The Camper Project: Day One

by

  First things first, let’s get this camper clean.  It has been raining non-stop here in Kansas this summer.  While the rain was most welcome, it creates a mustiness in the tent camper world.  I searched around for some oil to put in my battery operated air diffuser, and I cut through the staleness.  I […] Read more…

Why buy it, when you can build it?

by

I love Pottery Barn.  We don’t have one in my neck of the woods, and I can sit in front of the computer for hours talking myself out of purchases from their online store, so I don’t have a whole lot of their pretties.  I love Anthropologie, too.  I’ll be in KC in a few […] Read more…
