someone very lucky is going to get this home-made clay solar system in their stocking this christmas from a certain secret santa.... the planets are all made from clay and are suspended from driftwood by natural hemp. each planet is labelled and they're all in the right order. i only just heard of a way to remember the order of the planets, my boyfriend is disgusted at my poor primary school education. i had no idea! apparently the best way is this - "My Very Easy Method Just Set Up Nine Planets" although now it's a little inaccurate, so it would have to be "My Very Easy Method Just Set Up Neptune"... but you get the same result.
the colours may not be entirely accurate, but i think the turquoise scheme works well. earth has some pretty impressive detail, but i think my favourite has to be saturn. the ring around it is adorable...
hope everyone is enjoying the festive season, love and good will to all. merry christmas x
