I've Jumped on the Globe Bandwagon...

 I've admired globe collections on others' blogs for some time now, but was hesitant to start my own.  I'm always kind of resistant to doing things that are too "popular" or "trendy".  But I just can't deny the fact that globes are really pretty, and look so nice and vintage-y when grouped together in a collection!
So I've given in to temptation and decided to go with it!  I'm such a follower- ha ha!  We're in the middle of re-doing our family room, and I think the globes will work nicely with the new decor.  I've found four nice ones so far.    As you can see, we have a ledge at the top of one wall where they fit perfectly.
 This one is my newest find.  I love the darker aqua color, and the fact that it sits on a wooden base.
 This one is probably my favorite- nice and aged, and really pretty colors!
 The other two are a bit newer, but they add a nice variety to the colors.
 It's actually a little difficult to display them because they're all so similar in size, so I've raised the back one with a block of wood.
I'd like a couple more in varying sizes to round out the collection, but I'm happy with how it looks so far!
And thank you for your excitement about the announcement from my last post!  As I said, I'm not sure how quickly things will happen (I'm having some printing problems with the smaller sizes, unfortunately), but I'm crossing my fingers things will turn out smoothly.  Marcia asked whether I've made any new paintings, and the answer is yes.  Both of them will be part of the first run of prints, so I'm excited to show them to you all once everything's ready!   I'll keep you all updated!

So excited to hear about your prints! I bet you'll do great with them!
Just an FYI (and I don't mean to promote myself lol ) But on Monday I'll have a vintage Ohio Art Tin Child's Globe for sale on my blog.
My post will be up at 6:00pm central time.
Just thought I'd mention it. :)
I'm soooo tempted to collect them too!
