collection / globes:

February 7, 2013

If you like antiques and vintage, chances are you have a globe in your home ;) We have quite a few in our collection. I know globes are way over-done but there's something that just doesn't get old about them. It's nice to look at a globe and remember the world is pretty big, keeps a lot of stuff in perspective! Anyway, here's a round up of globe-related images .. decor, diy's, and some fun globe stuff you can buy. We even sell a globe necklace in the shop, it's one of my favorites :)

  10. I love globes too!! I posted a blog (http://creatingforourcreator.wordpress.com/2011/04/05/the-allen-home-maps/) about the maps/globes I have in my house a few years ago too... but now that we are finally working on our office, there is going to be a wall just of maps and I even found a large compass for the wall! So exciting!

  13. I'm drooling and can't stop. Maybe because I'm a bit of a map and globe addict, but this is love at first sight. The first photo is amazing. Whoever put that together is a genius and the globe bowl, ahhh I want it!!!!
    Thank you for this post.
