A Walk Around The Camp

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.
P6017296My 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!P6017297A peek inside. . .P6017300And fresh flowers in a vintage water jug on her picnic table.P6017299Another 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!  P6017309
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.P6017310You 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!

P6017329On her picnic table outside – another vintage water jug with fresh flowers.P6017325Just down the road - ‘Hoppy Trails’.  I love her little step – it’s message is clear.  Escape!P6017331The window on her door is covered with this gorgeous quilted runner.P6017332One of the gals designed these flags and had them for sale at the campout.P6017314There’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!)


  1. Those trailers are just adorable! We passed one on the interstate a few days ago, and I immediately thought of you. Can't wait to see your completed project.

    Have a great weekend!

  2. Oh, what darling little trailers! I'll bet you were getting all kinds of ideas for Daffodil.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  3. So fun to see these other trailers! Can't wait to see yours!

  4. Oh how I've enjoyed your tour of the "Sisters" camping adventure! I long for a little vintage trailer of my own ~ someday! Can't wait to see the progress on your Daffodil!

  5. I am loving the trailer tours:>) That little yellow and white one is adorable, I think I tend to love the older rounded shapes the best.

  6. Oh my...I am getting closer to getting the bug! That yellow one had me at hello!

  7. All of these are so fun, but I fell in love with the little yellow one!

  8. Oh,oh, oh.....I am in love!! Oh, please God, help me to find one!!! I love that little round window!

  9. Did she really pull her trailer with the VW bug? And I worry that my car couldn't pull a trailer! Love the tour, thanks so much!
