a little worldliness for the re-nest house

i'll start off this post with a question: has anyone out there added a world map to your home decor for your kiddos? 

here's the reason i ask: about two years ago, little mr. re-nest #1 and #2's papa (my dad) started sending the boys postcards from his worldly travels. (he's a consultant and spends more time on an airplane than on land. bless his heart.) so, you can imagine that we've started gathering quite the collection of postcards...it's really amazing...they've gotten postcards from everywhere from milwaukee to korea. personally, i love this. i absolutely love that the boys have these little pieces of places they can only imagine at their little ages right now. 

but something we've talked about is having a world map for the boys to mark where they've received postcards from...you know, put little stickers on the map for each place (staying away from push pins...i don't need little toes and little hands finding sharp, pointy objects on the floor, by accident). so, adding this little project to the big, giant re-nest house updates list: find a world map that looks cool. add it to somewhere in our house. 

i started digging around tonight on pinterest to get some ideas and inspiration...and found some cool possibilities...

 whoa. i think i'm in love with this. more than what i have space for, but too beautiful not to share. image from designdipassione.com
and, a totally different way to show the world. image from scoutmob.com

what do y'all think? i think i'm leaning to starting with a large map and doing some kind of treatment with it on a large canvas...going to keep digging and getting inspired, but definitely need to get this project checked off the list! interested in seeing these and more? check out our pinterest boards for more inspiration and ideas!
