Etsy Item of the Day: Solar Eclipse Ornament

This morning I told you about my and Raymond’s adventure going to see the North American solar eclipse in August. If you too saw this otherworldly event, commemorate the occasion with this eclipse Christmas ornament. Made of pewter and shaped like the corona, this ornament includes the date of the eclipse and a wee charm of the USA that has the path of totality marked on it. See here for additional ornaments that feature state charms for all of the states in the eclipse’s path.

Raymond Around the World: North American Eclipse

Earlier this year there was a total solar eclipse across part of the United States. Raymond and I were both really intrigued by this celestial event, so we headed south to the path of totality. The eclipse was pretty magical! It was bizarre seeing everything briefly go dark in the middle of the day, and the 360° “sunset” was breathtaking. Raymond and I were too mesmerized during totality to take any photos, but we snapped a few leading up to the main event.

Etsy Item of the Day: Fa La La La Llama Ornament PDF Pattern

Llamas are one of my absolute favourite animals, so I squealed with delight when I saw this adorable llama ornament. With his snowy white fur and colourful accessories, this cutie would make a fun and interesting addition to your Christmas tree. Please note that this Etsy listing is for a PDF pattern only—not the actual ornament.
