Emily Henderson’s (HGTV Design Star) blog post on “Global Style” reminded me of my grandmother!

Mam-ma Tuggle taught elementary school then traveled to the far corners of the world with teacher’s groups on her summer vacations from 1964-1990.  MDT’s living room was a treasure box of images and objects from her travels…Europe, Philippines, Japan, South America, Alaska, Greece, Australia, Canada, Central America, Caribbean, Hawaii…

Thank you Emily Henderson for naming this style, which sometimes feels like Pier One but is not.
