Welcome friends...thanks for coming by. We're seeking beauty in all of creation... in our faith and our families; our art and our music; our crafts and kitchens, and even in our own backyard. We'll share a poem or a recipe, a picture or a memory; maybe a dream of how we wish our life could be. And though we acknowledge that the world can be harsh, we're keeping it pleasant in our little corner; endeavoring to keep the words from the Book of all Books: ...Whatsoever things are lovely; think on these things.

I so enjoy hearing from you...so leave me a comment; it'll make my day!

Gettin' On Down the Road In Style

Koda's not quite ready to stay in hotels. We're not ready to give up vacations. The solution...our new Kodahome. This way we can travel comfortably with our furry friend and pull our little boat. Next year it's Yellowstone or bust!

There was a vintage RV rally in Lynden this weekend. I love, love, love vintage trailers. Even though we're not ready to buy one, we stopped to have a look. What fun!
This one had a definite 'Jetson's theme.' It's circa 1961.
Folks take this seriously. It's not enough to have a vintage trailer. One must have the matching automobile, bicycle, and every other vintage accessory one can imagine. Love the old car.
Adorable. The striped awnings are so cute.
This is a 1954 tent trailer.
I really like these little pastel colored trailers.
Teardrops are cute, but Kelly and I agree, we couldn't sleep in one. Too confining.
The back of them opens up to become a full service kitchen. Very nifty. But you've gotta have good weather for these units...or a nice canopy and some great outdoor clothing.
Pile the kids into the old station wagon and off you go. Play the license plate game, I spy, Beetle safety, and if things get too rowdy threaten to pull the car over if they don't straighten up. Remember?
A slice of vintage Americana. Love it!

These vintage trailers are so much fun! I've always been intrigued by these trailers but I know I'd never use them enough to justify the cost...
By the way. The Mennonite Girls are having a book signing at the Barnes and Noble in Bellingham on Saturday October 1st. If you are free that day it would be fun to meet you there!!

We gave up camping two years ago when we gave our son our camper. We started out with a tent, progressed to a pop-up camper and finally a boxed in self-contained Cub trailer which made it so much easier. I could never be emtombed in a tear drop. Fun seeing those vintage campers.

Fun, fun, fun!!! Aren't they just adorable?! I would love to set up a little campground here on our farm with trailers of every color. And a vintage station wagon is a must, for sure!
