Another assignment as a writer on vintage

I've been writing articles for some months now as the Manchester (NH) Antiquing Examiner, and recently I've been doing "Antiquing This Weekend" features on various locations in New Hampshire like Portsmouth and PeterboroughAmherstKeene, and Milford, but a few weeks ago I was assigned a position as Vintage Home Decor writer for the national

My first article in that position was called "How vintage lovers decorated for the 4th, and what you can do next year" and the most recent was "Decorating with vintage maps and where to find them." Both of these articles have slide shows, and here's some pix I used in decorating with maps (for credits, see the article)--all great ideas:

Well, we don't have any more available wall space, even though I'd love to copy some of these ideas, but doing this piece made me wonder if we might have some vintage maps tucked away in a painted trunk where we keep stuff like that. And sure enough, I did!

Now I just have to find some time to do research so I can put them up for sale on my Etsy shop. But I've done a lot of Saturday yard saling recently and there are a bunch of things I have to put up first...

Never, never enough time in the day. Happily, the most recent piece I posted for sale yesterday (one of those great yard sale finds), a really sweet pair of vintage puzzles:

sold the same day!
