The  Treehouse  Today



Update: This is a super old blog post about the treehouse.  As tempting as it was to DELETE IT, eeeeek… I wanted to share these BEFORE pics of the treehouse.

For more current photos and fun treehouse stories.. search the word treehouse in the blog search bar.  Complicated, right? LOL. xx


Tree fort living is where it is at.

I am on an official treehouse marathon.

Can’t seem to tear myself away from it.

I am incognito.  Off the map.

Out to lunch.  Gone to Margarita~ville.


The BEFORE photos of the treehouse. Eeeeek.


It is in-describable how good it feels to sleep amongst the sway of the trees , and the night time sounds.

Ok, ok, sometimes I am totally chicken, but we are not going to really talk about that.

What could possibly get me?!! A cow ? A horse ? I am sure I will survive.

If not, this is my cry for help…come find me , if I never post again.


The BEFORE photos of the treehouse. Eeeeek.

Oh, I have my excuses, for never leaving my “new official home, errh…hideaway…escape from dishes”….


Listening to the rain

Reading a good book

Listening to music

Sipping vin rouge

oh la la


The BEFORE photos of the treehouse. Eeeeek.

Sure , I have been attacked by the odd moth, but heck, I am still alive and well.

Note to self : Do not turn on iphone in the pitch black, and play around in twitter~ville.  If there is a moth in the room, he will do the face bounce ~ phone bounce ~ off the head bounce ~ I felt like a human swatting machine with arms flailing and getting no where.

I looked like I was doing the chicken dance at Octoberfest.

Thank Gawd, I was not being video recorded. Em-barr-ASS-ing.

The BEFORE photos of the treehouse. Eeeeek.

I look this next shot from the bedroom loft of the fort, this morning.

Can you blame me, for not dragging my fanny out of bed?  Uhhmmm, yup, this is what happens when your contractor LOVES creating tree forts.

Wish I could swing the camera in a 360*, so you could see the dormers.  Only my head can do a 360* Linda Blair, when a moth gets out of control and does the nutty dance on my head.

A girlfriend stayed over last night.   We sat on the front porch of the fort and talked until the wee hours about one of our favorite places ~ PARIS !!

We did manage to try to dream up tree fort names.

Thought we may even name it THE GIRLS CLUB HOUSE .

Don’t tell the boys.

I will have to break it to the kids, when they get home from camp ~ Mommy is living in the tree fort for the rest of her life.

Over and out.

The hours just get away from me.  I forget about things like dinner.  Grocery shopping.


Food schmood.

    […] people in my life, positive affirmations, and favorite pastimes. I like to visualize the beach or a fabulous treehouse when I daydream, and have truly happy times when being creative. This is not the first time I have […]

    I’ve always suspected that I would love life in a tree house. Your pictures have made that vague notion become a vivid “YES! I need this! I WANT this!!” It sounds lovely. Thank you for sharing such an amazing space.

    You are most welcome Theresa…. and it is true true true…it is an absolutely epic feeling to sleep in a treehouse. You can hear the sounds of the night, see the moon, listen to the trees…smell the aroma of the beautiful air. Bliss. I think EVERYONE should have a treehouse xx
    I hope you feel inspired to have one some day !
