Past Tents

Shery, our Ranch Farmgirl blogger, alerted me to this book for sale on eBay. I snatched it up right away. Used copies are available through Amazon, but it won’t be mine any time soon. This is a keeper.


Lots of good stuff inside.


The original recliner.


And powder room.


Do you think someday there will be a book about “the way we glamped?”

  1. Terry Steinmetz says:

    I sure hope so!

  2. CJ Armstrong says:

    Well-ll-ll, Mary Jane, I certainly hope so. I could help you write it . . :D!

    • MaryJane says:

      You’re on! When we’re in our 80s and sitting around the campfire after a day of fishing, we’ll do some dishin’ and call it a book.

  3. Winnie Nielsen says:

    These photos are so very cool! I love to see how life was lived in the 1920s. Lots of new traditions were started once people could be more mobile and national parks became available. Thanks for sharing!

  4. JoAnn Groth says:

    The book arrived yesterday–I showed my husband and he loves it. He’s more of a tenter than glamper: ) It’s a fun read.

Hello! I’m a big fan and love my 1973 Airstream more and more each time I open your magazine! My mom bought me your glamping book for Christmas and I just love it too! Keep it up, and thanks for the inspiration!

Here is my “glamping” photo, which is from the “summer home” that I created in my very own backyard. My tent, which was set up last year from May-October, proved to be my own little girl getaway, which I truly enjoyed. I plan on expanding on the idea this year and utilizing the antique clawfoot tub, which I purchased for just $50, as an outdoor spa too!Thank you for all of the wonderful ideas and inspirations—and the chance to win that fabulous glamping photo calendar!

    I loved all the pictures & now have even more DREAMS for my glamper!

  2. Winnie Nielsen says:

    These photos are just the best! Farmgirls just know how to make glamping an art as well as a fun time. So creative, so festive, and so practical all rolled up into one. Amazing!

  3. Jean says:

    You’re making me miss my airstream (2007-27FB international) something fierce. We moved across country (from TN to WA) and our Airstream is still at the kids’ farm 🙁

    Trying to find a way to get it here that doesn’t break the bank.

  4. Mary Jane,

    I can’t thank you enough for considering Thelma Lou and awarding her driver the calendar. I speak for her when I say:

    “We are thrilled to be alongside or even in the running with such great vintage gals and delighted to win. Thank you from the bottom of the giggly spot you put in our vintage traveling hearts.” Thelma Lou ’65 Kit Companion and Jalet Farrell
