I love your collections of globes! They are just fabulous. Currently decorating my boyfriend's new apt. and we're both obsessed with old maps. Picked up an amazing one in VT this weekend for $8! It's circa 1800s and has the world divided by religions. I'd love to see a photo of your vintage cake toppers. Some of my "found objects"/antiques will appear on my blog, over the coming months.

I love to take-on DIY projects that will eventually be gifts - whether a wreath, something knitted, an ornament, or even a big homemade meal for friends - I stay motivated by imagining how happy those people will be when they see the finished product. It makes all the trial and error worth it! You can see some of finished projects at

I've been searching for a map like this for our new apartment - one that scrolls down, like they have in Elementary schools, but a little more antinuqued - just like this one!!! Where did you get it?
