An Over-the-Moon Birthday

Our daughter, Ayla, is crazy about the moon (does that make her a lunatic?); she talks about it all the time, and can spot it anywhere in the sky, day or night. Also (unbeknownst to us when we chose it), her name means ‘moon halo’ in Turkish. So when it came time for her second birthday party, we knew just the theme:

Perforated Moonstruck Light

 

 

If I had a Moonstruck light in my possession, I would cradle it in my arms and whisper sweet nothings in its perforations.

Moonstruck is designed by feinedinge, which means “fine things” in German. Continue Reading

Glow in the Dark Moon Table.

Houston, we have storage!

“This design by Sotirios Papadopoulos for ENNEZERO is one heavenly

I assume that means it glows in the dark or maybe it shoots laser
beams. The “Fullmoon” will be on-view at the SOHO temporary gallery in
Milan during the “dEMOsign” exhibition April 18-20, 2008.”

DIYable? Dunno, where can I get some of that paint

Lunar Eclipse Photos: August 28, 2007

Here's your ancient Greek lesson for the day: the word eclipse comes from the preposition ek (out) + leipw (to leave). Leipw also finds itself in such words as lend/loan and relinquish.

Yesterday's lunar eclipse wasn't perfect (at least as viewed from the MidWest), but awesome enough. Here's a few photos and videos that captured the phenomenon. If these don't inspire you…you gots problems.
