Eyes are the windows to the world!

Hellooooooo out there! Mercy here, back to show you some more of what's been done to bring me back to my old glory. They say that the eyes are the window to the world. I say feast your eyes on my windows!

This is my front window on the outside when I arrived...

Well, all by her little ole self that 99 took out those old rusty screws and removed my eyebrow and my window. Brrrr....that cold breeze flowing through my insides gave me quite a sensation! 

Now this was no small feet because 99 isn't even five feet. She stood up on the hitch, pulled out the window, rested it on the hitch and then climbed down the whole while saying over and over "please don't break, please don't break". It didn't and neither did she!

I heard her start up the sander and do some cleaning and wet sanding and then it was polish time. Next all the old putty had to be scraped off and removed from the window and my skin. It felt awful refreshing to get rid of that old grime. 

Then she put fresh new putty tape on me, climbed back on the hitch and tried to put the window in. She decided not to test fate and this is when she called her daughter to help her. Her daughter held the window while she popped in a few screws to secure it. It was a typical New York day in February. Downright CHILLY! 

"Wow, my hands are freezing. This metal is cold!", her daughter informed her. Well, 99 just kind of looked at her and said, "you wanna tell me something I don't know?". I giggled. It was funny!

Next thing I knew, my window was back in place and so was my eyebrow. 99 even went around the top and sides of the window with caulk for some extra protection! Check me out....I'm smiling...

The inside of my window had to be done also. It was scrubbed and polished and the screens were taken out and replaced and my trim was all shined up too. I went from this....

To this...

You can even see how much of a difference just changing the screens makes. It's not hard to tell which is old and which is new here...

Most of my other windows have been cleaned up too. Here is my curbside...

On the inside...

All of my window trim has been done. What a difference it makes!

If the eyes are the windows to the world then I am feeling like I just had my cataracts removed! 

It's late, I'm beat! This is Mercy siging off with a big merci beaucoup to all of you who stopped by to visit. Until next time, I leave you with this:

For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.

Any time you feel like you are alone in a big battle against the odds, just remember...there are always people cheering you on. That and that alone can make all the difference in the world!

Goodnight everybody!


  1. LOVE watching your progress,Mercy!!!! You are turning into a real GEM,and some lucky camper is going to make you VERY happy!!!

  2. Louvered windows suit best with your trailer. They're cute especially when you look at them from the outside. They added style to your camper, Janet. I used to love this type of window when I was a kid. I find it cool whenever I try to open and close the parallel glasses. Haha!

  3. I think I have only seen three or four campers that have jalousie windows. Many would normally choose a glass window for their campers. Why did you go for this type of window, by the way? If you ask me, I would also prefer this one because it provides you with amazing ventilation and it can give you total privacy as well.
