2012 27′ International Signature Airstream Travel Trailer (aka “Silver Girl”)
Happy Shiny Holidays A new tiny table from Ikea — perfect for the lounge ♥Sunset View at Kalaloch State Park in Washington State on the Olympic PeninsulaAnother view at Kalaloch State Park ♥♥ Shots from Instagram ♥
This is the inside of our Airstream with the dinette down creating a lounge. The dinette is right under Oliver who is snoozing away ♥I installed a magnetic strip above the stove to hold my knives. Found it at Ikea and man, that thing is seriously strong — it holds my knives in place even with their plastic blade covers on.
This is our Airstream with the dinette up ♥

A better way to go about washing dishes in a single sink. Complete story/method here.
a perfect 14 x 14 cutlery drawer
Still working on organizing things better and re-arranged the drawers this way
I cut out felt circles with some pinking shears to place between the plates to give them a cushy ride while under tow
Nestled dishes. Goodwill is a
fun great place to find treasures for your trailer. I found those silver bowls there!
Okay, these lights are wonderful! Without them this deep cabinet is rather dark at night and it’s difficult to see what you have put in there. I suggest you run to your local Costco and pick up a pack. They retail for $28 and you get 6 of them. Here is a link to them on my Facebook Page
Update: Ahh this cabinet. Do you see how everything is neatly stacked and organized? Can you see the items waaaaay in the back? If I needed to access any of the items back there — everything in the front had to come out. Drove. Me. Nuts. This was something I discovered after a few road trips and I knew there just had to be a better way.
FINALLY a solution!!
Enter sliding plastic bins. From the Container Store, the system is by “Like-it” and they are called “Short Wide Bin” the LED lights are still working wonderfully too.
Two shelves fit inside perfectly and the top shelf slides right out allowing me to easily access the typical pantry staples. This is So. Much. Better.
How my lower drawer is organized
I found these stainless steel martini-margarita-wine-tumblers on amazon.com
Update: 1/20/13: A collapsible salad spinner – who knew? Another reason I ♥ shopping at Ross.
Update: Speaking of shopping at Ross – I found these colorful Laguiole steak knives there for only $15.99. I’m still scratching my head on why they are so inexpensive there and so expensive elsewhere.
clear acrylic ipod holder – we use this in the bedroom, bedside.
I heart this bathroom. There are two white walls and a white door which continue to add to the retro/modern feel of the entire trailer.
I couldn’t stand the doors on the upper cabinet. They were driving me insane. They were impossible to open thanks to a special (stopper) so that while under tow, the drawers would stay shut so I just removed them.
Update: Added a round mirror I found at Target in the bathroom so B can see himself when brushing his hair and teeth. Attached it via sticky velcro strips so it can be easily removed if I need to have a handheld mirror.
♥♥ ROCK STAR pillow ♥♥
magazine and book holder (and pillow!)
Where we keep the magazine/book holder
Update: 1/20/13: Where we keep our ski boots after a day of skiing (there is a furnace under the dinette/sofa that blows some serious warm heat so the boots dry off and the bonus is that we get to put on warm boots the following morning :) I should caution keeping anything too close to the furnace vent as the ski goggle holder on my helmet MELTED off from the extreme heat. Yikes.
Fantastic and perfectly sized doormat
