Behind the desk, we hung this giant map we found at Hobby Lobby and a propeller we found on Antique farmhouse a while back. On either side of the map we hung square prints. One is a beautiful travel-themed one from Hobby Lobby on the other side it says “Your story matters, share it with the world”. It seemed fitting for a writer’s office.
On one of the shelves, we displayed our collection of nests. I think it’s an interesting touch among the touches of travel and bits of history we displayed here.
On this shelf, we placed an old chest and sprinkled polished rocks and shards of things we found in the yard. Fun fact that amazing metal piece at the back we found in our garden, and the piece of a bottle we found digging in our creek.
I love the top of this shelving unit so much, we have shells, old bullets we believe to be from the civil war (we dug them out of the garden), arrowheads old marbles (also found in our yard), petrified wood, sand from the mount of olives, reproduction WW2 Buttons, a giant moth, and an old aspirin bottle we found out in the yard. We also placed a lantern and a chest filled with all kinds of treasures (can you tell I have a problem with chests?).
This wall was so much fun to put together! Over the years we’ve collected each piece or made them. We have pieces or artwork, clay moon, and sun, a leather mask a country map our dear friends brought us on one of their visits.
To one side we placed this old suitcase we got at a yard sale over the summer, we also sat a globe on top of it.
This is a chunk of the Berlin wall, I thought it was the perfect place for it!
Brianna was amazing at Remembering World War II this year [Check out our trip HERE] and asked the Captain America re-anactor for an autograph. She’s awesome! Love you, sis.
That massive volcano is from an old school project, we built it with my grandmother many years ago and never had the heart to erupt. We want to turn it into a light but for now, it sits on top of the armoire. We placed a pile of books and a model plan on one side and suitcases with nature books and a camera on the other as if someone has just returned from an expedition somewhere.
