At the moment I like…stars

Not celestial stars, not celebrity stars but pretend stars…

It doesn’t make much sense so I have found three nice images to demonstrate what I mean.

1. The ceiling of Hampton Court Palace Chapel

I first visited the interior of Hampton Court Palace when I was seven, and the magic of the chapel has stayed with me ever since. The atmosphere is really special and I think that a big contributor to this is the amazing ceiling. Decorated in royal blue with hundreds of tiny golden stars, it really feels like you are staring up into the heavens.

2. ┬áVan Gogh’s Starry Night

This is a beautiful, swirling image that draws you deep into the night sky. Another magical feeling.

3. Polly Pocket Fairy Fantasy

This is the weirdest one of the bunch. I was given this light-up Polly Pocket when I was about four, and it was one of the best toys that I have ever owned. I remember playing with it at night at my Gran’s house and it really drew me into the little fairy world. It’s not really stars at such, but the light-up function in a pitch-black room when you’re young is quite special.

So after all that, in a couple of days time I probably won’t give a monkeys about these things.

P.s. whilst finding Polly Pocket pictures I came across this blog and found the toy article really funny.
