Vintage Trailer Palooza

With the holiday weekend upon us, my mind once again starts drifting off to hitting the open road.

Preferably with a vintage trailer in tow.

You all know I love a good vintage trailer, right? Like, adore them.

Like I want to buy one and live in it for the rest of my life.

And I would. If only they were big enough for my entire family, dogs and all.

And my vintage typewriter collection.

And my backyard.

Not sure they make a trailer big enough for all that!

So instead, I'll just have to make do with looking at photos of them on Pinterest and checking out trailer related doodads online.

Like this super fun vintage camper dollhouse from Wayfair. Yes, a dollhouse!!!

Move over Barbie, I'm coming in!

Colleen at Just Paint It made this adorable vintage camper printable. Wouldn't that make a fun t-shirt iron on?

And how about this CUTE with a capital C-U-T-E camper bunting you can print out from Little Vintage Trailer!

Family Outdoor Adventures has a free template to make your very own Shasta trailer. Out of paper.

You just print it out, cute it out and raid the kids' art supplies to find some crayons to color it in.

Oh, I am so making this!

I want to be 5 years old and be able to fit in this camper play tent from Land Of Nod.

Pretty sure my butt wouldn't fit through the front door right now though.

Or if you're more of a reader than actual camper, you can buy this book by Sisters On The Fly about camping in vintage trailers.

Side note - I saw them at the Country Living Fair last year. End of side note- because I have no idea why I had to tell you that.

Speaking of Vintage Trailer Supply, Inc., they are one of my affiliate sponsors and have an ad on my sidebar over there > > >. They sell a lot of stuff to redo your vintage trailer plus a lot of cute accessories and doodad type things with a trailer theme.

Anything from 1969 Airstream Curtain Sliders to salt and pepper shakers shaped like trailers to a video of Lucille Ball's The Long, Long Trailer (love that movie!) to some cool vintage looking tablecloths and napkins.

In the spirit of full disclosure ('cause I'm a former Girl Scout and all that) - links from Vintage Trailer Supply are affiliate links. Meaning, if you buy a product through them, I will receive a small commission. Not enough to buy a pony, but maybe enough to keep my thrift store habit going. And we all know I need my thrift store fix!

Hope you have a wonderful holiday weekend! We're going to go to a local festival, have a picnic and a whole lot of just relaxing.

Oh, and I'll be ogling vintage trailers.

What are you up to this weekend?

5 Random Thoughts On Randomness Part II

I'm having another scattered brained thoughts kind of day here, so I thought I'd just run with it.

Random Thought #1 - I bought my first mum of the year.

I know they're perennials and if I really took care of them they'd come back next year and I wouldn't have to buy them every single year.

Yard Sale Makeover No. 4 - Milk Glass Succulent Planter

Not sure if you call these candy dishes or planters or cat bowls. So I'm calling it a milk glass thingie.

You can buy one of these milk glass thingies at practically any thrift store in any city on any day. I found mine at a yard sale though and it's part of my Yard Sale Makeover series.

Oh, did I mention these succulents are rubber?

Mid-Century Modern Madness

I bought Betty, a funky mid-century modern chair, at a yard sale a few weeks ago.

For $1.

Yes, someone was getting rid of her for the price of a hashbrown at Mickey D's.
