A-Frame Love

 I am currently having what you could call a mild obsession with vintage A-Frame houses.  The fascination for tiny old cottages, cabins, caravans and hippie homes is always there but A-Frames are definitely at the forefront at the moment.  It all started (or re-started) when I saw this image on Pinterest...


I fell in love with this tiny run down beauty.  I just itch looking at it, how I would love to get my hands on it and fix it up.  The setting is just perfect too!  It would be my artist oasis in the woods.  I can just imagine tea in the early morning sun on the tiny balcony above.  I die! 
 Seeing this place got me to thinking about some other A-Frames I have had a love affair with.  This being my first probably...


My cousin and I spent hours playing with this set.  We loved it.  I remember every detail of it distinctly.
  Would it be weird if I bought a vintage one for myself now, just so I could have it? I really want it.
There was also an A-Frame house I remember sneaking to as a kid.  Every summer we would go to a family cottage at a lake.  Us kids would sneak through the woods to explore the next place over.  It was a 70s A-Frame overlooking the lake.  Too-Cool and nobody was ever there.  It used to drive me nuts.  I always wanted to get inside.  Something along these lines...


A-Frames just have a feeling of whimsical romance don't they?  And their super rad lines and aesthetics are soooo up my alley. So much vintage groovy-ness!  Here's a couple more cuties for eye candy sake...




At least you know I'm doing something productive with my time ;)
Later guys
