Mom Cave aka My "Tree House"


My "tree house"  is joining the parties!








http://rhondisrosecoloredglasses.blogspot.com/2011/06/porch-party.html
 
Hop over and see all the lovely porches. 





 So...Pack your bags! You're coming along to my "tree house"! 
And it's a LONG Trip...








I've got a spot waiting just for you...




With books to read ~ a little refreshing treat~come on along with me
to see what you can see!








It's cooler up here, way up here,
with the birds and the bees and the flowers and the trees...
and a few squirrels, too, now shoo!


Comfy chairs, with one to spare...Cast away all your cares!



I f  Texas' hotness is more than you can bare, turn on the fan...just make sure to share. 
It may be October, but the bank sign still reads ninety! 
Now, that just don't seem fair!






William & Lezlee, sittin' in a tree... 
Shucks, you know the rest, oh gee!
(that's the romantic part, tee hee)



A comfy red, bed to lay your sweet head...
a crisp white sheet~makes it complete!



"A bird cage with no bird?" you say.
I say, "All the rage!!"



An aquarium with no fish, 
What more could you wish!




 A threadless spool, now that just makes me drool~~

 

Maybe, a frame without a painting, makes you go to fainting!
Or a funky old bottle tree, 
here's a clue,
in a PRIOR life,
it held a shoe or two!
Funky junk filling me with glee!
Hold up! There is plenty more to see!




An old baby gate, works just great!
Thanks for coming along to my "Tree House"



Relax, Enjoy!!!







 If I win the gift certificate from Home Goods, I could have these lovely pillows to go on my red iron bed!
and the pots are great, too!




 I could also have some chocolate and a ladybug tea party with those grand daughters!

(ladybug is what my daddy used to call me...back when this was my home)

Now, how's this place for porches!













I desire my home to hold within it, the voice of  my heart ~    

Just as the sea shell holds within it, the voice of the ocean~
                                                                                                                 Lezlee




Sweet Dreams!

Hey, I did win the gift certificate from Home Goods! How about that!!!

So cute!!!!! I could just hear you reading it to me! But man I wouldn't have wanted to haul all that UP to the tree house! Just had a thought--maybe that can be my hiding spot when I need a break next year during school. No one would find me there!

Hi Lezlee,

OMG! Your treehouse is beautiful, lucky you. I love it. I love your blog too. I just became a follower.

Thank you so much for coming to visit.

Kathy

Roberta said...

Wow...you lucky girl ;) Funny thing is that I just gave my son (who is 31) a book this year for his birthday about building treehouses. He has the bug like me to be up in the trees and out in the fresh air. Right now I have to settle for my hammock in the back yard...lol We don't have any land or trees big enough for your lovely treehouse right now. How on earth did you get that bed up there and how do you keep the rain/weather from ruining things? Curious minds want to know these things...lol Good luck in the contest, fondly, Roberta
