It’s been a while since my last post, and I’ve really missed sharing my experiences and thoughts with you all. This past year has been a learning experience, to say the least: some good…some I could have done without. As you can see, the Peniki Bus has undergone some changes; thanks to my sudden urge to paint flowers on her. She needed some color! She needed some love!
So…one day, I just got creative and started brushing away; first having blotched her all up with spray paint. I discovered then and there– I am not a spray painter. I guess I can’t really call myself a painter of flowers either, but I love the way my newly tiki’d Peniki bus looks. I also painted a very fire-y Sol on the front, bought a new VW badge and painted it aqua blue; the same as the flowers…the same as the interior.
About the interior– I didn’t like the faded wood-look, all mismatched inside. So…I painted it, too. I also sewed some new curtains; which I really love! As for the cab seats’ re-upholstery DIY I shared a few posts back– and nearly two years ago –I still haven’t finished them, due to lack of funds, and a lot of ‘stuff’ going on to distract me. The Peniki has seen much better mechanical days, so we’ve mostly had to focus on repairs under the hatch, just to keep her put-putting around. A new engine is in-the-works, so we can once again hit the open road. It’s what I love to do. It’s what I live to do!
Anyways… If you’re reading this– thank you. If you follow our meager adventures– thanks again. And if you choose to leave a comment (or support our dreams and buy one of my two books: Sophi’s Shoe Fetish or Monday…Super-Fun Day, available on Amazon or at http://www.pennyespinoza.com), then I send to you the Merriest of Holiday wishes. May you and your camping family have a very Merry Bus’mas, and a truly Blessed Camping Christmas Holiday!
