I've always had a thing for old globes. My parents have a great old globe on the side table in the living room. As a kid I usually had a world map (or moon map!) hanging in my room.

I'm loving this collection of old globes. The blues are so pretty. Everytime I see a globe at an antique or thrift store I point it out to Boyfriend... especially the tin piggybank ones!

Kind of makes me want to start collecting them.

Do you collect anything? China, books, puzzles, quilts? I'm curious what ya'll collect and where to keep it. On display? In storage? In hiding?

Please discuss.
