Finding a new look for a blog feels similar to buying a pair of good shoes. You have to try them on and walk around in them for a while to see if the fit is right.
Having said that, I just redesigned my blog and I am waiting to see if it’s a good fit, so please bear with me.
I also realized that there hasn’t been a Frolic (vintage camper) update in quite a long time. For some reason, I don’t feel like we got a lot accomplished last month in the camper. But, here are a few important accomplishments.
We hooked up gas to the original hot water heater and found the orifice was corroded closed and was preventing us from lighting it. Hubby located a new one and changed it. He also gave the burner a thorough cleaning. We now have a working hot water heater. Yea!!!
Along with the making sure we have hot water, we also made sure the stove and oven were in good working order. And here is what we found.
Both the stove and oven lit without any trouble. Yea, again!!!
And do you remember the ugly wheel well that stood out and needed to be covered?
That has been taken care of as well. Since this picture, I have primed and painted the storage bench and lid. There is still a bit of trim work to be done, along with a cushion to be made. Progress is slow but steady.
I’ve also been busy looking for vintage items to put in the camper. So far, I’ve found a cute vintage coffee percolator at an estate sale for $3.00, and a vintage dish towel for .10 cents at a local thrift store.
From the 13th – 16th of this month there is going to be a vintage camper rally at Sampson State Park. The Pink Paradise will have to sit this one out, but we are excited to see the other vintage campers that will be on display there.
And there you have it. A new look for The Joy of Caking, and a vintage camper update.
To see all of the posts related to the restoration process of the frolic camper so far, just type the word Frolic, Pink Paradise, or vintage camper in The Joy of Caking’s search engine found on the right side of the page.
