Be Still My Beating Heart


I love maps, which those of you who've been reading for a while will probably remember from Map Week. As I was looking for items for a theme week I was planning (I did those once, right? Yes, I know it has been a while...) I stumbled across Etsy shop BananaStrudel.


BananaStrudel has a large collection of original antique maps as well as other other amazing antique prints, including architectural plans and details, illustrations of animals and insects, and diagrams of many other things that made me giddy with excitement.


As I looked through the extensive collection of affordable maps and prints, I found one piece after another that I wanted for me, for E, and for many of the people I know and love.


If antique maps and prints are up your alley, BananaStrudel is a shop that's certainly worth a look.

Great finds, Courtney. I, too, love antique maps.

Have you decided on one to purchase for yourself?

Not only do I love each and every one of these, but the NAME of the shop is fabulous! that alone makes me want to shop there!

I'm an antique print junkie--having a little piece of history like that thrills me so much!
