I have been busy collecting tips , tricks and ideas for the RV. I've joined a couple of RV Face Book groups and i have decided on a Beach theme.
I absolutely love the beach and wish i could live close to it but since that's not possible i can at least pretend i am .
So here are a couple of pics from the interior of my RV.
 Please excuse the mess, the owners more or less just parked it since last use and used it for storing odds and ends.
So this is the kitchen:
                   Whats with that mirror? Whoever thought that looks good?
                   Its one of the first things that will have to go!!!Ugly , ugly , ugly!!!                                                                            
                                                                                                                                                                   I hope it comes off easy !!!

                                                                                                                                                              The cabinets and walls will be painted white, all of them , throughout the RV and they will have some kind of color accent, not sure yet what, probably a light sea foam green or a nice soft coral red.
I love wood, but since this is such a small space ( and some of the cabinet door parts are some kind of fake wood anyways), the white will make it look bigger and will bring light in there.
 I'm looking at several knobs to put on the doors. I have my eyes on some beach glass ones but they are pricey, so i guess ill make my own, maybe from shells I've collected.
                                                                                                                                                                That leather/ vinyl cabinet end piece will be replaced by a spice rack. Those window cornices also will be removed, they are over every window in there.Same with that thing over the door.

                                                                                                                                                                The counter top will need a makeover too, but not sure yet what its gonna be.                                                
I came across a very neat idea about the stove back splash on pinterest. It will put a good deal of color there and stick with the beach theme.
Aaaahhh, how i wish i could start already.
Of course before i can tackle any of that there will be a great cleanup first. its not bad dirty but it has been sitting there unused for several years.
I will reveal more of my plans for my future weekend getaway/home in the next few days. Now im getting back to pinterest and see what else i can find :)
Also working on a thick pair of socks for a auction for a friends rabbit club.

So i had the opportunity to buy a '83 Winnebago (33 foot long) from my employer on a layaway deal for really , really cheap. Well, for me its still a fortune but since i can pay as i can afford it , i just had to do it. It will be parked permanently on a friends property in the country. I hope to have it moved there early next year.There will be a lot of redecorating and upgrading going on.

I am so very excited about this. Eventually this will be my home , but hopefully for several years yet it will be my weekend getaway.
As this will be located at my friends farm with sheep, goats, rabbits etc. i will be in paradise.I'm already researching and collecting ideas how to redecorate.

Well Hello there :)
After several years (3 1/2) absence i have decided to start posting again.
Just a few here and there , more regular a few months from now.
Just a short recap: I've had a major life change about 3 years ago ( separated from husband after 8 years of hell) and subsequently had to deal with some mental issues (PTSD , due to severe mental abuse),which left me in a state of severe depression and anxiety attacks.
But with the help of friends , who i will be forever grateful for, i am ready to leave the past behind and look forward to new adventures.
I will be revising some of my older posts and remove any pics or mentions of my ex.So if some of the tags on some of the posts are not accurate, i apologize.
Now with this out of the way: lets dive into new and exciting times to come.
