Thrifty Camping in Re Run Red

Gas prices are high ~ so lots of folks will be taking
their vacations closer to home. Here's an idea I shared
with you last summer ~ backyard camping.

In Re Run Red of course. By now ya'll must know how
much I love red! So grab a vintage thermos and a
vintage coffee pot to brew coffee on the campfire.

As the sun sinks slowly in the west, I'll be dreaming of
thrifty holidays.

Hop on over and visit ~


Bentley and I are postponing our What's for Dinner Party
until a later date. We will keep you posted.
Bentley says Woof to Y'all!

  1. What a wonderful idea ~ Mr. vintage and I camped in our driveway when we finished our little retro camper ~ such fun~! ;-) Hugs to Bentley

  2. Looks like the perfect little weekend getaway.
    Cozy, red, and Bentley....what could be better ?

  3. Great idea, Susan. Gas is just way too high!

  4. This looks like so much fun! I remember my sons camping in the backyard! ♥

  5. Oh Susan Sweetie...
    How much fun would this be? I love seeing the little tent propped up and how cute are the lights. Just camping out back with the critters.

    Great idea, and yes gas is way to HIGH, especially when you have a truck. Eats it I tell you.

    I bet Bentley would have a blast camping out. Isn't it amazing how much better everything tastes cooked outdoors on a Coleman camp stove, in an iron skillet of course.

    That might be fun to do with the kids. We have already been fighting the mosquitoes here, so we would need a netting of some sort.

    Have a great week sweetie. Many hugs and much love, Sherry

  6. My daughter and family usually take off for the East Coast, due to gas prices they've decided to do some camping instead. hugs ~lynne~

  7. So cute and the music, too! I remember this post, well. I love all the red! Sitting here in my winter jammies, blogging.
    Bentley, be sure and take your dog bed to the tent :)

  8. how cute, you need my tartan plaid tin picnic basket I just picked up!

  9. Your fun vintage accessories make camping look so romantic.

  10. It is fun to do stuff like this. All of equipment is lookin so stylish!

  11. So much fun! I remember one year my boys spent the entire summer camping out in the back yard!

  12. Marvelous photos!

    Glad to be following you now...

  13. Cute idea Susan! My boys would love this:)

  14. It may be a rerun, but I had not seen it. Nice idea.

  15. It looks romantic! Lots of mosquitoes in the summer where we love. I might need a zip up tent.

  16. It's been raining here for a week now! OH MY, NO camping here without a slicker,hehe! BUT I DO miss the perked coffee over a campfire. "LOVE,LOVE,LOVE" that!!! The smell is intoxicating... Love your post, it's so much fun...NOW I'm off to Round Up a cup of Java! Hey maybe I'll have it in a TIN CUP!

  17. I love to camp at home or otherwise. And if you're camping with the color red it's even better. Love how the chair turned out. Mimi

  18. I am so happy to view Re Run Red, such a clever name! Your backyard camping adventure is so FUN and I adore your vintage camping accessories. The Scotch cooler brings back memories from the 1950's. This would be a great idea for when the grandsons visit me this summer. We may have to try it for ONE night....LOL.

  19. So charming and so fun! And I bet Bentley loves it too!

  20. Your quilted tent with lights is so adorable & cozy, it ALMOST makes me want to camp! Love your vintage thermos~

  21. What a wonderful red vintage camping trip! Unfortunately we have had rain for 45 of the past 54 days. We would be swimming instead of camping!

  22. Hi there, I am calling by today as I am busy catching up with all the blogs I missed reading while I was away, especially other Outdoor Wednesday participants. Red is my favourite colour as well. :)


Oliver and I LOVE and read every comment.
