copy cat

when i saw meg’s kitchen (scroll down the page a bit), i knew i had to copy.
actually, i’d love to copy the entire house.
but our kitchens are fairly similar and i loved her idea of adding globes above the cabinets.
it was such a big area and i didn’t want to fill it with little knickknacks or fake ivy.
so i told my mom my idea and she began her hunt for vintage globes.
she scored!  
i love them!
i wasn’t sure originally about the navy blue one, but it turns out to be my favorite.
i just propped them up on some of my vintage suitcases.
i love how the colors of the globes look with the suitcases.
next on my to do list:
paint the airvent behind the globes with wallcolor!

    I don't like fake ivy either. They say imitation is the most sincere form of flattery. Meg probably started crying when she read your post.

    They do look great! And the navy one is awesome! I love all the old charm of your home! Very pretty! You don't see some of those touches in today's built homes. Do you mind if I ask if you do have an older home?

    Love it! The globes and suitcases look so great! And, how awesome that your mom found the globes for you. Is she into thrifting?

    I love this idea! I have had an old globe like that sitting around my house and I haven't thought of anything fun to do with it yet. I may be trying this tomorrow. Thanks!

    Very pretty – I'm fascinated with globes and maps, but I've never thought of using them this way!
    Now – how about talking about those little green dishes on your countertop?!

    That is so great! I love her globes too, but haven't found any yet to copy with!

    ok so i LOVE this! we are expecting our 3rd little one – 2 girls in the mix so far (natalie 3.5 and kate just turned 2) we find out in 2 weeks if this is a boyr or girl.. anyhow all that to say my inspiration for a boys room is a HUGE wall map – like wall paper style and vintage suitcases! a traveling theme esp if boy but might need to go for if it's my third girl.. ! so inspired by you! erin (sue donaldson;s friend )
