Favorite Photos

Today I've been thinking about two of my favorite people...
my adorable grandparents.

I've also been thinking about this photograph of them when they were first married:

Which was more than 65 years ago!

That's a serious lifelong commitment and a wonderful accomplishment.

I've also been thinking about ways to get that first photograph, which is small at only a few inches by even fewer inches, onto my dining room wall in a BIG way!

Here are some ideas I discovered on Houzz.com:

My plan is to take the photo to Staples, and have them blow it up super big.
I've done this before and it cost me less than $15 because it's on inexpensive paper.

Then I want to frame it in a large Ribba frame from Ikea that I already have that's currently being used elsewhere in my home.

AND...I'm thinking about painting the frame a bright tomato red color to make it really stand out!
Elle Decor

I think this works for me!
