Sweet trims for my Trailers..

Still can't get out to camp, but no reason to not trim out my trailers to make them feel loved...
 fun festive colors for the Aristocrat...
and pastel colors on vtg. lace and embroidered linens for the Serro Scotty...
 
Both banners were made for me by Marilyn, back in Texas.. 
I sent her the blue and yellow banner ...
 
 
The banner swap was a fun swap.

Barn Trailers...

Well the trailers and motorhome are still tucked away in the barn,, until the new Well is drilled,, we want to keep them out of the way...
Oh how I miss taking a afternoon nap in them....
 
Oh and on the plus side,, even tho the Motorhome is in the barn,, I still can watch T.V. in it.
Maybe I will sneak out there tomorrow and chillax..... and hide away from the world.
 
The only problem,, which one shall I hide out in?
 Motorhome...
 Aristocrat...
Scotty....???

Spammers strike again!

Well, this is frustrating... my Blogs are getting annoying SPAM comments.. like this one,
 """Wow! this is Amazing! Do you know your hidden name meaning of your name?"""..
it shows it's from an Unknown source...
 
UUGH! why can't people be nice? I keep trying to block them via the SPAM box.. but today I had 9 of these in my 'waiting for moderation' box..
Hopefully these Spammers can't attach themselves to anyone who reads or comments on my blogs.
I wonder if anyone else is getting Spam comments lately.. Is Blogger the next target?

June 4th, 2020

Well, since my last Post, in mid May,, the private and State campgrounds are still closed to camping.
 
And then,,, this past weekend.. we got an Advisory Weather Warning... for Lightning, Thunder, Rain and Hail and 40mph winds...
So,, we had barely an hour to stow away all the lawn furniture and decorations, as well as put both trailers into the barn along with all the decorations around the trailers...
Not to much longer and the winds kicked up, the rain & thunder and lightning and Hail started....
 
We decided to leave everything packed up,, because according to the weather report,, we would be due in more rain and winds for the next few days..
 
Tomorrow the rains are due to start and stay for 2-3 days..
So hopefully by the end of next week we will be back to normal weather and we can pull the trailers and lawn furniture and decorations back out..
 
Oh I miss my lil backyard Campground...
 
Happy Thursday...

No Camping Yet...

There is still no camping,, due to the COVID19...
We can not go to Campgrounds or State Parks to camp.. until our State will allow the Campgrounds and Parks to open up for camping...
 
So until then,, I will just spend time out in my little trailers,, maybe I will bring some books and magazines and some hand stitching sewing projects to leave in my trailers,, and then I can hang out in my trailer and relax with reading or sewing...
 
I recently made a sweet little Banner/Bunting for my Aristocrat trailer..
 I was able to use up some scrap fabric to make this....
 now to decide where to hang it in my trailer... 
 
Recently I received a very sweet  and precious gift from Nicole, a dear friend in Sandy Hook, Conn..
 It is the little pink glass Scotty dog, salt cellar, on the bottom shelf... It is so sweet...and goes perfect with my small collection of Scotty dog Salt & Pepper shakers. 
 And, Nicole also sewed this cute blue/pink Scotty dog.. I Love It!
While tiding up in my trailer, I found these 2 mini aprons,, that I had tucked away last year...
I made the pink one and Darlene, a sweet friend made the blue one for me.. 
 
Oh,, how I wish I could be camping.. but for now,, I will just be day dreaming about camping...

Le Chat... has escaped!

Well,,, Le Chat, has escaped from the barn,,,,
and is now out playing in the field with the Flamingo Palace...
 Le Chat was sooo happy to have her Solarlier hanging to catch some sunshine..
 and as always,,, got the Camp Sign up!
 hadn't  put much decorations out yet,,
which was a good thing, because a short while later we got some strong gusts of winds,, and things went everywhere.. '(that was yesterday)..
 
Then today,, we had to put all the stuff away because a thunder/rain storm was rolling in... we got a good round of lightening, thunder, rains and winds,,, thank goodness it only lasted for about 30minutes.
Tomorrow I will put everything back out.. and then maybe decorate a bit more..
At least the girls are outside frolicking in the pasture...
It is great to have a 14acre yard to play in!...

The Flamingo Palace has Escaped!

Well... the Flamingo Palace has escaped from the barn,,,
 Pulled her out,,, cleaned her up from her Winter's nap.. and hooked her up to electricity..
The Flamingo Palace is ready for Glamping!
 Blankets are laundered,,,,  the floor has been washed and the Winter dust bunnies have been dusted away...
 put a few goodies out ....
 all I need is the coffee maker, which is still tucked away in the cabinet...

I still can't decorate around the outside because of the winds... but hopefully in the next week or two the winds will die down so I can add my twinkle lights and other goodies around the outside...

 In the mean time,,, 'Le Chat'  my 1963 Serro Scotty is still in the Barn...
just waiting for her turn to come out and play... Soon wee trailer, Soon....
 
If you click on the photos, they will 'em-biggen' for a better view.

Between the bitter cold winds, no sunshine and now the Weather Peeps are predicting rains this coming week!  Oh Joy!
I go out once a week to check on them,, but still to cold to play in them..
Come on Summer,, I (we) miss you!!
Is it time Yet???

Merry Christmas 2019

Once again, I am so far behind in posting on my Blog,, and now we are almost at the end of 2019..
With it being Winter,, my trailers are fast asleep in the Barn and I can only day dream about up coming camping adventures for next Summer...
 
I did manage to make some dish towels for my lil trailers...
 
So.. until the snow melts and the trailers come out of Hybernation...
Merry Christmas...,
stay warm, healthy and happy...

Trailer Pillow....

Well, I may not be able to go Glamping... but I can still make cute lil Glamping decos!
I bought a pre-printed panel with a cute trailer design... this reminds me of back in the 1960's-70's when you could by a fabric panel of a Teddy Bear or Kitty or Holiday-Christmas tree or Easter Bunny, etc...
Just cut out, sew and stuff...and Voila' instant cute pillow....
Now I just need to decide which trailer to put this in...the Scotty or the Aristocrat... or I could buy another panel and then I would have one for each trailer!!!
Happy Trails and Wagons HO!

Flamingo Stapler...

Every Flamingo trailer needs a Flamingo stapler!
This cutie 'migrated' all the way from Florida.. to snowy Spokane...vie a thoughtful friend.

We are adding electricity to the Barn,, so during the Winter I can sneak out to my trailers, turn on the little electrical heater and snuggle in and catch up on my reading... and munch on my secrete cookie stash!
I may not get to do any Glamping in the dead of Winter,, but at least I can pretend while nestled in the barn.

Glamping Season...

It doesn't matter the season or weather,, it's always fun to go Glamping...
 we can brave the weather...
 and glamp in an unexpected late September snow... or...
stay snuggled in under shelter, with a warm mug of tea and a cookie or two...
Happy Snowtember!

Table Runner for my Aristocrat...

I had a bit of free time and decided to stitch up a little table topper/runner for my Aristocrat...
I still have lots of "Maryjane Butters" fabric by Moda... which is great, for when I get itchin' to be stitchin'.
 I still need to do some decorative top stitching.. but since the weather peeps are predicting snow by early next week,, I suspect I will have plenty of free time to sew... lol!
Notice the empty wine glass,, it may get used a lot more if we do get an early snow!!! lol!

Trip Down Memory Lane, Washington...

Came across some photos from when we lived in Spokane (2007-13)...
Wish we had not sold the old Belaire... how cute my lil Serro Scotty would have looked, being towed by  "Christine" (what we named the Belaire)...
A 1954 Chevy Belaire towing a 1963 Serro Scotty..
Ah! I do miss her....
 
 
That being said,, then we would have had to find a vintage car to match our 1971 Aristocrat... lol!
 

Camping Season is Over...

And This is Why camping season is pretty much over for us...
All day,, off and on 'mini monsoons'....
Both trailers are tucked away in the barn... and the motorhome is in the Shop for warranty work...
So no camping this weekend... bummer!

Winters Coming..

Winter's coming and so we decided to tuck away both trailers....
In the mean time I made another little glass trivet for my Aristocrat...
I used decopauge paste to adhear the fabric to the underside of this glass trivet that I bought at a local Dollar store... Then I let it dry over night,,, then sprayed on a layer of Varathane/sealer.
It now is in the trailer along with the apron from the same fabric.
I'll probably find some more fun fabrics to make more fun stuff for my trailers while they snooze through the Winter.

Sweet lil Trailer...

Since I can't get out to camp for the  next few weekends... I get to make this to remind me of how much I love Glamping..
                                                                 just a quick lil project....
I used up some of the Maryjane Butters fabric I had ... and other bits-n-pieces of fabric...
and of course.... a yoyo for the tire...
the back side is such a sweet print but is to busy to have used for the front side..
Wagons HO!

Lookie,,, 6 wee Flamingos...
 found these cuties over at Hobby Lobby... Perfect for my Aristocrat trailer...
