Home made soap! It's cheatin' time!

Howdy kittens! I am so excited for this quick lil post and a Vintage Housewife cheat!
I know I've posted on how much fun it is to make homemade laundry soap! And how my fun camping class was just a hoot' & loved it... The smell, how it worked& the price! well I've gotta lil Vintage housewife find to share with y'all !!!!!
A few months back I found this box of Zote! Yup a box of Zote!!!! All flakey and grated for ya! Hello can I get a Yes Sista!!!!!! Yup all that elbow grease we've had to use grading is gone in one lil rip of a box!  Of course I had to give a test run and I have to say in a pinch id use it again!
Now I defiantly didn't like how large the flakes were but I crushed them a bit with my spoon before adding them to the mix.... I adore the fells napa scent more but that's personal...but on the flip side I adore the white Zote has a brightner! So to me it's a win win situation! Gals!!! Less work!!!!

I bought my box for $ 2.48 at Walmart! Super good deal for less work and I still feel good about doing it for my family! 
That's a great Vintage housewife find! The right kinda Cheat for sure!!!!
Thx for swingin by

Nothin I tell ya...and now taking on a lil summer time project is makein' for a non lazy days kind of summer &!i just couldn't wait to share!!!!!
Whelp gals you know where my lovin' of vintage trailers all started! With my lil doll house of a trailer ...a 1953 Field & Stream...Lil' CupCake! Plump full of 1950's vintage goodies & totally a Vintage Housewife camper for sure!!! Kiddos & Daddy-o worked so hard on her...

She was the first pink trailer I'd ever seen way back when & gals just went Vintage Housewife crazy over her! Of course pulled by my 1953 Ford Lucy ...what a pair:) just a vintage gals dream!!!

Now fast forward a bit to this amazing gal!! My Vagabond Gypsy trailer! A 1959 Streamline,  My dream trailer with two beds and enough molding to make a gal swoon!!!! Shiny & simply eye candy for sure! Full of pink appliances & a pink bathroom...oh my oh my...shabby chic , she just reminds me of a house! Winning best interior awards...& super sweet gals beggin if they can leave home and move in!!! :) fun fun fun!

The best part a heartfelt & a romantic story of hubby surprisin' me with her...this gal is the best trailer I have ever seen! This is my prize! 
my Big Ol' Gypsy Gal! Happy For sure with her! Plus once again my hubby & baby chicks help make her perdy!:) great family! Tee hee I'll keep um';)

NOW LOOK AT THIS!!! Summer project!  Yup...another vintage Gal in need of a lil love! 2 weeks ago daddy-o once again found me a gem! And just in time for my longest trip ever! 13 hours...next week!!!

This 1960's Terry was just the purrrrfect fit for me! I have been lookin for a very small trailer with a kitchen up front...we went search in' high and low...one end of California to the other...5 days 14 trailers later...he found this near my home...I have been dreaming of sort of a western cowgirl primitive cozy trailer that would fit right in nestled in the woods on some of my horseback riding adventures...plus small enough to pull long distances..& get back into the most primitive fishing spots! so in a short two weeks...my new gal went from this to this!
This is Moonshine Mama..! 2 weeks she's lookin' pretty darn cute already! Very rustic'primitive & super cozy! Super tiny lil thing...gettin all gussied up with country cozy goods! Dark wood and copper everything I can get my hands on! Sort of a twangy feel I wanna give her! 
She needs paint still and a few odds and ends but this gal is gettin ready for a wonderful camp out real soon!!!! Baby chick painted shutters & old wood signs &  I just love her...isn't she rustic cute! So that's it...another project:) any ideas gals send them my way!!!! Cuz she is far from done!!!!!!

Now kittens I want you to know I am so excited to see how many of you all now have stinkin adorable trailers! Thank you for the emails & comments about how you luv um'....how you want um'...& how we inspire ya...it just brings such joy to know ya'll love them too!!!
