Favorite Post of the Week - February 5, 2010

I received a vintage globe as a gift this Christmas and I found this post supremely helpful when attempting to date it. To be clear, I did not try to take my globe out for dinner and a movie I was just trying to figure out how old it is.

Dating Vintage Globes

This graphic is from the blog
hindsvik where they also provide a pretty extensive timeline of what the names of the countries existed in a specific year. Head over and check it out and while you're at it you'll probably also want to visit the hindsvik vintage online shop. I want pretty much everything in the shop. Enjoy!

P.S. Please don't buy that blue floor lamp. I'm saving up for it. Thanks, love you, bye!

  1. Oh my gosh I giggled out loud at your "dating your globe" joke. Too funny.

    I have a growing globe collection so this could come in very handy!

  2. You are too cute! ( please don't buy the blue floor lamp!) I am happy to find another "grey addict" Thanks for popping by ML, it was lovely to have you and I am happy to be reminded of your wonderful blog!

  3. The picture in this post alone has inspired me to go out and buy a globe! :)
