Merry, Merry and Bright

2017, Where did you go?? Oh, I remember, we bought a new home half a country away.  I gave away or sold well over half of our possessions.  We moved the rest out to a home all torn up and trying to come back together on weekend trips and stolen weeks.  We sold our beloved […]

Banner Trips™

While waiting on big projects to dry in my studio today,  I am painting up some of our Banner Trips™ on little fabric flags that will soon decorate our Casita. What a joy it is to recreate moments of happiness along our journey. I encourage you to create something special for your Egg, too.  Any […]

Making a Floor Cloth

Ok, this idea came to me in the eleventh hour three days before the local newspaper was coming out to take some pictures of our little Egg. I was looking at how the tan factory vinyl choice was a little dead and thinking about how the rugs we owned would photograph and boom…I thought of […]

Summer Egg Fashions

Looking through my posts, I realize I have not shared our Egg’s summer look with you.  We camp year round so I have the large vibrant heavy quilt for Fall and Winter but needed a lighter, smaller quilt for the rest of the season to help with more frequent washing when rain brings in muddy […]

Perfecting the Camp Chair

Thanks to Aldi grocery and $12.99, my zen camping chair now has the perfect shade cover.  It’s a lightweight and very compact 6′ beach umbrella!  I use my favorite twisty bendable flex-ties to affix it to the chair (see my post on sticks and lights for a picture of those flex-ties).  Nirvana! For those that […]

Paper Towel Solutions

Along with the space for a trash can dilemma, fits the problem of a paper towel dispenser.  Since cabinet space is much too precious and finding a place for a hanging bracket was a challenge– Not to mention, a bracket requires remembering to secure the roll for transit.  There just isn’t any fun in realizing, […]

The Trouble With Trash

Traveling in a 17′ two-dog, no wet bath camper, trash storage can be a real issue.  There really is no good place to put a trash can so one needs to be inventive.  In my case, I was given a souvenir Mexican woven purse many years ago and it works as the perfect, pretty receptical […]

Sticks and Lights

We usually use most of the sunlight to hike trails and gather new experiences so that necessitated devising a system to hang lights at the picnic table–particularly in boondocking (no electric or other amenities) situations. I needed to be able to set up poles on both our aluminum 27″ x 27″ folding table and a […]

The Almost Perfect Camp Chair

The perfect camping chair is a subjective thing.  It can be different things in different settings, too.  In the days of car camping, our heavy duty folding chairs were just the ticket for the limited space and ease of use.  Now that we have the Casita, we have a little more room to lug a […]

The Perfect Tablecloth

Since park tables can vary from 6″ to 10′ it’s tough to find a pre-made cloth. I designed this style and made one each in our Spring/Summer and Fall/Winter colors.  Using Sunbrella, you can just wipe off stains easily.  Any stubborn stain will almost always come off with a little soap and water.  I haven’t […]
