What a better way to celebrate Earth Day than to debut this oceanic tribute to our beautiful blue home.
Unlike some of my other map chairs, where a cut vintage maps into pieces and affix them to a chair, this time I couldn't bear to cut this one. I love the way you can still see the creases in this National Geographic map from 1967.
I had one in my stash, but it wasn't enough to cover the front & back. So I went to my go to source for all cool old stuff...Etsy and wouldn't you know it...I found another one from this lovely shop.
It is fascinating to see all those mountains, caverns and formations that mysteriously lie beneath our oceans.
The cool blues and jagged topography is so striking together, I just love it.
I have been talking to Tammy over at Hatch about this idea for weeks, so I am very excited to send it her way. If you have not been, it is such an eclectic gallery that has been a great venue for my quirky, recycled art.
Enjoy this Earth day and find ways to make your little part of the planet a little greener, not just today, but everyday.
