When I was a little girl, my grandparents would take us up North for 2 weeks every summer. The first week was in a cottage the second was camping in a tent. I loved the tent.
My grandfather would get one of those big, army-like canvas tents, you know the ones that filled the roof with buckets of rain and leaked. It came with a bag of poles and ropes and we waited patiently for what seemed like hours, for him to set it up. I remember the day we would go home was a full day of taking down and packing. It is one of my fondess memories.
I still love the idea of a tent. Not for camping but as a little retreat on our farm. I would absolutely adore an old circus tent, must be the gypsy in me. Of course these beauties would do just fine too.
Oh, look at these gorgeous things. I love that white one, just like a circus tent but more practical. And this fabulous striped on you can actually buy. I found it online at the THE GLAM CAMPING COMPANY
I have wanted a Yurt for a long time. It is tent-like but can be left up all year. Yurt means "Home". It is home for many Mongolian and Turkic people. I have watched programs where they have constucted Yurts and they go up quite easily. So roomy and comfortable.
I could really see myself with one of these at the back corner of our property. What a whimsical escape. I have an old brass bed just waiting for a place to be set up. That even looks like Rufus, it was meant to be. You can buy Yurts online.
Whether I go with a Yurt, an upscale canvas tent or a bohemian gypsy tent, I think I see a tent in my horizon.

P.S. My Dashboard for Blogger has changed. Is it just me or has that happened to everyone? I don't like it and I would like the old version back, does anyone know if I can do that? I would appreciate any help.
