My current obsession with all things vintage camping rages on and it recently jumped off my Pinterest board and into the backseat of my car.
Just days after I pinned that little plaid camping stove I came across a very similar one, buried in the garage of an estate sale.
I stopped short of a giant squeal of delight when I discovered it but later I turned to the stranger next to me in line to let them know this Very Important News: that-I-just-pinned-this-stove-on-Pinterest-and-now-here-it-is-in-my-hands-and-isn’t-that-amazing?
Luck was with me since I said it to someone who knows (or was nice enough to pretend to know) what Pinterest is and is tolerant of people who talk to strangers in line at estate sales about random things they find in the corners of garages.
Camping (and outdoorsiness in general) was the theme with some of my favorite finds on my recent road trip with Laurie/Ethel.
These beauties (Mt. Hood and Crater Lake) were purchased in California & transported back to their home state of Oregon.
This mossy mushroom has already moved on to its new forever garden and may I add a word or two about those blue glass insulators? I don't know much about them other than they're pretty (and were once outdoors) but I always buy them when I can find them for a dollar or less because they're consistent sellers for me.
I couldn't resist the aqua canteen.
And I bought the birdhouse just for the colors.
