a tree house, a free house

a tree house
a free house
a secret you and me house
a high up in the leafy branches
cozy as can be house..

i have loved this poem for a very long time. i always dream of living in a tree house and that poem always makes me smile. i painted this painting on scrap wood and it is now at The Bubble in Fort Lauderdale, FL. My peace owl section has turned into a feathery peace owl kingdom. I had fun hanging feathers from the ceiling and on the walls with a friendly staple gun.
Right now I am busy getting ready for a craft show coming up next weekend called Odd Duck Handmade Bazaar. It will be in Davie, FL at the historic davie school house. It will be a fun place filled with crafty treasures. Odd Duck is Saturday March 27th from 12-6pm. This craft show will even have face painting and a DIY craft table where you can make a terranium, yay. :)
