Gina Gets Dressed Up
Here is the dinette area before the new curtains and cushions and before I hit the thrift shops. Not too exciting, huh?
And here it is after a bit of shopping and staging:
Then I went to town decorating the kitchen area with hopefully era-appropriate items. I don’t really remember much about 1972 since I was in junior high and very self-absorbed. Who at that age paid much attention to home decorating? One thing I do remember is the acrylic grapes Mom used to have on the end table, but I haven’t been able to find a bunch of those yet!
No kitchen is complete without one of those religious tea towel calendars. I love how this one has the months crossed out in red marker! I was amazed that I actually found a 1972 calendar perfect for my ’72 Gina.
It was my lucky day as I found a macrame towel holder in the perfect colors! Did someone unload their Aunt Bloatie’s kitchen on the thrift stores just before I got there?
The trailer is ready for vintage camping. Now all we need is a day or two with sunshine and we can hit the road for a little fun.
