Worldly keepsakes, A Global Idea

So I went to a flea market this weekend.  However, keep in mind it was NOT your ordinary flea market.  It was out in the middle of nowhere.  Literally.  Driving to it meant taking back roads, broken roads, one lane roads, muddy roads... need I say more?  So I really didn't anticipate finding much of anything and if I did, it would be something small.  Well, I was wrong...wow! The very first table I walked up to I see a globe.  You're probably thinking "What is so fascinating about a globe?"  Well, I never thought I'd be even remotely interested in a globe but when I saw Miss Mustard Seed's garage sale finds a few weeks ago, I had to have one.  Here is the one I found.  I paid $20 for it (what a bargain) AND it is circa 1920's pre-World War II!! That's what I love about it, it's Vintage!! 

So with this great find, I HAD to find more pictures of all the globes I could out there..I think I just found a new item to collect.. 




And here are some creative ways to use a globe.. I just love these ideas, very creative and nostalgic.  Most of all they are unique and different..love it!
