Here she is folks...our 'new' vintage piece of joy!
Many of you already know about my passion and insane desire to own a vintage caravan. (I'm a bit nuts over anything little, and homey, but that's another story)
Well after nuturing this dream quietly, and not so quietly, a couple of weeks ago, we found her, and i was besotted!
It still feels a bit surreal.
Here are a few details about her....
She's a 12 foot custom made Bondwood caravan, her exact date of manufacture is a bit sketchy, but it's mid - late 50's.
We are so grateful that her condition is so good for her age, I'll post more pics of the inside, once I wipe over the red dust from Lightening Ridge (NSW)!
A big thanks needs to go to my hubbie John, and Adam for the big trip over to Melbourne to collect her.
Honestly, what is love, if it isn't my darling sweetie enduring two 10 hour boat trips in 2 days!?
And, Adam, what a great friend you are for your support.
It's a credit to her former owners, that she has been tended so lovingly over the last 10 years, and I suddenly felt yesterday, so heavy with the responsibility that comes with a vintage item! We are now the custodians, with a duty to tend and treat her well...after all she has quirks!
I have plans to colour her up a bit......
She needs definitely needs a name ...maybe I could run a competition on the blog?
My sister has kindly sent me her short list!
