I'm Kimberly AKA Akimboalogo
Meet Lola my adorable 17ft baby Boler
I instantly fell in love with the this darling lil trailer. The previous owner insulated & reupholstered her. Adding new cushions with indoor outdoor fabrics, in a fun n fresh & bold flower pattern, with matching\coordinating custom hand made roman blinds with stripes and the same bold pattern. I adorned her with my many vintage treasures from 2nd hand, flea markets, garage & estate sale finds. The table wear I'm using is from my own collection of mixed n matched vintage & new: Lu Ray, Jadeite, Milk glass, & vintage turquoise mason jars, my Mother's silver wear, pretty new ruffled burlap place mats, new & vintage linens for the cute kitchenette. I'm not a purist, so I don't prefer one style or decade over another, I love them all, so my style reflects that.
I have my built in couch/fold out bed set as a day bed with pretty fresh pillow cases in linen, Egyptian cotton, with a pastel and neutral palette of white, pale greens, creams and beiges. With the comforts of laying on a feathered bed topper, my many quilts & chenille in vintage & new. Oh this double bed is a comfy cosy joy to sleep in.
I use wicker baskets and galvanized for extra storage and for service wear, with my vintage and new platters. I picked up a bunch of 2nd hand white appliances a toaster, a blender for my margaritas, kettle, mixer, a travel iron..no ruffing it or wrinkles for me...lol. The Sally Ann, VV, Goodwill, G sales, Marshals and Winners have been a source of vintage or reproduction & accessories.
I'm planning on painting
the outside in a couple weeks turquoise & white or the soft green of my vintage dishes in Jadeite & pale blue of my Lu Ray pastel.
Funny, I'm normally more a blue and white beachy type of gal, but I have quickly come to love and enjoy this sweet calming color palette. I was also was surprised to find all my treasures worked so well in her.
I look forward to our many roads trips, music festivals, shopping sprees and adventures around Canada and the USA.
I glamping we will go.
I'm grateful and blessed to have 5 beautiful grown children and a wonderful husband Tom, who supports and encourages my creativity, interests, hobbies and dreams.
