Having an Island Glamper Christmas

I finally got around to gathering up all the driftwood I’ve been collecting for well-over two years now, and built a Christmas tree for our caravan Glamping home. Up until yesterday, my remnants of Mother Ocean had been mere decoration in my garden beds…

D I Y Pull-out Sofa Sleeper in Glamper RV

Pull Out Sofa Sleeper in Our Glamper Caravan Home — Part I   We’re hoping the third time is a charm, because that’s how many times Hubby has rebuilt this sofa sleeper/daybed in the caravan home we so lovingly refer to as Mermaid Mansion.  Unseen in these photos, there is a window seat on the opposite wall,…

Dining Room – Before & After

It’s been less than a year-and-a-half since we found our retro-vintage travel trailer; gutted out and full of musty…dirty carpet.  Ever since the day we finally got her home (see ‘A Place to Call Home’ in a previous blog post), we’ve been hard-at-it to make her livable…while actually living in her.  Anyone who’s ever remodeled an old RV…

New Dining Room in Caravan RV Trailer Part IV

–DINING BOOTH & NEW PANTRY Project:  Part IV– It’s raining today, so looks like we’ll have to wait til another day to continue with the construction of our new pantry in our ‘once gutted out’ vintage Caravan RV trailer.  –The place we’ve called home for a year-and-a-half now.

Sewing a Sea Life Quilt for Baby

Perma-Glamping has its advantages at times.  –Like when I went to design a new Sea Life quilt for Baby.  If we had been on the road, like most Glampers, I doubt I could have made the time to design & sew a special blanket for my youngest, like I did for my oldest two…back when…

New Window in Retro Caravan RV — BEFORE & AFTER

It’s been a LONG Long….long time coming: finding a window to fit the gaping hole-of-a-mess that we’ve been living with for over a year! We were there just thirty minutes before they closed the doors at the Galveston Historical Foundation’s Architectural Warehouse. Lucky for us, too! If we hadn’t gone that day…at the last minute,…

Glam-Up Your Camper with Feathers

It arrived the day-before-yesterday, and I couldn’t be happier! The feather trim I ordered to finish my caravan kitchen curtains–exquisite in several shades of Caribbean turquoise and earthy jade green–is just the right embellishment I needed to Glam up my kitchen to Island Glamping perfection. I love it! And while many think it was expensive,…

Island Caravan Kitchen Garden — Tomatoes

Tomatoes EVERYWHERE!!!   And it’s official — they are now taller than me!  I guess that’s not very tall to some folks, but to us ‘little people’, it’s a very BIG Deal.  :  )  I just had to share my lovely ‘toms’, since it’s been quite a few years since I had much luck with growing…
