Glamping Art

Mix a little Glam + Camping and you have "Glamping"!  

 I had a lot of fun this past week framing up these cute little vintage campers.......Glampers


 I bought this fun fabric a while back at a little quilting shop outside of Orlando......


....And hung onto it until.......Inspiration finally hit!!


I didn't want to waste the fabric by simply making a couple pillows.   So, I made the most of it by cutting out each camper and framing it.


I added a few do-dadas, decorative stitches, and vintage rick rack to make each one unique.





I love all of the vintage trailers that people are glamming up!


I plan on selling these at the next Polka Dot Flea.  Yep, there is going to be another one!  I will share the details on my next post. 

 Here's what I'm thinking....The Central Florida Fairgrounds has 600 camping spots available, many in a gorgeous tree lined area on a lake.  If I do a two day show (Details soon) how great would it be for Glampers to come spend the weekend right on the grounds and take in the Flea?  

And....Maybe... pick up a cute little framed Glamper at the show?

Happy Creating
Carol

How cute and what a fun idea. I just read an article about glamping and some of the movie stars that like to 'camp' like that! Sounds great to me! Hugs, Diane

Gina said...

Adorable! Glamping at the Polka Dot is an excellent idea!

Amy Jo said...

Wow! that is big! I am glad you are planning this way... I love glamping I have a huge pinterest board of it...but at last not one to call my own. Maybe one day. I love the fabric and the way you framed it.

Corn in my Coffee-Pot said...

These little pictures are sooo cute! I so want one. And saved a T-shirt a good while back to go into my camper. I should make one of these for inspiration!
I would love to go GLAMPING! We bought a trailer to re-do about 3 1/2 years ago...and had to quit after The Honey's heart attack! I just want to camp in it!
Currently...it's gutted and no way to do that.
i can dream though!

Hé hé ! Always new and good ideas stunning Carol ! Glamping love this new word now in my vocabulary. We don't have this trend here in France, but I like it very much.

Terrific idea, Carol.
I was thinking of how sweet they'd look in a toddlers room but now I can see one of those campers buying it for the wife and put it close to the "kitchen" are. She'd love that "cowgirls go to heaven..." quote. It would make her smile and cooking can only get better ahahahah
Yay, you're revving for another? Girl, I'm still revpovering from the first ahahahah Go Carol! This is REALLY your "thing".
Love,
Teresa

Love them and another fabulous idea from you. Just found some great vintage enamelware, perfect for glamping but they have already sold.
SOOOOOO happy for the next flea AND if it's two day i am working on being there. Now I have to get a little camper for sure :))

Betsy@My Salvaged Treasures said...

I think you're got a great idea here. These are so darn cute and will be a huge hit with all the glampers. Looking forward to hearing more about the next Polka Dot Flea.

CelestinaMarie@SouthernDayDreams said...

Hi Carol, what a great idea. These are soooo cute. Love the fabric and all the little details you added. Perfect for the flea next year. These will be a big hit for the glampers.
Can't wait to hear more!!

Sherry@Back2Vintage said...

These are so cute, Carol. Maybe you should include an actual glamper at the next Polka Dot Flea. I can only imagine how cute you would decorate it!!!

lynn said...

so adorable,carol! redoing a camper would be should fun!

Donna said...

How fun! Love the whole idea!

Connie said...

Carol, these are wonderful and I know that they are going to be very popular . . . not only in Florida but all over the country. As always you have hit the nail on the head. . . you seem to know what we like :)
Also, I think having a glaming camp-over at your Polka Dot Flea is a great idea. They could even pick a charity and have a time to sell tickets for an open house tour of their trailers.
Wishing you a wonderful week.
Your blogging sister, Connie :)

Very cute, Carol!
I have to be a glamper some day. ♥

Mimi Sue said...

I love this idea! My trailer isn't exactly vintage but I've made it my own. Your glamper pics are so adorable. Mimi

Ros Crawford said...

Oh Carol you are a genius! These are really fabulous ... I've no doubt there are a lot of Glampers out there who will love these!

Julie Shelander said...

Hi Carol, these are so cute and creative! ( You always inspire me!)
These would sell like crazy up here in Michigan!!!
Can't wait to hear more about the upcoming show. I'd love to attend it one day. No. Scratch that. I'd LOVE to be in it someday! :)

Hugs!
Julie :)

Krista said...

That's a great idea (camping at the next flea). Your little campers are very cute. Great job!

April Coker said...

Aw, I want that "Glamping ho!" one! It looks like my little 1978 Scamp camper! Any chance you might sell one a bit early? ; p

Createology said...

Being a camper, I love these!!! My dream is to have a large barn to pull a vintage Airstream into and gut it, new wiring, new plumbing, new flooring, vintage everything else!! Love these! Great ideas just keep coming. So glad you've gonna have a "second!" Good for you!

Debbiedoos said...

This is so adorable! I would buy one even though I don't have a glamper:)

These are adorable!

Becky said...

These are adorable!

FabShabbyRoses said...

This is going to be absolutely awesome! Something I can only dream of attending. But will look forward to seeing pictures next year. Glamping is getting to be such a hot thing with so many restoring these old broken down campers. It's so cool to know that these are being picked off of back yard lots and being made useful again. Can you just see that fairgrounds campground full of vintage campers???? I can! Sweet!!!!
