Wild Things’ Forts III

More and more and more forts for our Wild Things’ Forts project with Weloveyouso. My favourite email so far comes from Caitlin and Ellie:

where the wild things are forts contest

Hi!

We transferred half of my living room into a double storey wonder land. We had the jazz blearing and the warm breeze flowing through our tiny window. we had lollies, an elephant tea pot, juice, lots of bubbles, blankets and pillows. We filled it with our favourite things, it was incredible. This photograph does not do it justice, it was simply the most cozy and happy place I’ve been for so long. I was high on life. If we don’t win, we don’t even mind, because this competition inspired us to have the most fun we’ve had since we actually were 5. Thankyou for the best day! It was heart breaking having to take it down.

    We decided to build a fort every weekend!!!!

    So inspirational, I remember as a kid thinking I was a smurf and turning our bedroom into a mushroom houses/village.

    This was so much fun and too painful to take down, but now that we will do it every week, no problem!!!!

    Much love and keep these fun projects comin’

    Looveeekaboomkabooooom!!!

    Loving the geek one with the boys, the bubble wrap and the X box! So cute! It’s really about gathering the things that make you most happy in life, just like the girls in the first picture said.

    Thanks for posting these colorful variations of forts and places of coziness!
