R & R

Finding R & R in my little trailer! I have lots of rooms in my home to relax but there is nothing like my little ButtonWillow! My little play house. For several weeks now I haven't felt my best, had some small health issues "pop up", finding out it is all due to a bad kidney infection. Now on the mend! Each day I go to my little trailer with my two Maltese dogs, Samantha & Charlie, and spend time to take a little nap on my feather bed and do some orders for my Etsy shops. Having that cute little air conditioning has been a blessing on warm days! The buzz of the air conditioning sounds like small airplanes starting their engines and flying over the house! All I need to hear is my son Nathan calling out "prop" (starting engine!) Ahhh, heaven!
Come take a peek at a few changes I made...Time to heal.
Thanks daughter Heidi for painting my toes!
My soft, cozy feather bed!Working on a "Special Order"!
Touches of blogger friends sweetness throughout!

My Jewel trailer is 53 years old!
When the dogs hear my trailer keys a'jingl'in, they come'a run'in!
A blogger asked if I take my trailer out on camping trips...I sure do!
Have a wonderful week!

Oh, I love being invited into your home away from home! It is just precious! I would love to prop my feet up and get my nails polished! Enjoy your weekend! ♥

Come by and see what I did for the Bloggerette Sorority Rush art work..I think you will get a chuckle out of it!

Jill said...

I love your charming little trailer so much! I dream of owning and decorating a vintage trailer someday. I'll probably have to go with a Teardrop-- I think that's all my little Honda CRV could haul!
PS: Hope you're feeling better!

Terra said...

Hi Maryjane, I am glad to hear you are on the mend, and your trailer is darling and I am sure it suits you to a "t". What a lovely sanctuary where you can have R&R and also do some work.
Please stop by my blog and say hi one of these days. Today I posted about using nasturtium flowers in a salad. Yum.

Claudia said...

I love that trailer, Maryjane! Glad to hear you are feeling better - maybe the kidney infection was related to how you were feeling the day we met? Sounds like the mystery was solved!

I adore your trailer - I can' imagine anything more fun than to retreat to you own private little refuge.

Diane said...

Maryjane can I come and sleep in your feather bed? LOL! Around here there is never a peaceful moment. We have adopted our 5 year old grandson and my husband just retired and I need some alone time.................that bed looks so cozy I would love to just crawl in it and cover my head up!
Your camper is just darling.

Diane said...

OOPs forgot to tell you to take care of that kidney infection and don't let it get out of hand.

Marydon said...

If we could all have such a warm inviting place like this to 'steal away' to. I love it.

Have a lovely summer's eve ~

Sandra said...

What a darling, sweet hideaway! I am SO in lust for a vintage trailer!

kpaints said...

I want one right now!! I am working on it, finally, the weather has improved. I ended up taking off another side and I must replace a rear panel as the wind ripped a corner of it...will I ever get to 'play' like you? I love yours! It is so cute...and now I am thinking I might need an air conditioner! Ha!

Dawn Dutton said...

What a sweet getaway! Enjoy and feel better soon... You will be in my prayers. Dawn

Beautifully Veiled said...

If there is a type of jealousy that is not sinful, then that is the type I have right now!!! So glad you are getting to rehab in your little jewel. I need another pink camper!!! Thanks for the sneak peak inside!

Linda Stubbs said...

Hi Maryjane, wish I lived by you and I would bring you some comfort food! Sorry to hear you are down, but what an adorable place to sit back and be down!

Saw the little tea bag cozy in one of your pic's. Made me smile! I need to start making some of those again. I have been having so much fun making up Grandmother's Flower Garden flowers. I am addicted!

Well, love and hugs. I am praying for a fast recovery for you.
Blessings, Linda

Linda said...

Such a charming place to recuperate! Hope you are feeling great soon!
