Reading is a favorite passion of mine. I get really cranky when life gets so busy that I fail to make time to read. I've written before on the merits of creating a literary rich environment for the little ones in your life. You can read that blog article by clicking here. Over the past few months, I've been experimenting with various art and home decor pieces that can foster a love of learning in children and adults alike. I'm particularly proud of this latest offering - literary tree swings!
As of now, I have two available styles. One swing reads, "And the tree was happy." This is a quote from the Shel Silverstein book, "The Giving Tree," which is one of my favorite children's books of all time!
The other styled swing reads, "All good things are wild and free." This is a quote from poet, author and transcendentalist, Henry David Thoreau, who wrote, "Walden." Thoreau was a champion of human rights and lived a simple life in tune with nature. Encourage thoughtful days of play and create a literary environment in your own home with one of our beautiful solid wood tree swings!
Each swing measures 24" long by 9" wide and is made of one solid 1.5" depth pine board stained a beautiful dark espresso stain with cream colored lettering. Each swing is already tied, knotted and ready to be hung from your favorite tree or swing set - just add the included rope for length! Each swing includes nautical rope, which is used to tie up boats and rated up to 370lbs working load for strength & stability. As always, please double check your swing before allowing any children to use it for safety. PaperCanvasEtc is not liable for any injury sustained while using this product. Each tree swing has been finished with marine grade polyeurethane for years of beauty and the rope ends have been sealed with a waterproof sealant to prevent unraveling. Both swings can be purchased by clicking here on my Etsy shop - PaperCanvasEtc.
I can also make swings with custom quotes or sayings on them, as well, which would be wonderful for a wedding gift, wedding proposals, anniversary gift, birthday, holiday or even a housewarming gift! Contact me to start designing your custom tree swing today! Happy Designing!
