Home TWEET Home!

Louis Dean and I have been hard at work in our camper these days!

 It is a Fleetwood RV

A 2000 model in which Louis Dean lived for 4 years.
Apparently he had parked it under a tree from which the rain went right in the vent behind the refrigerator. A section of the floor was badly damamged.

Not to worry!! I have NEVER seen anything Louis Dean can't fix!!

The camper will be sturdier than the day it was built!

He just has to take a break every now and then......

While HE was working - I was cleaning and 'fluffing!'
I didn't get to the wallpaper border to the left of the little sofa so
that's on my schedule for tomorrow.
That's about as far LEFT as I can go before LD finishes what he's doing.

I love my pretty little corner!

My new pillows from Hobby Lobby make me smile!
I bought two new bed pillows but ended up putting them in some denim cases I already had and tucking them in at the corners of the loveseat. I will buy MORE for the bed next time I'm out! I do so love pillows......all kinds of pillows!

I like the valence I came up with using leftover denim from the cushions
(which came from Pottery Barn curtains given to me by my friend who has triplets!)
and I added a jean band with raffia bows. I have been using raffia from this HUGE basket I have had for YEARS!! Would you believe my basket is nearly EMPTY??

I was bound and determined to use some vintage pins and finally found THE perfect spot for my daisy! Yes, way back then (60's) I was a flower child!

Now, lest I leave you with the impression that the camper is habitable -

This is to the right and in front of the seating area!
Stuff is stacked everywhere!

And THIS will one day (hopefully in the near future!) be my cozy little kitchen!
We have a ways to go......

But before I close I MUST show you a few recent pictures of my GRAND Quads!!
They are the reason we are doing this camper re do anyway!!

Logan is the final one to be moved to a crib!
Love that zebra blankie!

Big Boy Harrison!!

Trystan! They look so big in clothes!!

Kailey!! I am missing these babies!

Closing with this final picture of Logan......
(because you couldn't really SEE her in that crib shot!)

It's been a productive day around here working on our
'Home TWEET Home!'

Hope it's been a good Monday in YOUR neck of the woods!!

You and Louis Dean are absolutely amazing. That camper is going to be so cute that your whole family is going to lining up to use it when you don't need it.
The babies are getting so nice and big. I smile every time I think of them.

That home away from home is gonna look fabulous when you two get done with it! I'm so excited to see. I love the little corner you have done. That quilt on the back of the sofa looks beautiful. I absolutely LOVE quilts and afghans. I have tons of them and can't ever get enough :)

The babies are growing so much. Everytime I see your post about them it makes me so excited for Little Annalee :)

Hope your week is off to a fantastic start friend!

Thank you for the RV documentary! I love watching what you're making and can't wait to see the finished product- and thank you for an update on the quads!

You are really getting a lot of work done on your home! It is looking good. Getting ready for those beautiful babies. sandie

bj said...

Great Scott...I can't believe how much these babies have grown. You can almost SEE them growing. Wow...they all look awesome.

Your camper is going to be so cute. I am excited for you. We are looking for one of those popup luck yet but we'll keep looking.


Vee said...

It's always wonderful to see those beautiful children! They really are growing like crazy. Amber looks so beautiful visiting them...I'm sure that there's nowhere she'd rather be.

The camper...oh boy howdy! You've been working hard. I can't wait to see it all done and ready for life down the road. Such a cute little home away from home it'll be.

Mummers said...

Love it! Looking like home tweet home and you & LD will so enjoy your little get away not being far from the Squad!

"Auntie" sezzzzzz... said...

You both, are doing beautifully! He is a super fixer upper. And you are a super fluffffffer-uppppper. What you've done, is sooooooo cute!

Cute pics of the Quads. But here I go again, being Ol' Auntie. Who doesn't want to put babies in big-clothes, till...... Mmmmm... When they turn 2 maybe???? -giggggles- No! Just kidding. But I do so love babies to be babies.

I had to steel myself to not pout, when my d-i-law put little "Gabe" in tiny overalls. -gigggles-

But now, he looks super cute in everything. :-) Oh golly, imagine keeping quads in little ones clothing! :-))))))))))


Sandra said...

so creative on the denim valance. looks like you will have a great RV to go visit the babies. how far will you have to drive to visit them? my hubby can fix anything to

Anonymous said...

Love your fix-it-up camper. How will that work, will you stay in an RV park while visiting?


Awwwwwwwwww, sweetness times four!! And the work on your camper looks like it's going to be so super. And a fun home away from home. mentioned that you have a wall of vintage photos and portraits....if you share them, or have EVER shared them, direct me if you will. I love looking at family photos from long ago.

Happy 4th.

I love the finishing touches you're putting into the camper, it really is going to be Home Tweet Home!

Excellent work!

I had to laugh when I saw the Peanut on Logan's cap. too cute.
I need to give you some of the raffia I have. I've had mine for years too.
