Tiny Trees and Big Wishes

Living in a tiny house is fun. Sometimes the constraints of being in a small space make for creative solutions... like our Tiny House Christmas Tree. In the past we've had ornaments on a mobile hanging from the livingroom ceiling and lights strung all around.

Up here in Seattle it's getting colder (and we even have a bit of snow in the forecast), but we're toasty and comfortable in our tiny space.

Below is a link to an animation. It is in response to the question:

What would happen if everybody posted or tweeted a single word on a single day?

Could it raise awareness? Would it help folks stop, for one minute, even one second, and consider how the world could be different?

Of course, there are a billion reasons why we might not all post / tweet the same word on the same day.

But what if?

Wishing all of you Happy Holidays and a happy, healthy and peacefilled New Year.


  1. Hello Jeff and Arlene,
    For someone about to begin work on my own tiny house/workshop your blog is most helpful, thanks! I make my living as an artisan that only needs a small space so that is the main consideration in my design. The design is ready and construction begins next month. I am also in Seattle. I have a few general questions for someone who is living in this manner particularly in the Seattle area. If you don't mind a quick chat perhaps we can catch up via email and I can show you my design and the type of work that I do.
    Hope to hear from you,

  2. Hi Robert,
