So many great ideas here. My favorite thing is the idea for displaying family photos. It’s so interesting that a sweet family photo can become modern art when blown up and cropped in different ways. It’s always a challenge to display personal things without sacrificing style.

I love daffodils–ours are not up yet in the northeast. I recently found Lonny Magazine and have been reading the archives. I have always loved Paul Newman–I know, he wasn’t on the list! I am looking forward to checking out the Stephmodo blog for inspiration.

I lost a child two years ago and I think that the blog as grief journal is a good idea. I know that my thoughts and feelings were bordering on profound during my period of grief. I wanted to step outside myself for awhile. I think writing would have been a good outlet for doing that. In regards to the helpful comments: I have a friend who always refers to our baby that died by his name, Francis. So often people are afraid to speak about the person that died and as a parent, you need people to acknowledge that the death really happened. The moment of your loss is so crushing that you need to talk about it. People might think that people who are grieving aren’t paying attention to the details, but every detail is magnified and committed to memory. I’m so thankful that I could see God’s love in those details. I’m thankful that I made it to the other side of that pain.

Similar to the TExas spring bluebonnets but because they are the state flower, it is illegal to collect them;(

I was trying to follow through with your link to art.com to order some blown up pics of my family while the 40% off sale is available, but I’m having trouble locating the area to upload picures. Can you give me some additional directions to do this? Grazie!

It was gorgeous! It was my happy first sign of Spring while we were there.

All I have to say is Harrison Ford, Denzel, and John Stamos have aged gracefully and are still, IMHO, heartthrobs! Patrick Dempsey has definitely grown into his looks and is my celeb crush! I love the lyric posters, then again I love lyrics!!

I know that they can grow wild and are native that area of Europe (Spain, specifically). For some reason my mom liked to plant jonquils instead of daffodils. Cheaper, maybe? ;)

Both of them are in the Loire Valley. All of them are beautiful! Chambord I like because of the winding staircases- apparently two wound around each other so that wife & mistress could avoid each other (gasp!). Chenonceau because it’s built directly over a river and has an art museum, so it’s like a 2-for-1. :-) Have fun!

Old homestead owners planted them in their flower beds and though the houses are long gone, the daffodils have taken over. There are different kinds and some have evolved together to make an even different breed. We’ve even been lucky enough to stumble up on an old homestead site that was taken over by wisteria. A good acre or 2 of nothing but purple blooms from the ground to the tip tops of trees.
