Karen’s Camp

Karen's Kristmas Kamp 001


Last weekend was my fourth annual glamping weekend here in Cheney, WA.  The theme this year…..Christmas.


You might want to grab some coffee, this is a long post.

It was unseasonably warm (low 90’s) for Christmas!  It put us in the ‘relaxing in the shade’ mode.

I got all those pretty designer clothes and the turquoise jewelry, belts, and a new cowboy hat!  I just love the new outfits!  Those long sleeve bling t shirts are so cool, too.  I got that cute raincoat for my grandson Grayson and some books for Maxwell.

We all knew there was to be a sudden change in the weather on Sunday night but did not expect the winds to be so bad.  This tree was scheduled to be bound, as it was splitting down the center, in the coming days, but just didn’t want to wait. 






  1. What a fun time you always have, and this Christmas one was definitely one too.

  2. As always some beautiful caravans. You all seem to have a lot of fun.
    Love that you put a Christmas tree in for the chickens. This is what I would of done.

    So what's up for Halloween?

  5. So glad to see that you have returned. I enjoyed every bit of it and thanks for sharing. Love all the goodies that you found. Have a great week.

  6. Looks like your party was a great success (and you sucked up the last little bit of summer too). Good timing!

  7. Replies
    1. Yes, there was, I had never done anything like that, I was totally out of my element but it felt like the shoe fit! Or should I say the boot fit?

  8. Was that at your place? But you don't live across the street from that hotel? Your house is darling and all the haul from the sales! WooHoo! I've been really good this thrifting and no sales....trying to clean and clear out. What fun you all had but sad about your tree. Thanks for sharing all of it...looks like a great time was had by all!

  9. What a fun weekend you gals had!! i would love to crash the party some year, maybe when I'm retire and have the travel time!! Isn't Carolyn the cutest tree, and did Santa come down the chimney? What a haul, you girls know how to shop!!!

  10. poor Dash....hard work keeping track of everyone!

    1. You know what he just loved every minute of it. He was even dancing on the dining room chairs, just to see what we were doing

  11. Your weekends with the girls always make me smile. Too much fun! What a fun idea to decorate for Christmas...and still enjoy the weather.

  12. OMG you guys crack me up. So much fun! I LOVE that sailboat painting.

  13. What a great time you must have had. Love all the glampers. I am in glamper search mode, hopefully next summer I will find one. I just finished stitching up a pillow in the colors I want for the inside decor, will be sharing it in a blog hop on the 30th. I am drawn to the small red Formica top of some sort in your pile of goodies.

  14. And a good time was had by all, I'm sure..Love the sailboat...Thanks for sharing Karen..

  15. So which kind of trailer do I want? A cute one for sure, shiny or painted, I guess it doesn't matter, I love them all.

  16. The only thing wrong with these photos... I wasn't in them this year! But I did spy my pink Christmas tree in the Chicken Mansion! So I guess, in spirit,,,& pink tree,,, I was there!
    Glad you all made awesome finds!
    Hugz & I miss you all... oh and give Dashypoo a kissypoo from my kitties & me!

  17. Tons of fun as always. Love seeing all the trailers.

  18. I want to thank you for all your posts. I really enjoy reading and seeing all the trailers. I am wondering how you attached the market umbrella to your trailer? Would you take a pic and share with us?

    1. It's really simple, I just used a bungee cord wrapped around the handle by the side of my door. Fits there perfectly. Thanks for the kudos!

  19. I really have to get my act together and fancy up my Shasta. I need to find someone to help. I am no DIY-er. But this all looks like too much fun for words! I spied a fantastic vintage tablecloth in that haul too! Fun!!!!
