Mixing Old & New

For as long as I can remember my parents have always hung maps in our home. My mum & dad were never into displaying family photos up the stairway and even though I sometimes wished they did (I even gifted them a picture of me to hang going up the stairs...ha ha, can you say vain?!) now whenever I see maps hung up in people's houses it makes me feel very nostalgic.

So when I saw these Mapiful posters I felt like this would be the perfect addition to my own home and would be a great way to honour my parents' tradition but in a slightly more modern way. Basically how it works is you insert a place name or location that is special to you into the website, and it creates a poster using the coordinates of that meaningful place. You can then customise the map by zooming in/out, changing the text and choosing the visual theme of your poster.

For our home I chose Sorrento, Italy (the place where Jonathan & I got married) and Cork, Ireland (where we met). I absolutely love how they turned out and have hung them near our stairway just like my parents did in the house where I grew up!
