Camping in the desert with Sisters on the Fly!

Here are my trailer pictures I promised from this past weekend camping with my group
Sisters on the Fly in Quartzite, AZ. I have shown pictures of my trailer in the past, but these are new pics from our recent trip. For those of you who have never met ButtonWillow...This is my little 13 ft. 1957 Jewel! I named her ButtonWillow and I love her to pieces! When not using her camping, she is parked on our property and I go sit in her to crochet, read or watch a vintage movie. Yes, I own the Long, Long Trailer with Lucy & Desi. Click on Sisters on the Fly and see what we are all about! xox
My Bedroom. I made most of the pillows. I LoVe my feather bed! Samantha loves it to! My kitchen. Look at that stove! I have 4 burners, oven & a broiler! What else does a gal need?! LOL! Dishes to wash. My cupboards are filled with vintage Melmac! My Dinette Area. Where I spend most of my time! LOL! Cat's #997 cutie pie trailer! Janet's #511 cutie pie trailer! Barbara's #116 cutie pie Airstream! Lynn #38 & Suzanne's #463 cutie pie trailers! Home Sweet (Away From) Home!

Hugs,
Maryjane
Sister #595

Hi Maryjane! I love your camper!! and if only I lived closer I could join up and go camping too! Here is a link to my blog where my vintage camper is decorated with vintage cherries. I have a lot of other photos and more on the blog someplace. Don't you just love hanging out in your camper?? My sister and I have crafty sleepovers in mine, which is parked out back of my apartment!
Thank you for stopping by and I will visit again!

*Shelli* said...

Mom what a blast. Love hearing about it but seeing the pictures... how fun. Glad you and dad had a great time. Funny to think of dad sleeping in your pink trailer with a chandelier over his head while sleeping :) I'm sure he was very cozy with the fluffy bedding. We need to have lunch in ButtonWillow soon!

Absolutely fabulous. I am so envious.
Thanks for the smiles.

Love your trailer. I am in the process of redoing mine. I bought it in May and havent done anything yet but gut the entire thing. I sold the Scotty so I have to get busy on it. I am missing out on all of the sister fun! We have several events here in Tx over the next few months.

Hi Mary Jane

Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a nice comment.

I love your ButtonWillow airstream! You made it so homey.
My husband and I often wish we could could buy an airstream and drive all over the country for a year -- just a dream right now.

11 grandchildren! You are very blessed! I love that big cupcake cake :-)

Mimi Sue said...

Love your little playhouse on wheels. Is it very heavy to pull? My neighbor has one that I'd like to get my hands on. It just sits in his backyard and I can tell it's lonely. Did you buy yours restored? Looks like you gals have a lot of fun. Mimi

Kathy said...

How absolutely darling, Maryjane! Your camper is wonderful and so are the others. You have it decorated with just the right amount of pink western roses! So cute - and it looks like you have lots of fun in your sweet home away from home!

Anne Fannie said...

Hi Maryjane, sounds like you and Don had a great time in Button Willow this past weekend! Hey, I noticed the vintage trailer birdhouse I gave you hanging in the front of it! Woohoo!
We should do a girls sleepover in Button Willon one night!
I also noticed Samantha has found a cozy spot! She is adorable as always!
Love you....Ann

the wild raspberry said...

I LOVE the quilt on your bed! Is that the Grandmother's Flower Garden pattern? Also, the decoupaged cabinets are amazing. Thanks for the peek into the life of a vintage cowgirl.

tam said...

Maryjane I am sooo diggin on your vintage trailer! It is so darn cute-I want one! I wanted one for years and years and the oldman of the house just ignores me on that one-You lucky girl! I always get my way eventually so I will have mine someday. In the meantime I will just drool over yours!

High Desert Diva said...

Oh jeez....it is so adorable! That stove!!! Vintage trailers are so much better. We'd actually love to have an old Airstream. *dream*

This is the link to how I re-did the inside of our 1995 monster. I'll paint the nasty oak cabinets when I get some more motivation!

OH I just love that little yellow oven/stove! You'd like my old pink stove (http://countingyourblessings.blogspot.com/2007/08/famous-or-infamous.html)

I see Back Through Time visited you. You should get to know her ~ She's wonderfully fun! And her cherry camper is darling. It was in the same Porch that Vintage Housewife was in. I love seeing all your trailers!

Blessings... Polly

Yours is adorable!

Claudie said...

I love your little trailer Maryjane. Samantha is like my little Bonnie. She's always cuddled on the pillows. Now if my kids or hubby ever put their dirty socks on my pillow I would have a bird, but Bonnie... well you know.

Love Claudie

The Pink Bird House said...

Hi, LOVE the way you decorated the inside of your trailor, absolutely adorable with the pink ruffled pillows, quilt on the bed, the sweet doggie there too, and the table with its pink table cover. I, like so many who have left comments, dream/have dreamt of owning such a sweet little trailor and traveling around in it, enjoying the views along the way, relaxing in my own special corner of it and reading a good book, and all the cozy moments to be had there. How delightul. Enjoyed your post very much! ciao, Deborah

Elyse said...

hi maryjane!

i LOVE your camper, especially the kitchen. i can imagine how much fun you have in/with it.

my sister has a camper and last summer we had a sisters weekend in ocean city, nj. how fun it was all bumping into each other in the cozy trailer.

enjoy, my friend!

Hi Maryjane!

What cuties those lil' trailers are! My uncle had the smallest Airstream trailer made, I think it was made in the early 50's, and he and my aunt traveled to all the states through their traveling years. It was the cutest little trailer!! You girls sure look like you're having a ball!!

Hugs, Sherry

The trailers are adorable...I used to own trailers years ago but your are decorated much prettier than I would have even thought to do back then. I'd love to have a little old Shasta now and transform it like you have.! :o) Sue

Frippery said...

I came your way via Antiques and more and Talking Trash. I ADORE your little trailer. I have always wanted one. I can't wait to check out the other gals in your group and their little mobile cottages. Your little dog is so cute on the bed. I'll be visiting often, Pam (There are a lot of "littles" in this comment)

Deborah said...

Those are the most adorable vintage cubby campers! How I would love spending a night in one of them. Do you travel in a caravan of campers or meet up at a campsite?

Precious, precious!!!

Donna @ Party Wishes said...

LOVE those trailers! I told my friend about your group and thinks you are so fun! (me too!) Love the merit badges (I'm a Girl Scout leader). BTW, I had a peek-a-poo named Samantha. Thanks so much for sharing!

Hello there Ms. Maryjane! I kind of stumbled into your blog this afternoon and find it thoroughly enchanting ... I'll be back!

Kathie Truitt said...

Oh, maaannnn!! I wanna come! I'm looking for an airstream to go with my "Dixie." Is there a 'sisters on the fly' chapter on the East Coast? I could really, really use some gals like you to get away from these high-falutin' people 'round here. No. Seriously. I could really use you gals.

violetlady said...

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog. I am so happy I have found yours. I think I saw a TV show once on campers like these and maybe about your group. Were you on TV? I would give anything to have a little camper like that - especially where I could go horseback riding. I have never been out west, but love all things "cowgirl." I will be following you on your blog. Thank you so much for sharing and adding to my dream.

"Just Me - NC Beth" said...

Oh, my gosh!! I fell in love with your camper!! And the others too!!

Hubby and I just started camping a couple of years ago...we have a pop-up...I must say ours pales in comparison to yours!!

Thank you for visiting my blog I truly hope you will visit again soon!

~Beth

trash talk said...

I came over from Antiques and More. Lisa told me about you and your darling camper. My husband recently bought me a canned ham and I am going to redo it. It's a vintage shasta that was on a deer lease(eewww!) and I am looking for all kinds of hints, sources, etc. Love what you did with yours. We girls will decorate anything we get our hands on, won't we. I'll be checking back for sure. Debbie

Nikki via The Scarlett Rose Garden said...

Greetings MJ! I just adore your camper. Great stories too! That little card with all the campers in the snow is really cute~

An Accomplished Woman said...

Oh my goodness. I love your camper. And all the other campers. Love it, wish it was warmer here to travel in such a cute camper.

Stacey said...

Your trailers are like little doll houses on wheels. That's my kind of camping!

That is the cutest camper! And I tell you that just don't make them like that anymore! I loved the outside instantly when I saw your picture, but then you showed the inside and oh...how sweet! I don't blame you for hanging out in there! It sounds like fun camping with the "sisters"!

I also enjoyed the pictures of your granddaughter's birthday tea party too! So sweet!

Hi Maryjane! I love your blog!! Absolutely fascinating. Didn't I see a feature on TV of your "fly sisters" and the cutie pie trailers? I seem to remember that. Can't begin to tell you everything I've seen and love in your blog so I'll for sure be back often. I believe it fair to say you really LIVE life and not just watch it go by. I envy you that.

Maryjane, I just never get tired of looking at those dreamy photos of your trailer. It's a good thing that i can't visit, because you'd never get rid of me! LOL

I love how Samantha looks right at home. You can tell that she knows who Buttonwillow REALLY belongs too!

Smiles,
Lea

Ok, that does it! I'm getting one of these too!!! You've done so much beautiful work in your little camper, it's just fabulous! I have told my husband that I'd like to do this and he had convinced me I didn't really want to. He was wrong! Now that I see yours I'm so inspired! Thanks so much for sharing...oh, and thanks for visiting my cottage blog! We have many interests in common! Fun!!!

Hi Maryjane, I just found your page and thought I'd died and went to heaven...I love your camper! It reminds me of all the GREAT times our family had back in the'50s, '60's, and '70's with our campers. It's beautiful. I want one!

Hi Maryjne! The pictures of your trailor took me back in time a looong way! My grandparents pulled a 32' trailor from CA when they moved back to PA, and lived in it the rest of their lives. The design though is awesomely the same as yours and I felt like I was walking into their place again when I viewed your pics! Unbelievable! And did you make that quilt and pillows on your bed? My grandma had flower garden patches that I am finishing into a quilt (has taken me several yrs though) Thanks so much for posting this!

Thank you!

LOVE IT! Too much fun. Thanks for the wonderful photos. Now I want to run away and become a Sister on the Fly! But I probably couldn't bring all my sheep - or my five donkeys. ; )

You welcomed me to MJF and lead me to visit your beeeeyouuuutifulll sites! What an incredibly happy time I'm having and thank you so much.
The Sisters on the Fly site is incredible. I've always wanted one of those little trailers and Dave said, after seeing the SOTF site, "start looking!"
Glory Be!! And, y'all are going to be in TN in April, just about next door to me.
A few years ago, I saw a few of these campers on I-95 in NC and just about wrecked my car in my rubbernecking attempts -laughing at self here-.
Thanks for the lovely visit, too much of a good thing is great!
God's blessings on you, yours and the work of your hands and heart.

Hi, With Tearful Eyes after reading through several posts on your Wonderful Blog, Don't mean to be Wierd....and I do Love My Mom, But, I wish I Had A Mom Like You! When You Have Nothing In common, it is a Hard Hard Road to Travel Alone. Your Family is So Very Lucky to Share their life with! You Are A Blessing!

laurmela said...

I want one! I have read about sisters on the fly for a few years now, and I want a trailer! I fish but haven't learned to fly fish yet. Will have to have DH teach me! I am in CA as well, DH and I are going to the Sierra's next weekend for our 25th, just us! Haven't done that for 20 years! Love your site.

I love your caravan :-)

Jana said...

Hello MaryJane- Just wanted to compliment you on your little trailer. I am the artsy neighbor of Cat's who painted her Lil" Cupcake. so much fun! She's a wonder and I can tell you are too!
My crazy little camper is still being rebuild so I am a future Sister, not a present one but am so enjoying the site and the stories.
I am going the vintage surfer van route- with denim and Wilendur fabric mixed in (in my future-since its in framing stage now!)
Hope to meet you in person someday!

The Shanty Girl said...

Maryjane, I love to camp so of course when I saw your trailer I had to read. I love your trailer. I tried to talk hubby into a vintage airstream that needed alot of work he talked me in to an outback as he was tired of renovations, everytime I see a vintage trailer camping I start talking to the owner and eventually I get invited to check it out! I have seen a few campers with the sisters on the fly painted on them and now I know what that is about!! Thanks for sharing your pictures!.

Jeanne said...

How adorable your vintage trailer is! It makes camping look like lots of fun. It's like a trip down memory lane!

Maryjane,
You're trailer is wonderful, & beautiful & I have been looking for one for over a year. For one reason or another they haven't panned out. If you hear of one or know one for sale, please get in touch with me. I would like to be a member of sister's on the fly. My e mail is wildwolfeyes@yahoo.com. Karen

Createology said...

I just came over to visit from Donna @ Brynwood Needleworks. I must say I am swooning over everything I see so far. Your little trailer reminds me of days spent with my Grandma in her little travel trailer. I too love buttermilk pie. I will be returning often. Thank you for your wonderful blog...

Diane said...

I just found your blog and love it! Love the trailer. I am hoping to invest in a small trailer myself....yours gave me inspiration!! I am your newest follower, looking forward to more posts. Diane

Maryjane,
I just found your website and I am enchanted!
I can't wait to share this with my sister-in-law, who shares my affection for vintage goodies, especially cowgirl and camper items...
Where did you find the pale pink pillow fabric featuring the horseheads with names? I just adore it.
Karen

Maryjane-The Beehive Cottage said...

Hello Karen! I actually found the fabric on eBay a few years ago. The designer is from "The Alexander Henry Fabrics Collection" This material came out in 2004. I bet you can still find it on eBay. Goggle it too! Good Luck finding some!

Hugs,
Maryjane

Lois said...

Love the camper! We have one that is about the same "vintage" age but it is decorated in camo and hunting fabric for the deer hunters in my life. We call it the Saginaw Sleeper because it sits under the trees in Saginaw township during deer hunting.

I am glad to have found your blog! I will visit often.

Oh you are such an inspiration! I have a 1968 camper and she is my baby. I thought I was the only one that loved old campers. I never thought to tear into her and make her so lovely. well I can't wait for spring cuz I am going to crazy decorating her!! I hope you don;t mind but I would like to use some of your ideas and maybe pick your brain for hints on how to transform her!! new follower of you and i love your blog!!

I know some of the early sisters but have not seen your trailer. I love all the decor and can see why you would escape to the trailer. I have been know to escape to mine as well as the teardrop. Lovely photos.

Maryjane, It' T. from the Burg here. Thanks for the link to my Etsy shop. I have been prowling your blog, have loved every delightful morsel of it, but especially photos of your little trailer. I SO aspire to be a Sister on the Fly! Maybe one day...
