the ultimate beehive

If you know me at all, you know I have a penchant for hexagons. The hexagon, a shape that speaks the zen of the busy beehive or the wired manors of chickens (the oldest domesticated animal on Earth), symbolizes the unity and structure of the farmgirl life—a framework for the proper order of things, a pattern for life. In unwritten feminine language, it is a standard for farmgirls, or for that matter, the ordinary honeybee or the hen, rank and file workers that move the work along. It says that all things are to be done decently and in order, and that small things add up.

Add that to the latest in TV treats, Treehouse Masters, and you’ll come up with a recipe for the perfect getaway, honeybee. Take a look …

    Wow, what a wonderful treehouse. I love everything about their inspiration and how it all turned out. It is a true work of art and what a get-a-away place. Perfect for conversation, quiet or napping!

    I need to study more about the hexagon. Your use of the shape in your magazine was really the first time I gave it much thought. Clearly, there is more to learn if I plan to be a “well educated” Farmgirl!

    Oh my gosh it really does look like bees built it. The stained glass window in the front door is beautiful!!! I have a feeling you are going to make one of your own ~ sure would like one myself! Funny you should post this today. I spent last night watching Tiny houses looking for small space ideas.

  3. Love the beehive concept and the exterior and the ” bones ” of the interior. But…. what possesed their decorator to use pop art decor, (aside from the neat hexagon hanging shelves)?
    Yep ,on my bucket list is another treehouse ( bigger and better than the one I built , but actually lived in for nearly a year, when I was 13 )
