Happy Friday evening everyone!
I remember the days when I would be planning a big Friday night out. Not any more! My idea of a perfect night these days is tucking Zoe up in (her own) bed then snuggling up on the sofa with Martin to watch a film. Perfect!
Talking about Martin, it's his birthday soon, and I am struggling a bit for ideas. Now, Martin is a bit of a map addict, he has quite the collection of Ordnance Survey maps, we even have a 'map wall' in the house where (mostly) old maps are framed and displayed. I was having a bit of a map-related browse on Etsy this week and I found so many items that loved, so I thought I would share them with you! Aren't you lucky?!
I love this Game of Thrones chest from Urd Handicrafts, it comes with these little vials (including wildfire!!) and is covered in the map of Westeros. Awesome!
OK, this one is for me! I'm not sure how good Martin would look in this summer dress from Cruel Candy. I would look fabulous of course!!
Martin has a couple of maps in a similar style to this; Tubular Fells and Munroverground (you can get these here- ooh they have a wales one now too...!!). I think this world map in the style of a train system would look awesome next to them. You can get one from Art Pause.
Haha another one for me (and any #PostCircle people or snail mailers)! I love these envelopes made from old atlases (atli??) from The Pulparazzi, you could even match the envelope to the country you are sending the letter to!!
How completely wonderful is this repurposed suitcase-turned-into-a-seat?! I have no idea where I would put it but I'm sure I would find somewhere! It's made by Bon Voyage World Travel.
OK this is not strictly maps but this set of porcelain tableware from Kina Ceramic Design is inspired by the topography lines on is maps. How unique!
