Make a tent

Hello lovelies! Thank you so much for entering my giveaway! And for your book suggestions. I will compile a list and post it next week sometime.

Anyway, for awhile now I've been fascinated by pretty tents. Like the beautiful one in The Holiday with Jude Law's little girl's tent.

This was probably my favourite scene from that movie. I thought their tent was completely magical and pretty. I can see their imagination exploding in there. It made me want to build my own.

Here are a few more beautiful tents that I found.

I know that if I ever make one it will be made of pretty sheets, soft pillows, maybe some candles , a few stars strung up and fairy lights. It would a be a place to imagine, dream and share fairy tales while drinking hot chocolate and eating cupcakes.

Have a lovely weekend! And don't forget you can still enter my giveaway until Tuesday 23rd of March.

P.S. It's Jason's 25th birthday on Saturday and I really want to name a star after him as part of my gift. He loves looking at stars and I thought then he could have fun looking for his star!

I just love the tent in The Holiday. My friend Sarah and I have actually talked about building our own fort in my family room and studying in it. I think it would be delightful!!

Emma Jade said...

"The Holiday" is SUUUUH a cute movie and that is by far my favorite scene. Jude Law in glasses? and a sensitive one at that?! my fave.

you and husband need to take pics of your tent if you make one :)

oh my gosh, i looooved making tents as a kid. and often times i'd make more than one and have tunnels going from one to another. when i have kids, we're definitely making tents together. :)

A pretty tent in which to read books by the glow of fairy lights, while drinking hot chocolate and nibbling cupcakes? Sounds heavenly to me!

Sandra said...

The tents look so magical. sigh. :)

When I was little, my couch was in front of a window. So my idea of a tent was draping the window curtain over the couch and covering the entrances with couch pillows. lol

ps. There is an award for you waiting at my blog. :)

Cassie said...

Gracie they are all so pretty! I had completely forgotten about that scene in The Holiday - may just have to re-watch it now to have another look.

Have a super weekend
