Decorating + Maps (Part 1)

My husband and his equally well-traveled buddy recently came across a stash of vintage National Geographic maps. You would think they discovered some serious pirate booty by the way they carried on. Somehow the old glue residue mixed with the sweet anticipation of unfolding a dusty map reverted them to hyper-excited, tween-like behavior. They even started swapping maps toward the end of the evening: “I’ll trade you my 1952 Southeast Asia for your 1969 India!”

Too cute. And now I’ve acquired a hefty collection of old maps. What’s an organized wife to do??
