Back in Elkhart...repairs and foo-foo?

We enjoyed our brief stay over in Shipshewana.....lots of good food and some fun shopping.  Yesterday we headed back to Elkhart and will be having some repairs made to our rig over the course of the next few days.  

I really did enjoy looking around at all the gift shops in Shipshewana.  I used to own a gift shop in Lafayette and the one thing I miss the most is setting up displays and changing over the shop for each season.  Fall being one of my favorites!  I decided there was no reason why I shouldn't carry on that tradition in my fifth wheel and add a little fall "foo-foo"...have a look at what I did......
This is the "living room" side of my kitchen cabinets......nice little burst of fall color, don't ya think!
Here is the view from my kitchen side
Added a little "pop" around my lamp...look close you'll see a little squirrel peeking out from the ivy.
And, of course I had to add some fall color to my table centerpiece.  I'm very careful about using candles in our fifth wheel, but this one smells so good I just could not resist.  Now, I know what you are thinking....every time we move I have to pack this stuff up.  Well, the ones up around the cabinet are wired on so they travel just fine.  The centerpiece and lamp do need to be stowed, but it only adds an extra 5 minutes to the routine and it is worth it to me.  It makes me happy!


  1. You do have the magic touch with just a few decorations. Really looks good. I used to like to decorate but I seem to have lost whatever it is that brings out that decorating trait.

  2. If it makes you happy, then it's worth the extra time!

  3. your decorations look beautiful! i agree, even if you have to pack it up during the drive, it's worth it for the comfort and happiness it brings the rest of the time!

  4. Your decorations look awesome... I decorate inside of Tassie too... After all they are our homes right?
    Have fun & Travel safe

  5. If it makes you happy ... then that's what counts; me ... I'm of the "but then I have to stow it all ilk," so no foo foos.
