Welcome To The 36th Masterpiece Monday!



I'm the map, I'm the map, I'm the map.......

 I'm still enjoying those nautical maps I found for free on Freecycle.

So far, I've only used them in my new craft room, but I thought "Old Rusty" might look nice with one as well.

Have you ever tried to measure and cut a huge rolled up map? It's comical to say the least, because the map doesn't want to lay flat for you.


 And because of the center double panes, I had to cut the map in two pieces, yet make it still look like one. The easy part was attaching the map with clear tape.

I really like the way it turned out and it was free! :O)

I'm looking forward to seeing your new Masterpieces this week!
Have fun,

well, I just love that look but I can't tell what "Old Rusty" is. I have got to find out if we have a "freecyle" in my area. Looks like you got quite a "find". Very good-looking!

For those of you who are new to my blog, "Old Rusty" is my retired metal fireplace. I like to decorate him even though we don't use him. Mary :O)

Hi Mary,
The verse under your header is just what I needed to read this afternoon. Thank you for the reminder! I'm your newest follower and I just linked up for the first time to your party. I love your maps! So clever. Thanks for hosting.
