School Maps!!!

I love Freecycle. Through it, I got an email from a woman who has about 50 old school maps...and I immediately sent her one back saying I want like five.

She said she would hang on to a few of them until I get back into town! I am so excited. I want to do things like THIS in my house:

In other news, I am going to pick up two vintage typewriters via Craigslist, along with a couple of file cabinets that I want to wallpaper with pretties and I'm still on the look-out for a sweet standing coat-rack. My mom recently told me that I am going to have the "most eclectic, weirdest, quirkiest house". She has NO idea ;)
