"Thank you to Jayne for our beautiful new swing from swingsandprettythings.co.uk Can't wait to get it back to the farm! Dx"!
From 1 to 100 everyone loves sitting on a Swing, from the memories it brings or just the look on a child face as they shout ‘higher, higher’. These are all truly a special addition to any garden.
Our Carved Oak Swings are beautiful, The Geronimo swing is perfect for the boys in your life. It is hand carved and perfect for hanging from the branch below where the tree house is built, but it can hang from a swing frame (not supplied) if that oak tree is little more than an acorn.
Our larger swings are hand carved exclusively for Swings & Pretty Things with the wording When I grow up I want to be a.... by Marnie Moyle. Choose from a choice of endings or personalise with your own wording making it as unique as the person receiving it.
They make the perfect place to sit and day dream or just watch the clouds go by.
Each of the large oak swings are individually hand crafted from different pieces of green oak therefore colour, size and shape may vary. As green oak dries and weathers it will start to change in shape and colour. This should be seen as one of the beautiful characteristics of using natural materials and is a natural and normal process and just adds to your swings individuality.
There is no need to treat your swing seat with any chemicals or preservatives as oak contains natural tannins that will help to naturally preserve the wood.
