Pop Up Camper Remodel

We bought this little pop up camper about 5 weeks ago and did a little refresh on it. It was in good condition, but needed new floors, carpet on steps, paint touched up and a really good cleaning! Everything is in working order after some minor setbacks. My hubby and son changed some fuses, worked on the lift system and are fixing a few other minor things today. We took it out last weekend and besides finding a small mysterious hole in the canvas that went all the way though the screen πŸ€”things went smoothly! I’ll be repairing that as best as I can today. I decorated this camper in a nature theme using several things I already had. My hubby and son didn’t want flowers or anything floral so that was a challenge for me! I ordered the quilt bedding from Amazon for only $30 each with shams. The bird pillow covers are also from Amazon. I had the cushions recovered with indoor/ outdoor fabric from Joanne’s. I bought the curtains from and actually used hot glue to hem them. 😳 We will see if they hold up! I didn’t want to wait to have them made and I can’t sew! Ha ha! We are taking it Camping to Lake Ouchita in a few weeks and are looking forward to a fun weekend with many more to come!

Gingerbread Creations

I have sold several gingerbread items this season. I have decorated my kitchen in the gingerbread theme for years and still love it!  There is just something about it that I love! It’s cute, whimsical, fun and makes me think of baking even though I rarely do! Ha! I hope you are having a wonderful Christmas season!!

Christmas Mantel 2019

Home for the Holidays! 

I found this cute sign at Kirkland’s and thought it would be perfect on my mantel this year! I added a garland that I’ve used for several years, but changed it up a little. The snowmen, little houses and trees complete the mantel! It’s fun and a little whimsical! I will share more pics as I get things decorated around here. 

Happy Thanksgiving!
