Yes, yes.

David said...

Not opposed to the idea, but don't care for either of these. Nobody would sit in the first one when they could flop on that rockin old chesterfield across the room.

The second one...I don't know what it is. God knows I like old and rough and rustic, but the whole room is just bums me out.

Raina, where I live it is winter 8 months a year, and often I've dreamt of having a swing in the house to prevent 2 year old from bouncing off the walls. So yes.

Porch, sure. Living Room, well probably not the best idea I will hear today.

Pam Kersting said...

I'm with BlogAuthor on this one. For the toddler yes. For bigger kids ... not so much. How is the house hunting coming along?

Yes to #1, no to #2. tada

Oh yeah! Life's too short. If I had one of those amazing loft spaces with endless ceilings you better believe I would be cutting in line ahead of my kids.

Here are a few more I dug up:

{okay, you can have your blog back now, ;0) thanks for the mention!}

Yes, but I would be afraid the ceiling would come down...especially if certain people from my husband's family tried it....ha

BTW- J. just walked into the room and saw your post up on the screen and said, "dis is so funny, I want dat in my 'ome." I guess that's a resounding yes! :0)

Raina said...

Blog Author(s) - Hello and welcome!

Pam - I hope to announce some good news in a couple of weeks.

NKP - You crack me up. Those are some swingin' photos. ;)

If you have a room as big as that second one isn't it the law to have something ridiculous and wonderful in it?

I would.

drollgirl said...

NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

i am the only killjoy here? figures. outside for swings would be fab. inside? not so much. at all.

I would say yes to the 'special' swing that only consenting grown ups are allowed to use!!! No to the rest thanks. I dont wanna watch people have fun!

Debi said...

If I did not have boys - I might consider, but since they would either hurt themselves or the swing, that would be dangerous! :)
