It's nearly holiday season, which means I've got multiple lists going with gift and decor ideas. I have more than a couple astronomy- and star-themed ideas that I am contemplating -- in particular a quirky print from 20x200, a vintage star map from Etsy, and a fabulous constellation projector. Around this time of year, I've always loved seeing bright paper lanterns in the shapes of stars lighting up entryways around town, too.
Mysterious, educational, fun -- these night-sky-themed items will add a little whimsy to your decor year-round, and also make for lovely gifts for any age. Enjoy!
