I am finally getting around to posting pictures
of my little camper.
I named her Lisa Patricia Layton.
She is a 1964 Layton.
The top 2 names in 1964 were Lisa and Patricia,
hence her name.
She is never leaving the yard.
She is just a playhouse of sorts
for my own enjoyment.
She is pretty sweet for $150.
I got a good deal.
I got a good deal.
I did the bare minimum to her.
A little paint and a lot of scrubbing.
I wanted to retain her "vintage bones".
The original ticking mattress was super cute,
but too mousey to save.
I have a twin air mattress there now.
As soon as someone in the family
is pitching a double mattress,
I am begging for their castoff.
The bread box was in it.
I think it is cute.
I also love the turquoise wheel well.
The turquoise thing above the curtains is a cot
made out of canvas that rolls across and hooks
for a twin bed.
The table becomes a bed too.
Aubrie made me some origami cats to decorate with.
Annie made the curtains out of some fabric I bought.
Everything else I already had in tubs in storage.
I told you, I am a collector.
When I closed my shop I kept some things I still loved.
Thank God for barns.
The north side of the back yard looks like this.
The little table is a checkers table
from the front of a store
where old men used to play.
It has the name Jane scratched in it.
I knew it had to be mine.
Fire pit and seating .
The kids have a sand pile on the side of the playhouse
where the little chairs are .
I want it to eventually feel like a campground.
I have to under plant some yews.
We have some tree trimming to do first.
Too much rain and farming seem to interfere.
Dern bills, I guess farming and baling
will have to take precedence
over my landscaping plans.
I will post the playhouse soon.
Uploading pictures takes sooo long.
I have a busy weekend and an adventure on
Sunday to Tuesday.
I am uber excited about it!
Have a great weekend.
