You even make a noose look cool ;)

Nuts & knots & nooses & twining vines & trees & tousled tendrils-- these are a few of my favorite Ces things! Well, maybe not nooses, but definitely the other ones. I think there must be a tire swing on the other end of that rope... I hope so anyway...

An interesting way to spend the afternoon swinging. I could make good use of this.

Your leftmost nut looks like it has a tiny Jesus on it. Hehehe

What a wonderful swing you've made us, Ces, I simply must try it out.

Waitaminute... this swing is way too tight around my rump, and getting tighter.. !

Love coming to this blog! You never know what you're going to find! Well, lately eggs, but who would have expected a NOOSE!? Supremely creative take on this week's prompt, not to mention well drawn! And your nuts are great too! **That sounds a bit....dirty.....** ;)

Ooh, I just love your vines and leaves and curly bits. Quite a beautifully rendered rope aside from well, the whole noose aspect. More beautiful acorns but sadly I could not find the tiny Jesus Bella mentioned. Though I think I see a tiny gnome cottage in the last one! (Or I have lost my mind. Which happens periodically.)
