31 DAYS: DAY 20, THE VINTAGE CAMPER IN THE BACK YARD MAKES ME SMILE

 
What can I say?  We are really into the renovating thing.  A couple of years ago we worked on the beauty below.   I named her Carried Away and designed a great graphic for the side which obviously never got put on.  It probably never will now that she is parked in Virginia, and my awesome sign company is here in Tennessee.

Some of you may remember that when my husband found her, she looked a bit, what should I say, rough?  We are visionaries.  Yes, we certainly are.

I have blogged about the complete renovation of the camper already, so you can read about it here if you would like.  You'll have to scroll to the bottom to read about the process in order.  Or, if you are talented like I am, you can just read it backwards and let your mind do the mental gymnastics of putting it in order.

We brought the camper to the cabin because I love her so very much and did not want to abandon her for a cabin.  I also don't see camping in my near future since now I have a cabin in the woods to stay in--with a bathroom.  
 
So Carried Away is like the guest cottage to our cabin.  Three guests have stayed in her so far.  She has a feather mattress and a feather duvet, and sleeping there is all kinds of yummy.  She smells good, too!  I just love knowing she is with us on the trail; and from time to time, I open her up for tours as well.

I took a "respite" from all that is going on in my life right now and thoroughly enjoyed reading days 1-20 in one sitting. Your cabin is enchanting and your creativity and energy are amazing. Looking forward to reading days 21-31!

I was just thinking about her the other day.

Nice spot. That's where I'll sleep, k?
