The little one has been sittin' pretty in my driveway for a week now.  This is frills, plain as can be, but a diamond in the rough!  She measures in body 9ft. 6 in. (called a 10 ftr).  She is only 6 ft  4 in.  deep.  A little rounded in the middle but has strong bones!

This is how we bought her.......mostly gutted inside with this black and white decor.  They were going for a little retro-modern look.

No, you are NOT seeing things!!   Pretty funny? Huh?  This is going, going, GONE!  Of course, a new window will look FABULOUS!

Another view from the front door.  Thank goodness, I can live without this........

Now here's the FUNNY part.............I went to the license bureau to get tags.  Went through line, was asked a few questions, then paid for the plates.  The gentleman then proceeded to hand me the plate in a covered plastic sleeve.  I smilingly took it and left the building.  I got in my pick-up truck, and then decided to look at my NEW LICENSE PLATE for my "Sweetie".  This is what I saw.......................

Can you believe it!!  No, these ARE NOT personalized plates.  I thought, is this a sign??  My campers name is SUE!  Lol!  
I know 4 Sues!!!   My sister n love is a Sue....these should be on her camper!!  Who ever heard of putting a persons name on a non-personalized plate??

So the plates were put on....then my 21 yr. old son came home and I  told him to go look at the new plates.  He chuckled and said to me........I guess Ken (hubby) will be known as "The Boy named Sue" when he pulls the camper!  

I think I may get these changed??   Anyway, I will be taking pics of improvements of the girl and showing them from time to time.  We are not doing major renovations........just fixing whats important and decorating a little!  Have a wonderful and blessed week~~~Roxie


  1. She is so cute!! Can't wait to see what you do to it! Looks like a blank canvas. Good luck!


  2. Oh I love the little trailer and I love the SUE plate it takes a strong man to be called Sue:) B

  3. 'Sue' is so adorable and how crazy to get that plate! It will be fun adding your touches to her, can't wait to see what's next.

    You won my giveaway, congratulations!!! Email me your info and I'll get the pizza book ordered and it can be on its way.

    Have a lovely week, my friend. xo

  4. Sue is a little cutie! You might want to stick with the name...I think it's a sign. My husband would for sure keep the air conditioner but I'd agree with you and go for a window. Have fun!

  5. Hi Roxie,
    I think Sue is the name. This is a sign!!!! I agree the ugly air conditioner needs to go and a nice window put in. This is in great shape and I know you will have it fixed up so cute. Good Luck. Have fun with her.

  6. She could always be "sweet Sue".....I think that's a song....:) Love her....can't wait to see what you do with her....:)

  7. it's super cute!! have fun fixing her up!!

  8. Congratulations Roxie!!!! I like the name Sue, it's destiny ☺

  9. Hi Roxie, "Sweet Sue" is mu choice too. She seems to be in good shape...hurrah for you. A new front window for sure. There are many people who have done just that to their trailers, a travesty in my opinion. I see that you will have fun, She's tiny, cute, and just right for you. I hope to see a post soon...luv Sharon

  10. Looks like "Sweet Sue" will be alot of fun to fix up this summer. Is she going to be your prayer closet? Nice place to run to to be alone with God :)

  11. This is so cute, Roxie! I love seeing these little campers made over. There is so much inspiration on Pinterest. Can't wait to see how you fix her up. How funny about the license plate. It does look like it's the name Sue with maybe a birth month and date. How many plates will have SUE though before it moves on to another letter grouping? I didn't realize you were actually in the same area. I'm in Warren County.

  12. lol How crazy?! Love the plates!!!!!

  13. How very funny ... you wanted a name for her ... what is it they say about being careful what you wish for, LOL.
    She's a cutie,
    Connie :)
