My World

While sifting through a few boxes of buried treasures, I came across this vintage metal globe I purchased a few years ago. Sure, it had a bit of rust along it's bottom...but who really cares, right?

Apparently Pippa liked it as much as I did, prancing around the shiny blue ball - becoming all "fluffed" as if it were a prize she'd caught.

Funny thing is...I could relate.

Hope you enjoy the weekend in your world!

Taking junk to another level.


  1. Pippa! I love that name. And the globe is pretty amazing. You have a good weekend. And come see me! ~Mindy

  2. I used to have a globe exactly like that since I was a young girl. Just recently I was wondering if I sold it or stored it. Hopefully, it's in storage 'cause I really would like to keep it. Love the kitty!

  3. Oooooh, I love globes! And I love the colors on that one, good find (or "re-find" as the case may be!).

  4. Candy, have a great weekend in your little corner of the world! I love your kitty's name too - sweet! Hugs, Kathy (shoveling out in Ohio!)

  5. I love the globe! That is my new favorite item to collect!
