a printed tent





I used to go on camping trips with my family when I was younger. These trips were always so fun, except for the mosquito bites. I think my favorite part of it was the pitching and readying of the tent. I remember helping my dad with hammering the pegs into the ground, pulling the ropes and finally seeing the tent take shape. And all I wanted to do was crawl inside and sleep with the dozen or so pillows I brought. There was something cozy about tents to me. This print makes me wish that summer arrives tomorrow and that a camping trip is on the horizon.

This print is a part of a series and follows the birdhouse, bow-maker and rocking horse.

psst...I've created a Formspring account. If you're the curious type, ask away and I'll do my best to answer your questions.

I've such happy memories of camping :) Just wish the UK weather was a little more reliable :) My favorite was sitting round the fire at night chatting and singing and watching shooting stars :)

Love the tent print! You picked the perfect colour of green.
Of course, now I'm seriously impatient for some warmer weather!

jax - oh yes, round the fire, roasting marshmallows too!

Nauli - what a good idea - a camping trip invitation by greeting card :)

SogniSorrisi - thank you!

Sonnet and Mayhem - a nice light green, I like it too. Warmer weather in just a couple of months!
