Boss Lady meets Met Monday!

Welcome to MET MONDAY! Susan always has so many different things to show when she hosts this each week. Click on the button on my sidebar & see who else is playing. But, for fun today I wanted to share my friend Laverne's trailer. It certainly qualifies for a metamorphosis! This is BOSS LADY when Laverne first bought her... Laverne belongs to Sisters On The Fly which is a group of gals that caravan around pulling the trailers to different events. The group here in Texas are not BIG Fisherwomen... More Shopper Women! Imagine going to Antique Fairs, Festivals, & other fun places. Pulling into a camp ground, putting out your rug & table under your awning, mixing a martini & just visiting with the other sisters! FUN!!! FUN!!!! FUN!!! I think the BUG has bitten me. Hee Hee I've already looked at four trailers that didn't make the grade.

OK... another before photo of Boss Lady. YIKES!!!! Kinda scares you doesn't it??? Laverne says you have to kiss a lot of frogs to find a Prince but, this frog would have had me running!

Here she is... after being all fixed up & her snazzy new graphics on the side... Yep, that's Laverne in the photo. ?????????? How did she get that wonderful paint work done? This is just to the left of the cute little wooden screen door that has Victorian gingerbread work on it. Be sure to click on each photo to enlarge it so you can see the details put into this jewel.

And the other side of Boss Lady.

And a front view.

Don't you love the stencil work of the bandanna on the side? This is the side with the Move'em Out sign.

And the back has this cute little covered porch with the Texas Longhorns on the rail & her saddle. ADORABLE!

As you step in the door this is what you can see. This is the stove with the little sofa's to the right of it. Below the stove is the ice box. It looks like old ceiling tiles but it's not.

Here's a view a little more to the left. You can see the tin counter top & the sink. Don't you love the wood & the stars used on the cabinet fronts? I did!

And every Cow Girl would have a Tiffany Lamp over her table & sofas right?????

This is the pillows on the sofa (which is covered in black embossed leather for the cushions) & the cute floral print curtains. Laverne made her pillows. And the photo on the wall... the Cow Girl on the left is her as a young girl. Too Cool to have such a treasure!

Not the best photo I have ever taken but, one of her pillows. Sorry for the glare.

The table & curtains, a hat hanging & the Tiffany lamp.

The top of the stove with a western tray sitting on the burners. And an overview of some of her pieces of western art & graphics.

Another view of the kitchen area & if you look to the left of the sink (the white in the photo) you will see the beginning of her bed.

The bed is like The Princess & The Pea Mattress! Soft & fluffy with lots of beautiful bedding.

The curtains cover little windows for her to PEEK out of. And didn't I tell you her bedding was luscious? And notice the horns for a couple of her hats. Hmmm remember my western post & the hat I bought for the Stock Show????? LOVING this idea! One less thing to have to buy. Well, that's the end of today's Met Monday Post. Have you got wheels turning? Can you see you & your girlfriends on the road to someplace fun with your own palace on wheels? I CAN! And... Laverne is working on yet another trailer & it will have to be posted on later. Check out a few more here Have a wonderful week!

Hello Charlene ~

How fun, love it! I've seen the Cowgirl Caravan before, I think I'd be more of the "shopper" variety too, although I do love some water sports!

Thanks for your order, it'll be in the mail to you tomorrow!

SO I sat down to look at all the met monday posts... and went to yours first, loved the post and all the fun photos. Then I clicked on the link and did you know there are 42 pages of Sisters on the fly? And I was hooked... and yes I looked at everyone! HaHa... what a awesome post... Thank you so much for sharing so much fun! I only have one more thing to say...
Where do I sign up?
Have a great week!

Oh my, I so want this! When I was deep into showing my horse, we drug around a trailer that looked a lot like your "before" picture. It was humble, warm and cozy, there was food, and enough space so that you could drop into an exhausted heap at the end of a long day in the saddle. It became the spot all the other riders headed for to get a cup of warm cocoa. I loved it so much.

THIS however, is a whole different breed of cat and I'm totally jealous! If I had something like this I would never get people out of my camper! In fact, I would never get out of the camper! I can just imagine it sitting along the trail, horse tied to a stake beside, munching hay, a camp fire and a few outdoor chairs, girlfriends....[sigh]. Take me away!

THE Boss Lady????? Wow! I love that line of goodies! So much fun! And y'all are friends? So cool... LOVE that trailer! And what fun it would be.... maybe SOME day... ;)

Claudie said...

Charlene...thanks so much. God did give me (along with help from my mom and dad's genes) good hair and I guess ok looks. Now I sound conceded!
I do love my hair & at 53 I can say that I do not miss the paint brush. lol
I wish you could come and sit in my red chair and chat away. I know we would have so much to talk about.
Weather wise, this is the first week of a REAL summer.
Thanks again for the wonderful comments.
I have seen many trailers from "sister's on the fly". I found MaryJanes blog a while ago, and was blown away with all the talented ladies that re-do those things on 2 wheels. Amazing. I have been on the look out for one also. But here in Ontario, they do not come around too often. But maybe one day... I could join the girls in their adventures. You know you don't have to own a trailer? They usually stay near a little motel for "ones" that don't have a trailer, but want the adventure. That's me in a nutshell.
Have a great night.
Love Claudie
email if u wish.

Hi Charlene! I'm not a "cowgirl," but I love this trailer! It's a remarkable transformation indeed. I can imagine all the traveling & shopping adventures your friend and her "sisters" have cruising around in their hip trailers. Thanks for sharing!
Take care,
Christine :o)

Oh Charlene...this was soooo much fun seeing Laverne's little trailer. What a metamorphosis! I love it! I can tell Laverne must be a fun, fun person to know! Can't wait to see your trailer some day! :-) Susan
