As the sun sets, insects buzz lazily through the grasses and birds sing their twilight melodies. You light the fire, the air still warm, and watch the first stars glimmer in the summer night sky...
In celebration of warm summer evenings, this limited edition gift box is for the stargazer that loves to dream.
Complete with a beautiful astronomical chart to help you know what's happening in the night sky and plan your stargazing adventure, this summer night skies box is filled with star and moon cards and prints to remind you that we are all part of this incredible, messy, beautiful universe.
The summer night skies gift box is wrapped in delicate tissue paper, placed in a kraft paper presentation box and wrapped with a blue silk ribbon ready to be gifted to a loved one...or yourself.
There are just 5 of these boxes available.
'Once in a blue moon' offer for journal subscribers only
Between now and the Blue Moon on 22 August, if you buy a summer skies gift box you will also get an original starry portrait* painted just for you (or your loved one). The gift box will help you to plan your summer night sky adventure and the portrait will remind you that you, too, are made of stardust.
The Blue Moon is the third Full Moon in the astronomical season from the Summer Solstice to the Autumn Equinox and a relatively rare event, hence the expression "once in a blue moon". This 'once in a blue moon' offer is ONLY available to newsletter subscribers and would usually cost £60 on its own.
* The portrait will be painted on 15cm square watercolour paper. Once you have made your purchase, email me with a side on photo of your beautiful head and I'll post your gift box and start painting as soon as I'm back from my holiday on 9 August 2021.
