is for Maps.

We love Maps!
They are so beautiful-old and new! There is something about maps and globes that is so enchanting. They allow you to dream and make plans in your head. I love all the details and colors! I love to give globes to newlyweds because they seem to symbolize all of the places they will go together in life. Very romantic!
I have a large retractable map of the world like this one above my bed and I love it!
There is another one of Africa in my living room. I love these old educational maps and look for them at every flea market.

Such a great idea to put the map in the window panes of the door!

I love this bench with the two framed maps above it!

What a great workroom!

Globes and a map! I have been collecting little globe banks like this for years. I love them when they are a bit beaten up by time.

Rach just got a map like this one to wallpaper the walls in her son's bedroom. I can't wait to get started and see the finished project!

Love the blinds!

Gorgeous dresses made of maps by Elizabeth LeCourt.

A map and a silhouette in one room - two of my favorite things!

Love the framed maps up the stairs!
