Isaac and I fantasize about refurbishing and redecorationg an old Airstream trailer. When we head out on family campouts, we often stop at dealerships on the way to peek in the windows of old trailers. Then, as we drive along, we discuss exactly how we would overhaul them in structure, decor, functionality, etc. Isaac has even talked about outfitting an Airstream as an on-site office, parked inside the studio.
Isaac and I may not ever fit this fantasy into our real lives, but look who did! Monique Willms of Pocket Full of Whimsy recently completed a colorful trailer rehab using fabric from my Pop Garden collection.
Through brute-force labor, she and her husband tore apart a crusty old camper, then worked their magic to achieve cheerful results in turquoise and red -- with pops of yellow.
They named the camper Elsie and catalog her adventures with the family in a call-out section of Monique's blog. I don't see how those kiddos can have anything but happy family memories, touring around in such color. Who has ever seen such a collection of bright, ebullient blankets in one space!?
I'm of the strong opinion that women should learn their power tools. Liberate yourself, ladies! Look what you can do.
Give the girl some love.
