I love the creativity in this video. I watched it with My Sweetheart and we were both in awe of the talent these guys have. How do artist of this genre hone their skills with so many social and legal barriers?
Did anyone miss week seven’s 4Day Challenge? No? Me either. I might ought to keep that tid-bit to myself, but it is what it is and that’s that. I’ve been suffering a migraine that started the day I should have posted the challenge. Even now, the day after I should have posted the reveal, I am only just beginning to experience the slightest relief. To my readers who suffer this condition, I have the utmost empathy for you. Of my readers who have never experienced the anguish of a genuine migraine headache, I envy you but I hope you’re enviable status in this case never changes. I don’t think any of us who suffer from migraines would wish this condition on any living creature. (To be honest, there is one living creature upon whom I would bestow this agonizing condition, but that’s a different post altogether, so I’ll save it…)
Whenever cluster of these headaches chooses the wee hours of the morning to release its death-grip on my grey-matter, as it has done this morning, I try to occupy my mind with happy thoughts and engage in activities which are neither mentally nor physically demanding and won’t disturb my family’s rest. Today I found those happy thoughts on a laptop screen set to the least bright setting available and on the pages of Pinterest under the search string “vintage campers.”
On of the big, big items on my bucket list is to purchase and restore or (even better) totally remodel and modernize a vintage, bumper-pull camper and I’ve decided to share my dream with you. Hopefully by sharing these happy thoughts they will multiply and help keep the headaches under control.
Just for kicks, I’ll make it a TOP TEN list…
Natosha Ledbetter’s pin board,shasta, is a cute board with lots of cute camper ideas she found outside the realm of campers that she would like to bring into her own, you guessed it, Shasta travel trailer. I especially like this pin:
Mary Foerster is to teardrops what the previous pinner is to Shastas. Mary includes helpful camping tips in her board, little teardrop trailer and camping stuff. I like this little trick:
There’s a gypsy spirit that goes with vintage camper love. That spirit is not lost on Martha Kuhns Miller. Her board, Gypsy Wagon & Vintage Camper Love is proof! Look at this gypsy style:
The pin board curated by Danielle DeCarolis titled Shasta Trailer! leaves me craving watermelon. I wonder why?
Pinner Angela Ben-Kiki ventures out of the camper and into the tent with her board, modern gypsy.
It’s hard to choose just one of Ann Stillson’s pins from her vintage camper board, but I love this paperback cover (Is it genuine?):
Vintage Campers, curated by Don Jefe is an awesome collection. One of my faves:
I couldn’t resist Stephanie Mallicote’s
little campers. Especially the one pulled behind two wheels:
David Sarenco has a fabulous board he calls, simply, camping. I love this little blue pin:
And the top spot in my Top 10 vintage camper pin boards list goes to Airstream And Retro Campers: 190 (so far) awesome pins collected by James Reed. His “man cave” is one of my very favorites vc pins of all:
My brand-new vc pin board can be seen right here.
I hope you will post your Pin-loved favorite vintage camper boards in the comments.
I know it’s late, but in dealing with a serious situation I lost track of the day. I’m hoping one of my buddies will step in and help me out by hosting this week’s challenge… JaneysRoom? MinimalismJourney? Please & thanks! (link in the comments and they will follow…)
I promise I’ll post my purse pic tomorrow.
I know I have posted that I love craigslist for the freebies. I love the site for its deals, too. No, I really don’t. I love it for the idea of its deals, but the fact is that I’ve never been in on a craigslist transaction through which I didn’t walk away feeling as though I had been shafted. That’s just on purchases.
When it comes to selling, I have had a mountain of luck the size of a pin head. I educate myself on the TOS and the prohibited items, carefully select every word of my ad, include attractive and relevant photos, contact info, the whole 9 yards. Once posted, my ads have one of two results: flagged into oblivion within the hour or they sit without response until the end of time. It’s re-effen-tarded and I feel re-effen-tarded for trying to post anything EVERY TIME I publish a new listing on that stupid site.
Here’s my latest (Please tell me what you would say might make this listing unworthy of publication on such an esteemed marketplace as craigslist):
Your Chihuahua Puppy is Waiting for You Here – $250 (Love Field/Design District)
Three 7-week old chihuahua pups (2 males/1female) ready to start their new “job” providing companionship, unconditional love and tons of happiness right away.
This will be the last litter our chihuahuas will have and they are the most attractive of all the puppies we’ve had to offer. Because every person who meets the parents of these fiesty little marvels falls head-over-heels for them, all of our litters have been conceived by special request. All of our litters have been born with their new families already waiting for them. The families intended for this last trio have been unable to honor their commitments to these wonderful, cuddly and fiercely loyal little dogs. Now these little love-pups need you and they can’t wait to shower you with puppy-love!
Ideal companions for empty-nesters or any primarily adult household, your chihuahua will guarantee you will never be lonely as long as your little guy or girl is around to entertain you.
A re-homing fee of $250 for the boys and $300 for the female (she is the absolute cutest chihuahua I’ve ever laid eyes on) covers the cost of vet care for Mommie and the costs incurred as well as other aspects of the puppies’ care until they are received by their new families. The puppies will arrive at their new homes, ready to get to work, with a new job starter kit consisting of a toy, puppy food, potty pads and other goodies.
Please don’t keep my grandpuppies waiting. They are all ready to meet you and get busy filling your life with joy!
Please call (my sweetheart) or Kate at (phone number here) to arrange to pick up your love pup right away!
I could add a ton more photos of these cuties, but these are the three I posted on CL.
Feedback is greatly appreciated… Especially if you are in the market for a love pup!
