Holiday Images

We travelled by car...........

Then by ferry.........

Stayed in a lovely Static caravan.............

Which looked like this when we arrived.........

So .....I gave it a makeover......That's better........

We spent sunny days on the various lovely beaches.This is Ventnor ,which is so photogenic.......

The boys did loads of body boarding ............

Made sand sculptures with their cousins.......

On windy days they caught crabs.....big ones.........

and tiny ones.........

On a damp day we travelled on the steam railway...................

Third class was still pretty plush ,with lovely wood and old advertisments.....

During quiet moments I snuggled under GSB did a bit of this.........

We saw loads of vintage vehicles........

All too quickly our week on the beautiful Isle of Wight was over.

The boys brought home these.........

I brought home this........

I have since finished this pretty cushion cover which is part of my giveaway. I havn't got around to taking photos yet ,so pop back later this week for the Ta- dah and more details

  1. I love your makeover - so pretty. :)

  2. Totally great make over. We all should have a colourful GSB, bunting and crocheted pillows hidden in our suitcases when travelling. Madonna might have brought her own furniture to her hotel rooms but I find that to be a little bit to excessive... Looks like a wonderful time. Also love the colours of the fabric on those sun chairs. So retro perfect right!

  3. Excellent makeover. The holiday looked sunny and fun. My husband is very fond of the isle of Wight.

  4. Looks and sounds like you had a fab time! Great pics...I love your caravan makeover! Your WIP looks delicious! Have a lovely day! xxxxxxxxxxxxx

  5. I love what you did to the caravan, what a fantastic idea.
    Great pictures, brought back memories of our holiday last year, we stayed in Shanklin. We might go back next year, can't decude between cornwall,Norfolk or the Isle of wight.

  7. I really liked your Caravan makeover. Looks like you had a really lovely holiday. I used to have a traveller like that, am saving the pennys again so I can get another and make it into a camper for Lily and I to go and have adventures. (can't afford a VW camper van!!!!)

  8. Lovely pics!
    What a great idea to give the caravan a makeover. I love it.

  9. Looks like you have holiday memory keeper. You were able to cosy things up too and the children will always remember those special times.

  10. Oh wow I love how you transformed your caravan to home from home. I love the feel of the place you were at it looks right up my street.
