Happy 4th! Now go love on a military man!

Oh my I love the 4th of July !!!! I am so excited to have pride for the ol red whit and blue!
When our flag stood for something & we honored who served under it!
So go out and love on a military man! Or woman for that matter give them some extra Thank you's & appreciation! They so deserve it gals!!!!!
Show some good ol down home love for our great USA!
Oh dolls This is my newest old Glory find! A tattered old flag worn out by the winds on a old farm here in the USA ...instead of burning it a wonderful lady who was passionate repurposed it to show your pride!!! Not sure how I felt about it but after talking to her and her passion for this ol flag I would of paid anything to have it! 

So I got it!!! She makes one a year...once her tattered flag is ready to be pulled down she makes her old glory bag! I'm very fortunate to have it! I care for it very gently & can I say oh ya it has 16 pockets! A packers dream!
So can I get a yahoooo sista! And go love on this good ol USA! Hug on our military...let's get back to being thankful for all they do and sacrifice for us all!
Happy 4th USA !!!!!

Vagabond Gypsy trailer before & after!

Howdy kittens! So many of you know we pulled this lil gem out of the snow in Utah a few months ago & It was such a whirl-wind to get her campable for my fist sisters on the fly trip that I didn't post before and after pictures! I've gotten some emails askin me to do so...so here I go!!! Thank you to all of ya for givin a rooten tooten!;)
Oh my I forgot how bad it was! But I loved her from the moment I saw her! So much damage and lots of weird wall paper...wires everywhere! But the amazing molding just took my breath away!!!!!
Adding in the new wood flooring...it was thankfully just ply wood! A lot less work than my pink trailer! 
Gutted the front and daddy-o built in a couch with lots of storage! See the shutters !!!!! Omg!!!!! I thought I have them everywhere in my house why not in my Gypsy trailer! So I was on the hunt for them to fit! I have to be honest daddy-o didn't see my vision but did them any way! Now it's one of his favorite parts!
This was the day when the paint dried & doors got put back on...I hung that vintage picture frame with her name right away! Inspiration each time I worked on her:)
Ok so once more before...
And...after!
My junkie kitchen:) which I collected all that cute junkie stuff for this trailer for years! All the vintage silver & metal mirrors
My side table:) an old vintage vanity...& my junkie oven...actually came that way...the lil old lady who owned her I truly think had my same vision...she had tubs of junkie gody metal goods waiting to be installed:) it found me I truly believe!
To my front couch ...
My vintage wings I bought at the urban barn in Escondido...my sconce chandlers I bought there as well...table from the vintage market place...but I have since found another coffee table at the Salvation Army:)
This end table was from my mother gifted to my daughter and then found its home in my trailer with a fresh coat of paint:)
Now the vanity I've had for years I actually put it by my trash can curbside a few months ago then thought bring it back in...couldn't believe daddy-o got it to fit right in!!
My oven!
Junkie!!!!!
So that's my girl I'm still working on the bathroom & I still have the tin to put on the roof which I think will be amazing! I'm looking for copper:)
Oh I forgot take a look at this...So above the beds is a door & it has a fan...thought it was so cool! Pull Down the door and cool off!
Any way thanks for all the interest and wonderful comments & emails...she truly is special:) til next time happy trails!!
