A Winter Wonderland in the Pacific Northwest
Jenn & Shane’s Cozy Ski Chalet
I would slow down my pace as I walked Oliver past this sweet Airstream during our visit to Crystal Mountain a few weeks back. Just a few sites down from us, this Airstream captured my heart and I was absolutely dying to see the inside. Fortunately I didn’t have to stalk the Airstream too long before owner Jenn opened up the front door and I was able to introduce myself to her. She gave me a tour and shared her future vision of the interior with me. I tell ya, I left completely inspired — and, goodness, does she have great taste! If you look at the photo below, the front portion of the Airstream where you see the silver insulation — that will be covered with beautiful copper sheets and instead of having one dinette table, Jenn and her hubby Shane plan on installing two tables that can raise/lower to suit different situations — a coffee table and a dinette table both at the same time. Very clever! The interior is very light and bright that is complemented with beautiful white enamel pieces and copper accents.
This is not your typical Airstream however, this beautiful trailer’s sole purpose is that of a ski lodge. Outfitted with a bench to store ski boots and a row of hooks to hang up ski attire (all which dry quickly thanks to the most adorable wood burning stove), this Airstream is an RVing skier’s dream come true.
Jenn was so sweet to send me a list of links to all of her favorite items she has in her trailer — to share with you because she believes in supporting all the local small vendors and local makers, “I’m happy to share,” she wrote.
So without further ado, let’s begin the tour! Continue reading »
The Great Pacific Northwest
This wasn’t where I meant to be this weekend. I meant to be at home dusting off my workbench in order to begin working on some new jewelry designs for my Etsy shop. But rather, sweet friends of ours phoned us up and invited us to come and visit with them at their cozy cabin in the woods near Crystal Mountain. Needless to say, a trip to the cabin propelled the idea of silversmithing to the curb-and I was very okay with that. I was, as a matter of fact, in need of a snow fix and boy, did Miss Mother Nature deliver ♥ Continue reading »
