Camp Shabby

I constructed this little teepee in the guest room last week and decorated
it with a cowgirl theme.  I was about to take it down, but suddenly I was
inspired to create a very cottage style pretend campsite I am calling
 Camp Shabby.

With three wooden dowels and a canvas tarp from Lowes, I constructed
the teepee in minutes.  No sewing, and no stapling or tacks.  I just wound
string around the dowels, cut a small hole to the tarp to fit through and I
was done.  I headed back to Lowes and found a little white trellis, some
flowers and a little terra cotta planter and I was on my way.

I painted a little sign and added some craft flowers.  The flowers were left
over from the ones I added to the ribbon on the sun bonnet and that is
now hanging on the trellis.

It was a fun way to spend a very hot afternoon here in South Texas.
Hope you enjoyed my little bit of whimsey!
