"Glamping" in a Tent!

Kelly C. from Arizona sure knows how to take "camping" and turn it into "glamping"! You will be amazed at what she can do to a plain old tent! 
A darling Home Away from Home.
She is a Sister on the Fly, Sister #1385. She had only 3 days to prepare for a camp-out! Come inside and take a peek! 
You will want to stay awhile...

Before
After
So warm and cozy you forget it's a tent!
 Look at all those pretty rugs and vintage suitcases...
A washstand and pot! She was dry~glamping, she may have used it all...
My favorite, the bed. Made perfect for a cool night in the desert. 
Love her woolly buddy too. Precious.
Kelly makes darling vintage clothing and she wore this "glamping"! 
You go girl!
Thanks Kelly for letting me feature your tent!

P.S. I have been asked if Kelly has a blog: 
No she does not but maybe we can talk her into it!

I've been wanting to join "Sisters on the Fly", but I don't have a trailer; I know that you don't need a trailer, but I figured most people would have one - I love what Kelly has done - it makes me want to rush out and buy a tent!

D said...

Amazing! I wanna camp in it, too.

OH WOW...did this ever take me back in time. When I was 6-7 years old, I would go visit my grandma, she would make a big tent with blankets on her cloths line..then she would bring pieces of her furniture out and put it in the tent and glam it all up just like this! I was in heaven for days! :D

Dana said...

Wow! Loved this! Thanks for sharing the pics with us

Joanne Kennedy said...

Does she have a blog? I would love to read it if she does. I love this look. If I went camping for a week or longer I may glam up my tent, but for a few nights, it is to much work. Plus, who has the room to pull this off. Did she use a real bed or a blow up? I love it!

Marilou of Lulu's Lovlies and Heartful Creations said...

Love that, so darling! Thanks for a great post! Hugs Marilou

GerryART said...

Tracey said...

I am really amazed.. I can't imagine setting all that up! What a cute, cozy, homey feel she has camping. Would love to come and spend the day in that tent!! How fun!!!

Lori @ Katies Rose Cottage Designs said...

Ohhhh my gosh!!! I would be able to tent camp in that ~ It is amazing!!!

Donna O said...

WOW! I think my husband and 3 teen age sons would freak out if I did that to our tent---HOWEVER...it might just motivate me to buy my OWN tent!!! Funny, I wonder if I did that, would they all come and visit with me??? Those are fabulous photos!!! Thanks for sharing.

MJF Sister...Donna!

Pen Pen said...

Unbelievable... and I swore I would never camp in a tent again! I would definitely sleep there! Adorable!!!

Sarah said...

Definitely a rare scene! I'm not much of a camper, but this tent would tempt me. ;-)
Thanks for sharing! ~ Sarah

Ann@A Sentimental Life said...

upscale...a bed in a tent, now I could handle that! gorgeous. The dog looks like my cousins dog Walter.

Ceekay- Thinkin of Home said...

That is the way to camp...I still am NOT staying in a tent...but it is cute!!

Nicole said...

I am so excited to have discovered your blog! Loved these pictures of the glamping tent. I might even be able to enjoy that myself!

kpaints said...

Absolutely over the top!! Love it! She is so creative...I love all the tiny feminine touches! Perfect!
I will become a SOTF in September...so exciting!

Elaine @ Sunny Simple Life said...

That is amazing. I keep thinking of how much time that must have taken her but that is sort of the point of glamping is all the primping. So romantic.

Patricia said...

What FUN!

Shelia said...

Oh, my Lord! That's amazing! Now how did she get all that stuff transported to the camp site? Well, however she did it, it looks fantastic. I could possible stay there, if it wasn't too hot! Love how she has her toilet paper hanging and is that a blow dryer? :)
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

June said...

ne. Maybe he won't think I'm so crazy next time we go camping. I always pack my favorite and prettiest quilts and pillows and pictures in the camper when we go and he thinks I'm a nut. Now he will know there are more nuts in the world too. This is so BEAUTIFUL!
sending hugs...

Kathleen Grace said...

rosaspicks said...

I am so in love with Sisters on the Fly! I was buying a tiny trailer a couple of months ago and was so looking forward to joining a camp out! But title issues came up and the deal fell through. I just hope if I ever get to join, my digs will be as spectacular as that tent ended up looking!!!

NanaDiana said...

That girl needs a blog-NOW!! What a great get away..LOVE it!

I don't know about the Fly girls but I am going to look them up. xo Diana

"Glamping" is new to me. Wow!
Oh those fabrics . . .

Donna @ Party Wishes said...

WOW! How does she transport all of it? So pretty!
I love your chickens and your first egg...very exciting! Are the chickens bothered by the heat at all? Hope you are having a great summer!

Carla said...

Thanks for the pictures & inspiration - I absolutely love this. Maybe I can start camping without waiting on a trailer now.

Busy As Can Be said...

Hello Maryjane,
Oh my gosh i could just climb right into that bed with a book and not come out. How fun!

Wanda said...

I love this, my girl friends and I have joined the glamping craze and have done several glamps, I just returned from a weeks glamp in my vintage 1977 Argosy trailer. We love the glitz and the oohs and aahs from the other campers. This gal did an amazing job with her tent, Beautiful. And as a glamper I know it takes a lot of time to set it up and take it down but it is so much fun in between. Happy glamping gals. TTFN

Lydia said...

ND Prairie Gypsy said...

I love it! I'd like to know how she transports all that to the site? Does she have a trailer just for all her glamping gear?
