tuesday's top 12: tents, teepees and tents

April 07, 2010

I've had tents on the brain a bit lately. We just returned from our spring trip to Pacific Grove California, have you heard of it? It is bordered by 2 more-famous spots: Monterey and Carmel but it has an appeal all its own. The area began as a church retreat and each of the tiny cottages by the beach started as tents on 30x60 lots. Slowly, "fixed" parts were added or the tent was fully replaced to form a tiny-house haven. We stayed in this little charmer right by the beach.

Anyway, I digress. Tents and teepee's for this week's top 12. Enjoy!

These scream solitude, playfulness, and a return to youthful freedom - what a neat roundup! The formal qualities, especially the simplified forms, are joyful reminders of the easy days of spring and summer. Perfect end to the winter, right?!

My sister was married at the Viceroy!

I loved making tents and forts with my blankets as a kid!
