"Mr. Teddy" is coming with me and my daughter, Robin, on a "Tent Glamping" trip in March. We're meeting on her spring break (she's a teacher in Phoenix) near her home because it'll be warm there at that time. Don't have a glamper but we have a tent, an EZ-Up canopy, ALL kinds of things to "girl glam" it up. I'll also be taking my doggie friend (she's a real, living, breathing dog) Bramble along!!!
Just found this set of suitcases at a local thrift for $5.00 for the set. They are in reasonably good condition.
YAY!!!!!
SOOOOOOO looking forward to this!

Well, we are HERE! We are set up! We've had FOUR DIFFERENT MEN in same campground come by our "glamp-site" and compliment us on what we've done! We've heard "you are professionals" and "I'm impressed"
Pictures later . . . when we get some taken.
Right now sitting at our table with a lamp, a candle, glass of wine . . . and in a minute we'll be making 'smores!
Come join us!
CJ . . and Robin

You got it Gracie! Bramble is worried! Usually when I have a packing pile I'm off on some expedition that she can't go on and gets left behind. I keep telling her she gets to go . . she'll believe it when she is IN THE CAR with me!
Check back for pics . . :D)

"Mr. Teddy" can hardly hold still he's so excited!
"Cock-a-doodle Blue" has been crowing nonstop with anticipation!!

My hubby is talking to my dog, Bramble, about her getting to go "glamping".

well JoAnn, that big blue snow blob has been coming down most of the afternoon! So after my grandbabies went home I got an hour of seriously relaxing 'Victoria magazine' reading in,,,and a cup of lavender/chocomint tea & 2 sugar cookies w/m&m's in them,,,baked fresh by my daughter today... SCORE!

Can you believe it... for once I actually didn't have to spray paint something! these suitcases were red when I bought them. :>)

Hey Grace, Love the red vintage suitcases--did they come that way or did you give them the spray paint treatment? Also it better warm up quick up here because I just checked the radar and there's a big blue(snow} blob headed this way: (
ceejay48 Posted - Feb 15 2012 : 9:01:45 PM
Well, I wouldn't be thinking of and packing for glamping if it we were going in MY neck of the woods. It's only because we're going in Arizona, close to Phoenix. And, about a month later than that in April it'll be getting too hot down there. But we're really looking forward to the time and praying for good weather!!!!
The "busy" season at the campground there is January, February and March . . . seems soooooo odd for me, living here in Colorado where it is winter!!!
I saw your pics on your blog, Gracie . . . . CA-UTE!!! I love it!

Sharon . . my lights strand is hanging in my kitchen area over my buffet where I have a lot of farmgirl-y, henhouse-y, vintage things. It makes a wonderful soft light for before the sun comes up or after it goes down. So, there are lots of possibilities!

CJ, those lights are BRILLIANT!!! I absolutely must do this as soon as I possibly can, and then invent a reason to need them afterwards.

. . . and, "Mr. Teddy" was SOOOOOO excited yesterday!

Thursday afternoon I started packing those suitcases with my "glamping" gear: throw rugs, curtains, linens, tablecloths, doilies, etc.

THEN . . he was just ecstatic when I brought this little tray/stand home. Found it at a thrift for $1.00. It's 13 1/4 x 18 inches and just PERFECT for "glamping".

Ohhhhh, "Mr. Teddy" can hardly wait!!!! (Neither can I . . or my daughter!)

Gracie,
Mod Podge . . . one coat on the cup, wrap the fabric around and another coat over . . easy and fast. I know you've got Mod Podge. Hot glue will melt the cup.

I'm thinking about doing a longer strand with every other one with a lampshade as well . . but not decided what I'd do on the other lights.
It'll be a while before I tackle strand #2.

oh UI ment to ask,,, did you use a spray on fabric adhesive to attach the fabric to your shades or did you just glue gun it on?
I find these mini shades at the thrifts usually for 99cents each...I think I would like to make a 8ft strand, putting shades on half of the mini blulbs and maybe attach silk flowers on the other mini bulbs.
Would look cute across my trailer... your tent will look uber cute with your lampshade strand! Cute & Cozy!
