Miss Karen Hosts the Girl Camping Girls

Miss Karen and her Bichon, Dash, hosted a gaggle of Girl Camping Girls last weekend for some easy-R&R backyard camping. Here are Karen and Dash at the door of the Chicken Mansion, home to three very lucky and pampered hens. The Chicken Mansion is full of fun vintage finds, perhaps under-appreciated by the hens but admired by the Girl Camping Girls nonetheless.

The earliest arrivees had Happy Hour well underway by the time the last campers rolled in on Friday.

Everyone admired the new paint job on Miss Cori's Aristocrat. That red, with its red accessories, really pops and grabs the eye.

Never one to pass up a garage sale, Miss Grace displayed the purple holiday tree she found on the way to Karen's place.

Miss Mig hung up her tealight chandelier.

Girl Camping Girl tried out her new camping mat (nice horse!) and the small white vanity she scored at a local antique store.

Miss Carolyn brought her charming M&M trailer--which stands for Menopause and Medicine. (Might as well take those retirement years with a smile!) Check out the matching T-shirt.

On Saturday, 10 GC Girls piled into two pickups and proceeded to loot as many garage sales as they could find. See that mink jacket? Girl Camping Girl wore it to the campfire (glampfire?) that evening.

Here's the view at dusk from GCG's trailer-kitchen window.

The Girl Camping Girls packed up to head home after breakfast on Sunday morning. But not before they admired one more camping-eve sunset, did some star-gazing, and spent another night in their cozy trailers.


  1. All I can say is I know how much fun you gals had for you are the best!!! Yes, the best at having more fun then anyone!!

  2. We do our best to uphold the highest standards when it comes to constant fun.

  3. I'm sooooooooooooo jealous. Diligently saving my $$ to get my own RV/camper/something or other. Anyone ever renovated a Blazer (must be shared with an elderly Border/Bouv)? ... I didn't think so.

  4. I recently bought a vintage camper but don't know anyone close by who shares my interest...I am near Cleveland, Ohio. Any campers out there?
