Double Takes: Jorma’s Pinned Map: Sit and Read

I was completely in awe when I saw this vintage National Geographic Magazine map. The folks over at Sit and Read picked up this gem at an estate sale. The map belonged to Jorma Hyypia and chronicled his travels around the United States between 1947-1968 with color-coded pins. The man’s travels are surely inspirational.

Double Takes: Globe Snowmen: Emily Henderson


So many great map inspired items in Emily Henderson’s HGTV holiday special. HGTV isn’t aired here in Korea, but I stumbled on Henderson’s blog post detailing the program. She gives a brief tutorial for these fabulous globe snowmen. We still don’t have snow here in Seoul, but these little guys make me sort of ok with that.
