Places & Spaces: The Happy Camper

Cutesy Camper
It's summer (yay!), and with summer comes thoughts of getting away, camping, cottages and the great outdoors. My husband and I recently had the opportunity to get away for a couple of days thanks to friends who lent us use of their lovely little cabin on a lake, and it got me thinking about finding ways to make our own little getaway. We are far from being able to purchase our own cabin, but camper? Maybe.... How fun would it be to buy and renovate a little vintage camper or RV? While we are still far from making such a decision I thought it would be enjoyable to research vintage renovated campers and share my findings with you.

Seriously, how much do you love these little beauties? Way cuter and way more personality than the ones you buy straight off the production line with their notoriously ugly upholstery. So fun, so summer. Makes me want to get back out into nature again!

Currently Loving: Artist Andrew Salgado

I recently came across a new artist I had never heard of before and guess what? He is from my home town of Regina, Saskatchewan! Currently based out of London, England this super talented up and comer is creating such beautiful and original work that I just had to share it will all of you. Abstract portraits have become one of my very favorite styles of paintings, it just adds so much more depth and emotion to the piece than a standard portrait. To me you actually end up seeing more of the real person under the mask of the exterior and you see more of the artist and his interpretation of his subjects emotional state and essence as well.

I give you Andrew Salgado!
 Wouldn't you love a portrait done by this guy? I know I would!
