Where’s the USSR?

Artist Wendy Gold is on to something. Vintage globes to be exact. She finds them and  decoupages them to create other worlds. Here is “Where the Wild Things Are.” It is a standard size globe and costs $399. If you order one it will be one of a kind. See other examples here.

I guess this is the front -- or the back.

Another old globe trick is a diy that I saw on Design *Sponge, the blog that is a wonderful catch-all for high bar projects and results. The instructions are so thorough, it will make you believe in you all over again.

You could also use as a message board.

Of course, you can forgo the entire crafty treatment and simply collect globes to sit around the house. I really liked this idea from apartment therapy where a globe was hung on the wall in the corner. Made me want to think of other unexpected places for global art.
