  7. I have the same problem... I am completely unable to resist a globe, especially if it's only a couple of dollars! I just picked up my 7th (or is it 8th?) globe this week at my local Goodwill for $1.99. I just love the scholarly, geographical feel, combined with the graphic punch of the seemingly infinite different color combinations! :)

  8. Hi Meg: I know Australia isn't New Zealand, but have you heard of "Weiss" art designs? Yesterday I bought a set of coasters with Weiss art designs in Richmond, Virginia, USA, and wondered if they are popular by you? Thx, Karen

    There's a photo of the coasters at the top of my blog post:

  9. The Weiss brand is a fairly iconic brand in Australia not N.Z ( Adele Weiss is a fashion designer and I think her branding was sold to a large company) They have a good website if you google the name

  10. I've been wanting a globe too and just found one for 15 dollars. I'm so excited about it. I may paint it, not sure yet.
