Swinging


Come sit with me for a while on the porch swing.  How ‘bout an iced tea or  lemonade.  Where should we sit while we visit?


The one suspended from heavy ropes with the fabulous tropical fabrics?   It  says  “Let’s have tropical punch.”

What's better than a porch swing overlooking the ocean?   Why two, of course!  Make them nice and wide enough  (so you don’t roll off)  for a nap.

Perhaps this one,   black perked up with bright yellow. 


Crispy white accented with bright reds.



How cute is this Adirondack swing?



We could enjoy  a swing under the shade of the trees.

I’m still dreaming  in fairy-tale land.

Until next time, Honey

  26. Hello! Love your beautiful blog! I was just today talking with a friend who lives in England, who said he's never sat on a swing. I said, "oh my goodness, you've never sat on a porch or patio swing? He replied, "No, we don't have porches!" Hummm....I'd never thought of that! I hope you'll visit my blog at http://artbookstea.blogspot.com/

  45. Oh Honey, we are having a deck built over the creek and I want one of these swing beds. Hubby thinks they are a bit expensive, but I think it would be such a cool way to take a nap in the fresh air (after it cools off of course.)
