We’ve been enjoying a spectacular Fall in Edmonton with warm days and beautiful colours everywhere.
It’s typically time to think about ‘Fall cleaning’ and all that entails. This year, for me, it’s a little busier than usual. We’re emptying a storage locker, trying to decide what to keep, what to give away and where to store everything. So when I came across this Teepee at our community park, it got me thinking.
The simplicity seemed very attractive. Tree branches for pegs means you’ll never be ‘missing’ one. A simple flap for a door, affords a pleasant view of the great outdoors. The handy sunroof, lets the sunshine in or a beautiful view of the stars to enhance your dreams. I suppose you could tuck away a few of your favourite things in a sack, but there’d sure be a lot less dusting and cleaning. Am I right ladies?
Honestly, some days, just a few good friends and some music is enough to fill your soul.
Then again, I hate to beat on the same ol’ drum (excuse the Teepee pun), “life can not just be about the necessities”. I think this Teepee could do with a little bunting. Can’t you just picture it? A Boom-Pee-Tee?
I’m not a professional Teepee decorator, but I think that does make it a little more Boomdee-ized (yes that word). Where would I get such a glorious thing you ask? From the lovely and effervescent Dani at Teddy and Tottie of course. As you may or may not know, I recently ordered mine in my favourite colours and the parcel arrived two days ago.
I opened it with giggles and squeals the whole way through. Not only did I receive the beautiful hand crafted bunting, Dani sent TWO!! She also included lovely, lovely treasures, wrapped in pretty sea foam and pink doilies and string, that have filled the Boom-Room with love. Thank you so very much Dani! You have spoilt me at every turn.
I honestly can’t stop looking at it, I think it’s too adorable. Who am I kidding, simplify and live in a Tee-pee? My momentary silliness vanished without a trace the moment I strung my cheery bunting. I could live with less, but that’s no fun at all.
Oh dear, mom wasn’t talking about you Blossum ❤
