Home Stretch?

Roger says he feels like things are finally coming together on the trailer and that he feels like the end is in sight. I know he's out of his mind, because I can make a list a mile long of stuff that still needs to be done. But, it is starting to look like my dream space, so I can't complain!
The reading nook is looking amazing! It's all walled-in, trimmed and ready to be painted. 

The opposite end of the trailer is nearly done. We decided to paint all of the trim white, rather than a color. It makes the space look bigger, and I'll add splashes of colors when I do the window coverings. At this point, I'm going to do valances, rather than full curtains, because I want to use those window ledges as display space.
Next, Roger wants to focus on building the work table that will fit under the front window. I'm asking for a plain wooden table top. Something smooth, clean and easy to clean up. Something I can add my own character to.
Not sure how much work is going to get done on the trailer for the next few weeks. We will be participating in three shows in October, so I am headed in to preparation mode for those. Lots of things to clean, tag and pack. Busy! Busy!

A few weeks ago, I was totally surprised to find out I had won a giveaway over at Andromeda Vintage! Let me tell you that Melissa over there knows how to put together a vintage goodie box! I was blown away by all the awesome loot I got!

Let's see if I can list it all! Cross stitched apron, potato chip bag, Bingo card, tea canister, pyrex fridgie, tennis playing santas, yellow melmac cream and sugar, knee hugger elf, thumbtacks made from vintage buttons, salt and pepper shakers, fans, notecards! That's a lot of stuff to fit in a flat rate priority mail box!

Keep cool, and be gay! The handle on this fan is so bright and the Japanese images are fantastic.

These two may be my favorite things from the entire package. A couple of cute little bell pepper headed salt and pepper shakers. Cute faces, and I really like bell peppers! Always have!

An Early American fridgie in perfect condition. I love that it has a cat on it. This will find a home in the craft trailer storing this and that.

I don't yet know what I'm going to do with it, but I love this unused vintage potato chip bag. I'll have to figure out a way to use it in the trailer. The colors are just perfect!

Go check out Andromeda Vintage! Seriously, she finds some of the best stuff!
