Now take a look at what it is and you'll see exactly why I love it, it's bright, jolly and full of charm. It makes me extremely happy every time I arrive home and see it in the hallway.
It's a lovely little storage box by the company RICE.
I was smitten the second I saw it and knew that Dennis would love it also.
I love that this box is serving a very dull and boring purpose. yet the box is so UNBORING (if that's even a word) and is overflowing with character. A BOX with CHARACTER!!!
A little cup in the kitchen window
Cheery flower boxes and tied back curtains
Some tulips sitting in the window and a flappy awning to protect them from the sun
A storage box, probably full of fishing equipment, tennis rackets, and inflatable dingies ready for some fun and adventure for whoever occupies this caravan.
Outside, A deck chair that looks recently sat in. I also see an ice cold lemonade with bright coloured straw waiting for the return of it's owner
And if they fancy a trip to the beach, remember not to forget the beach ball.
The one little detail that gets me though:
The Bunting!!! Surely a crafter lives in this caravan. I f I owned a caravan I'd have bunting EVERYWHERE possible. I'd live in my caravan full of bunting, in a forest of lolly pop trees, with the sun shining over me as I sit in my chair sipping lemonade. I really wish this caravan were real, it's just too cute.
For now I'll make do with it being a mini storage box and dream about the mini people that really live in it :-)
