Introducing….

“Shabby Shack”

.

I don’t think I’ve officially introduced my Shabby on my blog yet.

This here is my Vintage 1968 Fleetwing Camper named “Shabby Shack”

(Yes I name all my campers and I am not alone in doing this! Check out my Sister’s campers on the SOTF site.)   Some call these a Canned Ham or a Tiny Travel Trailer but I call them Pure Cuteness!

I found Shabby on Craigslist. On a whim.

Her outside is original but I plan on changing her up a bit this summer.

.

This was when we were pulling her home from Baltimore.

We stopped at The Turkey Hill Experience to break up the trip.

Her inside has been totally redone.

Inside Shabby

.

This is my little dollhouse.

Us Sisters have a few mottos and one of them is “Making Girls Out of Women.”  When I’m in Shabby I feel like a little girl playing house. I have all the conveniences of home except for one thing… A bathroom. I’m still young so it hasn’t really become an issue yet. When it does, it’ll be time for a shack with those utilities.   Everything in Shabby has been a found item that I purchased for really cheap while junkin or thrifting or it was given to me from special friends and Sisters.

.

I have a few campers but this one is girls only! I take my only daughter on trips in this one. Shabby is our toy. The girl says her favorite part about camping in Shabby is waking up in the morning to the smell of Shabby, the quiet sounds and her and I being together. I’ve come to believe that alone time with each of your children is very important, especially when you have 6.

 Here is my girl on the bunk in Shabby.

I can’t wait till spring weather so I can open her up and sit with some coffee and my iPad and just enjoy the quiet in the mornings and also have my friends over, cause Shabby is always ready for a visit with my friends.

As you can see, Shabby makes me very happy!

She’s my escape, my refuge from all that is wrong, my hiding place.

Thanks for visiting with my Shabby Shack!

My SOTF Sisters

Sister’s On The Fly Sister #1899

 

 

I’m gonna be talking a lot about this so I felt I needed to give you a little intro to SOTF. As many of my friends know, I’m a SOTF. We all have #’s and I’m #1899. Numbers get assigned in order as to when you join the club. Our #’s are now up to almost 3500. I joined in May of 2011 so you know the #’s have inclined most in the past couple of years. You can check out more about my Sisters HERE.

.

We go on Glamping trips throughout the year, you will see more photos of our trips and the fun we have as I post more. And if you don’t know what Glamping is, you will soon. (If you keep watching my blog.)

.

These girls have been such a help to me in the past couple years. They’ve given me a sense of belonging and friendship like a sister relationship should be.

Who says Sisters have to be blood related!!

.

Here’s a news article about two of my East Coast Sisters Carol and Janine. (link below) I LOVE these girls!

Carol’s Log Cabin Camper (in the back) is the same model as my Shabby Shack. We even have campers that are Sisters. ;)

Janine

Janine in her “Roam Sweet Roam” and it is just that, SWEET!!

Carol’s inside is much different then Shabby’s inside. It’s not quite finished here in this photo.

I have yet to meet this other Sister Judy….maybe this summer I will.
