    And more I ‘d love to find a place for. There are all kinds of fun things you can do with them for sure.

  2. I love maps, too. I think it is best when it’s used as a large wallpaper/ backdrop for walls. It creates such a big impact.

    Adore your inspirational pictures, too. Great blog, a new follower!
