we are climbing up into our tree house


i ran to put cypress & bay laurel on my wrists... 5 drops each.
i put on my silver jingle bracelet... we are going to climb the ladder
up into our tree house... we will disappear into books... together.

now we are climbing... my wrists jingle with each rung.
i am humming something that seems to be coming from
the earth floor... something soft and ordinary...
the ground is fading... clouds roll in.

inside... we can just stand... here... in the amber
cedar light... i place a crown on your head.
it looks perfect.
then we look out of little moon shaped windows... together.

Enchanting post... and a lovely tree house! RavenWood could use all kinds of little inviting enchanting places... but for now... soft mosses and ferns will do!

Forest blessings - and have a good tea time in the tree!

I found that Blythe photo somewhere and have been searching for it since! Thanks!

BTW, do you own a Blythe?

I wish I could stay in a tree house with tea, books, and yarn forever.

The tree house looks made for you. It reminds me of a Remedios Varo painting. A world inside a tiny locket. xx

aw, I love tree houses...I always want one when it rains...and drinking tea inside...with lots of books around me...now you got me dreaming :) thank you :)

and the blythe doll looks kind of cute...but I´m always a little scared by these dolls...hm..I dont know ;D

cuddles :)

Pandora said...

I have 3 Blythes and I haven't gotten the courage to customize yet. I am thinking about eye chips soon.

I would like to see the little dress you knitted. Somehow I doubt that it was awful.

Enjoy your trip!

Trying to take tumbling tomes to treehouse, tricky thing to try... perhaps place pully pail perhaps please peter pan pixie powder please... I always wanted hundreds of books up in the trees with me in my tree next to our house. Our cat would jump up so swiftly and with ease, but even she couldn't bring up books my Mom would remind me. Laughing at that memory. I hope you are inspired to have tree house dreams just thinking about your trip and they give you joy. Blessings to you faery flyer.

Okay, that is seriously the most gorgeous blythe doll ever!!!!! I have one, but am too scared to take the angle apart! :) Can I ask were you found the pic?

The tree house looks magical. I only wish that England was only a short car ride away! :(

I have been so much into antlered people lately, I trade and collect ATCs, and that photo would be such a gorgeous addition to my collection. Since it can´t be, I´ll have to settle for some great inspiration... Thank you!

Beautiful post my fairy friend.
Cute Blythe doll, with her little fawn ears and hooves. The blossom around your tree house looks magical.
Blessings and sparkles.

whoa! that tree house is real and you get to visit it??? it looks so magical and quaint espcially with all the cherry blossoms (?) blooming around it, surrounding it in a soft pink haze.
