Today I'm excited to introduce you to my new weekend getaway... my home away from home... my sweet little humble abode in the woods... The Travelux Pearl.
I literally sigh just saying those words out loud, I am SO excited! Three weeks ago we drove 2,000 km to pick this little pretty up and I've been smitten ever since. It's a 1972 ninteen foot Travelux trailer (the Canadian version of an Airstream).
The previous owner named this trailer 'the Beast' which seemed far from fitting for it's tiny silver stature. The instant the keys were ours, we renamed her the 'Travelux Pearl' to emphasize the true rarity of this trailer.
We've spent the last few weeks plotting and planning our trailer reno, and she's gonna get a total overhaul (we're talking GLAMper status people). While my hubby is busy wielding the woodworking tools, I've been writing out a sewing hit list (what you didn't think this post would be fabric/crafting free did you?!).
Here's my hit list so far:
- Constellations Bed Quilt;
- Hubby's Camping Quilt (special by request);
- Upholster new foam cushions;
- Sew and install curtains;
- Sew som throw pillows; and
- Make a puppy bed.
I've got a deadline of July 23rd to finish these projects so I better get a move on stat. If anyone has any glamper, camping or upholstery tips I am all ears! I'm jumping into the deep end with this one.
