VICTORIA visits CAMP PEACOCK

Well the September issue of VICTORIA is just hitting the news stands. This issue is my favorite. These images are the extra shots featured on the Victoria website. The magazine has a whole different series of photos. This shot is with Dinky. He is my miniature donkey. He is decked out in his antique mail bag, holding maps for the big adventure.

These baskets are such a great seller. I just love the paper labels against the willow.


There is nothing more romantic than an outdoor bath, and by candlelight no less.....Aaahhhhhh
calgon take me away.....
(Notice the hot water tank on this turn of the century bath....it is fueled by an oil light to heat the water then dispersed through a spigot) Love it !!!!






This is the porch of the tent. I love the scalloped canvas that surrounds this tent. I made these tents as a limited edition for the line. I just think they turned out fantastic. I hope others like it too.




I love anything with a crown, even a lantern.....




Oh, more crowns.........




The sound of a wind up turntable, with an old vinyl record, is truly terrific in the wilderness. So Indiana Jonesey dont cha think???? Oh, and that sweet little canvas parasol for two......Well that is an antique tractor umbrella that was used to keep the sun off the farmer as he plowed the fields.....Yes, I am going to reproduce this wonderful treasure in a reclaimed canvas with a terrific french graphic. I just love the size...it is perfect for a table for two, or for a picnic in the wild.

Hi Gina ~

I thought I recognized your name when I came onto your blogatorium from your Peacock Park website ~ and remembering the WWC article from earlier this year. {I was in the next month's issue.} It was a lovely article, by the way.

Anyway, I love your style, I purchase your products, and your blog is so much fun. I will be back for sure!

Ciao bella,
Suzanne

PS
Enjoy that bath!

Gina,
What a lovely site. When your music kicked in I nearly fell over.
I wanted to grab my reitred husband and bring him in the computer room to dance with me, the music was so romantic. May I ask what we're listening to? I would so love to have this music.
I will be returning often to view your site and I must confess to listen to this romantic music. Could you email me how to acquire it? It would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much. Betty

Ohhhh my goodness Gina!!! This romatic out of Africa style tent could turn me into a camping girl!!!
I adore it and the french touches are just making me swoon. I saw the article in Victoria and had to come on over and meet your blog.
You are sooo amazingly talented,
I'm a fan for life.
