Pink Saturday


For some odd reason, this week I've been absolutely fascinated with small travel trailers. It's just one of those things...I've never had an inclination to camp---outdoor living is really not my style. I've noticed a few of these small trailers on blogs...people have turned them into craft studios, offices, and what I would call playhouses on wheels. How cute would one of these look parked beside my favorite Katrina cottage? I've been obsessed with those for well over a year. I'm sure my trailer obsession won't last that long, but in the meantime, I've browsed through Trailer Travel: A Visual History of Mobile America. Some of those little "teardrop" trailers are pretty cute, too.

I too have recently been drawn to the little trailers. I would love a little cottage to live in. Not so much housework then.

I am with you on the camping thing. My idea of camping is a beautiful Country Inn where you have to share a bath with another room. That's as rustic as I want to be!

Love that Katrina cottage. Have a good and restful holiday weekend.

There is something very charming about those little trailers, but I agree with you, camping is not my idea of fun. A pink one would make the most precious studio, though.

I am not a fan of outdoor living either!!

I would have loved for my parents to buy me a trailer to play in as a child. Oh what fun that would have been.

Happy Pink Saturday!

take care,
Dawn

Teresa, I know exactly what you mean. I have recently been drawn to these, too. They are so enticing.

And, I am definitely not one for "roughing it". My idea of roughing it is having a regular hotel room instead of a suite.

Maybe I could have one just to play in in my back yard.

Oh! You're the one who got me hooked on those Katrina cottages! I knew that it was one of my blogging pals. I must be traveling in the same blogging circles that you are because I've seen the most darling trailers, too, and I don't like camping either. But to use for a little writing get-away or blogging get-away would be great!

Oh, that pink trailer is so cute!
I would LOVE to have one as little craft studio or even a guest room.

Now maybe I'd go camping if I could use a pink camper like that one. :)

Suzie Button said...

Those little camper trailers are so deep, I've seen some of the bloggers online who have one. LUCKY! Happy Pink Saturday!

What cute Pink pretties. Love the camper and the little pink cottage.
I would love to have a cute pink camper to camp in we try to go camping a couple of times a year. But sadly this year it has been way to hot.
Have a happy pink weekend..

very cute trailer and I LOVE the idea of using one or the little katrina cottages for a craft studio. Sigh! Please send me an email about the Very Vintage Halloween Swap through Heidi Devlin's blog as I am your partner-Just would like to know more about what you like. Thanks!

I too love the vintage pink travel trailers. I have a travel trailer but I had to settle for the ultra light ones with a bathroom inside. My girlfriends and I have a blast in it. Happy Pink Sat.

Joy said...

I love those little trailers too despite the fact that I am also anti-camping. It would be so much fun to refurbish one and use it as a little getaway spot. :o)

Dena ~ swaddlecottage said...

Oh I want one too! A perfect little cozy place to decorate and play! It's like a dollhouse for grown up girls :)

Hugs,

Oh! I adore those tiny little *pink* campers! They are so darling! And that little *pink* house is so cute, too! Camping is really fun when you have a camper, trailer, motor home, etc! (you take it all with you, tee hee!)
