In early August each year, our city is invaded by flocks of campers whose aim is to attend the Missouri State Fair.
I did not attend this year.
But I was lucky to see this little gem parked along 16th Street a few days after the fair was over. I probably should say gem(s). That 1930’s truck is definitely an original. But I’m not knowledgable enough to know if the teardrop camper is Really from the 40’s or 50’s. You be the judge.
Please take a few to stop in at Norm 2.0 where folks have been camping out with their door discoveries for quite awhile. Just follow his directions to the blue frog.
Sharing someo of the Missouri History Museum in St. Louis this Thursday Doors.
Can’t say I’ve ever visited a museum with a motel sign out front.
The Missouri History museum is located in Forest Park, the grounds of The World’s Fair of 1904. As we strolled through the Route 66 exhibit, we came upon this. It was pretty fabmazing!
Inserting Doors here:
And here, with a little peek inside. Wish they’d let you open that door but the alarms would have sounded. (I learned that from a curious little boy who wandered a little too far from his family.)
I tried getting a view through those slat-glass panes, but it was very hard to see. But there is a couch that I imagine folds down into a bed. Shelf above the couch for ‘stuff’.
I wish I could have gotten a clear view of the receipt to let you know the cost of this 1964 road trip as well as the location of that Camp’otel.
I was a child of the 60’s and I can tell you I’m glad I wasn’t subjected to this style of camping. Sleeping on top of the car had to have been pretty unrestful if you had young children. I guess what I’m suggesting here is that you probably didn’t take them along until you knew they wouldn’t fall out of bed/tent.
No bottle of hair color needed when you can cover your hair with accessories. Scarves come in a splendid array of styles, materials and colors. For the purpose of Sunday Sampler, I’m sharing my latest vintage-inspired creations.
After a recent request for a scarf with cloth ties versus the crocheted ones, I took some time to fill the order, add an extra one for good measure in the shop, and waited to see if it was a good option. And guess what?! It sold. So without further ado, I’m making some more and giving some options for the Fall craft show season. These are size small. Hoping to gather my volunteer models this coming week for photos. (crossing fingers)
A June highlite for all you partiers out there! This one is for preschoolers so you may move along if it doesn’t appeal to your age group 🙂 We came upon our theme with the purchase of Flat Stanley Goes Camping.
This creation was our impromptu ‘campfire’. There was much safety talk before the festivities began as we took a time for that Teaching Moment.
Games to be played around the campfire…..
Campfire stories of course
Marshmallow toss (we used cotton balls)
A little outdoor play with the parachute is mandatory when weather permits with our rendition of “How Many Do You Want to Be?”(a counting game) As well as our “Weather of the Day”, after all, camping is greatly impacted by the weather, right?!
We have to send a big THanK YoU! to Weston’s mommy for providing our camping-style treat. Ice Cream Sundaes. Topping choices were chocolate, strawberry syrup, whipped topping and sprinkles. Yummo!
