A Taste of Days Gone By: Tree Swings and DIY Journals

Let me introduce you to a great little site, that offers things of quality reminiscent of times gone by. Peg and Awl....

A Swing for One: Though there is a baby on this picture, you can swing on it too. Great for tweens and teens too.

Made of reclaimed old growth pine that was once a floor joist for a 19th century house. The seat is finished with natural tung oil and measures 10.5 x 10.5 x 2.5" / 26.67 x 26.67 x 6.35cm. Includes 20 feet of 3/4" rope with 695 pound tension limit. $100.00 CLICK HERE.

They have a bigger swing for two, but a little pricey @$200. Still, if it's just what you've been looking for, I'm here to give you THE LINK.

In the age of laptops and Kindles, if someone on your list still loves the feel of a book in their hand or writing in a journal, this journal kit may be this Anselm Bookbinding Kit for $28which both teaches the art of hand bound bookbinding and gives the recipient the satisfaction of using the book themselves after - or giving it to someone special. Click that link to see a video on how-to. TIP: This could be a really great gift for a Tween, to get them back to basics before it's too late!!

There's a small selection of jewelry, and things for the garden, kitchen, photography. Though it's not cheap, there are some reasonably priced things. What's worth a click-around is the uniqueness of what they offer.

And don't forget to bookmark their One of a Kind page and revisit often. A rotating list of treasures pop up here - and you may just find that rare thing that's perfect for your one hard to buy for person.
