In Season: Constellations

wpa_heavens

I think most of the U.S. was hit with a dose of summer temps this past week. Between warm evenings, the smell of neighbors grilling dinner, and the full moon, there was plenty of energy pulling us outside, and once there we immediately turn our heads to the sky. Spying the big dipper and Orion’s belt are easy, but this summer we’re making an effort to learn a few more constellations. And so, inspired by the hopes and wonder that fill our star-gazing evenings, we’ve found a mix of home goods to remind you that staying up last night to find Cassiopeia was totally worth it.

I’m a big fan of having educational artwork hanging up in my home.  A moon phase print and this constellation poster are on my wish list.

Glow-in-the-Dark Constellations seems like a great book for beginners and families that would like to know a little bit more about the night sky.  This book along with a handmade constellation bedroll would be a great birthday present for a summer baby.

Grab an old scarf, thread a needle and try your hand at this DIY constellation scarf.

How awesome is this DIY constellation light?  Make one and let us know how it goes.

Or you could buy one of these swoon-worthy pendant lamps.

I’ve been toying around with the idea of making constellation pillows for awhile.  I didn’t even think of doing this.

I’m not sure I have ever described a quilt as epic, but I have now. Look at that detail!

This constellation wall detail is so subtle that I didn’t even notice it the first time I look at this bathroom makeover.

    • We’re glad you approve! It’ll be fun to do some serious star gazing at the beach, and maybe get inspired for a starry project or two!
