In My Camper Jammies!

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/264/16922506/files/2014/12/img_3493.jpg The Holderness Family has nothing on me. Santa (aka my awesome sis-in-law) left some super-soft, swanky camper pjs under my tree this year. I hear Dillard’s carries them. Go get you some!

Travellin’ General Store

I’ve seen a lot of repurposed V-dubs lately. This one was selling local goods from Mindful Supply at yesterday’s Wide Open Bluegrass in Raleigh.

Two Spartan Carousels on the market! All I can say is, “Wow!”


Today I learned of TWO Spartan Carousels for sale. I just love these vintage beauties. Interesting, different price points, too.


Cheapest beach cottage ever?

At $15,000, this California charmer with curb appeal in Spades looks like she has some original features. I’ll be surprised if someone doesn’t snatch her up within three days!


Original clock and round ceiling?

Or–for $75,000, you could purchase this Lonestar lovely, located near Austin, and the seller will customize to your tastes (and buff her up to a nice shine). At press time, the Craigslist posting had already been removed, so she might be sold.


I’m pretty sure I’ll own one of these one day…

Meet Grace, a darling cocoa-colored Cardinal

Look at this charming California cutie for sale. She’s a 1967 Cardinal Lovebird, and who wouldn’t love to cozy up to her?

Oh, Miss Grace, the minute I saw your face, I knew that I loved you.

A holiday fixer-upper

This diamond in the rough is just down the road from me. It’s not bad at all, really. Maybe it just needs a little love.

Happy Thanksgiving.

Georgia Peachez

Wouldn’t this sweet wreath look fabulous on a pink vintage camper? I’d be tempted to splurge on one of these beauties, but Ms. Peachez sells out of them as quickly as she can post them. May be time to channel some Lazy Girl Crafts mojo and make my own.

20131124-104702.jpgPam on her awesome blog, retro renovation, posted some DIY instructions on making your own vintage ornament wreath. Maybe if I start now I can make my own in time for next season. Here’s a sneak peak at their success. (I wish Pam were my neighbor.)



This looks like a fun craft day
