Kathy's Tower ~ A Folly

Photo courtesy of shedstyle.com { folly owner Kathy Fries}


I love that word folly ~ I wish I could use it in everyday conversations. It's just a fun word to say. The photo above is called "Kathy's Tower" and I couldn't resist putting it in a post.


A folly is a building constructed strictly as a decoration, having none of the usual purposes of housing or sheltering associated with a conventional structure {according to Wikipedia}.


I love how you can just see the staircase to access it. With all those windows, and the french doors, you can probably see all around. I especially love the detail given to the different architectural elements ~ the railing, the roof, the cupola, the peaks on each corner and over the door.


What a lovely little getaway to read, nap, dream.

OMG What a awesome gorgeous place to go relax. I have never seen anything so pretty. Did you pick it out yourself, or tell them how to make it ? I wish I was there right now. I could look out my window ever day to look at that. Have a fun time in there.. Kath'

Couldn't we all, Marie? ; )

That makes two of us, Heather!

I WISH this was mine, Kath'! No, this belongs to another woman named Kathy, but I couldn't resist because, obviously, I'm a Kathy {and I think all Kathy's should have one}. I'm sure you'd agree! : )

Hope you have a lovely week dear Kathy, much love: Evi

Hello there Miss Eve! So glad to see that you posted and that you are having a nice visit. Thank you for coming by ~ this folly makes me think of a treehouse for adults {but folly sounds cooler than treehouse}!

I'll bet its cool up there on a hot summer day too. A pitcher of iced tea, a pillow and a book - I'd be set for the day!
