La Dee Dah my vintage trailer

This is my first entry about La Dee Dah and her glamping adventures. People she already is pretty darlin', but can she be the cutest thing ever???

September disappeared so quickly! October holds the last warmth of a  fine summer and a last outing to Seaquest Park in Washington. But I have a few things to get done before that last glamping hurrah of the year.
La Dee Dah is such a sweet little trailer. I have a lot of plans to spiff her up. So I finally bought dishes for her today. After looking for months for vintage melmac and not finding any in the color I wanted. Plus I worry about old plastic!!! I decided on new Corelle called Spring Pink. They will be easy to store and happen to be a great color and design for my vintage trailer. The plates are rimmed in tiny pink and red flowers and compliment things I already have for her. Ya hoo!
 My find last month were adorable apple shaped red metal canisters with bakelite stems for handles on the lids. They fit perfectly along the back of La Dee Dah's little green stove. People, it is so-oh-so cute! Along with these cute dishes, I bought a set of red handled flatware. No more raiding the house! Stay tuned for the pictures when we are on the road.
 I'm excited about the International Glamping Weekend scheduled for June 2-3, 2013. Mr. J. and I would like to go, but aren't sure where this year's Oregon Group will meet. Does anybody know? Last year it was at Stubb Stewart State Park near Vernonia.

  1. I stumbled on your blog while trying to jog my memory of which film "La dee dah, la dee dah." came from. You should post a link to some Face Book pages.
