Annie - A 1977 11ft Millard York @my_tiny_caravan
Annie is a true blue (and aqua) Aussie gal. I wanted to decorate her in her colours, but with an Aussie twist. Nearly everything Christmassy is directed at snow and arctic conditions - yes I know that's where santa does his business but it's where he takes that business that matters most . . . right ?
So off to Spotlight . . . .
I found some ready made bunting in pretty fabric depicting australian flora and fauna - perfect !
There was enough bunting in the panel to cover about 10 ft, but Annie is only 7 x 4. There were quite a few oranges, yellows and reds in the selection. After I'd taken them away there was just enough blues and greens with a few reds thrown in to make a nice banner across the back wall.
After making the banner, I was kinda leaning towards the blue fabric with the birds on it.
I went online and sure enough there was fabric and it was ON SALE !!!!! Not much left in stock anywhere so I grabbed 2 metres and it arrived 3 days later. Thankyou Spotlight 🤩
2 metres was enough for 2 sets of curtains, a placemat/handtowel and a cushion.
Not much for kicking up our heels and celebrating so we downsized into one tiny caravan.
Our own pyrotechnics display. I actual lit sparklers inside the van and burnt 2 holes in a placemat (from the match not the sparkler) and nearly died of sulphur poisoning . . . . . not really, but Shane had his fingers ready to dial 000. The van smelled terrible for the next 24 hrs. The things we do . . . .😲😥

love your trailer- I'm currently in the middle of a renovation, might have to steal the little shelf on the outside

Where did you get your lovely fabric for the annex? Did you make these yourself?

What a wonderful story and pictures to wake up to. The camper is wonderful and the park is perfect! Love the spoiled little doggy too. Keep making memories!
