there should be a nursery rhyme about sitting on a swing ... but i can't think of one so i can't cleverly use it here as a title ....

here's another wall of art ... done in my efforts to be done with the moving in process .... so that we can just start living here without so many things on the to do list! we are SO close ... a few boxes ... a bit of organizing ... and lots of pics to hang .... where did i get all those framed photos and where did i have room for them before? all of this art is in girl.beck.artist's room .... it is mostly her art, her mom's art, or her grandma's art ..... with a bit more thrown in for good measure ... below, is the final piece of her joy .... just what she needed to complete her room .... maybe every room needs a swing ....
have you ever had a swing inside? 
do you ever sit in a swing? 
where is your favorite swing ?

lovely again!

how about 'swingin' on a star'? not a nursery rhyme, but a fun song.

Such a great color for her room!!
I love the colors you chose for your home. I have a swing on my front porch that I love.

see you there! said...

girl.beck.artist's room is a dream come true for any girl.

I haven't sat in a swing for awhile. Probably since the last time we took the GD to the park. She loved to swing when she was small.

I thought of swingin' on a star as well! ha Dolly Parton sang 'Sittin' on the Front Porch Swing'. That's close.

I love her new room! Especially the low built in bookcase. Wonderful!

Robert Louis Stevenson - "How I love to go up in a swing, up in a swing so high....." would have to look up the rest, but I think you have that poetry book! It was mine as a child.....
Love the new room with swing and all the art between the doors! next photos should be boy's room!
You need a photo wall - to accomodate all those photos you have!

I am seriously thinking of kicking all y'all out of that house and taking it over ... just for me!! :) her room just may be my very most favorite of all ... would you believe me if I told you that MY swing was my BED?!? (it's true ... I wasn't always the brightest star in the sky ... is way better in theory). :)

This would be heaven. I love hammocks and swings, and when I was little I used a tire swing outside the house all the time, just swinging and singing. I think if I sat in this in the house, it would put a strain on the rafters...?

I'm a big fan of just plastering pictures I like all over my wall. I have a bunch of that in the office at work, because there's not much wall space at home. Your wall looks great so far... more!
