...my vintage trailer dreams came true.
she'll be completely restored inside and out.
Thanks to Valarie, Glimpse of my World for hooking us up with Paul White, her guy that restored her first vintage trailer.
Anyone with tips or advice please comment.

I am pea green with envy. I want one of those so much I know it will be fantastic when you are done.

I'm so excited for you! I have a little, vintage trailer and we're starting to redo her. I know you're going to love yours! Can't wait to see more.

What a cutie she is too!
blessings to you.

I'm looking forward to seeing how you decorate it...with lots of RED i'm sure! I would love to have a vintage trailer (we have a one ton truck to pull it) but our HOA rules wouldn't let us park it here at home to renovate it. We are already paying a monthly storage fee to store our little travel van.

You have to visit a blog called www.happylovesrosie.com . She has TWO vintage caravans and they are beyond gorgeous.

I recently came across the Country Home magazine article on vintage trailers. They did a feature on them approx 5 years ago. It's here somewhere! If I find it, I'll send it to you. Carly

O.K. Missy I want to see YOU pull that to Canton and park right by me.:) It will be
nice to have a vintage neighbor...LOL. I love it and I can't wait to see how you decorate it. I know you have wanted one for so long and now all the fun starts. What year is it? I would think 50's being aqua. It is wonderful, good for you!!! You know that could be a wonderful playhouse for Marlee Pearl. Tell Milt and David "Happy Father's.

Pinterest had several pictures of cute trailers like your new one. I started pinning these decorated trailers, and calling them a second home. You are so talented, and I bet it will be so adorable. I can't wait to see your new decorated trailer. Please post pictures. Have fun!

I'm sure you'll have it fixed up very cute. Do you camp now? We have a camper (pull behind trailer style), that is not vintage. We love camping and are fortunate to have many state parks and a national park nearby.

'Happy Camper Girl', 'Girl Camping', and 'Sisters on the Fly' can be found on Facebook, and they have dozens of photos for inspiration. I know many ladies, myself included, enjoy the photos for inspiration as we all have the same goal to have our very own vintage trailer! I'm very much looking forward to the upcoming photos of your little beauty! Enjoy!

June 18, 2012 at 09:51 PM
Oh my Goodness! How darling is that?! I can't wait for the tour! :)
June 18, 2012 at 09:52 PM
I'm with Liz, how darling and I also can't wait to see how you doll it up to perfection! Have fun!

How fun! I've always wanted to decorate one in a 50's theme in pink with pink flamingo fabric and pink and white checkered curtains!
June 19, 2012 at 09:09 PM
Oh my, I'm so jealous!! I can't wait to see what you do to the inside. I know it will just be adorable. Happy camping!

I'm bummed that playlist is no longer on my blog or yours. I always loved your music and have spent time putting mine together as well. Have you been looking for a replacement?
I was hoping that this wouldn't be permanent. Doesn't 'sound' good.

Tak for denne lejlighed til at drøfte dette, føler jeg brænder for det, og jeg kan lide at lære om dette emne. Når det er muligt, fordi det samler information, skal du opdatere denne blog med flere oplysninger. Jeg fandt det virkelig nyttigt.

These are just precious....serene!! I think if I had one, it would be with a Keep Out sign when I wanted to dream!!
July 06, 2012 at 09:22 AM
My parents had one of these....same color! The inside had red and white checked curtains.

By analogy, the same law applies in this case. When the demand for an applicant is high and the supply is low, the client will have to settle for what is available and pay a big price for not hiring the most capable.

Go raibh maith agat as an iarracht trustworthy míniú a thabhairt do seo. Is dóigh liom an-láidir thart ar sé agus ba mhaith liom a chur in iúl níos mó. Má tá sé ceart go leor, mar atá tú a bhaint amach eagna dian breise a d'fhéadfadh, tú a smaointe a chur leis post breise an-chosúil leis an gceann seo le tuilleadh eolais a fháil? D'fhéadfadh sé a bheith fíor cabhrach agus úsáideach dom agus mo chomhghleacaithe.

I know many women, myself involved, appreciate the images for motivation as we all have the same objective to have our very own classic trailer! I'm very much awaiting the future images of your little beauty!
