My very first collection!


So I am not a collector of things. I'm not a fan of a lot of clutter in design but lately I have been drooling over all of the cool collections and displays of globes. Love them! The colors can be so vibrant and they bring so much interest to a room. A few weeks ago I made a trip to Austin and we went to a great little shop on South Congress called Uncommon Objects. I highly recommend it if you plan on taking a little vacay to the Austin area. Actually, I highly recommend S. Congress Ave all together. They have some amazing little shops and the street is packed with super cool hipsters and the vibe was awesome.
But, I digress.
I picked up my first globe for a cool $24 and I was so pumped. Since then my sister picked me up three more globes from an antique store in Dallas. Thanks sis!!

A home for my globes
I need a few smaller globes to fill in the empty spaces to achieve the look I want.
Here are some of my inspiration photos for my little globe obsession:




Have a great weekend!!!!
