Smooth river rocks have the perfect soft canvas for painting beautiful designs on them.  We use these to hold down napkins on the picnic table.  Cute and practical!  I created this DIY for GoRVing.  If you’d like to read more of my post, you can travel here to have a read.

Thank you so very much for being here (and there!)

Fab Finds Tuesday // RV Acccessories via

  1. If there was every a one-pot-wonder — this is it.  Small yet mighty — perfect for making soup for two, sweet and savory sauces, puddings and morning oats.  It is the perfect little deep frying vessel because it is just the right size to keep things under control.  Take for example these Fall Apple Pumpkin Fritters I made.  Heavenly I tell you — Heavenly :)  But mostly I use it to make breakfast porridge for B and the clean up is quite amazing.  Find it here
  2. Pumpkin Carving Templates :) B wants to carve out the trailer one and I am in love with the campfire scene — these are by far the cutest glamping and camping templates I have ever seen — from KOA
  3. I will admit, I have gone through more coffee making devices than I care to admit on the Airstream but when ordering more capsules for my Nespresso maker (that USED to be on the Airstream and since moved it indoors because it was a little too big for the Airstream counter) I discovered this little gem.  Tiny and space saving and the price can’t be beat — $99.00.  I was sold on the red one.  Check out all the colors (blue, white, cream, and more) here
  4. I’m not really a big fan of cornbread — mine always turns out so crumbly and dry and well — this recipe may be my saving grace.  Can’t wait to try!  Find it here

B: “Mommy, I know how to make a cloud!  Do you want to see?”

Me:  “Wow, sure!  But I don’t want any thunderstorms in the house okay…?”

B: “Haa haa mommy, don’t worry, that won’t happen.  I have a book from school and it tells me how to make one in a jar!”

Me:  “A jar?  Wow!  Let’s go make the cloud in the Airstream!  It’s raining outside right now so we can listen to the rain drops on the Airstream while we make your cloud”

B:  “Yay!!”

Astronauts, the moon and all of the planets in the solar system – these are the kinds of books we have for B on the Airstream and ones that he enjoys. At night, when we are tucked in and reading about the moon, the Airstream lends itself well as we pretend we are traveling through the solar system in our own personal space ship discovering new planets.

Sometimes it is the simplest of things that can open up a child’s world and their mind.

Next time you are out and about with your child, bring along a magnifying glass and watch them discover new things with amazement.

Went for a hike to the beach through Obstruction Pass State Park and found remnants of a pine tree all over the ground after the wind storm.  Decided to make a miniature Christmas tree for our Airstream using seashells for ornaments and some seaweed/kelp for tinsel.  It was the most beautiful tree ever.
