  1. So, does the sister get to be a giveaway contestant or is it not open to family members? Just gotta ask...

  2. Ooh I love maps. I'd put them in a bowl on the mail/junk table, to help reduce the space for junk accumulation.

  3. How neat! My husband loves maps and it would great to surprise him with these for Christmas! I'd put them in a bowl in our entranceway.

  4. Love the map balls. I moved into a new apartment recently,and it is pretty lacking in decor. These would be perfect anywhere, but I'd probably display them in the living room.

  6. Im not sure how I would incorporate those into my house decor, Im in the middle of moving in and getting a shabby chic decor going =) But I am sure I would find the perfect spot for them!
