Simple lessons

My pal Kelli gave me this cute camper trinket that I read everyday before my coffee. Today it came with a bonus rainbow prism. It brightened my morning. What are your favorite #campergifts? #vintagecamper

Festival Season


Fall is festival season here in NC. One of my favorites is the week of Bluegrass we get every year at the end of September when the International Bluegrass Music Awards (IBMA) come to town. 

Sir Walter gets his Bluegrass on every September


The weekend of Bluegrass Wide Open features music every 500 feet or so and lots of fun street fare. One of my favorite vendors is the Two Roosters ice cream camper. My music pal Melissa and I spent a sunny Saturday ramblin’ down Fayetteville Street visiting this trailer of treats and other local artists (in between bands like Greensky Bluegrass, Jim Lauderdale, Del McCoury Band, and Steep Canyon Rangers. 

House of Swank always has fun stuff


Steep Canyon Rangers never disappoint


But the real purpose of this post is to share how cool Two Roosters is (are?) Check out their site. Now what kind of business can I run from a vintage camper?

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.
