I HAD A "GYPSY" DREAM...

I HAD A "GYPSY" DREAM...


For six years SHE sat on our property sad, lonely, and tired!

She is my 1965 Cardinal Lovebird vintage "TIN GYPSY"!!! 

 
She had such great bones...but needed some major LOVE, elbow grease, and TLC!



Now the real kick here and sentimentality is, she was born the same year I was!!!

GYPSY WANDERLUST SOUL MATES...YEAH I THINK SO!

She called to me and asked for a FACE LIFT! She had waited oh too long...




OH-MY-G-Y-P-S-Y!!!!!

SHE was away for much too long...

but the perfect shade of lipstick is worth the wait!!!


The JOY I feel from just staring at her in the driveway is indescribable...I can't imagine the euphoria of taking her on the highways and byways!!!

She will be my "SHOW PONY", travel companion, partner-in-crime, glamper, highway hotel, and all around "TIN GYPSY" 

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE HER to BITS!!!


Keep close as "TIN GYPSY" continues her restoration "journey". 

As we progress with her up do, I will continue to share her evolution! 

Gypsy Sisters...please share your vintage trailer and glamping adventures that you have had or may DREAM about!!!

HAPPY GYPSY TRAILS!!!

XOXO

Wouw ... what a beauty.

Can´t wait to see her inside.

It´s funny. At that time I always give my new vintage trailer a new makeup. Look here for it

What a little beauty she is! I have a 1964 Shasta myself and these lil trailers are so easy to fall in love with!

Sweet dreams....
