Galaxy of Delight. #Handmade #Folksy

Thought we would bring a galaxy of stars onto the blog today. I haven`t had an entire collection of stars before, odd items, but not an entire display. So I think you`ll agree it`s high time we did. I hope you`ll enjoy todays lovely display and pop along to browse the shops too if you get a spare minute.
I was going to take pics of my blue mittens today and show them on here. I was also going to show you one or two of the christmas hats but I haven`t uploaded those pics yet. At least I managed to take those pics. Yesterday just ran away with me. I am getting on with the vivid pink mittens though, they are coming along nicely.
I took the older two grandchildren to the cinema to see Super 8. It wasn`t quite what I thought it was but I enjoyed it anyway. The children enjoyed it too. I think they have put up the price of the drinks and popcorn though, three small popcorns and drinks was almost £20.00!!! Can you believe that? And how mean to put them up in the school holidays! I told him it was very expensive and he said I was the third person to say so. Duh... shouldn`t that tell them something?
I`m geting excited about my trip to Switzerland to see my daughter now. I actually booked the tickets today and that makes it real all of a sudden. We are going by train as neither of us like flying and we`ll get to see the spectacular scenery too. Can`t wait!
As usual, to see a bigger picture or a description, just click on the item to view it in the shop.
ENJOY!!!

When the stars are out shining bright,
they do make a fabulous sight.
Gleaming against a velvet sky
looking so tiny up on high.
We like to see a shooting star
we wish, wondering if it will go far.
We like to see them twinkling away,
they`re there but not visible by day.
So many constellations making up the night
they form into pictures taking flight.
Orion the hunter, with his bow
his belt giving off a glow.
The plough and the seven sisters
wonderful sights and fabulous vistas.
They change position with the season
and the time of year, no other reason.
The astronomers they watch everywhere,
anything else and they don`t care.
Now astrologers, they map them too,
to see how they affect me and you.
So many uses, but I don`t care,
me I just like to stand and stare!
