HELP!!! Please suggest some (visual) options for us. We'd like to showcase the windows, rather than cover them up. But with the different sizes, we are having a dilemma.
Thanks so much in advance!

A lot of good ideas here. Are you going to do this yourself, or just 'buy' something? If you
can sew - there are so many beautiful materials with "wonderful" patterns for either girls or boys. You can make an easy baby quilt with matching bumpers pads quite easily & then your window treatment. I'd decide on colors, themes (animals, flowers, etc) first then decide on the window treatment.
I know these photos are not great, but all I had on me was my cell phone. This was growing at a client's yard and we noticed it blooming in a very shady corner near their house. I am
struggling to identify it. I took these photos on May 3, 2012.
It reminds me of Winter Jasmine (Jasminum nudiflorum) based on the leaves and similar shape of the flowers, but the flowers are appearing on the ends, not along the stems like Winter Jasmine. It is also not the season for winter jasmine. Thanks for the help.

This looks exactly like "Periwinkle" to me. Most often it's flower is lavender & I have had
a white one - but have never seen a yellow one. It loves the shade and flowers in the spring.
Over the years, we have made some interesting discoveries during project demo. Frequently, we unearth old newspapers like this one yesterday from 1940. "4 grapefruit for $.17... lamb chops $.25/ lb" tells a story of the good old days! Have you ever made any great discoveries during a project?

When we gutted to reno our kitchen we ripped out the wall across the front of the house so we
could properly insulate. Amazing what we found that previous owners used for insulation - old rags - including a very old pair of red longjohns & newspapers from the 20's. We also found a "Treasure Map" that some children had left. 2 - 3 years later when we cut down a tree in the back yard & had the root pulled out - out popped the "treasure".. an old mason jar with a few coins & some old jewellery! Great fun!
