Loving my camper: 9/13

We've been in our camper a couple of months now and it is so much fun to make it home. 

We spent the last year out of town, where hubby is working, staying in a guest house that I couldn't really make mine. 

This camper, however, is ALL MINE!

In the kitchen we added a shelf for utensils, and a shelf (from IKEA). 

 We added a cool metal shelf in the window (found in Colorado), and I rewired the frogs to the stick (Hobby Lobby), and changed out the dragonfly wind chime to jewels (from Colorado). The stained glass butterfly is from a local thrift store. The plant on the this shelf is a prayer plant. 
I'm gonna add strawberry begonia later.

My kitchen corner plants are super happy.

The blue pot has all kinds of cool plants crammed in, and it looks great.

There is a preg onion, and a couple of sedums all needing repotting. 
But they are fine for now.

Sweet sweet hubby picked some cool rain lilies from our yard.
 (bout all that is going on out there)
                                                           My kitchen!!  Love it. 

My 'command center' it taking shape.

Found this at Big Lots on clearance, spray painted it purple. 

Love it. 
 The mess o stuff in this corner has been replaced with order and pretties.  Purple pot is full of goodies: Swiss cheese ivy, var spider plant, snake plant, 2 kinds of heart shaped ivy, var ivy, 3 kinds of Chinese evergreen.  White pot is a dumb cane.

Bird wind chime=Pier One; red & purple buckets, sun/moon/stars, foam orange pumpkin=Dollar Tree, talking raven=Big Lots; blanket, pumpkin bucket, Christ plaque=thrift store; small light up pumpkins, flowers=Walmart.  We are all ready for Halloween. 

In the bedroom I have cool, crazy (for me) colors in the bedding.  I decided I was only buying MY colors.  And my color is purple.  Makes me happy. 

This WAS the patio layout, but I was afraid it would make it hard for a lawnmower guy.
AND hubby's grill was just a little way TOO close to my camper.
 So I moved things around a bit.

 My goat planter, Donut, has been jazzed up with red/white/blue lea, flower on her horn,  four Shepard hooks, glow in the dark balls and lantern, Flo the flamingo, wind chimes, and a flower stake.

 This planter is full of stuff for home, peacock flower ground cover, apple mint, choc mint, and this super cool Asian Jasmine.  The new leaves on it are white, pink variegated looking like flowers.
 We have a slope back home I'm going to try this on.
My grow pots are just hanging on.  Guess I need to feed them.  Rose moss, yellow bells, orange trumpet, globe basil have all done well this summer.

Our seeded Bermuda grass is coming up, and the old Bermuda plants are enjoying the water. 
Might actually have a nice lawn.  Right now its all weed and stickers.  SO many stickers. 
Some pretty weeds we have here: horse herb, pigeon berry, lantana, pink clover, 3 little live oak trees. 
Our landlord just planted  new baby Live Oak trees . 
We have had a little cooler weather, and some much needed rain.  Welcome Autumn.
