Passions of an Odd Chick

Gypsy Wagon

I'm pretty sure my daughter and my Sweet Farmer thinks I'm going through a mid-life crisis. I just bought myself a 1963 Shasta trailer. She is mint condition and ready for the road. There was something about her that called to me, deep in my gypsy soul and so I brought her home to Krantz Farms. I have big plans for her during the winter - maybe some words painted on her, like "Passions of an Odd chick" or "Adventures of an Odd Chick" in a cute funky font with a flying chick here and there, or maybe I'll leave her plain and buff her up like a shiny tin can. Either way, I'll prepare her for an adventure soon.

She reminds me of a cozy little play house or gypsy wagon or a quiet, zen place to refresh.

 She needs very little really. She looks like a happy place, doesn't she?
 
I added some art that speaks to me. And to my critics. :)

I added some of my own art. Who knows? Maybe I'll sell my art on the road.
It's not fancy but it's good enough for me.
I like little compact, efficient spaces.
My new little puppy, Gurdy, will be ready to travel with me by Spring.
 
I think there will be some good living coming from this space.
And some good stories to share on my blog. If you have any good ideas for my little Shasta, please share!

I can see why you fell in love! What a great little home on wheels. I'm thinking you could travel to all the art fairs, a gypsy artist and her caravan. Got to love it!

WOW, Peggy...LOVE your new traveling wheels! A mini retreat. It's very sweet on the inside too--very cozy. I've always wanted one of those brightly painted wooden gypsy caravans. Maybe one day! Happy Trails! ;o) ((HUGS))

Absolutely adorable! I've become smitten with such things of late, as well. I love perusing the used rv/campers for sale ads EVERY chance I get. You found yourself a beaut. I can't wait to hear the stories you'll tell.

I LOVE your new passion. It is decorated so appealingly and of course you should take your artwork on the road. I'm so glad to have found your blog.
