Houses that appeal to your Inner Child
I love a good playhouse.. they still appeal to my inner child.
A really great one can be like a fairytale come true..

oh no, i think it's fine on its own, mine were really all kind of houses, it started out as the beautiful houses thread and then i split them because i'm a snob and didn't want my houses to be buried under all those fancy homes of wealthy people:p

wait, i'll find it for you i just thought you might like it, too..., hang on..

Those are gorgeous.. I don't think I saw that thread.. Storm was 8 month at the time you started it.. so I had my hands full..

I think Susanna-Cole would love this thread..she posted some stuff in a similar spirit here : http://www.thefashionspot.com/forums...d-5367-55.html

oh yes, indeed. hah, it's good to be here again but i feel like a grandma with a walking stick

i find the idea of tree houses especially appealing, i suppose they appeal not only to my inner child - as almost everything does - but to my inner hippie child {as almost everything does}:p

I wish I had my hands screwed on just right.. so I could make Storm one of those houses one day..but knowing my husband.. we'd have to have building safety expectors looking over every inch of it

Such glee! Could we post pictures of unusual houses on this thread, not just playhouses? I love unusual homes, partly for the fairytale aspect, but also because they tend to embody a resourceful and respectful philosophy towards nature and society. Try googling 'unusual houses', it's heaven.




www.uforarea.com Ha! I don't know if this is real, but it shows that you don't have to tear down trees to build a home, you can work with what is on the earth.


www.billabongvalley.com Hope this isn't an earthquake-prone area!


www.xnepali.com This is such a defiant sentiment, a colorful paintjob of a stuffy apartment building. It reminds me of poor, run-down neighborhoods, where some people always clean their streets, paint their houses cheery colors, keep flowers and plants on their balconies and windowsills.


www.all-about-houseboats.com Amsterdam is beyond magical. Yes, yes, people really live in these, though I'm told the reality of living in a houseboat is less fun than the fantasy. Screw it, I want to live in a houseboat!!

Well..we could just rename this thread.. 'Houses that appeal to your Inner Child' ? That's more encompassing..

I lived on a houseboat for a year on Nagin Lake in Srinagar (Kashmir, India) truely the most beautiful place on earth.. no matter on what side of the lake you were living you had the Himalayas as a backdrop..

Hanne, you could have mentioned that biographical tidbit with some kind of disclaimer or warning. Thanks a lot, I'm disoriented and foaming at the mouth with jealousy right now. Do you have any pictures? If you do, kindly remember the disclaimer thing...

I think the "Inner Child" title is befitting, definitely. I'm sad to see that one of my pictures didn't work, but it's happened to me before, so I'll wait till tomorrow to see if it appears on my screen.

lol

Pictures ..my parents have most of them.. has I was only 10 at the time and none of them are stored on my laptop just in my head..
anyways.. it's not an 'inner child' place anymore too much political unrest among the locals (and decapitated western mountain climbers) killed the tourist industry which meant at the houseboats were left to rot without the tourist money coming in..the population to day is probably 1/10 of what it was when I was there..

Back on topic.. I see all of the pictures - no red X's for me..

What an interesting childhood you must have had! I have such wanderlust, I cannot tell you. I am aware of the political turmoil in that region, and tragically, there many awe-inspiring regions in the world that have been compromised by war and poverty. I guess it's all the more reason to cherish the time you spent there, even as a child, where much of our memory is hazy and half-formed.
