As a kid I loved swinging. Actually I still love it. I always tried to swing as high as possible to see if my toes could touch the sky. Then how my belly tickled when I came back down. I used to sit on a swing for hours.
Now my grown up behind does not fit on any playground swings anymore (not that grown ups are allowed to swing there anyway)so I will swing on either tire swings or a glider chair will do as well. I love sitting in a swing chair while enjoying a good book too. Oh and I love me a good hammock. Laying, swinging and watching the clouds go by. Have to put that on my shopping list. Ours broke a couple of years back and I miss it ever since.
I enjoy the back and forth movement, it is so soothing.
Why is it that this gives me such a pleasant feeling? I believe swinging relaxes the mind, calms you. The back on forth movement just has something soothing.
I think I need a swing back in my live, to wind down those hectic days.

All those memories inspired me to work on a Mouse wreath. I wanted Spring, I wanted flowers, I wanted fun and I wanted it to move. And I think I accomplished it.
The only problem I have now is, do I put it in my shop so somebody can have it in their house or do i keep it? Or do I just make another one?
Then I went to Zibbet to see what kind of swings I could find there:
Are these cute or what. This just makes me want to go outside and get on a swing.
Swinging makes me feel free. Free from the hectic, the daily routine, my thoughts and so much more. Swinging is like therapy.
I had to share this one too
sometimes you just have to be naughty ….
