flamingo

Too cute!! I FINALLY got my baby home and my husband still can not understand my enthusiasm for my '74 Sovereign....I pointed out my mother in laws 'prowler' that she had only bought months ago...The ceiling is buckling, the wallpaper peeling, and it is less than a year old and my 'vintage' is still in much better shape than the high dollars that she paid for her 'SOB'!!! I will post pics ASAP of everything that I am doing on my AS...I lost my charger cord to my camera---ugggghhhh and have to order another one on line.........

Made 'em Myself!

Have to let you know that I hadn't sewn since Home Ec in high school (won't put a number on how long THAT is), and decided that I could make the curtains myself for our 59 Tradewind. Here's a couple of shots of what I made from a bedspread, complete with fringe. Got the bedspread at a thrift store for almost nothing. Used my Mom's old sewing machine that I sewed on in high school. Not perfect, but not bad IMHO.
BTW, the flamingo in the front window rides there all the time....

i-m-eynstein () those rat nests of orphened cords are so pesky and they just get up and walk away, argh! Hope your new cord arrives soon, would love to see your pictures.

gypsygirl I love a golden light coming in from the windows it's so pleasing and you did a great job of sewing. The fringe is beautiful. I like your juke box and fan. I love the retro accents. I am looking for those odd shaped ceramic pieces such as candy dishes or ash trays one would see on a coffee table for my table...so far no luck.

Louis, love your blog, that chicken recipe I copied, mmmm. The aluminum tree is perfect! I remember our glass ornaments and color wheel. We were so "modern" then.

You just have to stop at the Sally-Ann stores, and thrift stores and keep looking for those little vintage knick-knacks. The fun is in the search ! ! Happy hunting! ! Here's a shot of our 'other' trailer -- 1952 Royal Spartanette 35ft. The print recliner was my parents' when they got married, the knick-knacks on the shelf behind were found at yard-sales, and thrift shops... Good luck...

OD let me see OUTDOORS NO HOW about a Abbreviation for Outside Diameter. So also ID for Inside diameter Both terms used mostly by machinists. but also used to describe the outside of tires and pipe or the outside of any circle.
Hows that?

I made two, 30ft runs that began between the battery compartments forward, around each side, ending together below the license plate in the rear.

1000Bulbs sells 3ft 'U' shaped plastic channels that the rope lighting 'snaps' into. I removed every other rivet in the alum extrusion that carries the normal blue vinyl to mount the plastic channels...to keep the run continuous, I had to run over the wheel wells, under the water heater and on the other side under the entry door.

I wired the supply wires up front into the switch for the small light on the electric Tongue jack...easiest way to go...

We now call our AS 'The Blue Halo'...
Maybe if I had those... The cop would have missed me.

Gypsygirl I absolutely am drooling over your Spartanette. I love the wood and the character you have given it! I am having a ball just meandering through your living room. Thanks for posting the picture.

Donna I will do a search for those lamps they sound interesting. I trust your decorating sense, your Airstreams are wonderfully decorated. Thanks.

How's it going Michelle? Got your baby fixed yet? Hope they made her bionic and built her even better. I was so sad to hear of the mishap but ever so glad you were not hurt. Are you enjoying your stay with friends now?

Carol,
I am at my sisters in Florida. I have not heard from them nor have I called. They will call when she is done. I have been busy looking after my nephews and neice as well as doing many projects around the house my sisters soon to be ex-husband neglected to do. I have been keeping busy. THe house purchase in Missoula is progressing.

Sounds like things are really bustling for you. We'll have to have a virtual online house warming party for ya. I bet that would be kinda cool. (The gifts will be cheaper too.) Keep us posted. Haven't seen a picture from you since Spokane.

Here's some pics of how I mounted the blue rope light on our 'Blue Halo'...the 'U' shaped plastic channel is riveted inside the lower alum extrusion that normally holds the wide, blue vinyl strip...
