First, when my grandmother passed away early last year my mom went through a bunch of her old things and gave me old letters and report cards she had saved. There were a lot of really cool things but the most amazing was this program book from the 1939 Worlds Fair. In the front of the book is a map of the fair that is just amazing. I ended up scanning the map and printing it instead of framing the original (which I really wanted to do but seemed like not a great idea). Anyway I am in love with it.
Second is this map wrapping paper that I bought ages ago at Kate's Paperie. It was $4.50 and felt like something that needed to be put on display. Originally I was going to mount it on cork and make a cork board out of it (which I may still do) but i think I may love it too much to do that to it.
The final piece I am really excited is this old letter-- also from my grandmothers. I have a firm belief that if you are to keep stuff you should do something with it. This letter is amazing and from the late 1800s (written to my great grandmother) I want to take it to a framer and get it protected and then framed and put up in the living room.
