April update

No April fools - I have been working on the camper. (ummm on March 17th, I became the owner of my 2nd vintage camper - 1961 Fan. I will post in a few days about it with pictures) I still have my to do list but it is coming along. Still trying to work on the outside between weather changes. It is looking so cute inside !!! I have all the curtains done - the things hanging at the top of the rod are what I am using for tie backs - just wrapping the vine around it - done, easy peasy. Made a mini chandelier light fixture using vintage metal embroidery hoop and glass pieces. Have to get more done before April 30th, going on a STOF (sisters on the Fly)campout at Tippicanoe State Park. Can't wait for the season opener of camping !

I actually made these back in October 2011. I really love the way they turned out. I have had the pillow forms for awhile, so it was good to use some of my stash. I used some vintage materials - a dollie, a flour bag, buttons. I bought two other pillows that are a little bigger that I didn't take a picture of. So there will be three pillows on each side of the camper.

Interior Project

Since I can't work on the outside of the camper with the cold weather, I can work on some interior projects. I love collecting vintage jewelry and have lots of it. So I finally used some of it in this project. I am so happy with how it turned out. I had bought the oval frame at an estate sale last year. It was missing some trim, but I knew I could use it for something. So I painted it cream and used some burnt amber to add some depth. I think I still may sand the edges a bit. I put some pink fabric on some chipboard as the backbone and begin gluing away. I used hot glue, thinking it would adhere better to the fabric, but also to take a part at a later date. Now just to find the perfect spot in the camper for it. I am thinking the back wall so you can see it when you look into the camper.
