My new baby!

via Get Campie

‘Been having long dreaming out loud talks with PH about a potential “girls’ clubhouse” vintage trailer.

Turns out my guy actually wants to hang with me in the clubhouse…being that he’s 6’6″, the cute little ones a’ la Sisters on the Fly just won’t cut it.


We came across this little beauty (always been a fan of airstreams..esp. vintage ones) ….It’s a 1977.

…and now she’s part of the family!

True to the genes, Katie demos how she barely fits in the door.

Looking a bit like the Brady’s living room palette…you can imagine the color scheme I’m dreaming up. LOTS of white paint! And color…lots of colorful accessories.

What do you think for these bed covers…polka dots? red poppies? damask? Can’t wait to get started!

Of course, what good is yakking about our new addition, without scoping out some amazing re-dos? Man, people are creative…it’s just awesome.

or maybe a bowling alley added in? Hmmmm? Ha!

Or, just a “simple” make-over like Miranda’s…holy cow..that pink couch gets me every time! You can read the whole “Airstream Chronicle” story here.

Or..just go with “Design by Dr. Seuss” style below…thinking  PH might have a coronary.

This is one I would consider…so lovely!

..and one last dreamy airstream vision for your Wednesday…aaaahhhhh…

I’m dreamin’ away, lovelies…so nice to have this distraction! We do need a name…any suggestions? Wanting a female, fun, sassy name. I’d appreciate your input!

    So excited (and jealous) for you!! How about Silver Belle.

  2. Sonnet Gal says:

    Every time we saw an Airstream traveling down the road, my dad would comment, “Airstream…the Cadillac of RV’s!” Will you be bringing it to Texas in January?!

  3. Mikal says:

    Oh WOW! I didn’t think anything could get better than Miranda’s, but I LOVE the Apartment Therapy version even more. So happy you get to play with this new baby!

  4. Sherri B. says:

    I am so happy for you! I have been dreaming and talking of the day we get our Airstream for several years now….yours is a beaut!! Have fun decorating!

    I AM IN LOOOOOOOOVE!!!!!!!!!!!!! I CAN NOT WAIT to see what you do with this! Congratulations…this is the happiest news, ever!! YAYY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  6. kim says:

    Are you kidding me?? Oh, Lara, I’m so happy for you and the fun you’re going to have with “her”. She’ll need her own weather-vane thingy out front! 😉 Congratulations!

  7. Christine says:

    Oh my goodness, I am thrilled for you, and a tiny bit jealous, too. I’d want mine to look like that Get Campie image (I’ve always dreamt of having one of those babies!). What an absolute delight she will be! Congratulations! I tend to like nature-related names like Daisy and Ginger, that still have that retro feel, but a famous retro name, like Rosie or Donna might be fun, too. Good luck choosing a name for your new baby!

    I just know you’re going to turn it into a beautiful girly masterpiece. Can’t wait to see what you do with it.


  9. jeanne says:

    It is going to be soooo amazing! Can’t wait to see what you do with it! Congrats and I don’t really hate you…..

    O.K. Lara, this is just too weird…I just bought a 1963 Lil’ Ceasar canned ham trailer this past week…My husband does have to “slouch” a bit to fit inside my little sweetheart , since he is 6’2″, but he doesn’t mind (he says, he is so good to me) My little ones nome is “Alice” and it fits her perfectly….While I am older than you I find it rather uncanny that many of your lifes events coinside with what is going on in my life….granted my kids are grown, but the struggles and searches you talk about are ones I deal with on a daily basis….So I look forward to seeing what you do with your girl….maybe the name “Aunt Bea”, “B” as in Bodacious……Blessings…..

  11. M says:

    Super fun! Baby Sloan is a cutie name!

  12. Michelle says:

    Couldn’t be more jealous – I’d name her Stella!

  13. Pamela says:

    Soooo Jealous! But so happy for you! There is one near my house I stalk all the time, I keep asking my husband to stop one day and see if they want to sell it because it never moves….He has a 24 foot motorcycle trailer, so why can’t I have my Chica Wagon? Some of my best childhood memories are of travelling with my grandparents in theirs when I was a kid. Especially to the beach! I can’t wait to see what you do with it! You’ll always have somewhere to stay now and haul plenty of fabulous finds in when you go to markets! Definately has to have a bit of that MPG flair! Sooooo going to show this to my hubs now and drop a few hints again…..

  14. Jen Osborn says:

    totally AMAZING!

    Larry & I have been talking about trying to find one of these SCAMPs:

    My kids are completely camped out so we are dreaming of a little camper for just the two of us and doing something fun and incredible with it together.

    What a lucky girl you are! Live this dream up, Momma, you totally deserve it! I’m SUPER excited to see what you do with it :)

  15. Vanessa says:

    So cute!! Cant what
    See what you do!! How about
    Gertrude! Gertie
    Or Trudie!!! Xxoo

  16. Lee Ann G. says:

    Wow! I can’t wait to see how you decorate your new gem.
    The Bette Boop or the Annie Oakley or Silver Sassy the Esmeralda
    Or ….Beauty …or …Belle….or Samantha
    this is fun! I’m probably not much help though!.

  17. Lara says:

    Thanks for all of the great name ideas, girls!!! Loving so many of them. I will be sure to post the “in-progress” pics.

    hugs to all of you!!!

  18. So happy that you joined the club…. I am completely in love with our “villa”….. You are gonna have so much fun in “her”…. Hope we can meet on the road sometime soon. She is a beauty… So happy for you… ox

  19. LOVE it! Love those Airstreams— and you can have an Airstream and be a Sister on the Fly! Looking forward to Photography Retreat in January here in Texas.

  20. Shar says:

    I say name her “LUCY”! Cause I just had a flash of Lucille Ball coming out of that thing with her little head scarf on and red curls peeking out!!! Keep us posted what you do!

    PS Ricky is out front with the Bongos!

  21. Beth says:

    Count me among the masses that simmer with barely concealed jealousy over the beauty and majesty of your shiny new lady. How about “Ligeia” for her name from Poe. She has in a way died and is now coming back from that death as something new. Good luck with the camper renovation!
