Gone caravanning

I bloody wish!

How adorable is it though. You can see more images here

Now might be the time to tell you I got a caravan - wooooooo hoooooooooo!!!  I've always wanted one and it was on my vision board for this year (more proof that they work) and if you follow me on Pinterest you may have seen a few of them appearing on my boards :O)

There's a bit of work yet to do on it before I give you the big reveal and I certainly can't share a pic now after sharing this polkadot beauty!!  I'm SO SO SO tempted to adorn mine in polka dots but my boyfriend isn't so keen.  I did suggest maybe just the bunting but he doesn't seem too keen on that either.  Hmmm .... the bunting or the boyfriend - decisions eh?  Only joking my lovely xx Not that he reads my blog but just in case!!

Of course I can't stop at one polka dot caravan there's always more ...

This one I found here  I like the little window box.

How about this for the inside?  O M G ... I'm in polka dot cutesy heaven! Lots more pics here  In fact if you're a blogger for any length of time you are bound to have seen these beautiful photos at some time or another I know have over the years. 

And this one is just darling!  I can just picture my one in the back of my garden with fairy lights strewn across the outside. You can see more of this one at this lovely blog.

All I need now is a matching bike .......

Which I just happened to find here

Or failing that maybe I could get one of these found here for the bike I have (hmmm maybe make one ???) 

Ok I'm digressing.  This was supposed to be just a short little post about the polka dot caravan but of course I got totally carried away!!!

Hope everyone is having a lovely Wednesday evening.  I'm feeling like a night of stitching by the fire and maybe watching Miss Potter after reading about someone's visit recently to the Lake District. 

Keeeeeep stitching!

  1. Love the polka dot caravans, very Cath Kidston!

  2. I think I reeeeaaaallllly neeeeeed a caravan.
    My husband can have the Camper Van.


  3. Now Michelle...is this going to be a 'workshop" caravan or a holiday touring van? Either way, I think bright colours and the odd "dot" here and there would be perfectly acceptable.
    We have an old van but it stays in storage near where we holiday each year. I'd love one to do up and use as my workroom. How cool would that be?

    1. Hi Lesley, I've decided if it's going to cost a lot to fix up I'll just keep it as a workroom in the garden - soooo excited :O)

  4. omg I'm so jealous of your purchase! so so so jealous! I even wrote a post about how if I ever had a company car, a camper or VW wagon would be it! And yes, please adorn yours with lots and lots of polka dots!

  5. Those vans are to die for!! I love them! I would love one - but we would have to get a new car that is strong enough to tow it too - or knock the house down, so I can play in it in the garden! lol!
    Can't wait to see your progress pictures, as you do it up.

    1. I'm so impatient. I've had the caravan for months and been slowly but surely doing it up and painting it and saying "I will not put anything on the blog until it's done" but I'm like a small child with a secret :O)

  6. I'd love one too - of course my other half wants a beach home instead!


♥ Thank you so much for your comment ♥ The fact that you have gone out of your way to leave a comment totally makes my day ♥ Have a truly fabulous day! Michelle x
