Argosy Journey

by Rene on June 11, 2011

I am so happy to welcome Terrah as a guest to share a bit about her Argosy Journey thus far.

I have to admit when I saw Terrah’s Argosy from the outside…it was love at first sight!!

I can’t wait to see how she finishes the inside!

Welcome Terrah-

Hi, I am a girl with an awesome trailer. However, it wasn’t always so awesome.

 I bought it on a quick whim thinking I could buy it, move it and live in it,

but nothing is ever as it seems. It was a mess in the inner workings. So after a month

 long simple renovation for the basics, I was able to take it and live in it with

my 6 dogs for 8 months. During that time my water broke, my fridge stopped

working and I only had a stand-alone air conditioner. It was like camping and a

little difficult at times, but very educational on so many levels.

Over the winter, my dad and I gutted the whole interior and re built it and hand

sanded (air sander) the exterior in preparation for painting. It was a lot of blood,

sweat and tears, but I learned so much about how things work which is necessary

when living in it. I love having the Argosy, because they were only made during

limited years and having a painted airstream allows her to be awesome eye candy

on the road. I would recommend people know what they are getting into before

thinking of renovating; it is a lot of work, but totally worth it.

The inside is coming along beautifully ….from this
to this ….  Looking forward to checking in on Terrah’s Argosy journey from time to time.
Here is a link to her flickr photos, and her awesome Etsy store DriftwoodJones…  
Thank you so much Terrah!!!

Vagabond trailer

by Rene on June 2, 2011

The pictures of this vintage Vagabond trailer are fantastic.

The photographer took these amazing interior and exterior photo’s

while staying in Mafia, Texas at El Cosmico.

El Cosmico opened in the fall of 2009. The aim was to build a community

in a creative and sustainable space. El Cosmico offers accommodations in several

renovated vintage trailers, reinvented yurt structures called eco shacks,

a traditional 22 ft. diameter Sioux teepee, and a number of tent campsites.

Thank you for sharing your beautiful photo’s Lucidist!

The Airstream Ranch

by Rene on May 29, 2011

If you’ve ever driven near Tampa…down I-4  in Florida, you’ve probably 

noticed a crazy row of Airstreams taking  a nose dive in the ground. 

It’s called the Airstream Ranch and here’s a little video that shows the

building process. I came across Jessica Bennett Photography and love the idea 

she and a couple had for an engagement photo shoot at the ranch.

The photos came out fantastic!! Check out the wedding photos of the same couple

 in the next post above….. Yes, they include an Airstream. :)

VW vintage van cookies

by Rene on February 16, 2011

Sorry for the long break…. I couldn’t even remember how to access my acct.  Isn’t that crazy!!

I saw these cookies made by I am baker and thought they were the cutest things!

I am baker made these adorable cookies for a little guy named Finn and his first birthday!
I love this and I couldn’t help share the sweetness! It reminds me of when my bubbies
was a wee little man. I don’t think you can ever discribe what it feels like to love
someone sooo much!

Look at this picture of Finn in the drivers seat!! How cute is that!!
