Halted Restoration!

Yes I am crying... both for my trailer and my son....he broke his leg! And hes the one doing most of the work on my trailer. So we are at a stand still for a little while. Boys will be boys and he broke it playing football with his friends. Yes he is a little old...but what can I was important to make the catch! I just wish he had of thought ...."Geeze if I go for that ball I could get hurt and who will fix Mom's trailer". LOL!! This was the face he was wearing when he was explaining how important that catch was. I know he looks sincere but......

He really should get another one when this one is done and do it for himself. But then again, this one will go to him in the will. LOL!! He does great work.

Just For the Trailer!

Aren't these the cutest dishes! I was so excited to find these! They are going to be perfect in my Vintage Trailer when I go Glam-ping! I found the white placemates and thought they would be perfect....they even look kind of like a charger.

Here are a few more things I have found! The Snack tin matches great too. The pans and bowls I found are from Paula Deen's Line. Perfect! And I think the sign will go well. I am having so much fun I think I will be kind of said when its done. My boys have been working so hard its about done! I really can't wait.

The Bead Board Is In!

Those cuts can be tricky but with Ryan and Brandon!

Or so they keep telling me...hahahaha

Looking Good!

We just might make it!

Who Has the Dumb Dumb Tape?

They are working so hard! Whe have to have this done enough so we can stay in it for the family reunion....And I think they will make it. It won't all be done but I think it will be done enough to sleep in.

It is looking so good!

I love it when they work together!

The bead board is going on the walls...Wow!

The window is in!

The Fun Just Keeps Coming?

I am so glad our boys are helping with the trailer! They are the best helpers!

It has been so hot here I wish the trailer would have fit in our garage for some shade.

Framing in the windows and getting ready to put up wood on the inside...its getting so exciting!

Where did the trailer go?

Every time I walked out the door more was gone. They just kept finding more and more that needs replacing. But it sure is going to be cute!!
The whole front and where the benches go is gone.

I can't believe how much they have to keep taking off. I think our neighbors think we are crazy but thats ok until its done some people just don't understand.

The Floor is In!

It is starting to look like we are getting somewhere! I love the floor. And I think with the curtains and quilts it will be beautiful.

Have any of you watched "The Long, Long Trailer" with Lucile Ball? It was such a cute show. and so funny...I haven't watched any old movies for a long time it made me want to sit the rest of the day and watch old movies. And you know I think I will....
See you soon!

Decorating Vintage!

Look how darling this quilt is! I was going to make the quilt for the bed until I found this one! I ordered it from Country Door. I am hoping it matches and I think it will. I did start the quilt for the bed the table makes into. You can see it at I found the pattern at Blackbird designs blog. That will come out when we use the bed.
These are the curtains! They are the valances and I am putting lace under the valance.

I am almost done with the lace curtains. I am so excited to get it all put together...I know I am jumping the gun on this stuff but wait until you see the dishes......hahahahaha I am so ready!

Vintage Stove dial??

Ok I am now trying to find a dial for our stove, it is so hard. Everyone said just google it ...Yeah right...It is a Ward stove/oven and there is nothing out there about those ovens....Help...If anyone knows where I can get one I would love you forever!! I have been so amazed at how hard it is to find thing for our little trailer. Kelly is getting wood today to start on his part...I can't wait. If I didn't want to take our trailer on vacation I'd take vacation to work on her.
Stop by anytime,
