Recycled Maps

We were out of town yesterday, which resulted in us missing a hail storm (darn the luck) and my toddlers getting a chance to see a newborn calf at my dad's farm.  I also bought an interesting book called Matched, about a 2012-ish society on steroids.   The sequel doesn't come out for another couple of months, so that's a bummer. 

Today, maps.  What to do with them when you *think* GPS is incredible (hahaha no) or they change the roads around every couple of years, rendering your copy obsolete?   Click pictures to see shop they originate from.

mrgnome bowl will make sure your items won't get lost...get it?  Lost, because it's made of...ah forget it.  Moving on.

ThePaperSnail made a teeny-tiny banner.


colouredsquares wants all eyes on you with these funky-cool vintage map earrings

jarck101 has adorable pouches with map designs on them.  

Thank you so much for reading my blog, oh guess what, I'm becoming somewhat more technologically educated.  Was able to figure out how to put click-able pictures on my FB page, check it out I'm very proud, and also have a small webpage now.  Of course, they all link to my Etsy shop.  And be sure to practice random acts of kindness, and learn something new (like all 50 states are listed across the top of the
Lincoln Memorial on the back of the $5 bill-no way time to break out the magnifying glass!)


  1. Hey! Thanks for incluing my earrings in your post.
    I saw in a previous entry that this was inspired by a hatred of GPS. Preach it, sister! Paper maps are the best.
