Summer almost gone

However it was quite a lovely day here in Fife
I did pop out to the caravan to take some more pictures .....

retro door ribbon curtain .....

paper flowers to hide a little hole......


more little changes.........

before .......remember this.......


and after.........

I used hologram fablon on the worktop


this is what it looks like underneath now .............

 The cooker lid

and inside the cupboards............



I used a roll of water resistant tile effect wallpaper which was given to me by a fellow camper in the family.....he purchased two of them at a car boot sale for £1!.....no good to him.....not his colour..........perfect for our little Monza :)


This little pull out rack is for wine, but the bottles are too tall for it, so I will need to spend a little time altering it, for now it holds our 3 lanterns nicely.


our colourful selection of dishes.....


the wardrobe and privicy curtain, this gives us a little separate bedroom at night


blossom fairy lights fixed in place.........


 and the back fold down table, which I decided to decoupage with some origami papers and a few coats of varnish.


Had to show you this.....she loves to come out and site here while I potter about fixing things

shes looking at some caravan books :)


We did manage to get away in our little Monza for a couple of long weekend breaks.
with so much unexpected work to be done on the van we were lucky to get away in it at all!
Here she is with our new lightweight awning attached, its a porch awning, but quite big and almost covers the whole side of our little Monza




and doubles our space ......


breafast with a little singing thrown in .......


and a party....... Happy Birthday Harry!.......Chocolate cake for all :)


you can see my little kitchen set up in the background......we dont cook in the van we had this foldaway kitchen, which holds everything we need to cook and store our gas camping stove, electric frying pan, pots & kettle. There is also a larder for storing food items that dont need refridgeration.


Yes it did rain but look at those two wonderful rainbows which were so bright and a joy to see!

So we look forward to many more happy days in our little van

That is the cutest little set up I have ever seen! You did a fantastic job on it, I'd be wanting to go all over just so I could use it. It is so fresh and clean looking. And your add on tent area really makes for a nice extra space. Well done!

Wowww so glad you got it done and enjoyed a couple of weekends away. And it was so worth all that effort! Your little one looks so happy there.. and it'll be wonderful to just be able to 'take off' next year! Well done you! A pat on the back is well deserved!

Were those rainbows the finishing touch to something magical or what??? Awesome! Charlotte looks like a little fairy sitting there at the table. I love the orgami papers on the table, and the artistic flower arrangement covering the hole on the ceiling is very clever and pretty! The caravan is coming along quite nicely! Good job!
