Just to prove my point!

This first little old trailer Dan & I found while doing photographic research for the cottage style class that I teach. I did a section on alternative cottages - get aways. This one is tucked away in norther Michigan rather abandoned but had most likely been used for hunting. We were privilaged to be able to look in side, it was all original and with a little tlc could have been SO CUTE! ( I think could have even had a PINK stripe added!) He would have sold it to us for $500.
The next one you might remember from our January 2008 blog the cutest little double wide ever. It is in Arizona - facinating!
And the mod daisy version is from a Cath Kidston book and I dream of having this in the back yard as my office! How cute would that be?! I am not sure the city of East Grand Rapids would allow it...........
But one can dream :>

I love these little trailers. What's with that? Have you seen the cute one 2 dealers share at Allegan -- all redone in pink!? And there is one at a show we do in Kentucky, totally matching to it's vintage pickup. Lucky!! xo -- Sandy/rhubarb reign

So cool! I actually saw a cool idea of having one in your backyard as a "guest room". I'm thinking I could have overnights with my grandchildren and we could gather round a firepit and roast hot dogs and make s'mores. And I would hang crazy lights from the awning. What fun to dream! Love, Sue
