Happy Camper Birthday

Happy Monday! we went from an exceptionally warm weekend to snow overnight. It's still coming down pretty good out there. It does look so pretty and peaceful but it sure was nice having a break from the cold!

Late this past summer, we bought a vintage needs lots of work, but we are hoping to have it ready to go camping this summer. With the nice, warm weather we had over the weekend, my hubby got quite a bit of work done on it. Once he is done with the framework, updating the structure,  electrical, etc...we can begin to work on updating the interior. That's the part I'm looking forward to! Can't wait to decorate and really glamp her up! I've already been hitting thrift and antique stores looking for retro items to use.

After getting our camper, I just HAD to get the adorable Glamper Greetings stamp set. I made this card for my hubby's birthday.

It is fun to add details to this adorable little camper and then watercolor. I chose the same color scheme (Tempting Turquoise & Real Red)  for this card as we plan to do with our camper. I plan to make some little home decor projects with this set to decorate our home on wheels.

Here's a look at our 1964 camper on the day we brought her home.

Do any of you own a vintage camper? While we have done lots of camping in the past, this is our first camper. We looked for a long time before we found one that wasn't too far away, fit in our price range, and didn't need too much work. Two out of three aint bad I guess. She just ended up needing a whole lot more work than we thought. Hopefully we will make lots of wonderful memories as we travel in her in the future. Wish us luck!
