Caravan photo-shoot...














The day before we left, our amazingly talented photographer friend Rohan Anderson came over and took some pics of the caravan. I like to think of them as after the renos-before the fun photos. There's more, I'll pop them on here over the next week.

And thanks so much you guys for all your fabulous caravan adventure well wishes, they never fail to make me smile.

See ya!

    we will all be thinking (dont mind me speaking for everyone, what a cheek hey?) that we wish we had thought to take shots of inside our cabins and caravans in a more documentary style when on holiday.

    I CERTAINLY am, x

  15. So lovely and neat!
    1. Do you also have a picture of the van? It looks so roomy inside, I am curious to see the car from the outside.
    2. Isn't it wintertime over there in Australia? Is it usual to make a road trip when it's cold? Sorry, I am from Europe and in winter we are enjoying snow or fly away for a holiday in the sun.
    :)
    Have fun!

  36. O to travel the gypsy trail with you. the van is fabulous. Even some Enid Blytons there. A couple of cup hooks and some of that stringy curtain wire would help to keep the books on the shelf while travelling. Mum used to stick what she could in the sink from memory. Happy larking! Cherrie

  70. Those tin? cups take me back to the seventies! I wanted to make a suggestion...Spotlight does an oil cloth the looks exactly like your table cloth only that it's like vinyl. I have it on my dining table...no fuss with textas, drink spills, craft...food...and no messing with mats. It looks really retro and is the best thing I ever did to protect my table. And I only have to wipe it not wash it....good for caravanning families.

    ReplyDelete
  71. Oh my! You have created the perfect reading spot for "Put Me in the Zoo." I would have loved to see have seen more of that granny square afghan that was all folded and neatly put away.

  76. Hi just wanted to give you a brief heads up and let you know a few of the
    pictures aren't loading properly. I'm not sure why but I think its
    a linking issue. I've tried it in two different browsers and both show the same results.

  77. obviously like your web-site however you need to check the spelling on several of your posts.
    A number of them are rife with spelling issues and I find it
    very troublesome to tell the reality then again I will certainly come again again.

I do read every single comment you leave and appreciate it very much, but I should let you know that I can be a wee bit on the useless side when replying to comments, that's just me, everyday life sometimes gets in the way....so I'll apologise now, just in case.
