Welcome to My Trailer...Come On In

Wednesday, April 14, 2010

Many of you have asked to see more of my little trailer from seeing The Vintage Housewife's gracious sneak peek of her.
Well, what is following is probably more than you want to see but I hope you have some fun looking.


The facts: We bought her about 7 years ago from the ORIGINAL OWNER WHO WON HER ON THE PRICE IS RIGHT...YES, THE PRICE IS RIGHT. She's a 1969 Scotsman, so she's not as old as she looks.

Frankie and I spent that whole summer fixin' her up and I think she likes her new clothes and make-up alot better.
We love her and wish we could take her out more, that's comin...soon...so, for right now, we just "play house" in her.


We have tried to stay with a vintage "travel" theme inside of her, but have ended up mixing in a little gingham, bar-b-que, picnic, and honky-tonk western (all vintage, of course).

I'm going to try and not talk anymore, so you can come in and relax and enjoy the snapshots and just have some plain 'ol fun with us...

What can I make for ya?




Just look at these darlin' plastic Solo Cup holders...and yes, I also have the original box of disposable inserts to go in 'em too!

This vintage Bar-B-Que tablecloth is one of my very favorite things




These are the vintage Solo Cup disposable inserts that go to the cuties hanging over the sink... of course I don't actually use them...I want to have them forever!


Me 'n Levi having a coke and a blast at our"faux" picnic.


Here's my Hunny Bunny, Frankie...isn't he the cutest thing you ever saw?


and a little honky-tonk just like I promised...


Hey, what are they checkin' out???? Must be a cool car...



Don't I look like a cigar smokin' bad girl here?
(I'm not really bad, and I don't actually smoke it was just a fun shot).


I hope you had alot of fun and I hope you get to go camping with us soon!


23 of you say...:

Found you through Cat's blog. Wow both of you gals have such great vintage looks here. Hey I actually lived those years, it always seems more fun when you look back doesn't it than when you're going through it. Your decorating and collecting is just fantastic. I love the little red in the trailer. Hope you can do a great trip sometime soon.

Both you and Cat have the cutest trailers EVER!!! I so wish I had one. My parents have my grandparents old one, but it has been hidin' in the bushes for years so it is a mess. Maybe somedayyyy.
Enjoy, Dana

We are not in denial, we just know how we were meant to be treated and how we were meant to live as a family. Love your blog. I enjoy it so. And I am with you, the older clothes fit a woman's real curves so well. And are so classy and sexy.

love you blog and all that you do. I found cozy cups at my salvation army yesterday. After wondering if I would find the cup inserts ever, I googled Solo Co. and found that after popular demand, they have brought them back! You can order inserts and receive brown and white holders with the inserts. Now, we can have our cups and use them, too! Denise
