"The Rustic Rose"

Welcome.....The Rustic Rose!

 I sold my 1961 Fireball (3 yrs. ago) and had major regrets but life has taken me on a new path....and I am enjoying the ride. It has led me on an exciting adventure....a wonderful story is unfolding.
I love my job...I love my life...I love my Family and I love being married to my "BOY"!
We did not have vacation time for a year on our 1st Anniversary, we will be headed to Round Top, Texas...home of the "JUNK GYPSIES".
We will be traveling in our..NEW TO US....vintage, 1988 Terry, Resort Travel Trailer. She is different from my Fireball...who never was given a name..I am excited to Glamp this Gal... in Romantic Prairie style with a Rustic Western, Country theme....and lots of RoSeS!
I have started collecting and it is always so fun to purchase items that will create a "home away from home" or even our Guest cottage at "Green Acres".
We will not be repainting her....because she matches my husbands truck...AS IS.
I will however...have a small design painted on her....something like this.

I am so Happy to be back in the world of Glamping and  now I can FINALLY join the "Sisters on the Fly"!

UPDATE......I am Sister #4268

XOXO, Sheri

Our Vintage....Country wedding! 10~4~13

WE are now....Mr. & Mrs. Tate! My wedding and reception was everything that I had envisioned and more.
My dress was a $7 thrift shop find!

It was perfectly imperfect.....I loved every element. It was a family affair and it was an event to remember..FOREVER! The decor, the food....everything was ME and a reflection of us and the life we are building together. My groom was in on every last detail..he didn't always get where I was going but he was along for the ride and even he was impressed by the final result.

The ceremony and reception were held in our back yard at "Green Acres"...although this is a rental property, we hope to be able to purchase it one day.

I own everything in the pictures and we did not rent any props nor have a wedding planner or professional photographer. We purchased items at Walmart, Kmart, Savemart grocery store for mini roses and white pumpkins..and Vons grocery store for red roses used in big ball jar vases. I was able to find perfect items at thrift red rose plates and wheat plates....all burlap banners were ordered on ebay from a great barrels and old doors from craigslist and then I incorporated items from around my home.

 I was thrilled that all of our guests had a great time,enjoyed the food and commented on how amazing our decor was....My daughter made all the signs...I had the items to use and she personalized it based on sayings and songs that I chose.
