When I was younger - when the girls were small - we used to camp every summer.. and I loved it! We started in a tent and graduated to an old style tent trailer (and I thought I was in heaven!) Now we will be in an RV with air conditioning, heat, kitchen with stove and oven and a real fridge! This is NOT camping -- this is cottage life!!
When Sir Steve took me to the campsite for the first time -- he gave me a tour. I paid close attention to how other campers decorated their sites - claimed them as their own. I noticed a lot of the sites had signs with their site number on and various cute sayings. Ideas started to formulate in my head. I asked if we could have a sign .... Sir Steve said yes .... and then I said with a wicked grin -- can it say "Fairy Tales Happen Here"??? and he burst out laughing. Yes I could make a sign that declares our love -- in our private code.
My brain didn't stop there -- ideas kept bubbling up. When I was there on Tuesday I stood looking at 3 evergreen trees in a group at the edge of our site. I envisioned a "fairy garden" ...... AND I had the very beginnings of a fairy garden sitting in my cupboard -- a gift from my eldest daughter. When I got home - I pulled it out and it all came together in my head. I am getting so very excited!!
When I am done -- I am hoping there will be no doubt in anyone's mind that the new girl has arrived! (cheeky grin)
I have been stewing over how to make a camp sign. So yesterday I went to our local craft store and picked up some supplies......... I am hoping my crafty side will make something special out of this mess of wood and paint and sealer -- something that will meet with Sir Steve's approval -- and add a touch of love to our campsite!
