I really like these old school maps & old maps reused for other purposes!Leslie
I'm not the best reading maps but I sure do love the way they look!!I would like a big ol' antique one &/or a globe. These pics just make me want one MORE!Happy Thursday-Jen
Just cut up a huge map and turned into a 6 piece grid in my kiddos room!! love the map look!
I so enjoyed your post. We are big fans of travel, geography and maps, one world map hangs beautifully framed in our dining room and is almost daily used for 'were is' contests, a USA map I did cut in half and stuck it behind two large glass door panels in our family room, so the kids learn to see the states, capitals and it all is more fun.Would love one day a wall large enough for an antique map of Paris! Love that look.
I'm a close your eyes girl but would not recommend it. Balance is best!!I use to own several of these vintage school room type maps & did not hang on to them. Boy how I regret that now. Great post!
Slightly..but never in stone.. you just never know where life will take you or when. I am all about goals and life plans and working them but some things just happen when they are suppose to. Love the maps. I just bought a huge one for a wall in my living room.
I'd LIKE to say my life is mapped out, but if you had told me three years ago that I'd be living in Brazil, I would've choked. So much for maps...But, I DO love these!
I am such a map person and my husband is one to just point. love the images.
I try to remember that I can close my eyes and point all I want, but ultimately God has a plan...I just need to be willing to choose His - instead of my own!
YES! The map door. No other words needed...
Oh, my that map in the door is fantastic! I so adore maps. lovely post.
To answer your question, I feel like no matter how hard we plan, mapping out our lives will inevitably lead to letdowns here and there. Better to be easy-going in my opinion. I think overall people will be happier. On another note, my sis is obsessed with maps. I'm definitely forwarding this her way. :)
Love them. Know of any good places here to get any? I want one for my den...
I LOVE vintage maps. I want one so, so bad...am always on the lookout...and never find one :(
Love your style and blogs! Thank you so much for your advice, I will use it all!!
The map door is such a great idea!! I love maps and globes - we have 4 or 5 large vintage globes, and I jusy love the colors!xox,Susanconfessionsofasineater.blogspot.com
I'm directionally challenged.I have ZERO sense of direction... but that kinda makes me loves these maps even more. Can't live with them, can't live without them. xoRH
can never get enough of maps in decor. and i'm definitely a planner in the short run. in the long run... spin and point!
I love maps and globes! And these are just delicious pictures.
love these, they look great!thank you
Hated maps 30 years ago in social studies class, but love them now as a decorating material.
so many pretty maps/ globes... there's a vintage tuquoise globe i LOVE at a thrift store near me taht I've been eyeing but I already have a globe.. these pics are making me want it!!
SO great, that blue of the water is so perfect against white. Love this post! Love this blog!
I have a small obsession with maps. I love them all-on the wall, folded, and globes. Ironically though, I don't own a single one! I keep looking for the perfect one to start my collection, but these photos have inspired me to just get out and start already!
I love the idea of closing your eyes and pointing. I am dying to do that for a trip next year...spontaneity is such an attractive concept. Although it is rare to find these days.
lovely images as always.happy weekend!cristin @ simplified bee

love the map in the baby's room...start them early.
I've been loving all these antique maps and globes popping up in interiors lately. Such a great way to add a bit of age/vintage on the cheap!
love this post...can't get enough of the map trend!
maps make me swoon. love the post!
Hello there! Just discovered you and saw this post about maps, how wonderful. One of my blogs is about the reno that we are going to be doing soon and one thing I wanted to do, was to add a map of our travels and future travels into the room. This gives me a few ideas, thanks.
Enjoyed your blog I love all the pink it is my favorite color and enjoyed all your pictures. Thanks for sharing.
I really love the map in the inset of the door.
