Hi Laura, I love globes, too. In fact, just today while junking with a friend, I found 3 globes. Now, mind you, I do have one at home, and how many does a person really need? I love the magazine pictures where there is a shelf filled with different sizes of globes. I want a collection like that! But I still have just one. Linda

I have a globe obsession too. I think I inadvertently passed it on to my son....half of my globes went back to school with him this fall to display on a shelf in his apartment. Now I'm on the search for more!

I love globes too. They are so popular right now too. I've only come across a couple at antique stores and sales. One was too junky and the other hubby said no :S

ITA. The mystery of all those places I've never been, all right there on a beautiful globe. They are mysterious to me. Weird?

Sue said...

Well that was fun!

Just too cute! And, I'm going to rename our family room to "the nap room" since Hubby uses it for that just about every day. :o) Happy week!
