Dream a little dream with me...

Someday I will have my very own painted Gypsy Caravan! Look at this lovely purple caravan. It's nestled in an English garden in London... It belongs to an artist who uses it as her atelier. I would create such a magickal sacred space! If I ever buy a house it must have a backyard big enough for a garden and my caravan!

There are two types of caravans. The one pictured on top and below is a "Dunton of Reading" Romany Gypsy Ledge Vardo, my favorite!

The other is a Bow Top caravan!! Maybe you have room for your own caravan...I found this seller on ebay who sells complete building plans for both models, including painting, color, details, and carving!

I'm freaked out by how seemingly close our interests are. I was brought to your page after doing an image search on Mandrake roots. I'm considering getting the 1st stanza of John Donne's "Go and Catch a Falling Star" tattooed... a 17th century song that might interest you.
But when I came your page, for a split second I wondered if this was another blog I had created then forgot the password to and abandoned, because I LOVE gypsy caravans, and truly want one someday also!!
I also like bird skulls, etc.
Truly bizarre connections. Good to know there's a kindred soul out there!
