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.
