Several weeks ago, in anticipation of the arrival of my new, little vintage trailer, I ordered something special from etsy.com. Every trailer has a lock. And locks need keys. And keys need key rings – so they don’t get lost. Having a key ring is a good thing but, hey, who wants just any old key ring? Not me! I wanted something special. Something that would shout at me: ‘Here are your trailer keys, ma’am!’ A talented lady has an Etsy shop filled with key rings and earrings all about vintage trailers. (She makes other things, too.) You can visit her shop here. Look at these cute, little teardrop trailer earrings.(at the top on the back). My trailer is a style that doesn’t have wings so I emailed Joy and asked if she could make a key ring without wings. She quickly responded to tell me she could do that, so I ordered them right away. A few hours after I sent my order she let me know that my order was ready! And she sent a picture so I could see it. I could hardly believe her fast service. My order was in the mail the next day and arrived a couple of days after that. I could hardly wait to show you! See what I got for my trailer keys? It even has a bottle opener. And I got some earrings to match!
One of these days we will repaint Daffodil – we’ll give her a facelift, of sorts – and she will look much like the little trailer on her key ring. Someday Daffodil and I will be ready to go on an outing together. When we do she will be showing off her new colors and I’ll be wearing my new earrings. And I’ll tell you all about it!
