Gypsy Love

Can't get gypsy caravans out of my head. If I can't have a big one maybe I could have a doll sized one lol. I have no idea how to work with wood, what am I thinking?

I remember when I was little living in England I was always really frightened of the gypsies and I think this was fueled by a very superstitious grandmother and mother. When the gypsies knocked on your door selling their wares you had to buy something otherwise they would put a curse on you lol. I remember they were always very dirty looking and they used to sleep under their caravans not in them even in the middle of freezing cold North England winters. They had dogs called Lurchers, I think they are a mix between greyhounds and other types of dogs, my aunty used to have one. Looking back now I can see they weren't scary, they just lived a different lifestyle to us.

Getting back to the caravans I just love the colours and the decoration. They look so happy and whimsical. And don't we all need a bit of whimsy in our lives :o)

I leave you with your daily dose of whimsy <3


  1. I adore Gypsy caravans! My mom is Eastern European, and I have a wee bit of Gypsy blood in me. My mom once told me about how she tried to run away with the Gypsies when she was a kid, but her mom found out and dragged her back home.

  2. Oh yaya thanks for stopping by!! :D

    I am not surprised you have gypsy blood in you, even though I have never actually seen you I get that untamed, gypsy vibe from you just through your blog posts :o)

  3. Hi, I would like to use that picture but I need it in a higher resolution (at least 300 dpi) so I was wondering if you are the owner or if you might have the contact of the owner to see if he can sell me the picture in a higher resolution.
    Thank you.

  5. Mira - I am not the owner of the pic I found it on the net.
