A tree house card for childhood.
Tree houses are for wonder.
Tree houses are for snacks.
Tree houses are for whispers and snickers and echoes.
Tree houses are for everyone.
The cover of this nostalgic card shows a rustic club house sitting high on a tree. There’s a ladder to climb.
Open the card to see a tree house in 3-D, perched on branches high above the ground, accessible only by a tall ladder. The house is made of wood, and has 4 big windows and a viewing balcony. It sits with the birds and the squirrels. It’s a fort for kids.
Kids urgently require tree houses for top secret club meetings, scout rallies, confidential information, for escape from the mundane world and parents below.
Kids love a treetop fort where they can dream up plans and gather with friends. They fill tree houses with imagination and creative play. They make up secret rituals. And sometimes they nap.
The could be a birthday card for kids, and for adults who remember their childhood. It’s about creativity, privacy, imagination, celebration. Invite your closest friends to a house-warming party in the pines, a clubhouse, a retreat. This card would make a memorable thank you note from a real estate agent to a client. How about an invitation to a gathering, a family or class or fraternity reunion, or a Mad Hatter tea party?
No boys allowed.
No girls allowed.
Home is where the heart is.
Less is more.
Some things can only be understood when you’re in a treehouse, with a stack of warm cookies and a book.
Thank you for choosing me as your realtor. I’ll find you the perfect house for you.
A tree house, a free house,
A secret you and me house,
A high up in the leafy branches
Cozy as can be house.
A street house, a neat house,
Be sure to wipe your feet house
Is not my kind of house at all-
Let’s go live in a tree house.
