I love this! Etsy vendor Recycling Tomorrow (clcort) gave a discarded lamp base a perfectly proportioned globe shade. This would be perfect for a library, school room or a children's room with a travel/map theme.
Table Traveler Keep the memory of a recent vacation alive long after you've returned home. Assemble a collection of vacation mementos to display inside a tray. Line the bottom of a tray with a souvenir map, layer a piece of glass or acrylic on top for protection, and include a small photo album to share your memories.
