers that have really stolen my heart.  I admitted on my DIY Doily Dream Catcher post that I’m not much of a DIY girl, but I’m making one of these.
