Meet Janet ~ Of Wagon Master RV Park & Alpaca Farm

Meet Janet!  She is super sweet, very professional when you call in for reservations.
She was so excited to be moving into their new house!
Just check out this gorgeous kitchen!

When we moved to Texas in November 2016
one of the first people we met were
Janet Woolston and her husband Ken
of Wagon Master RV Park and Alpaca Farm.

Come along inside and visit her 
beautiful Texas home!



Wagon Master RV Park and Alpaca Farm
(940) 458-0077
is located in the small town of 
Sanger, Texas
off the I-35 north of Denton city,
exit 478.

The Woolstons have owned this property for
about 4 1/2 years now and
the site came with about 100 RV spots for
weekend camping and extended stays.
But enough about all that!
Let's get to their beautiful home.

***You can read all about the camp itself
and the sweet alpacas
here and here.
:)


The barn door separating the front office space from the house itself.
Love that barn door look!

Inside the Office

We came to the park our first weekend
in North Texas in mid-November 2016
then after a 
two week-plus stay down in Corinth at
Destiny RV Park
Janet had a long-term space come available
as of December 1st.
Hallelujah!!!

Turns out so many people are 
moving to Texas there aren't so many places 
for people to stay and that includes RV parks ~
which are an economical way to live
for folks on a tight budget
or just for 
folks wanting to get away from the
noise and expense often associated 
with apartments.



Well, these first two photos are a little blah
in that there aren't the cute decorations
up that there are now.
{I need to remember to get back over and shoot some new pics!}
But, this is the front office area where campers
register and can come and shop for
cute alpaca decor.

***
I did get over to snap a couple of newer
photos of the finished office!
However... My phone refuses to upload
these photos.
ugh!
:(

***Please pop over to my Instagram page {Barbara Chapman/French Ethereal}
to see the photos.
I did get them posted over there yesterday. :)

Love the crystal chandy above the sink and the real hardwood flooring! I was soooo
envious of her dishwasher at the time.  I'm good now! ;)

Back inside the house

Janet had final inspections later that week
just before Thanksgiving
and
this is when I was invited inside!
A lot of her cabinets are stock cabinets you
can pick up at Ikea.
I always knew Ikea had cabinets
but it has been years since I really went shopping
inside their store.
It's on my Design Bucket List...
;)




I love the farmhouse look

Throughout Janet's home, she has farm-style faucets and 
bronze knobs and pulls on all the cabinets
creating a cohesive look to each of her rooms.
The cabinets and furniture are mostly white ~ 
very soothing after a long day working ~
which also helps create that cohesiveness
I think all well-decorated homes
strive to have.

Janet worked as a receptionist until
she retired from a local school district and 
her husband Ken retired as a principal.
So, now instead of teaching full-time
they are farming and on a smaller scale 
teaching others about the joys of 
raising alpacas.



The telephone bath wand is another luxury not to do without if you put in a raised tub.
This is the master bathroom's bathroom.

Hardwood runs throughout the home and
both the guest and master bathrooms
have lovely tubs... sigh!
I don't know about you, but one of the nicest
things I ever got to do years ago was
to float in a bubble bath in a clawfoot tub.
They really hold the heat well
so taking a bath in one is
just a real treat!



Here in the guest bathroom
extra shelves were installed for storing linens
and a vintage-style mirror
was going over the sink area.



Here's a close-up of that reused vintage mirror
ready to be hung.




In addition to the lovely bathrooms, 
each bedroom has double hung windows
with incredible views of the park and pastures.

The living room has a gorgeous rock fireplace
which my photograph didn't come out.
:(
French doors lead from the dining/living room
out onto an enclosed sun porch ~ perfect for those 
warm evenings cuddled under a light blanket
sipping on a mug of sweet iced tea
while watching the farm animals
graze and bed down for the night.
Then later on for watching the moon rise up 
into the night sky.
What a wonderful way to finish out 
the day!


Well, I hope you've enjoyed this tour of 
Janet and Ken's new home.
I feel privileged and blessed to visit
any day while we are here.
If you are looking for a great place to
come camping, do call and set up a reservation.

***The Woolstons also hope to have a second location
{this RV park-to-be near Aubry, Texas, will be a "dog-themed park!"}
opening in 2018.
Escrow on the property closes in April and 
work will begin on the property 
prepping RV camping spots straight away.


Happy Thursday, ya'll!
Barb :)
