Seeing Stars: Inspiration from the Night Sky

Seeing Stars: Inspiration from the Night Sky

Since childhood, one of my favorite simple pleasures has been to lie on the grass in summer and look at the stars. While by now we've missed the peak of the annual Perseid meteor showers, there's no reason you can't still enjoy the skyward view or bring a little of it indoors.

For me, stargazing conjures up very happy memories. If you like it too, here are some dark and starry accessories for your home.
