Karen’s Camp

 I had some fantastic friends, Sisters on the Fly, at my house this weekend.  Each brought one of their favorite trailers and we just had a blast.  Yes, several Sisters have more than one trailer…one gal has five!  It’s a fun addiction!

As you might guess, Mig loves to decorate…she even took the washcloths I made and decorated her mailbox!

A quick stop at the Dollar Store and Mig was decorating again.  Check out the bumper!

We all loved Cori’s new paint job!  And she’s got the decorating down…adorable kid’s ironing board.

And always a favorite is Carolyn’s Menopause trailer.  She even gets truck drivers begging to take pictures!

This is Linda’s newest trailer and she is going to sand off some of this new paint to bring out the dark color she painted underneath…she’s going for a shabby/rusty look.  Can’t wait to see it.

Toni’s trailer has a leopard look…so adorable!

Grace made time to garage sale on the way over and picked up a lavender Christmas tree!  Way to go, Grace!

Dee Ann’s place would be a mermaid’s palace.  Sweet sea shells and an adorable fishnet screen door.

On Saturday, this being our second annual meet, we had to repeat what we did last year.  So we went looking for garage sales in Spokane, WA.  We grouped our ‘stuff’ together for our annual photo shoot….

We got a lot of fun stuff…here is a sample.

Yes, Grace is going to model the bustier, she found at a garage sale.  Before you know it, she is modeling a whole new outfit.

I just love this picture of her!

I think Dash is a little disgruntled that he is not getting any attention, now that we have new finds to play with.

We all had a great time and exchanged stories around the campfire every morning and evening.
