Maptastic!

I love maps! They remind me of places I like and people I like. Also, maps just look really cool--the colors, shapes, the lines. Maps are great for all kinds of crafts (if you can bear to cut them up), and I just like them on the wall. My favorite wall in our place is the wall with our San Francisco map. I'm not too crazy about anything else I've done with our place, but I like this wall simply because of the map. Our map is pictured here last. Here are some other great examples of showing off your maps! Sources listed below. 
Last but not least, our map of San Francisco!

Great post! I have an old school map of the US and love it. I would like to find a world map. I'm on the look out.
Enjoy your day!

Leigh,
I enjoyed looking through your blog today--saw a reference to it on decor 8 comments section. I too live in London (part time) and will follow your blog with interest. I've been writing one for not quite a year about the things I've seen there--great city, right? Hope our paths cross sometime soon.

Funny...I found a bunch of old maps from old National Geographics in my basement. It's amazing what is to be found in this basement.
