It's Here! It's Here!

It's Finally Here:)
Ok... I must admit.... I've been stalking the mailbox daily...Waiting ever so patiently.... Waiting for our new home to arrive! I really lucked out on this one- Found it on Ebay, and was totally beside myself when I found out I won the bid! ..... Betcha this isn't what you had in mind when I told you a new house was coming, lol:)

And.... so...... Now the fun begins:) I think I like the planing part best. Right after I ordered it... I started doing research on all things Gypsy. I wrote out a long list from copper pans to a horse shoe.... and all the things in between. And then... I started making some of the things that I needed- for example all the teapots you see I made from polymer clay. (I will have to get better pictures so you can see the age on them.) But now that I have the 'Caravan'.... I'm starting to see that I need a new list.


I ordered it used- There are a few tiny pieces that have broken off and it's a little dusty.... But I love it all the same. I'm seeing a Bright Yellow wagon with green and red accents.....Inside I want wood... and Bright colors. We're gonna need a bed- I've thought about hanging one from the ceiling like a hammock?? And where's the faucet to the sink?


I love the trap door- storage container in the floor...And how the side of the wagon folds down into stairs...


This has got to be one of my favorite HOMES to date:)


I'm getting overwhelmed just thinking of what I could do...... Oh My... I think I need to go find that paper and start writing this stuff down...lol...


Until Next Time:)
