Tent

I built a big tent in my apartment to escape the real world for a bit.
But I love it so much I don't know if I'll ever come back!

That's so funny. I literally JUST posted a poem/story in which the main character has a tent in her bedroom as part of a dream (http://adelaidepoet.blogspot.com/2009/11/dream-geographers.html) and here you've got one in real life. You're my hero! :)

This has to be the best tent in the world. Truly, it's lovely. :)

Daisy said...

I can see why.

Hyla said...

How freakin fabulous is that!!!!!

Are those sheets you used?

Mandy said...

Gorgeous! The top picture has a cool illusion going on: the lighting on the blue cloth makes it look like there are giant hands underneath the cloth. I spent a few minutes looking at it trying to figure out how you spliced the photos together. Anyone else see it, or should I lay off the coffee?

Vera said...

I'm in love!! Soooo magical :)

colormekatie said...

It was all made with sheets, curtains, rope, and safety pins!

Ariel said...

A million times better than any tent I have ever built. Love it. I might have to try again sometime.
