Smile An Airstream Xmas

The wife and kids took my hints and gave some stuff I can and will use in the Airstream.

My wife gave me 4 neat Marble Canyon cups that match my Airstream dishes. She gave me two neat lexan wine glasses from REI. The stems of the wine glasses unscrew and nest in the tops so that they stow nicely in the trailer and take very little space. Unbreakable, of course. She also gave me a neat hand-turned wood wine stopper.

The cups don't nest because of the handles. Right now, in my shop, I'm making a rack for the end of the galley cabinet that will hold the four cups and the wine stopper. The rack is all cut and sanded and waiting for the Galaxy Graphite laminate that I have on order at Home Depot. There is a big empty space at the ends of the overhead cabinets at the rear curbside corner of the galley and the rack will br mounted there. I'll post a photo when it is complete.

Step daughter gave me a "Quick Vise", a neat plastic vise that can be used in the trailer or in the house. It just clamps temporarily to any table.

Thumbs up Sounds like you did okay!

One of the nice things about being a new Airstreamer is that now people can think of all kinds of neat stuff to get us on special occasions. I had totally run out of things to buy from Pampered Chef and Tupperware parties. Heck, now it's like I'm starting all over setting up housekeeping again!

Good luck with the wine glass holder. Sounds like a great idea!

Cherie

Hey, I don't even own an Airstream and my most favorite Christmas gift was the Pottery Barn replica of the 1953 Flying Cloud Airstream trailer that my daughter and family gave me, which now adorns my desk!
I know what you mean, Kentucky Girl - all the stuff we used in our tent for 32 years doesn't go well with the motorhome, so it is fun getting new "junk" for it. Happy New Year to all.

Pottery Barn Sale

The PB has the vintage Airstream on sale right now for $34.99. Web site is 'potterybarn.com'. Nice looking rig. I'm thinking of cutting out the windows and adding frosted glass windows with interior lights.

Cool Hey, flyfshr!

I just noticed your Azatar (sp?) and just have to tell you that I recently spoted (and photographed) a 1959 Trade Wind A/S that has been sitting down by a riverbed for the last 30+ years. I posted about it recently because I was kind of excited about finding it. Then I came to realize that it has been there through a few floods, so I doubt anything in it is salvageable. But perhaps some of the parts could be used, if you have any need for extras. I'm on the trail of who owns it, and would be glad to give you directions, etc. if you have any interest. I'll attach one of the photos I snapped.

As for me, I received a Sears Craftsman Rivet gun (#974749). I saw Brett's at Thanksgiving. It really helped my wife that I memorized the item number and repeated it over and over and over between Thanksgiving and Christmas. How'd she know I wanted that?

I also bought a present for "Jellybean III", a step carpet cover. I put it under the tree and wrote "Jellybean III" on the gift tag. The money pit truely is part of the family.

The "Silver Twinkie" got an Endless Breeze 12 volt fan made by the same folks as the Fantastic Vent. Works great but will work even better this summer.
