The Cherry on Top of the Silver Suitcase™ (Vintage Trailer Show )

The Modernism Week Vintage Trailer Show two-day extravaganza was a whirlwind of fun, was it not, people?!  And, I can't wait for next year.

Meeting everyone, and ogling all of the other interiors of the trailers - was Trailer eye candy, unlike any other.

Thank you to everyone who came out with their trailers, thank you to everyone who volunteered, pitched in, worked, thank you to the Hilton for having us and most importantly,  thank you to all of the visitors, you all were great!

As Sunday was winding down, I was seriously surprised and touched when I won Best Modernism Trailer for my airstream -  there were 34 other outstanding rigs there!

Here I am with Mona, the organizer extraordinaire of the Vintage Trailer Show, and my nifty Award!
(I feel like I should share the award with Mona who is the supa-dupa organizer of all organizers!)

What an incredible ending to a really fun-filled weekend. See, even we get into awards season here in Trailer Land.

Some Highlights from the Vintage Trailer Show at Modernism Week in Palm Springs

One of the consistent features in all of the trailers were the bursts of color - and there is nothing like the desert sun to really bring out the best in all of them!

Look! Happy Trailers!

Glam Trailers!

 Loved this one - the old school classic:

More tomorrow, we're still getting things together for the Silver Suitcase™ to turn back into my  home.

What an incredible, fun weekend, and meeting everyone was definitely the icing on the cake!

Vintage Trailer Show begins this weekend! Silver Suitcase™ to be featured! Modernism Week in Palm Springs!

Tomorrow, Saturday February 22 commences the Modernism Vintage Trailer Show in Palm Springs CA. The show is a nice bookend to Modernism Week in Palm Springs, which has been a whirl of events all week.

Today is the loading in of the trailers located in the parking lot of the Hilton Hotel  on Tahquitz Canyon.

I was asked to have my home on display, so I have MOVED the beloved Silver Suitcase™ to the parking lot for the weekend! Crazy, right???! But how could I resist?

I 'm excited to see people's reactions to my home and to meet the other owners of much loved trailers. We are definitely a unique and if I do say so myself, a really, really fun bunch.  How can you be sour if you've got a vintage trailer tricked out? You just can't.
