Single white female seeks fun loving people...

She got her hair done, is sporting a new wardrobe, applied her makeup and mascara, and is ready for a night on the town! Ladies and gentlemen, come inside to meet the new Doris...




She's not all the way full yet, but most of what you see in this post will be for sale, sans the light fixtures, window curtains, and bedding.

Her dining room..featuring original turquoise and tan floral fabric seat cushions, lace curtains, and delicate mini-chandelier purchased at last month's Vintage Market. The brown light fixture above the table is the original gas lamp.







Her kitchen...original paint on stove, hood and refrigerator and original counters and backsplash. She's outfitted with vintage rotary dial phone, irontstone dishes, crewel work prints, wicker, lace and iron.



Her boudoir...the bed is original. She's covered with a lace curtain, leopard throw and floral print pillows.


Dual light fixtures are located on both sides of the bed, and each contain a separate night light behind the shade too!


This darling hand stitched dresser scarf was a gift from my good friend Judy at The Empty Attic for my birthday last year...unfortunately it's not for sale!

Bedroom window is covered with vintage lace doilie scarf. The magazine rack is original to the camper.

I love this print...it's for sale!


Her privacy curtain!


Her hand-painted floor (which still needs distressing and finish coat, but I was so excited to show her to you I haven't gotten to it yet)... 




Her view out the door...

 Her yard...(we just moved her today--still plan to broaden her patio, add more plants, vintage fencing and canopy)...



She'd like you to come sit a spell...


And in case you don't remember our fair lady before her extreme makeover...





Not a bad for a 45 year gal from Forest City, Iowa, huh?

Stop by to see her at the Nellie's Barn Sale, June 15 & 16th...she'll be waiting for you with open arms.

Oh my gosh, how perfectly YOU! She turned out lovely. And I think she's parked in just the spot. I really like it there!

Blessings... Polly

Thanks, Polly. Yes, she's perfect there...just have to put some finishing touches on the surrounding garden area before the sale!

Just found your blog. We just finished a vintage camper. She's adorable also. All white inside..beadboard for walls, white cushions, lace curtains, a touch of burlap. I Love, Barbie jer also. Fine job on your gal! Congratulations.

Aunt Barb...thanks for the compliments on Doris. Yes, we love her. I'd love to see photos of yours.

Just found your site by following breadcrumbs on Facebook. I have recently purchased a 1965 Forester and yours is the only other Forester that I've seen! I'm new to vintage camping and love looking at your pics to see the similarities and differences! Would love to pick your brain on places that you have found for restoration parts, supplies and information in general on the Foresters!
