Decking the Halls in My Vintage Trailer!

My little trailer is nice and cozy, ready for Christmas fun! I love spending time reading, paper crafting and pondering there. When the grandkids come on Christmas Day they may (as always) want to spend some time in the trailer playing a game or two. It is actually ready if any of the family members traveling would like to sleep in it! A sweet feather bed is under the bedding to keep one warm and toasty!!!
Enlarge all the pictures for detail.










This is my little electric fireplace from my craft room. Perfect for the trailer!
I have questions on the little heater...I bought it at Lowe's last year and yes it makes a room large or small, quite toasty! It has 2 settings. The flames in it look real as they dance around! Clever design.


My vintage Christmas stocking when I was a child!

Goodies are in the gingerbread men canisters.
The rain is coming so I am going to make some hot chocolate!



A little vintage Christmas tree from the 1950's made out of wire hangers!
And the lights still work!


Hope you enjoyed my little home tour of my 13 ft. 1957 trailer!
May your Christmas be Merry & Bright!

Adorable! Now I have to go out and do something with mine. I never thought of using it for overflow fun when we have company. Thanx for your wonderful ideas.

billi said...

Claudia said...

You know I love that trailer! Who wouldn't want to spend time there this holiday season? Can I come stay?

Funny enough, we have been considering a little heater like that and I've been looking at them online. I like the little flames (especially for us, as we don't have a fireplace.)

Elsie said...

Maryjane we have the same taste. I

vintage to it. I love the way you
decorated your little home away from home, soooo cute!!!

I so love your trailer. We have a 2004 caravan but with the threat of redundancy it looks like it's going to be for sale soon. I have a small study in the house and I was seriously thinking of converting it to look like a small vintage caravan. I wonder if him indoors would agree to it?

Amanda said...

Soooo cute! Loved it! Merry Christmas!

dobco said...

I am covetting your Gingerbread canisters! I do my kitchen in gingerbread things! Everything is so cute and homey...what kid would not love to spend time in there? Heck...I want to come and spend time in there!

kerrie said...

I do remember your teenie maltese, Samantha?...but now you have two? I remember yours was only 5 lbs? We thought Bella Bleu would only be 6lbs because her mama was, but she kept growing and is 10lbs now like her daddy. They are the best companions...she is my best friend! ox`kerrie

What a dream caravan!

angie forte said...

Love it!! I had a '50s trailer about 8 years ago. It was decorated in vintage travel items (postcards, souvenirs, and lots of red checkered fabrics). We camped in it once but my girls played in it frequently. It's a great place for tea parties or playing restaurant. I really enjoyed touring your cutie. You've done a beautiful job! Makes me want another.

Janay said...

In viewing the photos of your adorable trailer, I felt the child within me and imagined playing in it as your lucky grandchildren get to do. You've done a wonderful job decorating it!

Forrester Farm Notes said...

Oh Maryjane, If it were as warm in MI as it is in CA during the winter - I'd deck out my vintage trailer too!

Just want you to know that I used some of your tags that I bought off etsy to embellish valentine gifts this year. Loved them!

Sandy said...

I love your vintage camper! And especially decorated for Christmas! Wish it was mine.

Ali said...

If it were mine, I think you'd have trouble ever getting me out of the trailer. Absolutely beautiful. I think it's so important to have a space of one's own, whatever shape it takes.

I LOVE your trailer! I was looking through your blog and spotted the post with your trailer, "don't know how I missed it before." I would love to know where you found the pillows that you have by your table, the ones with the vintage truck and tree on them?
Thanks for posting the pics of your darling trailer.
I think I am the worlds worst blogger but looking at your blog has inspired me to do better! I will be checking back to see what you blog next.
Hugs, Denise
