geography is back! map the walls and globally speaking...

as a kid, i loved geography...

it hasn't been it's own subject in school for

decades... ever since it merged with history

and turned into social studies.

Ballard Designs

i loved drawing maps...and making the legends.

i would outline the country in a deeper color and

lightly shade the map in a pastel to match!

~ cartography~

now that we have map quest and

 global positioning systems

 what do we do with all of the travel maps?

those that were once


gas station attendant washed your windows and

actually pumped your gas! Whew! I had to say it!

Those were the days!

i posted this image from Little Green Notebook

a while back when i was talking about skirts...

and how much i loved following the

stripes into the washer...but look left!

map the walls!

you can embrace the world too!

... like ~K from

she found

a crusty little tired brown world...

...and made it beautiful and whimsically chic!

i could wrap my arms around it and smile!
(also...notice the handmade French embossed
clay tags that she sells at her etsy shop!)

***'s to wrapping your arms around

someone that you love today!

and because of this little blog of mine...this

morning...i am visiting and having coffee with

lovelies all over this world! truly amazing!

so delightful!

{with love}

{... yep!...i said love 5 times in this post}

  1. I love maps and globes and so does my son!
    He has an old world map above his bed and he studies it all the time. He also has a big globe on his dresser and a tiny one on his night stand that he looks at every single night! I keep saying to him..I hope your not planning to live in one of these far away places! He has an adventerous mind!

    Great post Lynne!!
