Late to the party


Once again it seems I'm a little late in jumping on the band wagon of a fad. Vintage caravans. Why didn't someone tell me just how awesomely cute they are? I can't stop thinking about them!
Last week when driving to work there was a little vintage caravan on the side of the road with a great big "for sale" sign on it. I was smitten. For several days I drove past, usually heading to or coming from work, with no real time to stop and take a proper look. Now it's gone. sigh.


How I wish now I had pulled over to take a closer look. I've been trying ever since to get Mr Vintage to entertain the idea of buying a little caravan. He has some very boring valid points about how we own a boat that just sits there and blah blah blah. But it can't stop a girl from dreaming right?

i love vintage caravans -outside only. On this inside I am a thoroughly modern girl and need all the lux fittings! Hence, as you may have guessed, I don't do much caravanning!

Have been seeing more older/vintage travel trailers (as we call them) on the highways here, too. Some are in rough shape and others have fixed up so cute.

I DID stop Selina.. Her name was "Ruby" and she was up here on holiday, while her owners were freezing down in Melbourne. She was a cool $15,000. I loved her stain glass windows. She was so darn cute.
