Do you remember Kizzy? I googled it this morning and can you believe it the BBC first aired it in 1976! My curiosity was sparked because I found this gorgeous card yesterday. I loved that series and ever since I have had a hankering for my very own little caravan hidden away in a remote corner of the garden.
This image is from my favourite childhood story and I would gaze at this for hours imagining what it would be like inside the caravans. My Mum always bought me such beautifully illustrated books and I have kept most of them.
The first time I went to Sarah Raven's garden at Perch Hill I was stunned and green with envy when I saw her wonderful Caravan. I think technically this one is a shepherd's hut. I love the green paint. I am just as desperate to see inside this one as I was my illustrated ones!
I couldn't resist this card from the same range. I know, I know, quit the sweet pea obsession! How gorgeous is the paint on the stool, all scuffed and worn and dont even get me started on the cushion, I wish I was clever enough to embroider with knots and ribbons.
I love this interior, I kept it from a magazine article about hideaways. This was actually inside one of those 1950's motorhomes. I am just going to throw myself face down onto those cushions!
