drawing challenge / treehouse

This treehouse would be a dream come true for my kids.

I've always loved the idea of tree houses, if only I didn't have this darn fear of heights.  Luckily Greta and Henry haven't inherited this fear.  How I wish I could give them this tree house.

Look up to find more tree houses from around the world.

Dear Rachel,
maybe sometimes we, as a mother, have to overcome a fear. No matter what kind of fear...
Or, ha! we strike a balance and build the treehouse halfway between :)

Your wonderful treehouse is worth to be build! And I can see Greta and Henry already...

Your theme reminds me on my (and my sisters) dream as a child... two treehouses! Thank you :)

This tree house would be any child's dream, especially with a tall ladder to climb and a swing beside it! I'd like to live in it! Love the lines of the tree. x Carole

dear Rachel, i guess Greta and Henry love this drawing too, their dream on paper.
You have a wonderful way to draw trees, they are so alive and strong
and the treehouse, a real big one, nicely embraced by those branches, a touch of colour making it so welcoming.
Thanks for a great theme(that felt familiar;)) xx

Rachel I love the house with the yellow door. And that swing with the long, long, long rope. What fun. Isn't it a great idea to dream about a great idea of a treehouse. I have enjoyed this drawing challenge very much. Thank you for hosting it! Love your drawing. *smiles* Norma
