Let's go to the Shop Hop! My Weekend in Paradise.

Save the date November 2. Make Mine Pink will be hosting an exciting shop hop with prizes, prizes, prizes.
I spent the week end preparing for the shop hop at my friend Michael's beautiful bit of paradise.

This week end I spent house sitting. I thought I would share pictures of his critters and the wonderful back yard! First is Jack. Jack was at my side every minute and Launi was way to busy of a girl to worry about me. She is as sweet as can be but very independent. Tommy is a really BIG kitty. He slept with me every night. A true cuddly kitten.
Michael's yard is a touch of Hawaii in Southern California. The pool was amazing and I swam every day!

The last picture is the vintage motor home parked in Michael's back yard. It's sooooo Lucy on the road. I would love to use it as my shop. Stock it with all my vintage treasures and become a traveling saleswoman! Have a great week. blessings, Lilli

In the 70's our family owned a red VW Bus and a yellow one, oh yea an a black VW beetle! I love them. That picture brought back fond memories, thank you.

Your friend's backyard is indeed paradise.

Love those sweet little furry pets too.

I had an orange one!! it was so amazing, I loved it. Had a sink, an icebox, even a commode. A dining table that pulled up, seats flipped down as beds. I would love to be that carefree again. Stop by for me if you take off, girlfriend!

Ok, my parents had a VW Bus too. They drove across country in it with me in the portable cradle. Crazy! Looks like a lovely house and the critters are very cute!
