Camping or Glamping?

Oh Lordy....
what have I gotten myself into?
We are going camping this weekend
out at our friends ranch

Long before the term
"Glamping" became popular
when you mentioned camping
to me I immediately envisioned
Karen Blixen (Meryl Streep)
in the movie
Out of Africa....god bless her
she even brought her tea service
with her!

If you aren't familiar with the word
"Glamping" the urban dictionary defines
it as......Satisfying your craving for the
outdoors around your penchant for a
good meal, a nice glass of wine,
and a comfortable bed!


Perfect....sounds great!
Now the question is how to achieve this


I highly doubt the tent we end up will be anywhere
near the size of this one!

Where does one buy this beautiful tent? 
I would use this one again and again...
Maybe I could whip this up in the next 3 days...
Yea Right!
No..No...don't get crazy


Do you think sweet husband would have me
committed if I asked him to bring one of the


And our table....


Plus the chairs?


I bet he could fit it all in the truck!


Better yet....maybe I could get Robert Redford to join me?
He was so handsome in the movie!
I gotta tell you........
I probably stand a better chance of
Robert Redford showing up than
of Sweet Husband letting me
set up camp like any of these pictures!


But you never know....

Wish me luck!

Wether it ends up being glamorous or not....I hope you have lots of FUN while camping!!
That last picture is amazing! How I would love to have that bed nestled in the trees to read in!

The camping pictures are beautiful. Please post pictures of your camping site (tent, beds, etc.)...I am so looking forward to see what you do with this camping trip. It could set the standard for all to follow. I follow your blog closely. It is so entertaining and beautiful.

Such an amazing concept for an age old pastime as camping. It is often the case that something old becomes new again - like clip on earrings, worn as a common jewelry item in the 50's and 60's are now making a comeback.
