Fab Freebie: World Play

***This giveaway is no longer accepting entries – see who won below!***

And the lucky / randomly selected / soon to be quite worldly person is… Briana (who says “London, Ontario is special to me. That’s where I first lived on my own, went to University, met my husband, and I just loved that city. Plus, it has the best spaghetti restaurant ever, Spageddy Eddy’s!”). Congrats! And for everyone else, scroll down to the contest entry details for a sweet little discount the Wallpapered folks added for everyone.

One look at Pinterest and I don’t feel quite so alone in my fascination with maps. So to everyone else out there who digs a little cartography in their design, hold on to your seats. This week the people behind Wallpapered are giving one of you a nice big 8ft x 5ft world map wallpaper kit so that you can add a map-tastic mural to your home. As much as I love the various world map styles they offer, the coolest feature (at least to me) is that you can also get custom area map wallpaper that basically zooms into a postal code of your choosing. So you could order custom wallpaper showcasing your favorite big city – or even the small town that you grew up in.

  • PRIZE: Any world map or custom area map wallpaper up to 8ft x 5ft from Wallpapered (a $400+ value!)
  • TO ENTER: Comment on this post with the words “WORLD ME!” and tell us…
  • BONUS QUESTION: …what town / city / state / country / other geographic area is most special to you? Will you always have a fondness for the town you grew up in? Are you most enamored with the place where you honeymooned? Or are you just bursting with pride over the area where you currently live?
  • GIVEAWAY CLOSES: Wednesday, January 23rd at 8pm EST or at 10,000 entries (whichever comes first)
  • PRIZE SHIPS: Wahoo, this giveaway is available worldwide!

    World ME!!

    Well, San Diego is my favorite place. I’ve only visited there twice in the past two years for work related meetings though. I was born there and hadn’t been back. When I first stepped off the plane the first time, I felt like I was home. As far as the map, I’d go with a world map, but I’d chose it for my man. Our basement will eventually be his “man-cave” and he loves maps and tapestries that look old and vintage.

    I would probably select my hometown (Fairfax County) but my current home (Des Moines) also sounds like a good idea too.

    Louisville, KY is special to my husband and I. We have lived there for 5 years now and are just already so deeply rooted. A wonderful city filled with awesome people, food and architecture.

    World Me!
    I love Lake Cumberland KY. My parents have had a house boat there since I was 9 and we spent most summer weekends, and some winter ones, there. Now my kids love it there!

  5. Rachel says

    WORLD ME!! I lived in Versailles, France during my junior year of college. I love everything about it…the food, the wine, the architecture, the French people, the history, and the way of life there. My time there had a huge influence on me, and I will forever think of Versailles and Paris as my second home.

    “WORLD ME” Durham, NC

    My husband and I would move there in a heartbeat if all of our family wasn’t where we live currently

    World Me!

    I’ll always have a special place for Pullman Washington. That’s where I went to college, WSU. A big school in a small town in the middle of nowhere. It was the best 4 years ever!

      My parents grew up in Pullman and my grandma still lives there. Wazzu is where I met my husband.
      Go Cougs!
