Our Home

20130716-205834.jpgWe had a little bit of time after an early set up when we first got to the East MacDonnell Ranges, (posts about our time here still to come!) so we finally got a chance to get some photos of Karen Camper all set up before we messed her all up by  living in her (and we had done a little re-organising in Alice Springs).  So here are at last some photos of ‘Our Home’ in her most photo worthy state to date, she’s not flash but we love her and she has served us well so far!

Our Home

I have to say a huge thank you to my Mum who is the very clever one who did all the beautiful crotcheting, the gorgeous bunting,the  caterpillar rug which we have all snuggled under during the last few weeks of freezing nights, treat tins, our great floor mats and made our lovely kid’s cushions – we were sooooooo spoilt!  There are also lots of other lovely gifts in the photos from our friends and the little bits and pieces really remind us of the wonderful people in our lives and make ‘our home’ all the more, our camper of love!  Thank you to you all!! xoxoxoxoxo

Below is just a short video of what the camper actually looks like with us living in it!  Now, as the saying goes;

“Although you’ll find our house a mess, come in, sit down, converse.  It doesn’t always look like this: Some days its even worse!”

    Jess, great job making this your home, it has a nice feeling of family in it, not just a camper. Welcoming and colourful with heaps of happy laughter. This is an adventure.

  3. Awesome – it’s home 🙂

    looks soooo cosy!! and even before i read below it screams of our mother!!! Mum certainly has a way of turning a ‘house’ into a loving home that’s for sure!! Even when she’s not there! xo

  5. I love all the hand made colour! Beautiful 🙂

  6. You’ve inspired me to finish my daughters crotchet blanket! I told her it would be finished before we left Tassie, I’ll now set a goal to finishing it before we leave the station 🙂
