Rosie – Interior Update Pics and Her New Home

So, Rosie is getting some new digs.  I think she is excited.  I know I am!

Before you ask… No.  It is not a barn.  I want a barn. I wish we had a barn. I dream of a barn.  But no… not a barn.
But we do have a new driveway and it is about time.

This is before:


Yecchh. That weed infested dirt area is where Rosie was living before. It is looking really ratty.

This is after:


So. Much. Better. Buh bye weed gravel. Hello real grownup people driveway.

 Right now Rosie is living on the back patio until the driveway cures.


She looks cute.  She’ll look even better with a new paint job.

And how is she doing on the inside?  Well, I cleared the bunks out and now she looks great!  Take a peek in… hey.. wait!?  Is that a phone bench?  A card table? Chairs? A rolly cart? Who put all of that stuff in there?IMG_1163 IMG_1167











Oh right.  Me.  Because this what happens when I don’t have a barn.  I rip the guts out of the trailer, I spend the next three days hunting down some amazing treasures, and then I have nowhere to store my cool stuff other than in my trailer.  Because my garage, house, and both porches are ALREADY full of cool old 1950s tables (4 of them) and fun chairs (at least 8 of them), cabinet radios, typewriters,  a big old toboggan, vintage washing machines (only one of those) and ::sigh:: lots of other awesome stuff that would love to live in a barn.

Sorry, everyone.  I will do my best to clear her out when it is not 2000 degrees outside and you really will get some nice interior shots.


By the way, how cute is that phone bench?  I can’t wait to clean it up and recover it.
