Living in the Midwest, most of our travels include forests and trees. Campgrounds provided plenty of shade and we rarely found ourselves needing an awning. Most of our sun hours are spent walking in the woods or touring historic sites. There are occasions when a light rain storm is blowing and it is nice not […]
Since I had stocking stuffers to give my guys, I needed stockings. Happy Camper Stockings! It’s been a long time since I had this much fun with construction paper! Hohoho! ©2017zenandtheartoflittlehousetravelling.com. All rights reserved.
Black and white came to me. This little canvas makes me think a black white and red themed tree might needs be crafted next year. Hohoho ©2017zenandtheartoflittlehousetravelling.com All rights reserved.
In life, and camping, it’s all about the folks you meet along the way. During the last art show I participated in, I was displaying next to the woman who makes these wonderful clay flutes. Over the hours we shared stories of our dogs and lives and travels. We started talking about this blog and […]
However and wherever you spend these closing days of 2016, I wish for you love, joy, warmth and comfort. May all hearts open wide to send out peace everywhere. I will be publishing a big update after the holidays. We’ve been very busy these last two months. Until then, be merry and shine brightly! Ann
There many wonderful sites out there showing the path of the eclipse. This is my favorite: http://xjubier.free.fr/en/site_pages/solar_eclipses/TSE_2017_GoogleMapFull.html Missouri has just opened up their reservation page for the three day minimum reservation of the eclipse dates (8/18-8/21/17). Normally MO won’t allow reservations for future years (one need wait til Jan 1st). So, reservations are filling fast. […]
There are many ways to go about adding solar to your arsenal of energy generating– essential for boondocking(non shore power situations). It seems just the propane detector and fridge (running on propane but still pulling electricity for the electronics) drain the battery in a day or two. Solar makes a gas generator unnecessary for keeping […]
A couple years old now, our little automatic camera is still a favorite thing. In the eighties we had the big pre-digital SLR and a bag of big expensive lenses and have shifted to smaller and smaller and better and better point and shoot cameras every few years. When we bought this Panasonic Luminix (http://www.n1wireless.com/panasonic-lumix-dmc-zs40-digital-camera-black-with-16gb-sd-card.html?fee=4&fep=2928&gclid=CPrVt5XT7M8CFQsbaQodsYMEeQ), […]
There are little towns all across America that boast a claim to fame or historic event that puts them on the map of worthy visits. Some lucky towns have tireless and generous citizens who work to preserve the history through murals, museums, oddities and public sculptures. Benton Il is just such a town. Downtown, the […]
One of the most important things we can do for each other is to inspire creativity. I hope that my work decorating our Casita and crafting fun Casita-esque projects inspires some of you to play around with art and practicality to manifest wonderful new things in your (camping) lives, too. When I look around […]
