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.

Mig just loves to decorate and Christmas is one of her favorites.  This is her newest trailer, a Hobo.

The girl’s hung out in the Chicken Mansion, to see what all the fuss was about.

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

Sherry relaxed in the shade, trying on her new hats.

It didn’t take us long to gear up for our annual garage saling trip.  This is my rig….and we filled up a large pickup truck, as well!

Mig bought the chase lounge and this adorable mermaid ash tray, which is her favorite find this weekend.  Isn’t it adorable?

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.

  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.

    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!
