Spotlight Friday: life on a swing

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.

This is my brother and I , around 1975/76


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. duo

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.


Finding all those wonderful items on Etsy, which I put in a treasury for you just gets me all antsy.

I had to share this one too
