As I said before, Oakmoon would be hitting the road sometime this year! It's become quite an obsession of mine since deciding I had to have a Vardo last year. Sadly, practicality has insisted that a Vardo isn't an option (for now!) So I began looking at motorised alternatives. Quite a few vans have been scrutinised and discarded for many reasons. Too expensive, too much work, too far to travel! Suddenly, this little dear popped onto my screen. A scant few miles from my house, a very reasonable price and not too much structural work needed. Saying that, however, she's not exactly beautiful, but to my eyes she's everything :D (If a little over large in our driveway!!!)
In time, I hope to make her beautiful inside and out, but for now, we all keep looking out the window at her and marvelling :D
Last weekend saw the Oakmoon gazeebo arrive at another Green Fair. It was very different to the last one and I at least broke even. Strangely I sold more of my tie dye baby clothes than anything else! My friend J (pictured below) did very well with her delightful owls and heart mobiles, so in all I'd consider it a success. The tie dye garments will soon be appearing in my Etsy shop under the title of 'Every Day Fae'. The name came from the idea that we could all do with a little magic in our lives and dressing to please ourselves and others is a good way to do this.
Every Day Fae Baby Grows :D
And little skirts for girls or women.
and little fae pets, worn out by my hectic weekend. Well, they do supply the inspiration :D
Edited to add:
My dear (big, old) van is now relishing a lack of filth and would surely have cost so much more if her owner had spent a whole day simply scrubbing. Tomorrow I'll treat her to a half tank of petrol and go for a little drive :D The fabric has been purchased and will be installed soon. The curtains have been boiled and some have even fallen prey to the tie dye vat :D She will at least be interesting to look at :D
