Fabric Dilema

Over the weekend, I went around looking at fabric...for cushion covers and curtains.  I want something retro looking in red, pale yellow and black.  Looks like I'm going to have change my "retro" idea as I can't find any material that's even close to what I want.

I haven't gone to any stores yet to look at pre-made curtains/valances, but I think that may be the way we'll have to go.

As far as replacing the cushions...I found large rectangular foam pieces at JoAnn Fabrics, but read somewhere about using futon cushions.  Any thoughts or ideas out there on this?

On Her Way!

She's finally on her way home...wish I could be there to help!

She got a bath on the way home.  I think she looks great!

What's in a Name?

It seems all vintage trailers have names so I am wondering what we should call our's?  I suppose she'll tell us her name in time.

But why do they all have girl names?  Is it because they protect us and keep us safe like a "Mom"?  Dads do the same thing!  Is it because they tend to have cute curtains and attractive yet cozy color schemed interiors?

Maybe our's will declare to us that she's really a Bob or a Harry!

And So The Adventure Begins...

She's still up in Cook Forest, but may be coming home to Bethel Park tonight.  Unsure of the year yet...maybe '68?  Will try to find out from the VIN number.

We are excited at the thought of fixing her up...new cushions, new curtains, painting the cabinets, new table, etc.  It'll be hard for me still being in Miami and not being able to do much work on her yet.  Hopefully after the wedding (November 11th!), once I get moved up there, I can really get into it.  She's going to be used for camping, a playhouse for Aidan and a damn cute "guest cottage".

Just give us some time...more pictures to come in a couple weeks!
