1959 Pathfinder & a Gynormous Bird of Paradise

Friends, you are all soooo cute!!! Have I told you lately how much I adore all of you? Thanks for reliving my ticket debacle with me & for each one of you who answered any combo of my silly questions, I will be contacting you for your mailing address & sending you out some love along with one of my Vintage Fabric Flower Brooches...Yeah Friends!!!
Here's where we stay when we're in Hollywood, in our 1959 Pathfinder Travel Trailer. It's our home away from home, our pride & joy & look how nicely it tucks into our clients drive-way.
Now, when I stand in the doorway of our trailer & look out into this lush, vintage, CA yard, I have the delight of looking at this truly Gynormous Bird of Paradise...it's amazing!!! You can't tell the size of this beauty from my photo, but it towers over our trailer & is taller then the owner's house. How long would this plant have to be growing here in order to get this big? The house was built in 1924, could it have been an original planting? Just too cool...I had to share this with you!

And I have one more bit of exciting news before I go...drum roll please, I am about to have my 100th friend follow me here on vintagesusie & wings, how fun & awesome is that!! Looks like we are in the market for a really GREAT 100th Follower Give-Away, my mind is already mulling over the grand gift possibilities! Stay tuned friends...I can't wait to celebrate with all of you!

XOXO

Your scrumptious trailer certainly caught my eye. I have such a "thing" for vintage trailers. It's beautiful.

Does your hubby work in the movie industry by chance? Mine does. Wondered if they knew each other. Sometime, on one of your trips down from the mountains, you'll have to visit all the antique stores in Pasadena and South Pasadena. And if you do, we can meet for lunch or go to Zinnia's - a funky cool altered art supply shop. It would be great to meet you in person.

I always love coming to see your very cool, lovely, fun digital pieces. I love the three muses tea cup piece! But, I love them all.
