I've always had a soft spot for decorating with maps and globes. I guess it's because they're the kinds of items that serve dual purposes. Beauty and functionality -they're educational and interactive.

Wendy creates decoupage globes. It's such a great DIY idea, plus they're beautiful! I have been wanting a globe for months now, but these are even better.
For those of you who do not like to do things yourself, the classic globe still makes a great statement.

Hanging Astronomy Globes, from Preservation in Woodstock, CT. Wouldn't these look beautiful hanging in the corner of an office or library!
