The Love of a Bohemian Mama

Build a Fort {Contest}
{inspired by Booooooom}

One of our favorite things to do in our home is to gather all of the pillows and quilts and make the biggest fort we can; and once the fort is complete, we snuggle underneath to tell stories, play, and laugh.  I have to admit that when I was a little girl, the fort building was an activity that only my brothers participated in; but now that I am a fort building Mama, I can't believe that I missed out on all of that fun. But I am making up for lost time; and I have also come to the realization that fort building is for all ages! {and I highly recommend it}

Recently I came upon an archived, fort building contest, hosted by Booooooom, and inspired by the book, "Where the Wild Things Are;" which "is filled with references to building a world out of things from your every day life." 


I love the fort building contest, so much, and on so many levels; that I am hosting a similar contest here:

Design and construct a fort of any size and shape, using things you love. Take a picture of your fort. Email it to me here

I will post all entries next Thursday; and then I will invite all Lovers to vote. The winner will be announced June 30th. The winner will receive their choice of a 16x16 pillow from The Vintage is for Lovers Pillow Collection. {All entries must be submitted by Wednesday, June 22nd.}



 Have fun!!! And please share the Build a Fort Contest with all your friends, readers, and followers. 

xoxo
Samantha

  10. Okay so I'm just giving you a heads up and letting you know that we are SO doing this- I told the monkeys about it a few days ago and they have been plotting their next fort- Just FYI I'm not knocking down walls although this has been suggested.
