Sisters on the Fly and Glamper Update

Some days I don't know what to say or where to start...someone recently ask about my camper restoration, so here's what's happening. I joined Sisters on the Fly! I got my membership packet in the mail a couple of weeks ago and I'm Sister #4922. 


I got this cute mason jar welcome sign from one of my Instagram friends @kristywalters (Country Soul). 
The camper door was u-g-l-y, and had layers peeling up. My solution- staple turquoise burlap over it! I found the metal silver trim at Hobby Lobby. They consider it ribbon and it was 40% off! I was able to staple it over the burlap as well. 
Everything is better with mason jars, right? I found this string of cute lights at Bealls. They were 40% off, plus I had an additional 20% off coupon. I love a good sale! 
I keep adding layers to this curtain. I can't seem to figure out when to stop. I printed out some of my favorite inspirational #rhonnadesign pictures I've shared on Instagram and hung as a banner. 
My girls love to go camping with me! One of the main rules of SOTF is no dogs- these two will be upset if I hit the open road without them. 
The next biggest makeover project is painting the outside of Ms Gussie. Hopefully that will happen this fall. Oh, and seeing this picture reminds me- I finally got a title for the camper! I was told she had a clear title when I bought her. Turns out, it wasn't. Here's a helpful hint- don't sign and date a title in 2009 and never transfer the title to your name. I had to get a bonded title and then learned there were a few other options that could have been pursued.  Long story short, I got the run around from the TXDMV, but I know how it all works now. The bonded title process wasn't as difficult as I was led to believe, and all worked out fine. 

So that's what's been happening with my glamper this summer and now I'm ready to go camping again.

Denim and Pearls, Burlap and Lace Bridal Bouquet



I'm excited to share pictures of one of my newest bouquets in my shop! Last week, I created this Denim and Pearls, Burlap and Lace Bridal Bouquet. 



This was the picture that inspired the bouquet. I shared this picture on Instagram of my current favorite things and outfit of the day: denim jeans and a lace top with my layered pearl, turquoise and Farm Girl cuff bracelets. 


A few days later, I was driving down this stretch of back roads and it hit me! Make a bouquet with your favorite things, surely someone else will like the same things you do! I couldn't wait to get home and rip up an old pair of Wrangler jeans and get started on the bouquet.  The Black-eyed Susans have been so inspiring to me this summer - I could do a whole blog post on them alone!


So this is the bouquet I would want to carry, if I was getting married. Layers of lace and doilies along with miniature and full size blue denim roses, with tan and cream burlap roses, all accented with pearls. 

Rustic, yet feminine, a true country girls wedding bouquet. Perfect for the farm or barn wedding. 

The lyrics to Brooks and Dunn's song Rock my World (Little Country Girl) came to mind I was working on the bouquet.








This bouquet is Ready to Ship now, so head over to my etsy shop and grab her before she's gone! If you need coordinating bouquets for bridesmaids or boutonnieres for the men in your wedding party, please send me a convo and I can create a custom listing for you.

SunTea

I must confess, I've never had sun tea before. Miranda Lambert's song Automatic mentions watching sun tea in the window, so it got me to thinking about my favorite drink. 

I'm on vacation this week, well staycation is more like it. Just hoping to catch up on a few things, spend some time relaxing, go camping, and make sun tea.  So today, I did just that! 

Spending some time relaxing in Miss Gussie, the glamper, watching sun tea. 

My fancy hot dog dinner ;)

Of course it's not all play, I'm working on some etsy orders and have a few new bouquets to unveil soon. This picture I posted on Instagram was I nspiration for one of the bouquets! 


I need to have a photo shoot soon, but for right now, I think a nap might be in order!
