Let’s Talk Maps


How much do you love these gorgeous map dresses by Annex? I think I have been watching too much House Hunters International because I am craving travel. When I think of picking up and moving my life to another country, that is the only time I sigh disappointingly about owning a house. I lived in England for a year while I was in college, but now that I am married – I think about how romantic it would be for us to live somewhere overseas for the heck of it.

Since that isn’t possible for me (right now), I have found myself compensating in other ways…particularly with maps. There is just something so inspiring about them. They are a reminder of what you have done, and a promise of what you will do.


Love these My Roots Lie Here maps.


Keep it simple by hanging up your dream location with their famous landmarks as the focus.


Though I am sure most of you have seen these gorgeous maps here and here, I just couldn’t resist including them.

    Such fabulous inspiration from your post today! I love all of these maps… I’m buzzing with ideas on how I could make my own map of places I’ve been to hang in my home. Thanks!

    I am SO craving travel. I’ve been dreaming about Greece lately. I would loooove to live half the year in Portland and during the rainy winter, live somewhere else very different but equally magical.

    Oh, these are gorgeous. I will definitely be getting one of the My Roots Lie Here maps for our little family. Thanks Tiffany – you have such a great eye for special things!
