My inner kid would LOVE to have a swing in my house! I've also always wanted a hammock chair inside... Same swinging effect, but much more comfortable! Beautiful blog post!

I read the comment above, and absolutely laughed out loud. My sister and I grew up with a little girl from an amazing family, with an incredible house. The loft had a swing attached to the rafters, and we would careen clear across the house, dropping to a matress/couch below. I loved that place, and this post brought me right back. Why not have an indoor swing? Hmm. Now I am thinking!
