Map it out

I have travel on the mind, and would love to incorporate it in my house.  This was spurred by an antique-y globe that I bought the Mister last year for Christmas, and an old post by the fabulous Mrs.Limestone about passport art. Oh, and the fact that I love - LOVE - to travel.

Isn't that a great idea to remember your travels? I always get so sad when I have to start a new passport and I "lose" all my stamps. This is a perfect venue to feature them.

I have tons of photos from my travels that I could frame, but I also like the look of framed maps.

Don't worry, I will not be doing maps on walls and lamps and books, but I like the variety of options!
I initially was planning to do this in our office, but I think it's just too pretty to be tucked away...now thinking that this idea will find a home in our living room.

You have inspired me to take out all the topographical maps of the Ontario Parks we had as table decorations at for our wedding and finally use them to decorate our home...I'm not willing to cut them up...

I framed a series of flight maps for my brother who has his pilots licence for Christmas. They were both interesting and visually stunning!

We have 2 framed maps that are just waiting to be hung. I am trying to figure out the perfect place. I think they make a room! Love the pictures you found.

I looove vintage maps. My husband just ordered a bunch from ebay and we're just looking for the perfect spot to hang them! I love the passport idea too.
