Glamping? What is a Glamping Roundup doing on One Pretty Thing? Well for one, I love the idea behind glamping (glamour + camping). It gives me a great excuse to hit up the thrift stores for mix and match china, sew a colorful oilcloth tablecloth and deck out my camp site! And two, when a reader emailed me earlier this month mentioning my Camping Roundup and asking if I could do a Glamping Roundup, I realized it would be a fun way to share one of my favorite girlie projects with you.

Since I pretty much LIVE on the internet hunting down crafty projects, I come across a ton of other links that are fabulous, but not necessarily DIY related. I began putting together informal girlie link lists and activity roundups and emailing them to my girlfriends at the end of the week. When Leah (Hi Leah!) asked me if I could do a Glamping Roundup, I realized I already had a bunch of links ready to go out in my email, so it wouldn't be difficult at all! Interested in my link lists? Leave me a comment! I've thought about setting up a simple blog where I could share them with everyone, so if you'd like to see that let me know.

Looking for more camping ideas? Check out last years Camping Roundup which is full of camping, food and activity ideas. Enjoy!

    Ooh. Thanx for this. If you check my latest post you’ll see I’m yearning for a gypsy caravan of my own, but glamping it up gypsy style just might fill that void.

  2. Junie Moon Says:

    I love the whole glamping concept and have done a bit of internet searching myself for ideas and projects to try. Now you’ve saved me endless hours and I shall check out all the links you provided. Great job!

    HA! I have never heard of glamping…I love it!

  4. Heather Forrey Says:

    First of, I had never heard of glamping. I love it. I am in the process of hunting down an affordable used camper to tour around Europe on the weekends as I don’t do tents (it ALWAYS rains on me.) So thank you for sharing this to give me even more ideas (I can hear my husband groaning already) & second, I would LOVE to see all your non crafty links as well. So another blog would be great. Thanks for all your hard work, I love this site.

  5. Leah Says:

    Hi Rachel,

    Yay! It’s wonderful, and again, I’d love to see your other blog when it happens, that way I can have a favourite and second favourite blog, both written by you. In my blog travels, I always read yours last, just like cheesecake, you gotta save the best for last!

    I’m interested in the link list!

    We go camping every summer in Spain for 3 weeks.We use this tiny throw-tent-thingy
    and well it’s like back-to-basic style.I hate it.Only good thing is we are in Spain,3 weeks,and eat spanish food hahahaha

    Since we travel with a volkswagen polo car(not that big)everything we take is suppoed to be small,or multi-tasking.I’d love to glam up our campingsite so it isn’t just a little square of grass with a tent and a table :)

    LOVE oyur website!!!

    My wife and I go “Glamping” with two Standing Room Tents “Brand Name” we put together. They are each 10′x10′ and have 8 1/2 ceilings so it gives us essentially 2 rooms with plenty of room to stretch out! We use one room for a bedroom which we can put a queen size airbed and frame, two chairs and a table. The other room we use for a kitchen living area. It has enable me to take my wife camping which she would never do before because of the discomfort. Plus, the whole thing goes up in about 10 min. and it is relatively inexpensive.
