Through June, my map jewelry will be a part of an exhibition at Composition, a beautiful shop in Colorado.
The theme of the show, PLACE, makes my heart swell... and the photos on Flickr are nearly convincing me to hop on the nearest plane, train or automobile to go see the show in person.
The vintage school maps they have on display are dreamy... I can picture these hanging around my house. I remember loving these layered pull-down maps in school... I always wanted to roll them up and down and use the teacher's pointer stick to point out all the places I'd love to travel.

New in the shop, inspired by the great trend-setting runways of the world, and my new found obsession with Project Runway. If only there was a Project Jewelers Bench...
Here it is... the Antique Map Bracelet featuring the fashion capitals of the world.

A female Peregrine Falcon is nesting in the nest box monitored by the Ohio Department of Natural Resources. They have a live webcam streaming 24 hours a day from the 41st floor of the Rhodes State Office Tower downtown Columbus where the nest box is located. You can watch it here. Pretty soon there will be baby falcons fledging and learning to be the fastest animal alive!

I was excited to find recently that Eva at Sycamore Street Press compiled a Columbus City Guide for Design*Sponge. It made me happy to see a list of many of my favorite places around the city. If you've never been to Columbus, you should plan a road trip and use this list as a guide. You will be sure to enjoy yourself!
