Wendy Houses


(Above: This one is mine. Go pick yours.)

I'm not sure if I ever stumbled across the term "Wendy House" before today. Apparently, they're playhouses that call to mind the tiny house that Peter Pan built for Wendy when she was injured in Neverland.

From now on, I think I shall refer to structures like the one shown above as Wendy Houses. "Playhouse" sounds so silly. And there's nothing silly about a good Wendy House. The best are slightly sinister.

Messy Nessy Chic has a fabulous photo gallery of 20 examples of the species. (Including the one built for Queen Elizabeth herself.)

For all of you who think this post is a little frilly, just imagine all the trouble one might cause with a tiny, secret house of one's own.

Oh, these are so adorable! I'd put mine in the woods, by a little pond, and I could sneak out there and read. :)
