The List: Checkin' It Twice

I finished work  the other evening and walked out the door
and saw this in the parking lot! I was so excited! I have always wanted one of these
sweet little campers... I instantly loved it. The color is perfectly sweet and then I saw the For Sale sign
in the window... and just for a moment,
thought....
Merry Christmas to ME!
I love looking at those other camper gals with their trailers all fixed up and adorable inside.
I think I would even pick up fishing as a hobby just to hang with
Sisters on the Fly!
Of course, it would have to be hook-less fishing for me!
The first time I ever casted I caught a very large trout...
I handed off my pole immediately.
No way was I going to touch that!
I just don't have what it takes.
But camping, yes! Can you imagine sleeping with a big down comforter in here?


Oh well, this is what dreams are made of.
This is the camper that got away. Maybe next time.
Right now I have other "fish to fry" so to speak...
 
although I did not get a photo of the top , this is about to be checked off my list.
I will be putting the binding on this secret project this weekend.

I will be back with this one next...
almost finished right now.
I'm getting my pencil ready to start checking things off my list!

I just saw these photos in my saved photo file...
see I told you have have been dreaming of having one of these...


 How cute is this?
I think that this was made into a traveling cupcake business.
Sweet!

That is a perfectly adorable little camper - I love those! And you should have gotten it as a gift to yourself. You could have just fixed it all up and put it in your back yard as your "woman cave"! LOL!!! Seriously, I'd do that if I could!

Looking forward to seeing a photo of your secret project!

XOXO,

Cyndi

darling! I'm coveting the neighbor's trailer, but it's certainly not that cute!

Oh I am so with you on this. We have been looking for a caravan for a few months now but good ones are hard to come by in France. Can't wait until we get one and can wander around this beautiful country as and when we please. Hugs Linda

It's adorable but camping is so not for me. I tried it once. That was enough. Can't wait to see your secret project!

Sinta, I have my This and that quilt top finished. Could I send it to you in an email? Thanks.

Stephanie said...

I'm not a camper but that is a cutie! I do love that quilt pattern though.

The camper is very sweet and retro - reminds me of childhood holidays.

Adorable camper! I don't know what I would do with one of those (or where I would park it), but it's awfully cute.

Congratulations on your near finish! Hopefully you can share the secret project soon!
