Scotty Tea Set

Look what my daughter found for me at Target today! OMG! Is this cute or what! It will look so cute in my 1963 Serro Scotty trailer....
hmmm, I am thinking I need another vintage trailer to transfer my shabby/retro/ pink & blue deco to and then re-do the Scotty in black/red/white & maybe a splash of yellow just for kicks! lol!
Hmmm, guess I had better start baking some cookies in hopes to bribe my hubby into going along with my hair-brained idea! lol!

Lots of Pillows

I love using pillows as a source of decorating...Cute, Colorful and Light Weight. The cowgirl pillow is from scraps left from an apron project and an old sheet. I found cute silver metal cowgirl hat, and cowgirl boot buttons to embellish the pillow.
The large pillow, white with pink roses is a pillow sham that I found at the Thrift and for only 99cents.
The Pink and brown pillow is a sweet pillow that I won in a blog giveaway by "Dark Horse Farm Designs." www.darkhorsefarmdesigns.com
The pillow case, (pink & black) I stitched up from fabric that a sweet friend form the MaryJane Farm forum sent me as a gift.
Hmmm, I am thinking I just might have to go down to my sewing room, dig through my scraps and stitch up another pillow... after all, I have a little room left on the bed for another pillow or two! lol!

More Scotty Decorating Fun

Little by little things are getting done on the Scotty..yaya, I know...we still need to work on the Aljo...but I have a trip in a few days so I need to get things done on the Scotty. Today's project was to paint the wheels. Now Hubby is on the internet searching for 10" Baby Moons to cover the wheels. But for now the centers will be blue & black.
Hubby had to fight a bit to get the tires off and on...but he did & he didn't even use any "experaltives deleatives" ! lolo!

I found this lil shelf for 99cents at the Goodwill store, bought it, brought it home, painted it, added (glued) lace to the front, glued on the flower & ladybug and hubby attached it to the wall for me to display my lil purfume bottles & what nots.
As for this silly tin sign, I found it at T.J. Maxx for $4.99...perfect to stick my magnets on.
It is on the closet door where my Scotty Potty hidden.

Ok, I still have some more projects to finish up and just 11 days before the next Glamping.

Caravans, Campfires & Tales from the Road

Sister #444 Juli's lil "Sweet Sister" ...is this cute or what!?!...She even used a vintage ironing board as a hostess table.
Yep, when it comes to decorating our trailers both inside and out...we go over the top and then some! lol! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Printed by permission from Irene Rawlings...

What’s stronger than campfire coffee?
It’s the bond shared by Sisters on the Fly, a group of nearly 1,500 women
ranging in age from 25 to more than 90. They share many things: flyfishing,
playing poker for pennies, cooking food in cast iron (heavy, but you
don’t have to go to the gym quite so often), and telling tall tales around the
campfire. Their one-of-a-kind vintage trailers have iconic names such as
Sister Sioux, Rhinestone Cowgirl, and Calamity Jane and Miss Montana.
In Sisters on the Fly: Caravans, Campfires, and Tales from the Road
(Andrews McMeel Publishing, LLC, $14.99, May 2010),
Irene Rawlings celebrates the camaraderie and travels of this remarkable group of women who live by the motto “We have more fun than anyone!”
Started by two real-life sisters in 1999, Sisters on the Fly have been finding (sometimes for as little as $50 in a farmer’s field), restoring, and traveling in uniquely decorated “homes on the range” (or mountain, valley, desert, or beach) that transport them from adventure to adventure.

Sisters on the Fly features tales from the open road, cowgirl crafts, chic trailer d├ęcor, recipes passed down from Grandma, and plenty of hints and tips to help transform a vintage trailer from “trashed to treasured.” If you can’t take to the road, you’ll still find plenty of ways to appreciate the creative journeying of this endearing and energetic group of women.
For those women who hear adventure calling, additional information about Sisters on the
Fly—how to join, how to buy a trailer, and a list of upcoming cowgirl caravan trips—can
be found at http://www.sistersonthefly.com/.

Sisters inspire one another to step outside their busy roll of mother, daughter, grandmother,businesswoman,teacher,nurse, civil engineer or federal judge, and devote a little time to the true cowgirl within.

The SOTF cowgirl fixes flat tires, cooks meals that would make John Wayne weak in the knees, traveles and explores with fierce independence and all the while, listens, shares, laughsand loves.
Irene Rawlings not only wears a Cowgirl~Sister on the Fly hat but she also wears the hats of an author, editor, curator, and art reviewer. She hosts an awardwinning
radio show syndicated throughout the Rocky Mountain West, and is the author of two
other books: "Portable Houses" and "The Clothesline".

I can hardly wait for my copy to arrive....oh & for you Colorado readers, Irene will be having a book signing in a few weeks. Check her out on Face Book to get the particulars of when & where.

Sisters on the Fly Book...

Ok, I can hardly contain myself for the release of Irene Rawlings book about Sisters in the Fly.
I bugged her relentlessly to let me have a couple of pictures from her book to post on my blog.
Thank you Irene, your a doll....
She actually sent me a bunch of pictures...but then I thought if I post them all that would take away from the surprise & glee you'd get from actually seeing & reading the book.

This is the front cover of the book and yep that's Maurrie on the left & Becky on the rt.
Here is sweet "Chantilly Lace" owned by our own sweet Denise, lil sis#760...
Her vintage awning came from England.
Denise, myself & a handful of other gals all went camping down in Prosser, WA. recently,,, well, camping, junktiquing, eating & dancing that is...lol!
To bad we don't know how to have fun! lolol!

Prosser, Washington. Apr.2010

Wahoo, YEEHAW & Wagons HO!
A hand full of us, Prosser Farm Gals, Sisters on the Fly and Spokane Past Blessings gal pals converged on the Yakima river at Karen Benton's property for a 3 day camping, shopping and Barn Dance weekend. What fun we all had.....
Here are a few of the trailers. We normally would decorate our spots outside our trailers but the winds were blowing to strong so we had to settle for just making our sweet trailers cute on the inside.
This is just part of Rene's cute Aladdin trailer all dolled up in a Roy & Dale Rogers theme.
Heather's trailer, "4CHIX Only", a 1947 Silver lark. We met up in the Starbucks parking lot in Cheney WA. to caravan to Prosser.
And of course, my lil Scotty aka 'The Gnome Home'... I listened to non stop Dean Martin music on the trip to Prosser....and am still singing Dino tunes! lol!
