I thought I'd pop in some pics of the very minor changes I've made to the camper. I borrowed Chris K.'s idea of resurfacing appliances with the faux tin panels, and used one on my little camper fridge. It looks okay, but will be prettier once all the cabinets are painted cream... Also, I gave a nod to Cath Kidston with my polka dotted and enamelled accessories. Slip covers for the ugly cushions will be addressed this year, but I likely won't get around to the painting until fall or spring.
I have to say, our camper is worth its weight in gold. We love getting up, having our tea and breakfast while listening to the radio. I read the newpaper, and revel in the lack of WORK associated with camping this way. I make up our beds, toss the dirty clothes in our hamper, and Sophie dries the dishes (feeling very useful all the while), while the boys go off to the pool or playground with their cousins. We truly feel we are making memories...simple, but sweet all the same. We look forward to exploring new places in an affordable way. Which, of course, leaves more $$$ for popping into shops to purchase "souvenirs"..."
***By the way, I wanted to show you two little dolls I picked up at our local fleamarket a couple of years ago. I bought them from a lady in her eighties who was selling off all of her belongings, as she was going to live with her daughter. Both dolls appear to have been handmade, and I would love to know if they have any value (besides what they mean to me...I love them). If anyone knows anything about dolls of this nature, let me know. The fisherman's clothing is removable and his coat and sou'wester are made of oilcloth. They are two of my fleamarket treasures...
