I have been wanting to make a piece of garden art out of a window for a loooong time. I got it in my head that I should use a map and have been looking for a vertical map to fit the space in the garden. Not so easy to find! Every map that I have come across lately is horizontal. I thought a map of California would be perfect, but not so much, as it was horizontal too. Huh?
This weekend, at my sisters yard sale, at last I found a map that was vertical! Yay! It was a map of the San Francisco Bay area. I love San Francisco, and have been there many times, but don’t live anywhere near there. Then I remembered my current favorite album, Save Me San Francisco by Train, which was coincidentally playing as I contemplated my project. Perfect!

Anyways, I took my map and window:
