Living in a Tree House

It’s fresh and breezy sitting here at my computer while blogging. My white, pristine curtains blowing gently with a refreshing breeze coming through the window, the forest view is lovely! Sunlight dances through the leaves and the fragrance of springtime fills the space!

Teddy in the tree houseI still miss the river, but a forest has natural air-conditioning. It used to be too hot to sit on the balcony on scorching, muggy days (even with an awning) but here I can sit on my screened deck on the hottest days! It has a roof, so I can enjoy it on rainy days, too!!

AlexAlex enjoys hanging out in the tree house as much as I do! I’ve always had a love affair with Teddy bears! Teddy bears make great friends; they are so comforting and they never tell your secrets!! Do you have a place where you love to hang out?

  4. I am glad Josep-Maria pinned your photo, this is how I found your blog.
    What an amazing place! Is it adjacent to your house? It looks so beautiful and peaceful.
    Your outfit really blends in so well.

      Thank you, Annette!!

      Yes, it is adjacent to our house in the back, it is like a balcony, one floor up from the ground, so it’s a nice view from above the garden and overlooking the forest. Very private and peaceful. Great spot to have breakfast, entertain guests, relax or read a book.

      Thanks for stopping by!!

      Pura vida!! (for an explanation of what that means, check PURA VIDA in my blog! 🙂 )

      ❤ carmen

      Thank you, Suzanne!

      I just got it set up recently because it’s been too cool, but from now till October I live out there when I’m home. I’ve even slept out there!
