Whoah, checking out some of the walk streets in venice yesterday, we spied a real life tree house. The child in us said "yippee!" and the adult said "how in the world did they do it?". When we were little, the closest we got to a tree house was a board nailed to two branches in an olive tree that we could perch on. We were blown away by this one because it looks like a legitimate construction, has awesome tikki-tastic style and could probably be used by adults and kids. We didn't dare check it out any closer (though we thought about it) but we instantly had dreams of hosting a tree house party or going way back and having a tree house slumber party. We were all Swiss Family Robinson for the rest of the afternoon. All in all, we thought it was a great space for kids and adults and just about the best looking tree house we've ever seen. Did you have a tree house growing up? Have you built one? Have you ever seen one like this?
