Star projector

Picture this: Your crush invites you over for dinner, and, when you arrive, you're greeted with a glass of wine, Sigur Ros on the iPod, and this star projector. How amazing would that be?

I'd love it for quiet married nights at home, too. Would be a fun way to eat burritos and watch Curb your Enthusiasm, haha.

This Star Projector reminds me of one of my favorite movies! If you haven't seen the movie Adam yet, you should check it out! It's wonderful and he has a star projector in his living room!

Diana Mieczan said...

OMG that would be lovely..and Curb your Enthusiasm is hilarious. Balazs and I can't stop laughing at larry david:) xo

Joanna Goddard said...

no way, kelcie, i haven't sen it but am going to check it out now :)

I've always wanted to make love under the stars but doing it outside in the dark freaks me out (bugs) so this would be a good alternative. I love love LOVE the price. Thanks Joanna.

Love this! Wonder if we'll see it in a romantic comedy soon...:)

Mal said...

This is so beautiful!

And it reminds me of the ep of Friends when Ross and Rachel had their first date and ended up at the planetarium because Ross was called into work

Joanna Goddard said...

the other amazing thing about this is that it will show you the REAL constellations!

"align it according to your location and the time of the year, so it can project a map of the clear night’s sky all around you."

Christy said...

Awesome! Would go well with the galaxy nails:)

Sadie + Stella said...

Agreed! Hilarious! I totally relate to the latter. More like taco bell and Curb! Bahahaha.

Wendy said...

It would be very amazing, indeed. I want one!!!

mandyface said...

I got this on Ebay a couple years ago for next to nothing and my hubby and I love it! It really is very romantic- and I think about that FRIENDS episode too! We've fallen asleep with it on a few times though and have had to replace the bulb lol but its worth it.

dreamday said...

i want this! beautiful!!!

rose said...

gosh..this one's making me go gaga

Paula said...

I used to have one of these as a nightlight! Fun fun!

Trish said...

Sweet! Yeah, my son has the Twilight Turtle and I'm always thinking we should borrow it one evening - blue stars on the ceiling, mugs of hot chocolate, warm blankets, perfect!

S said...

Omg! I definitely want it!
It's spectacular, super cool!!!

That would be an amazing date!

Rachel said...

I've been wanting a star projector for such a long time. It wasn't until yesterday when I was browsing Pinterest that I found a store that sells them: http://www.infmetry.com/diy-romantic-star-projector

It sets such a romantic tone in your home. I would absolutely melt if a guy did this for me :)

Sarah said...

Haha burritos, that's funny. I'd love one of these. I've been trying to find a good one that would go in my baby's nursery. But they are all either lame, or too expensive for a nursery.

I can't believe how reasonably priced that is! Good find, thank you for sharing.

Eliza Jane said...

Omg, that is amazing! In December I'm traveling to Jordan, and I'm going camping with the bedouines. I'll get to see the sky, in the middle of the desert, with zero light polution. I've never been so excited for something in my life!

I have one of these, and I tell you, no one enjoys it more than insane cat. It kind of puts him in a trance.

Lauren Kent said...

Om my gosh, I am in love :D

Elisa Shere said...

I bet Toby would love it!!! Think how magical it would be for a little mind. I think I might need one of these :)

Alexa said...

Oh my goodness...magical. And love that you mentioned Curb Your Enthusiasm, because clearly I wouldn't be dating/married/interested in the guy if he didn't have an affinity for Larry David. You think I'm joking. ;)

Eleni said...

Like your beloved one can present you with the stars!! Amazing! (I'd definitely feel weak on my knees..)

Dancing Branflake said...

Well, my crush did invite me over to watch the stars (he was an astronomy physics major). When we later married he then put up glow in the dark stars on our ceiling to map out all our favorite constellations. We'd have a look at the stars every night.

allyson mae said...

this is so AWESOME. putting it on my wishlist. thank you for sharing! and yes, that would be an incredible date night!

Michelle said...

I am buying that right now for my husband for Christmas! He's always disappointed with the stars around Chicago. Too much light pollution. He will love this! I'm so glad you posted this.

Melissa Blake said...

LOL @ the cat comment...i can see my cats going crazy over this. :)

Joanna Goddard said...

yeah, and it's only $22!!! :) (anonymous, so funny about your cat)

Joanna Goddard said...

and dancingbranflake, that is adorable.

nikki said...

we have this one on a timer in our bedroom, so we fall asleep every night to green stars and a softly glowing milky way (which is adjustible!). We buy a new one every couple years, it's the perfect nightlight.

Bryna Faye Shields said...

Oh goodness I want one!! Or 100. They would also be really cool for taking photographs of your friends.

Hannah said...

that's so magical :) and such a reasonable price!

Anita said...

Wow, I love this!!

meredith lockhart said...

Wow, so beautiful! That reminds me of the disco light I had as a kid. I would turn off all my lights, turn on my disco light, and just sit and watch the circle colors of light revolve around my room!

Oh, this is lovely! My husband bought us a home planetarium for our bedroom. I love looking at the stars every night as I fall asleep.

Bethany Suckrow said...

Jo, you have the best date ideas! Totally doing this. :)

Janna said...

I just bought this...although I found one on Amazon for about $6..I was going to buy from the website you have linked but it ships from HongKong and I'm not sure how I feel about that haha, so I went with the safety assurance of Amazon...just a heads up if anyong else is planning on ordering this!

joanne said...

maybe a dumb question, but why does it say DIY? you don't have to make it do you...?

Ana said...

The projector is awesome. Burritos and Curb Your Enthusiasm too! x

This is rocking my world right now!

Meg said...

i think you have perfectly captured the difference between dating life and married life! although we still do put sigur ros (or thievery corporation, more likely) on the ipod and drink wine. sometimes. but then it's usually followed with curb, or bored to death, or something equally as comfortable. and you know what? i like that just fine. :)

sara said...

oh my gossshhh i love this! i'm putting it on my wishlist..

Eliana said...

found the same one on amazon with free shipping for $14. hello, impulse buy!

Anonymous said...

Love it and love Sigurrós.

SARAH said...

Linda Lu said...

I guess that is a very romantic scenario, but the first thing I thought of was how awesome it would be to have something like this for my dorm room. Ah well...college.

Francesca Felix said...

How much fun would it be to connect the dots of constellations?!

Cheers!

Little Squirrels said...

You really need to see the movie Adam! That is the only reason what I want to buy this AMAZING star projecter. I am absolutely in love with it! Plus it is so affordable.

I bought one for my husband for our 6 month anniversary. Its amazing! A little sketchy to put together, the directions don't match the actual pieces included, but it works and looks fantastic. Also, the company seems a little uncertain about the shipping, so be patient even if you order the fast shipping.

Love this idea!

Thanks for the ideas. There's always something new to learn and improve on in this mad internet world. Uptiming is surely something to keep an eye on.

Kaloy said...

This is such a help to me. And i find the information very reliable. Thanks.

Sarah said...

Joanna, when you posted this blog post, I bought that star projector the very same day. I gave it to my boyfriend for Christmas 2011 because he loves stars and building things. This item combines both! We ended up putting it together on Valentine's Day earlier this year. It does take some care and consideration to follow the instructions correctly, but the projector really does work. So cool! :)
