Trailer Planes....1961

I was rummaging through some old books,,, when I came across a 1961 copy of a  "Mechanix Illustrated" book,, and sure as all get out,,, look what I found in it...
Instructions to build your own little travel trailer....
 from the cover, the book looks like the early 1960's... but...
 from the photo on this page,,, I am guessing that this might have been a re-vised edition from a 1950's book...
look how detailed the instructions are...
Any volunteers out there in Blogland to make one? lol!

Scotty Bracelet ...

Every 'Scotty Girl' needs a Scotty Bracelet  ...
this one was 'gifted' to me by a lovely friend,, Thank you dear friend... I Luv it!

Glamping MaryJane Style.

I am a Glamping Farm girl at heart and sometimes saddle....
I love when I can get out and glamp,,, or just hang out in my trailer with a favorite magazine and a kitty or two...
I have pared down my magazine subscriptions to 2 magazine... one of which is the 'Maryjane Farm' magazine, which I have been enjoying over the years.

Now let me share with you a page from the 2016 June/July issue...
 check out the glass deco egg...
 OMG! Flamingos! ..  In the paragraph about the egg,,, Maryjane mentioned that the egg would make a perfect gift for one of her Glamping girlfriends...  yes,,, I was green or should I say pink with envy.
Now fast forward,,, I went to my P.O. Box to pick up the weeks worth of mail,,, when I found a package... hmmm, I hadn't ordered anything lately,,, then I spied the return address...
My Stars! it was from Maryjane... and guess what it was??? come on guess... give up?
Yepadoodle,,, the very same adorable deco glass egg!
Now it sits ever so lovely in my Scotty trailer (don't worry, it will be safely packed away when I am towing my trailer).
 It goes perfect with my glittered flamingo and mini salt -n- pepper shakers...
 I think I need some 'trailer shaped confetti' to sprinkle around this tray...
Oh and look what I found at the 'Dollar Tree" last week... yepadoodle, " mingo stir stix"...
To say I am 'tickled pink' is an understatement...
I love the whimsicalness of flamingos and truth be known,, my legs pretty much look like those of Flamingos too! lol!
I am so blessed to have such wonderful friends who think of me and surprise me with wonderful friendship gifts.
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you... Hugz -n- Squsiches.

Haven't Disappeared,,, Yet!

Hey my Glamping friends,,, I have not fallen off the face of the earth... just up to my eyeballs in 'Stuff'...lol!
The last time I posted was in early March and now here it is nearly the end of May... where does the time go?
Well for me, I opened a small shop up in the 'Village' of Coarsegold, CA., to keep me busy and out of Antique and Thrift shops,,, so far my lil  shop has not slowed me down from juinktiquing,,, it has however curtailed my glamping trips...  Not good! lol!

I decided to take a trip to visit my mother down in Palm Desert and then she and I flew back to Spokane to see the (her great) grand~kiddos.

In between opening my shop and mini trips I haven't been able to Glamp, but I have been spending time out in my trailer, just relaxing and day dreaming about hitting the road again with my lil trailer.

Hubby and I did a reality check and decided to (and did) sell the Silver Streak and the Shasta,,, leaving us with my Serro Scotty and the lil Viking.
In all honesty we knew it would be a very long time before we could tackle the task of re-habing the Silver Streak and Shasta,,, so we let them go to new homes and owners who wanted them and had the time for them.
Actually now that we are down to 2 trailers it is really quit freeing... so it is a Good Thing.

I have been shopping for new~old glamping stuff...when do I not? lol!
I peruse the various vintage trailer sites on 'facebook' as well as 'pintrest' for ideas...
I still attend lunch/dinner get to-gathers with the local 'Sisters on the Fly' sisters up here and am collecting (more) stuff for my SOTF camping trip in late summer at the Hearst Ranch in Central California.

And,,, OMG! I am actually thinking of re-doing my Scotty again... that is the fun thing about our trailers,,, like Barbie dolls, we can change their 'outfits' as often as we want... lol!

Well,,, time to go on 'pintrest' and see what cute trailer deco ideas are there...after all,,, summer is just around the corner and so is Glamping season...
Happy Trails!
by the way,,, I am not the only one who likes to relax in the Serro Scotty!
mama and keekee love napping in my trailer.

We are all 'Sisters on the Fly' and wanted to get in one last weekend of camping before we tucked our trailers in for the Winter.
And what better way and time then the first weekend of December,,, Craft Bazars, community festivities, shopping, food and friendship...
 Left to right: Barbara, Sharon, Kathleen, Dianne, Claire, Myself, Deni and Lind(not in pic.)

 I only put a few bits of decorations up in the inside of my trailer....

Another One...

As if I don't have enough "UFO's".... (un finished objects-'projects')....
and here I am thinking I need to head to my sewing room and make one of these...
I spotted this over on the Maryjane Farm forum... what a cute idea... and to make it fast and easy peasy,,, I will make a simple square pot holder, and machine applique the trailer image onto the fabric... as for the towel.. also easy peasy... just add the ruffle, and then use those 'iron-on' type crayons to draw the fork/spoon image... then iron to heat set it.
I see Christmas gifts in the making for my trailer gal pals... if I can get past my ever growing stack of UFO's that are sitting on my sewing table! lol!

Welcome First Day of Autumn..

So,,, today is the 1st day of Autumn... the days of Glamping are winding down,,,, and the days of sitting by the fire pit with my Honey-bear, enjoying a mug of  Gluhwein (warmed spiced red wine) is starting...
Though I am sad that my days of playing outside in the garden are coming to an end,,, I am looking forward to cozying up by the fire and getting caught up on some of my sewing projects...
Out of shear silliness and something I saw in the Country Living magazine... I just had to make one for myself....
 Country Living Magazine's version....
 my version..... (scrap piece of fire wood and left over paint)
can you tell it's the 1st day of Fall?
 I finished up the stitching portion of my  quilted Glamping pillow....
Now to sit down and start quilting... or I could put it off till the weekend and in stead, go sit outside with my Honey-bear and enjoy our 1st Autumn evening....  hmmmmm.....

Life in a Nut Shell...

Sometimes my life feels like living in a Nut Shell... goodness knows,, I am a bit Nuts at times! lol!
But the best part is, I am not alone... my partner in crime, aka-husband shares that Nut Shell with me...

For example,,, I decided to be a vendor in our local Labor Day weekend Peddlers Faire... a 4 day event where you can try to sell your 'stuff'. and turn around and buy someone else stuff! lol!
 Joy of joys, I sold stuff and ended up with $415 cash in my pocket...

BUT...
on the last day, a guy approached hubby and I and told us he had an old Shasta out in his field that he would like to get rid of,, (here is where the $400 comes in)... I said Yes!  Hubby gave me that... "Oh No you don't " look,,,, long story short...
Look what followed us home,,, after we bought her a new set of tires...
1963 Shasta SCS

 hubby getting ready to jack her up and remove the rims and tires...
she even has her ear-Wings....
 here is the layout.... rear kitchen and a self contained shower and potty. Ours has a short table between the twin beds.
 She made it home to be lovingly fussed over.... and cleaned up.
 The outside of the oven/stove is grey and as you can see, the inside looks to never have been used other then to catch 52 years of dirt/dust.
 I love the original lights.
 this one is over the table.
 Love the iconic "S", Shasta's trademark.
I was told the original colors for this model and year was grey and pink... and the counter looks to be either a pale blue or very light mint green...
We chipped away some exterior paint and found what also looks to be either a very pale blue or uber light mint,,, and you can see the (barely) image of the "V" in front and the "Z" stripes down the sides...
Oh the fun we will have bringing her back to life... For the most part she needs elbow grease, sanding and varnish, new cushions & curtains....
We only found one issue of concern and that was in the bottom corner behind the potty... which will probably have to get into and put new wood...
If the plumbing and electrical get to complicated we'll take her to the RV shop to be repaired,,, but for now it's time to clean her out, and make our (by importance) "To-Do" list for repairs...
I will try to remember to post pics along the way....
Just what we need! another trailer! lol!
Silver Streak 1965
Serro Scotty 1963
Viking Cub Cruiser 1949
Shasta 16SCS  1963...
What next? lol!
