Lost in the 60’s

wenatchee 040

 

This trailer is so apply named and it’s really fits this post, as you will see many vintage trailers from that era.

Each trailer is so unique.  It’s so much fun to see what each Sister creates.

Isn’t this so homey and inviting!  Don’t you just want to snuggle up and read a book in this bed?

Several of the gals have figured out a new way to make awnings so they don’t blow down in the breezes.  They are connected to the trailers and the poles fit into items with concrete, with removable poles.  Thus they are weighted down and thus hard to knock down.  I love the use of the cowgirl boots!

I particularly love these old wheels and would love to have one for my trailer.

Trip to Wenatchee

I got to spend some time in Wenatchee, WA. this last weekend and there were almost 40 Sisters on the Fly, with the same idea. 

This is the same exact trailer as mine, same year, 1969, Shasta 1400.

Can you believe how gorgeous this is?

She’s Back

ms d 001

 

Yep, she’s finally home after spending time at the trailer hospital.

The repairman did wonderful job with the dents…..now for some paint touchups.  He replaced all the dry rotted wood around the bottom of the trailer, as well, as the back corners, inside and out.

The best part…the door.  It doesn’t look any different but it is now solid and closes so nicely.  And after all that work, the lock still works fine…..yay!

 

 ms d 004

 

The door was so dry rotted that it flapped as I drove down the road…not good.  Yes, that’s new diamond plate on the front.  ‘Driving Ms. Daisy had been patched over the years with several different kinds of siding and was in bad shape.  This looks much better and will keep the rocks from chipping. 

I am heading out this morning for Wenatchee, Wa. to spend the weekend with some Sisters on the Fly and visit with my Grand Daughter and my Great Grandson, Gunner, who just turned two.  It will be so fun to have my ‘baby’ back….and to see the little one. 

Have a great weekend and check in next week, as it’s time for Karen’s Kamp, again.  You’ll have to check out all the vintage trailers visiting my place here in Cheney, WA.

Sometimes Old is Better

blender 003

 

So what’s with the old blender?  I went thrifting yesterday with a good friend, Sharon, and I found this old blender almost exactly like my Mom’s….yes, she still uses it.  Whenever I visit (Seattle) I use it….and it is so quiet and fast…I love it.  (I might have snagged it but she’s not ready to part with it.)  And it appears to have never been used! 

It’s late 60’s early 70’s so it should run for many more years.

 This is a different model but I am really looking forward to using this in my trailer.  I hated to take my more modern one as it would wake up the whole forest!  For $10 it can make my smoothie anytime day or night and not wake anyone.

Hope you are having a wonderful summer.  Be sure and grab your swim suit and head to the lake…..the days are getting shorter, already!
