As a kid, I remember spending countless hours on the old tire swing hanging from our big tree out back. What fun it was! I’m sure many of you remember having one, too.

    Charming work Marsha…I remember having an old tire swing, too…thanks for the memories:)

  • Those old tire swings were one of the simple pleasures of childhood……don’t seem to be as many around anymore, but we still spot one here & there. Thank you for your comment.
