Can we get a little love for downstate Illinois, please?!? Despite what most people think, there is more to Illinois than Cook County. Come on down to our neck of the woods and enjoy the great little river towns along the Mississippi like Grafton and Alton where you can find all kinds of great antiques and architecture. And we're only 25 minutes away from downtown St. Louis (and I TOTALLY agree with you about the City Museum!).

The very first movie that popped into my mind when I was reading this post was Bedknobs and Broomsticks with Angela Lansbury. I loved that movie as a kid. In fact, I might have to check Netflix and see if it's offered!

mginwa--I'm sure you have probably already thought of this, but have you tried National Geographic? They used to have really great maps that they would include in each magazine. I found some really cool maps for my nieces and nephews at the local library book sale and they all came from National Geographic. Just a thought.

I bought my husband a blueprint for Christmas that is 42" X 30" and it's way too expensive to frame. Even with a 50% off coupon from Michael's it was nearly $300. I only paid $25 for the blueprint. Does anyone have any suggestions for a cheap way (and stylish) way to frame them?
