Thou Shalt Not Covet Thy Neighbor's Airstream

There has been a huge cosmic mistake. This woman has my life. Or at least she has the one that I think I want but we all know that the life I need is the one I have but still....

I frequently whine about wanting a vintage caravan to park in my backyard to use as my own personal art studio/sanctuary. However, it would also be nice if the caravan was roadworthy and large enough to provide a comfortable temporary habitat for family road trips. Maybe an Airstream would be a better choice and maybe it would look something like this:

Perfect! This little jewel belongs to John Gray and Robin Brown, owners of Magnolia Pearl. Since I did not ask their permission to use their photos on my blog, please go buy something from them so that I won't feel guilty. I would do it myself because I love everything they have but there are no prices on their website which to me means if you have to ask you can't afford it. But just look at how cute their stuff is!

I want to be girl #4 in that picture. I want to wear long gauzy bohemian dresses with ruffled pantaloons and scuffed booties. And I want to have naturally curly blonde hair that I don't even comb because I'm just cool like that. And I want to live on a farm and be tan all the time and have teeth as white as my boho fashions. And if it's not too much to ask let's just go ahead and kick the clock back about 20 years so that I can wear my lovely sleeveless dresses without worrying about my arm wings flapping in the wind.

That's who I was supposed to be. I'm just sure of it. I want the life I was supposed to have, complete with this darling little Airstream that I pull behind my rose covered 1958 Rolls Royce Silver Cloud.

I want to take my Airstream to antique shows where I sell my overpriced garments to middle aged women who wish they were me.

Then after a long hard day of separating the old bitties from their cash, I want to relax in my antique french claw footed tub (yes, that's IN my Airstream) then sleep in my custom made Princess and The Pea bed where I will dream about how fabulous it is to be me.

Seriously, is that too much to ask??
