It’s always a good day when the new issue of Country Living lands in our mailbox.
The issues grow thinner + thinner,
which I hope is not a bad sign or anything.
I read an article about how Millennials are ‘killing’ various businesses
because they don’t like the same things that older people do.
I recently joined a very fun FB decorating group, Nesting With Grace,
+ nearly all the girls are Millennials.
It has been quite interesting to see their tastes in decor,
+ I was most surprised that the girls don’t buy vintage!
They love pillows but mostly go to Home Goods or Marshalls to buy them.
So. Kay, you’re asking, what does this have to do with Country Living?
Well, here’s what.
I’m guessing that none of the girls buy the magazine,
which might be the reason why the issues are shrinking so much.
But I digress a bit — I still love Country Living,
so fingers crossed it won’t go the way of Cottage Living, RIP.
Let’s have a look-see at the new issue!
Vintage campers are having their moment now, aren’t they?
We jumped aboard last spring + bought this little (new but looks older) charmer:
We have big plans to travel around the country with it,
+ I vote for a Key West destination, later this spring.
But I digress again, just a little bit — back to the campers in CL!
What’s not to love about this ginormous one (compared to ours?)
Look what they’ve named it — Trailer Swift!
Speaking of which,
it’s really cute when the camper’s name is posted on the back, like this:.
“Rosie” is a project of freelance writers + bloggers Matt + Beau,
whose blog, probably this, is very cool. Check it out.
Oh, + BTW, we’ve named our campter the “canned ham”,
+ I have plans to have some vinyl stickers made for it, soon.
Meanwhile, back the camper happiness in Country Living.
Who doesn’t love a vintage Airstream?
Here’s another vintage (1966) Airsteam:
It serves as a mobile pop-up shop
for small business owners + siblings, Austin + Amanda.
Look at how the interior’s been customized
for Amanda’s collection of vintage dinnerware merch!
Looks like the duo will have their own HGTV show,
which sounds like it would be a “must watch”, don’t you agree?
Anyway — I, too, have pop-up shop hopes + dreams for my own business!
Maybe this summer.
Our canned ham re-do is nearly complete,
+ if you’d like to see how we’ve customized the interior,
