    Metal globes, most vintage--yo-yos, beads, pencil sharpeners, pendants, earrings--fill this interesting little glass bowl.

      I so want this jar! Wouldn't those look cute in my gumball machines?

      Treewhimsy: I checked out your awesome Quilt Studio pix. Yes, these would look yummy in a red gumball machine!

      Thank you, Calsidyrose! It's so much fun to see all the stuff out there that would pop the walls of my house if I tried to stuff it all in. :-)

      These are great, I collect vintage tin globe banks, haven't seen any tiny globes like this before.

      Okay, okay...so the other day I'm at an antique shop and see this little globe bank and...well, I bought it. All because I like this picture.

      I'm just hopeless. It looks cute in my sewing room.

      Thanks for all the nice comments. I have an incurable weakness for globes and maps of all sorts. I was an Oil Brat as a kid, so that might explain it. My husband thinks I have an addiction.

      I have about 10 vintage globes, and some unusual maps, including a set of four plastic maps molded to show the terrain of the Mojave Desert. I had these mounted on foam board and plan one day to hang them in a big rectantagle. The maps are 4x3 feet each.
