Home made soap! It's cheatin' time!

Howdy kittens! I am so excited for this quick lil post and a Vintage Housewife cheat!
I know I've posted on how much fun it is to make homemade laundry soap! And how my fun camping class was just a hoot' & loved it... The smell, how it worked& the price! well I've gotta lil Vintage housewife find to share with y'all !!!!!
A few months back I found this box of Zote! Yup a box of Zote!!!! All flakey and grated for ya! Hello can I get a Yes Sista!!!!!! Yup all that elbow grease we've had to use grading is gone in one lil rip of a box!  Of course I had to give a test run and I have to say in a pinch id use it again!
Now I defiantly didn't like how large the flakes were but I crushed them a bit with my spoon before adding them to the mix.... I adore the fells napa scent more but that's personal...but on the flip side I adore the white Zote has a brightner! So to me it's a win win situation! Gals!!! Less work!!!!

I bought my box for $ 2.48 at Walmart! Super good deal for less work and I still feel good about doing it for my family! 
That's a great Vintage housewife find! The right kinda Cheat for sure!!!!
Thx for swingin by

Long Lazy Days of Summer...NOT!!!!

Howdy lil darlins! I'm so not having lazy days of summer! I'm kicking up my heels and having a rooten' tooten' good ol time! 
I'm enjoying finding time again to nurture my self & my vintage housewife ways! Making & teaching a class of amazing fresh homemade laundry soap...yep during camping in my vintage Trailer with coolest girl group evah! Sisters on the fly!!!!!What could be better?! :)
Nothin I tell ya...and now taking on a lil summer time project is makein' for a non lazy days kind of summer &!i just couldn't wait to share!!!!!
Whelp gals you know where my lovin' of vintage trailers all started! With my lil doll house of a trailer ...a 1953 Field & Stream...Lil' CupCake! Plump full of 1950's vintage goodies & totally a Vintage Housewife camper for sure!!! Kiddos & Daddy-o worked so hard on her...

She was the first pink trailer I'd ever seen way back when & gals just went Vintage Housewife crazy over her! Of course pulled by my 1953 Ford Lucy ...what a pair:) just a vintage gals dream!!!

Now fast forward a bit to this amazing gal!! My Vagabond Gypsy trailer! A 1959 Streamline,  My dream trailer with two beds and enough molding to make a gal swoon!!!! Shiny & simply eye candy for sure! Full of pink appliances & a pink bathroom...oh my oh my...shabby chic , she just reminds me of a house! Winning best interior awards...& super sweet gals beggin if they can leave home and move in!!! :) fun fun fun!

The best part a heartfelt & a romantic story of hubby surprisin' me with her...this gal is the best trailer I have ever seen! This is my prize! 
my Big Ol' Gypsy Gal! Happy For sure with her! Plus once again my hubby & baby chicks help make her perdy!:) great family! Tee hee I'll keep um';)

NOW LOOK AT THIS!!! Summer project!  Yup...another vintage Gal in need of a lil love! 2 weeks ago daddy-o once again found me a gem! And just in time for my longest trip ever! 13 hours...next week!!!

This 1960's Terry was just the purrrrfect fit for me! I have been lookin for a very small trailer with a kitchen up front...we went search in' high and low...one end of California to the other...5 days 14 trailers later...he found this near my home...I have been dreaming of sort of a western cowgirl primitive cozy trailer that would fit right in nestled in the woods on some of my horseback riding adventures...plus small enough to pull long distances..& get back into the most primitive fishing spots! so in a short two weeks...my new gal went from this to this!
This is Moonshine Mama..! 2 weeks she's lookin' pretty darn cute already! Very rustic'primitive & super cozy! Super tiny lil thing...gettin all gussied up with country cozy goods! Dark wood and copper everything I can get my hands on! Sort of a twangy feel I wanna give her! 
She needs paint still and a few odds and ends but this gal is gettin ready for a wonderful camp out real soon!!!! Baby chick painted shutters & old wood signs &  I just love her...isn't she rustic cute! So that's it...another project:) any ideas gals send them my way!!!! Cuz she is far from done!!!!!!

Now kittens I want you to know I am so excited to see how many of you all now have stinkin adorable trailers! Thank you for the emails & comments about how you luv um'....how you want um'...& how we inspire ya...it just brings such joy to know ya'll love them too!!!
