Stunning post as ever. Looking forward to seeing the stitchy fabricky things you make for Connievan


Wonderful blog post Lucy! I LOVE all the images here! How I miss my little caravan studio I had 20 years ago :( Looking forward to getting my Caroline Rose Art Caravan Mug and delighted to have been there too sharing in the excitement of watching the mug ideas grow.


Good luck with your Connivanning vantastically all through the summer. We sold our Dolly campervan earlier this year - heartbreaking - can't bring myself to blog about it, or even think about it. I'll have to share the great outdoors through your posts - fingers crossed for a beautiful summer.


We had a little caravan when I was growing up in the late 60s early 70s and I LOVED it. I was always amazed by the fact that our parents bed pulled down from the wall! I have so many happy memories of our holidays there, it was a slower pace of life but I can remember it so much more fondly than any 'expensive' holiday we went on x

Lovely post Lucy. Very colourful. Whilst not a caravaner myself I am often found drooling on Pinterest over other people's caravan/camper van creations. Have popped over to Caroline's Etsy shop - my word, what beautiful illustrations - may have to get me one of those! Jane x

Love the mugs, have to get myself one. I'm dying to paint my caravan red outside, the inside is very red! Why don't you get Connievan an awning for your kids, doubles the size


Your oldest might enjoy having a little tent to himself as he gets a bit older. Or you could get an awning with a bedroom. Lots of camping/caravan shops sell them. My 14 year old still enjoys coming with us.


I'm getting one of those mugs asap! :D

Thank you for cheering up my my Wednesday morning, I always love your blogposts so! <3


Lovely happy colourful post! And with added caravan goodness. Thank you. You've lifted my spirits x


What a lovely post Lucy. I have not ever 'got into' caravaning, although i do do it of sorts on the water! Weare sailors and every year we, as a family on a teeny tiny boat spend quality time together. My son too is 12, and these are preciuos days. We find bu giving him some responsibilty and independent freedom, that he still really enjouys coming away with us. It is as if we are adventurous. In 2008, our little boat was the smallest to cross the Atlantic with a family of 4! We took our children out of school for a year and had the most special, quality time together. The children wrote theri own blog too, so friends could keep in touch: http://oursailingyear.blogspot.co.uk/2008/09/two-day-night-sail-by-ella.html The colour in your caravan must be truly amazing and wish that I had added colour to our boat. You are such an inspiration Lucy. Did you ever pop by and see the colourful Scandinavian inspired breadbasket I made? http://eclectichomelife.blogspot.co.uk/2014/03/breadbasket-for-outdoor-living.html


A fabulous post today Lucy, as always. I was sat here with a steaming cuppa & some toast and reading your lovely blog. Thank you so much.
Love Carole from Rossendale xxx

Hi Lucy,

I found the Fox's Lane blog via attic24 and love it. The book looks amazing - I'm tempted to buy a copy, even though we don't have a caravan! Wishing you many happy Connievan moments this year. x


Aw beautiful Lucy you have made my day. And you even made my farmer boy get a bit emotional. That is the most wonderful and generous review ever. I am so thrilled you love my book. Thank you, thank you. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx


That book is amazing, a joy to flip through, wishing you a wonderful year of fun with Connievan, looking forward to seeing all the sprucing up.

My goodness, is it really 2 years since you started those curtains?! I remember it like it was yesterday and funnily enough I was wondering just recently how they had turned out. Beautifully it looks from what I see in the picture above. The book looks wonderful and I can completely understand your love and excitement about caravans. I taunt myself with gazing at similar pictures sometimes but a caravan would not be practical for us at all. (Car not remotely suitable for towing for one thing!)

Enjoy your wonderful family time together in her though, such memories last a long time :)

My childhood family had caravan holidays until we were all well into our teens. When we grew to big for the caravan the young people moved into a tent whilst parents continued to sleep in the van. Exciting for you that you are taking Connievan on the road again this year!

Sarah Lovell

lovely blog! I always wanted a campervan, but I may be starting to be converted to the idea of a caravan.

Those fabrics make my heart sing! I'm definitely a brights gal...hope your machine gets some TLC :-)

Elaine Ridley

Lovely post Lucy and thanks for the ideas to brighten up my caravan! Ours is in Cornwall and we love it!


Looking forward to reading about your Connievan adventures this year! ;-)


Oh Lucy..you have a caravan dream board and I have a dream to own a caravan. It would be such a pleasure to pack some clothes and drive until reaching the spot, which ever it is, and stay there..
Thank you again for the inspiration.
It is ,as always, very uplifting to read your thoughts..

Debbie P.

As always, a wonderful and colour filled post. I never get enough of caravans. Hopefully, one day, I will be able to have one. Thanks for the link to Caroline's etsy shop. I plan on purchasing a mug or two. Hope you are having warm, spring weather.
