"she gave him the world.."

"..ok, so it was a globe w/a lamp in it. But for the romantic that he was, it might have well been the world." {name this movie}

It is sunny here today. And warm. I spent the afternoon in the sunshine unpacking a shipment of globes. Poking at them at random to see what places would come up.

I've always liked the idea of having a map hanging around somewhere with pushpins in it to check off the places I've seen. Maybe a different color pushpin in places I'd like to go someday? {I like this idea a lot actually.}

I also like this room divider. Moco had this map made of their neighborhood and use it to catalog favorite places like shops and restaurants.

When I was a kid we had a giant map wall. It was really cool. I liked having a map around back then too. The rest of the images are of kids rooms I thought were fun. I'd like to do a kids room right now. {Just throwing that out there, maybe the universe will hear me and send me a kid client?}

It is not down in any map; true places never are. ~Herman Melville

A good traveler has no fixed plans, and is not intent on arriving. ~Lao Tzu

I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel's sake. The great affair is to move. ~Robert Louis Stevenson

Half the fun of the travel is the aesthetic of lostness. ~Ray Bradbury {could not agree more!}

{My sources: Click and find lots and lots of globes and maps. here and here too.}

I dislike feeling at home when I am abroad. ~George Bernard Shaw


  1. I know this, I know this!!! While You Were Sleeping!!!

  2. not a movie buff but love the maps, have you seen them made up into roll up blinds for windows? love that look and the color that comes thru when sunlight hits the back sides of them.

  3. Wanderlust....the feeling that there is always something better around the next bend in the road. Your next pushpin should go intoSouth America. Think what fun design ideas you could glean from a trip like that?

  4. I knew it EVEN with out Anonymous saying.....
    Miss you aunt Jenna!
    You know, I feel like you are my Aunt as well, so I miss you to!

  5. I didn't know the quote - I am such a loser! Cool map ideas. I like the one behind the glass panes on that door.
