Mrs. Padilly's Heirloom Glamping Table

Creating an Heirloom Glamping Table

Did you ever repurpose something you own, that you did not know the value of, and it became priceless? Well, that is exactly what happened when I created my Heirloom Glamping Table to bring on camping trips in my Casita.

Bye-Bye “Free Range” ~ Hello “Miss Roxie”

In June of 2017, after sitting in covered storage since her last camping trip to New Braunfels in August 2016, I was finally able to bring myself to sell my beloved Casita, Free Range.  While I seriously thought about keeping both travel trailers (my Casita and my new Shasta), IRead the Rest…
