Dreaming of Glamping

We had a busy weekend.  Prissy went to Bingo night at the senior/community center. I shared  her with  friends and caregivers. To protect privacy of the special needs adults, we decided not to post pictures. Just know there were plenty of smiles when I told them about the well traveled teapot.  We watched our grandchildren, as my Son and his wife celebrated their anniversary, the little one is teething and the other a busy two year old so Prissy oversaw all the activity from the safety of the china cabinet.  Today was a time for Vintage Glamping Dreaming. Glamping is a something I first saw at the Vintage Marketplace which is held every three months or so, just a few miles south in Rainbow.  A few of the vendors had these adorable trailers all decorated in vintage finds. Real girlie stuff and just so much fun.  I've been dreaming of a trailer ever since.  Collecting of vintage goods mades it more tangable.  Today I shared my collection with Prissy who had fun trying on another Marmalady tea cozy made with vintage fabric. I have cherished it since meeting new tea friends at the Tea Expo back in 2002 in Las Vegas. ~*~Tea friends are the best, don't you agree? ~*~

It was great fun dreaming with you an Ms. Teapot. Your glamping collection is just charming and a real delight! I loved this post, Karen.

Oh how I would also love a vintage trailer and glamping. That little plum teapot modeled my favorite cozy from Marmalady's. I wish I still had some of that fabric. Love all the vintage linens.

That table cloth really does match the purple colour of the teapot! Amazing!

Glamping is new to me! Looks like you have a great collection! And the picture with the plum teapot on her favorite tablecloth is perfect!

I have seen the glamping trailers, and like you have been dreaming of one ever since! How I wish I hadn't sold our second camping trailer, as it would have been perfect!

"Glamping"? Never heard of that. You learn something new every day!

Colleen said...

I've never heard of glamping either! but I love old trailers, especially dolled up, and love, love vintage ware of all sorts. Your tablecloth collection looks amazing and that one matches our little teapot is perfection!

glamping is a learning experience for me....thanks for sharing.

I LOVE the turquoise colors for kitchen things. That was THE color when I was married and many shower kitchen gifts were in turquoise. It's such a vibrant happy color.

Lovely fabrics. They would be perfect for inside my campervan together with the teapot... and as a Brit I would definitely make good use of it.

Thanks for sharing your inspirations.
