pretty twine & vintage maps

I love the look of twine and raffia. I've been kind of obsessed with wrapping everything in them lately.

Pretty paper

Coasters {made these last night... more on that later}

Labels {this one for a soon to come Am. Girl}

Inspiration magazine tear-outs

And my curtains I shared last week.

How pretty is this twine?? I need to get some. It's called Bakers Twine. Sure to make anything and everything prettier!

On another note I also LOVE vintage maps. Anyone with me? There's something about them. For me it's probably my love of other countries with the vintage combination {which I obviously love}.

I found this vintage poster of Central London at Blick's for $4! {Definitely the way to buy maps- Paper Source also has a wide assortment for just as inexpensive}

I'm determined to have a map like this on my wall someday. 

As I was saying... I made these last night- it took about 20 minutes using my beloved Mod Podge, vintage map scrapbook paper, and some 4" tile from Lowes. {I have yet to spray them with some sealer but that should only take a moment}

Love them. I don't think my love for vintage maps or twine will slow down anytime soon!
