As I discussed here, I have a huge thing for globes, vintage maps, whimsical souvenirs and momentos gathered on my travels. This love extends to my walls, and I love foraging antique stores and flea markets for antique postcards and maps of cities that are special to me.
The sudden arrival of late Autumn’s short days and frosty weather have me craving cosy nights in, which of course triggers my nesting urge and the desire to fill my home with things I know I’ll love to look at each day (the past week I’ve been all about masses of scented candles, lovely baking smells, piles of good books, and gorgeous flowers in every room of the house).
These papercut maps by Julie Mirabelle of Famille Summerbelle are simply perfect for decorating one’s wall – whimsical, fun, and brilliant souvenirs of one’s travels across the globe. Moreover, I have fond memories of making papercut garlands and decorations with my mother when I was younger, and so these brilliantly combine happy memories with my love of travel.
The London version is at the top of my current list of things to collect – my only problem is deciding which colour to get! Also be sure to pay a visit to Julie’s gorgeous blog – one of my favourite Sunday-morning-with-a-cup-of-tea reads.
So tell me, what do you love collecting for the home or on your travels?
Love, Miss B xx
