My weekend away with Sisters On The Fly Sisters was wonderful! I had such fun, met new Sisters, spent time with dear Sisters I already knew and I learned a lot! Since my vintage trailer, Miss Daffodil, is undergoing major restoration right now I checked out every single detail possible on the vintage trailers around me! I looked at the way the trailers were decorated and how things had been ‘stashed’ in nooks and crannies.
My friend - and neighbor in the space across from me - made this quilted welcome flag for her trailer. Her space was a place where we seemed to gather often. Here’s her cute, little trailer. She told me to be sure to let you know that she didn’t ‘stage’ her outdoor space this time – this is ‘real’. This is camping!A peek inside. . .And fresh flowers in a vintage water jug on her picnic table.Another friend – and near neighbor in the campground – has a trailer similar to our ‘big’ trailer. She is shopping for a vintage trailer but, in the meantime, she enjoys Sister time with her ‘big’ trailer. She lives very close to the campground so she went home early every morning and again in the evening to feed her dogs. One morning, when she returned to camp, she brought her cute, little VW Bug. Believe me, this brought a lot of questions from passers-by. People wondered how she towed her trailer with this little car!A vintage-style tablecloth covers her propane tanks, a cute vintage-trailer-shaped lunch pail and a old bucket filled with flowers and flags decorates the front of her trailer. A lot of vintage trailer folks hide or decorate the ‘tongue’ of their vintage trailers.You probably won’t be surprised when I tell you that I was in awe as this little beauty arrived. I loved her from the moment I saw her! The detailing around the window on her little door is amazing!And next to the little yellow beauty - ‘Bella’.
Step inside and see her beauty. The dinette area. . . The kitchen area and a peek at the bed in the back. . .And her ‘dresser’ in the space where the old refrigerator used to be! On her picnic table outside – another vintage water jug with fresh flowers.Just down the road - ‘Hoppy Trails’. I love her little step – it’s message is clear. Escape!The window on her door is covered with this gorgeous quilted runner.One of the gals designed these flags and had them for sale at the campout.There’s so much more to share. I’ll save that for another day. Please come back and we will continue our stroll through the campground. I’m sure you will enjoy the rest of the tour.
(Many of you have asked to see the renovations on my little, vintage trailer. Next week I’ll begin to share Miss Daffodil’s journey. Today my sweetheart begins the ‘putting-her-back-together’ process. I’m getting excited! We have a goal to have her ready to make her maiden voyage this fall!)
