old globes in the guest room....

Both of our guest rooms are on the lower floor where we can walk out to the golf course and our garden......they share a full bathroom.....I love this room...it is sunny and bright with lots of flowers right outside the window...this is where a few of my old globes reside... 3 more are opposite the bed on an old white cupboard as well a few more in the family room.

To determine how old your globe is you just need to see when they changed the name of a particular country......eg.....if your globe says Ceylon.....Ceylon changed its name to Sri Lanka in 1972....your globe was produced before 1972....check out some other countries on your globe...especially Africa..this makes for a good history lesson.......thanks to my Cindy for a couple of these treasures!

Great additions to any room ... the world is always changing ... and to think I tossed out a few of them years ago ... silly me ... !!!

They really add something to a room, don't they? I've been looking for more for my son's room.
Your guest room is lovely with that huge window and those soothing colors. I LOVE the little desk next to the bed.

Oh wow Dagmar, this room looks so pretty... and what about the view!! Really amazing.

And yes, we hope to catch a flight to Canada in just a few weeks from now. So exciting! We can hardly wait, but the visa have to be ready first.

Happy weekend,
love Maaike
