Heavenly spheres

Some time ago, I went to Tiger - the shop where they sell all kinds of small things cheap. I normally loath such places (I'm not a fan of small decorations unless I make them myself), and now I went there only to spend some time. My thoughts were mostly "crap, crap, crap" until I saw one thing: a piggy bank shaped like a celestial globe. Well, there goes my determination not to buy anything. There are very few things that make me weak, but I must admit everything related to heavenly spheres and star charts do.

So of course I had to buy it. I'll save some money every now and then, don't know yet what to buy, though. Probably books. I gave in and ordered the book I've longed for a while now: Harmonia Macrocosmica. So, there is some inspiration coming to this way, soon. :)

  1. The book seems to be awesome! (Perhaps you could post few glimpses of it later?)
    I too dropped by to Tiger one day. I already had a (self made) celestial piggybank, so I bought a rubber ducky version of one instead. It's probably too tiny for coins to fit in, but ...that doesn't matter, it's still a rubber duck.
