Motor Home Makeover-Fiesta!


These are the colors of Fiesta Ware that Caryn and I found to go in the camper. Some folks might say that matching pottery is not part of camping….well, to them I say “It is-if you camp like I do!” No really, I’ve lived in housing that was little better than primitive camping, so … More
