Tada! Yay for decorative stars for Our Marta’s room. She used these long ago to décor her bedroom shortly after we moved in. She hung them strategically on the wall over her headboard designing a constellation known as Ursa Marta. The large stars, Crystallo, Julius and March were hung with care at different heights with smaller stars, Minores, interspersed between them.
