Gypsy Caravans

I wish I could spend my summer days and nights living in any one of these beautiful intricately decorated Gypsy caravans. I would travel for months, stopping where ever took my fancy. I would decorate by little home with patchwork, crotchet, vintage treasures, little flowers in jam jars and a kaleidoscope of colours. I wish i could see the whole world around me, free to live amidst the forests, falling asleep under the stars....

'Vehicles like this began to be used by travelling showmen in the 1820's and from the 1850's they were adopted by Romanies (Gypsies)'
