I adore MaryJane Butters. She’s a self-made gal for sure. Amazing, creative, adventurous…She manages to mix her granola with glamour so gracefully.
If you’ve visited the site even infrequently you know I’m crazy about vintage campers and home decor. Glamping is kind of the best of both worlds. Camping, sure…but how awesome to be in the woods and drift off to sleep on a feather bed under the soft glow of a chandelier. Pretty awesome and awesomely fun.
If that’s your thing, you probably already know about the book “Glamping with MaryJane”. We had a chat about MaryJane’s amazing Airstream on the Facebook page about a month ago. I sent a note to her and let her know what a fabulous response there had been to her work, and she graciously sent along a signed copy of her book for me to give to a guest of the site!
Here’s the blurb from Amazon:
MaryJane Butters’ go-to guide for putting glamour into camping
“Glamping, or glamour camping, one of the MaryJane’s pet concepts, is about the juxtaposition of rugged and really pretty, grit and glam, diesel and absolutely darling.”-The New York Times.
Glamping-unleashing your inner wild while wearing a pair of fishing-lure earrings-is for every woman (or man!) who ever had a get-away-from-it-all fantasy (with a few frilly embellishments thrown in). Learn about the never-fail campfire, cooking with cast iron, how to change a flat, and much, much more. Follow the growing Glamping movement at maryjanesfarm.org and nationalglampingweekend.com.
Like the infamous Calamity Jane, who said, “I figure if a girl wants to be a legend, she should go ahead and be one,” MaryJane Butters coined the term glamping years ago when she founded her unusual Idaho canvas wall-tent bed & breakfast, which was featured in The New York Times Magazine and Travel & Leisure as “the place to be.” Legend status achieved, MaryJane lives in Moscow, Idaho, where she runs her many businesses, which include a successful organic farm, product lines, a bed & breakfast, and MaryJanesFarm magazine. This is her fourth book.
