Back Home

Wow!  I love how some of you think!  You had me traveling all over the place.  I can only WISH I was in Hawaii.

No, we were in our beloved Payson.  Twenty to 30 degrees cooler there than Phoenix.

Here are a few pics....


Wednesday evening, my hubby said, oh, by the way, I have a surprise for you in the camper.  I had seen this darling tin VW at HL, but it wasn't on sale.....he went back (on his own ladies!!) and got it for me...(and by then, it was on sale!)


We worked on the kitchen area.  It is FAR from perfect....but, we did the best we could.  Remember, our intent was not to strip it to the bare bones.  Hubby had to improvise for the back counter....so I put cup hooks.  The fabric on top of the curtains matches the cushions, but it hides his repair job to where he took out air conditioner.  We tried to think of a lot of ways to make it look good.  I came up with this, and it does do the trick!  (Notice, still No pompoms on shades.....I tell you,...don't bank your money.. invest in POMS, cuz obviously, they are valuable!!!)


We took out the old propone light....and had to hide the hole.  I found the Follow Your Heart sign at HL and it was the colors and I LOVE the saying!



I know, really, desperate for a shot....but I love my new little orange cutting board!


And how many of you can say you have an orange doggie butt?  (it is for his leash!)


there is where my VW sign is...(oooh....bad grammar there!!)


Our trailer was quite the talk, and even had a man come and want to take pictures.



Oh, so trailer-y!!  But the lights are just toooo cute!


See my sweet little shade in the window?


My hubby would sit out there till really late....just relaxing (well, here he looks like he is thinking about something he wants to do...I KNOW that look!).



Oh, and look....I found a peace charm for my teddy bear!!


When you go to a small town...(although Payson is getting bigger! :(  ....)  you have to hit the area diners.


We went to the Beeline Cafe and let me tell you, there breakfast was delicious!


When we were driving around we saw a guini hen...don't know what that is...but it was just on one of the streets....


Ok....Vee, you will see this shot again....this is a Notecard waiting to happen!!!


Looking out our back window.....


Oh, you HAVE to have Yard art....you know that right???  I am a novice!...one day, I will have to take pics of all the different camper yard art!!

Well, we are home again.  I am going to take a nappy pooh!  But otherwise....ONE HAPPY CAMPER!!

So, it wasn't Hawaii, it was better! The little happy camper is coming along and oh so cute.
What color pom poms are you looking for? I will keep my eye's open for you and see if there is any around this area.

Hi Ceekay,
Was so glad to hear from you again. It has been a long time, and I thoroughly enjoyed your post. Your little camper is so cool. (I still have a little troube using the term cool. Neat is the term of my generation.) LOL
Keep on blogging until you decide it's time to quit. Now I know you needed that advice.
Hugs,
Charlotte

Linda said...

I LOVE it!!! Y'all did a great job on the camper! No one would know your pretty touches HID something!!! Next week I'm going out to spruce up OUR RV - to get it ready for hosting MiMi Camp 2013. I missed having it last year since I was out of town in an RV park - for 7 months!
