Life goal no. 1: Live in a tree house.

From my novel: In my Sherwood forest, the outlaws' hideout is atop a giant oak. Marion has to majorly build her upper arm strength for the daily rope climb and is aided by natural hand holds: shelf fungi.

If you are a person (I'm assuming that most of you are) what does your dream house look like?

If you are a writer, how do your favorite hideaways show up in your works?

^ This one looks like a good ole hideout.

A tree house, a free house,
A secret you and me house,
A high up in the leafy branches
Cozy as can be house
A street house, a neat house,
Be sure and wipe your feet
Is not my kind of house at all.
Let's go live in a tree house.
Shel Silverstein

Below: Very Medieval, yes?

Lately I've been dwelling on these dwellings (Ha! How's that for a LAME pun/thing, QUIP?) and I decided to share them a bit.
In ten years, you can find me in my tree house.

YAAAY! Someone who shares my obsession with treehouses! Btw, have you heard of the Treesort? Not only do they have lots of different treehouses to stay in, they also have ZIP LINES! How cool is that? :)

I also saw the pic of the hobbit treehouse. I love it! I can just picture Frodo sitting there, reading a book... He's probably not as afraid of heights as the rest.

I've wanted to build/live in a treehouse ever since I can remember. Unfortunately, all I've been able to build so far are mini ones, y'know, Beanie Baby-sized. Maybe I'll put some pictures on my blog sometime.

And Robin's band would definitely live in a treehouse. Perfect.

My life goals are slowly growing...I LOVE tree houses. =D Someday you should come over so we can show you ours. They're nothing much, but hey, it's a start. =P

I spell my name "Qwip". :P

A well done bad pun, though. Keep up the "good" work.

YAYAY! I'd be so cool if I could live in one of those!
