Day 5 - Something You Hope To Do In Your Life

This prompt sounds an aweful lot like my Life List, which I've posted on my beauty blog, Made-Up In America. I hope to do a lot of things in my life, and as long as my luck and God's grace holds out, I've still got a while to accomplish them!  Let's keep this light and fluffy, given the intensity of my latest posts. 

One day I hope to own a vintage travel trailer!  No, not an Airstream - I want something more unique and harder to find - a Spartan Spartanette trailer!

One day, I tell you, ONE DAY!
Spartan made a huge trailer called the Manor, but I would be happy with a little Spartanette.  I love the warmth of a honey-colored maple interior.  I would make it my own little vintage paradise.  I'd completely deck it out in bright, primary colors - reds, yellows, greens, blues.  I would have cheery vintage Mexican print linens and bakelite-handled flatware in the little kitchen.  Tufted chenille spreads would cover the beds, with souvenir pillows.  I'd find kitschy little travel souvenirs and art deco pieces to decorate the living room.

I could see Bill and I trailering this up to the mountains on the western slope, pulling up by a creek and setting our chairs out on a warm summer's day, just enjoying the day.  I long for leisurely days with my husband, just soaking up the sun.
