This makes me want to buy up second hand pop-up books and give them to my son to take apart. He is one of those kids that loves origami. Just recently he made an outdoor sun oven out of a paper box and tin foil.
Today I returned home from a family reunion that was held up in northern New Hampshire. I had a really good time but I can’t say I loved the place we stayed. . It was very …. ski lodge-y — overbuilt and over decorated. It got me to daydreaming about creating a place to hold family reunions that would be aesthetically pleasing to my eye. I started daydreaming out loud with my husband about running a yurt camp. He came up with an even better idea. He suggested we make a little village of vintage campers. I realize this has been done before. The images above are from El Cosmico in Marfa, Texas. I absolutely love the look of this place and hope that I will be able to visit it one day. I would love to recreate something this cool on Old Post Road in Kittery, Maine. We could buy up vintage campers that don’t run anymore. We could add porches, outdoor showers, a clothes line and vintage or up-cycled outdoor furniture. It would need a common area with a grill for family gatherings. It would be simple and clean and lovely. Imagine the D.I.Y weddings you could hold at a place like this.
My uncle has a saying — “You know how to create a million dollar business?” — Start with two million.
I need two million. xo
