The Scotty is coming along...

getting ready for paint...
Coppertone be gone.......
Well, I finished painting, 2 coats, of Country White on the interior walls & ceiling. Saturday I will be painting the cabinet doors & drawer fronts in a turquoise...Gary painted the Coppertone icebox & stove in a turquoise (Blue ocean breeze by Krylon) with black looks awesome!
I'll post pictures this weekend after we re-install the stove & ice box.
The new electrical has been installed so we need to install the wall lights next.
Gary got the running lights all hooked up and working,,,That's my man!
Everyday we make a little progress and the Scotty should be ready in 2 weeks!

Serro Scotty & Me....

Am I having fun yet filling nail & screw holes with wood putty???...
The new & improved screen door Gary built for the trailer
This was the origional paint scheme in the Scotty. Somewhere along the way someone painted the whole interior powder blue... As much as I would like to re-create the origional paint, I think I will stick with a clean cream color allowing me the versatility of changing the interior decorations with out having to be locked into a limited paint color.

Ok, what is it about the Hub's & me?...that we always have to disassemble things???? Aacckk!
I have less then 24 days to be ready for my Sisters on the Fly camping trip & here we go again, tearing apart the 2nd it to much coffee or just a natural curiosity or do we just love to 'stress ourselves out',,,lol!
Anyhow, here we go again, creating more work when we only have a small time frame to get the Scotty ready.... Do feel free to put on your 'grubbies' & come help! lol!

Bringing the Scotty Home...

Gary checking the trailer along the way.
Ok, so here is a picture of us bringing our little Serro Scotty home last week.
We have made several "Home Desperate"(Depot) runs and today was no we brought home flooring, window & door screen fabric, plexi glass, nuts, boltz, paint, curtain rods & other 'stuff'' to work on our little trailer.
My "Mother's Day" gift will be working all day on Mother's Day on the trailer! lol!
After all I only have 26 days to get the trailer ready for my first outting of the year with some of my 'Sisters on the Fly' girlfriends.

Our Newest Addition....

1963 Serro Scotty
Our newest trailer family member.

'Gracie's Victorian Rose' now has a little sister....

Ok, for those of you who know us, know that we are avid collectors,,,,and I do mean avid! From mixers and resin grapes to kitties...heeheehee....
While Gracie~girl is truly a labor of love and is moving along quite well in her restorations, she is still a work in progress...but my first Sisters on the Fly outing is less then 4 weeks away and she will barely be ready so we decided that since we were planning on a 2nd trailer, now would be as good a time as any to find one,,,and find one we did!
Our new baby is a 1963 Serro Scotty Sportsman 15' trailer. The body is in really good shape considering her age and just needs a good coat of interior paint, new cushions, faucet, door and flooring. Oh and the best has a small closet that works perfect for a "Scotty Potty" lol!
So while I am cleaning, painting and sewing curtains & cushion covers like a mad women, Gary will be repairing the front door, lights and a window.
My next trip will be to the Camping supply store to buy a portable potty....hmmm wonder if Sears still carries them!
We will be bringing her home in a few days, by then we should be able to find the perfect name for her.
Gary has already said he wants one more trailer, one from the 1940's then we will have a 40's, 50's & 60's collection going...see I told you we are avid collectors... then the only dilemma will be which trailer to use on an outing! lol!
