So, I got on Craigslist one boring Saturday morning, which is always a dangerous thing, and I got an idea, which is also a dangerous thing.
I decided we needed a camper. More specifically, a vintage Airstream camper.
And I found one, too! It was sweet! Smallish, with a cheery blue awning. The interior was in pristine condition, circa 1980, with all the mustard and olive and rust colors that were the rage back in the day.
ME: Honey, I think we need a camper.
HUSBAND: No, we don't need a camper.
ME: But honey, look at how cute this one is!
HUSBAND: Uh huh.
ME: Wouldn't this be fun for the summer? Pack up the boys and the dog and just hit the road!
HUSBAND/A.K.A. BUZZKILL: We don't have a vehicle that can tow it.
ME: Don't bother me with details.
I promptly texted my sister, Tina, who has been RVing with her husband for many years. I sent her the photo, and she showed it to her husband, Doug They agreed that it was a sweet camper, and a great deal.
TEXT: Doug says he'll go in halves with you if you buy it.
TEXT: Great! Can we store it at your house?
TEXT: Nope. Doug says he'll only go in halves if you store it at your house!
So I did the next best thing. I bought the newest camper stamps and dies from Lawn Fawn!
I made this card for my husband for Father's Day. I figure he'll appreciate the fact that the stamps and dies only cost about $15, as opposed to, oh, say $7500.
See, honey! My stamps are saving us money!
I colored the camper with a silver metallic pen, to give it that shiny Airstream sparkle! Just a little reminder of the one that got away.
Happy Trails, cafe friends!
