How fabulous are these cookies?? It was love at first site when I first saw these silver vintage trailer cookies recently on Facebook! So, of course, I had to contact the owner to inquire about these little darlings. Lisa from Sugarlily Cookie Company was so sweet to respond to my request about purchasing these cuties plus, I wanted to know more about her delicious company. “Sugarlily is a boutique baker of beautiful hand-decorated sugar cookies for special occasions. We cater to your individual needs and ideas to create custom cookies.”
“I am a self-taught baker who caught the cookie bug from Martha Stewart about 20 years ago after seeing her beautiful copper cookie cutters in her old Martha-by-Mail catalog. I run this small business from my home while raising three children with my husband. I would love to have a little trailer someday to sell cookies.”
I hope that Lisa’s dream of selling her cookies out of a vintage trailer comes true sooner than later. How divine would that be? In the meantime, you can inquire about purchasing cookies (have a cookie idea for your special event? Lisa encourages custom designs) here, “Like” her on Facebook here and view tons more cookie photos here on Flickr. Enjoy!

Last month while staying outside of Jackson Hole in one of my favorite tiny towns ~ Wilson, Wyoming, we frequented the Aspens Market: Grocer, Butcher, Deli. I adore small towns and I migrate towards small town “Mom & Pop” stores. While shopping for ingredients for our dinner menu, I discovered the cutest little reusable sandwich bags. I had to buy two for our backpacks since we always pack a lunch.
There is nothing I love more than hand-made items and better yet ~ when they are made in the USA and I can buy them in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, well then ~ my heart just sings!
I found out these little embroidered cloth bags are made by owner and work-at-home Mom ~ Amanda of BleuRoo.com. The cloth bag is 100% unbleached cotton while the liner is water and stain resistant nylon. You have to check out BleuRoo’s adorable Etsy shop where Amanda sells many different styles of this reusable sandwich/snack bag along with cloth napkins and lunch totes, all personalized if you wish. So darn cute, you have to have one or two, don’t you?!!

One thing is apparent to me ~ Airstreamers are the nicest people you would ever want to meet. Up until last week when we finally purchased our very own Airstream, we attended various rallies and events just as onlookers and came away with a sense of “family” after meeting so many diverse and really cool people. One of those special people is Corrine Vegter of Dusty Dog Studio. We met Corrine, her husband Brian (who is also an artist), their dog and their vintage 1962 Airstream at Alumafandango here in Denver. Corrine’s love of Airstreams and art is combined in her fabulously cute ceramic travel trailers. I just fell in love with them. Each piece has its own character just like the vintage trailer it portrays. And, all the ceramic trailers light up ~ now that is special! She also designs and creates necklace pendants and retro Airstream t-shirts. So happy to introduce you all to Corrine and her Dusty Dog Studio ~
“Corrine Vegter is known for are her ceramic travel trailer lanterns. The
inspiration came from her travels with husband, Brian, in their ‘85 VW camper
van. Spending time at campgrounds around the country looking at old tin can
trailers sparked her creativity. “Seeing the lights on in those old campers at
night made me curious as to what’s going on inside them.” she says. “I thought,
why not create that same thing in clay?” Corrine and Brian now have a 1962
Airstream Bambi. When the couple is not traveling Corrine is creating work for
shows or custom ceramic trailer lamps for customers.”

I really enjoy sharing some of my favorite things with you! I just love this retro kitchen timer by Kikkerland. After reading many reviews on this particular item, I was a bit scared off. So, I asked two ‘Streamers whom I knew owned one, Monica B. from Just 5 More Minutes and Laura D. from Riveted. What I realized after getting rave reviews from my friends is that if you don’t wind the timer all the way around first, the timer won’t work hence some less favorable reviews. Think of it as winding a clock ~ you simply turn the silver rim of the timer clockwise all the way around then go back counter-clockwise to set to your desired time. It works perfectly ever time. I purchased my “Red” Kikkerland Kitchen Timer in Fredericksburg, Texas at Red which is a very hip and retro store worthy of checking out. Or you can purchase it here. The timer comes in several cool colors. Enjoy!
