No this post isn’t about tiny Coalport, Meissen or other small collectibles (I can do that later) but rather actual tiny houses!!!! Yes, ones you live in. Full disclosure, I already live in a tiny house…what you say, “I thought you live in a high rise condo”, true but it is 700 square feet…so I am qualified to discuss the subject…just saying! As a child I adored my doll house and, of course, spent many hours making many log cabins with my Lincoln Logs with Daddy.
At this point in time in my life should I be rethinking my living arrangements and perhaps see if any of my land owning friends will let me “park” myself on their property…I don’t drive so it would either be a permanent structure or mobile, with a hired driver when needed
I am obsessed with watching ALL the programming on tiny homes on HGTV and DIY, but then I’m obsessed with most of their programming. It seems many of them are either metal frames or wood cabin looking…neither would be what I would want, so mine would have to be designed to my specs, of course it would, and here are some looks that appeal to me. Most with either a Victorian shabby chic or bohemian feeling, definitely my style, or a bit of modern….maybe!
Too cookie cutter for me…
More my taste…
A more mid-century look perhaps……
Even George Bernard Shaw enjoy a tiny house, it rotated with the sun, for his studio.But I envision something more Pygmalion or actually Beaton’s My Fair Lady decor… If truth were told I would love to retrofit a Vintage Airstream….some thoughts…
Okay full confession, how I really want to live is in a English gypsy caravan. Ruthy, my Mother, loved to tell of the gypsies and their caravans that would camp on her Father’s land outside Joplin, Missouri. Each year they would come and my Grandfather gave them permission to use the land. As children, Mom and her siblings would visit the camp to hear wonderful stories and play with the children. Mom didn’t look like her brothers and sisters and I teased her that she must have been left as a baby by the gypsies to be taken care of by my grandparents…she rather liked the idea of a Bohemian lifestyle and found it a romantic notion (she was, of course, a legitimate child of my grandparents, birth certificates and Bible entry as proof!!!!!) In any instance, fairy tales aside, I find gypsy caravans right up my alley…in fact my current dwelling resembles one.
How I want my home to look….walls and pillows are pretty similar now, would love to do either wallpaper or dark lacquer green, very glossy, paint.
Too much…in my mind never….and I would have to consider where to house ALL my books.
How I see my caravan in its pastoral setting….I can dream can’t I…..

Yes! What a magical article! Thank you.
Thanks Kay…perhaps a wanderer I shall become!!!!
Yes,,,,You should!!! Why dream a dream when you can live it!!!
These gypsy caravans are literally the most adorable cozy little abodes I’ve ever seen!
Aren’t they….I’ve always been fascinated with them….now to find a “parking” place!
Interesting article. Love the idea but what would I get rid of first! Umm….
