I have a dream



TreeHouse Workshop



I'm SOOOO excited about FINALLY posting about my intense desire to simply live in a tree :)

My original inspiration came when I caught a whimsical photograph on the amazing visionary, Janelle Grace's, & Etc. blog.

I left a comment after seeing the photo above: "I love this last shot. I would live in a tree if it were socially acceptable :)"

And Janelle simply ran with it!

She has since sent me two insanely awesome links to articles dedicated to tree houses.





This one above, from cookiemag.com, I find especially adorable as you're not only perched up in the air in comfort and peace, but have a little bird hole to be sure your nest is secure.

But this one has to be my absolute favorite! If only I could get that darn teleportation machine up and running...

So thank you thank you, Ms. & Etc. for someone has finally taken my love for tree dwelling seriously!!

Wow, what exciting images. I love tree houses as well. We have a tiny one for our boys - adults can barely stand upright - and it is a magical place for sure. Thanks for sharing.

Oh my goodness...that first one looks amazing -- I want to live there!!

Melissa said...

Those are some pretty interesting tree houses. :)

I am glad you enjoyed the links. I would live in a tree as well if I didn't fall so much. :)

you should come check out our common threads virtual quilting bee...the latest inspiration from Betty Ninja is all about treehouses. I'm going to link everyone over hear to see these. It will be so fun to see what everyone comes up with for their blocks and how Betty puts them all together into a quilt.

It has always been a dream of mine to live in a tree house as well. I have seen a book somewhere that was completely devoted to tree homes, but I don't remember the title or the author.

My dad, who was an iron worker before he retired once helped build a tree house for someone. It was pretty famous for our area ;)

What a wonderful post! I have a deep relationship with the rooted ones and - in my own way - *do* live in them. And they in me.

Absolutely splendid and magical:)

I don't quite care for heights but I think I could get over my so-so fear if I lived in a tree house! I think part of my interest in architecture came out of my MANY viewings of the '60s Disney movie of "Swiss Family Robinson." I really wanted to live with them in their tree-house home!!

I adore that first image! It's the perfect place to hide away in. I remember asking people which part of Tolkien's world they would reside in, and most said Rivendale (with the mountains and streams), but ME? I picked the place in the trees, those giant silver trees! WOW!

LOVE IT!

How funny!!! This has always been my desire as well. All I wanted to do when I was little girl was climb trees. Even at my age I still would love to have someone build me a tree house. When I go for walks I look at trees to see if they would work for a tree house. Such a dreamer I am!!!!

I've also fantasized about treehouse-living courtesy of Swiss Family Robinson. I dare not mention this to my husband, as I think he would run with it. The major problem would be getting our pups up those ladders. I couldn't bear to live without them! Do these come with elevators?

blazedanielle said...

SOO amazing. Yes, I have the same dream!! :)

ana carina said...

Now you've done it.
Now I want to live in a tree too!

Thanks for such a great post! I have a fascination with tree houses too.

Growing up (and still now), I was always envious of kids that had tree houses. Then I married one. My Father-In-Law is a wizard with a hammer and nails. There were even bunkbeds inside.

Brooklyn's not TOO far...You might want to check out Tyler Arboretum or Longwood Gardens in PA. They both have AMAZING tree house exhibits going on until September. Some of them you could actually live in. Others are works of art! I'm going to post about our visits soon.

Oh, that first house (Tree House Workshop) is absolutely amazing... I remember 'building' houses in the woods with my younger brother when we were kids... To live in such as house must be wonderful. Wow, you got me dreaming too!

Shana said...

I realized I was smiling on your blog.. lovely pictures and your enthusiasm shows through!

Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment on my-very-first-post so that I found you back!

These tree house photos are just awesome! They make me want to live in a tree house too.
