Yesterday morning I got up and discovered one of my kitchen cabinet hinges had broken during the night ~ the cabinet door was hanging by the bottom hinge. It's the second time that's happened to one of my cabinet doors in this house. Something I've never experienced in any other home. Strangeness.
Anyway, after taking my daughter to school, I headed to Lowes for replacement hinges and saw so much spring yumminess I could hardly focus on the purpose of my visit. Bulbs in boxes for forcing (cool bulbs too like Scillia, Dahlias, Callas, etc.), awesome garden lanterns that I've never noticed them carrying before, bazillions of orchids and of course tons of seeds and all the starting stuff that goes along with them. In a way I was glad my hinge broke ~ I hadn't planned a visit but now I'll be back to browse again.

After securing the hinge and rehanging my cabinet door, I got back to work on my latest project ~ a wall of photos. I see tons of AMAZING photos on the blogs I read and I always wonder what the photographer does with them. What do you do with your photos?? Something I've been wanting to do forever is frame and hang my favorites. Finally, I'm doing it!!
For this particular area, I'm using color photographs so I have to keep a consistent palette in mind but I am thinking I might replicate the idea with florals in black & white elsewhere. What do you think? Do you do this in your home? What happens to all your beautiful photographs? I'd love to hear.
