glad you got things working for you. like mentioned in my tutorial, I was ‘still trimming it here and there’ for the sizes to fit in the orb. so what I would do was trim the base of the spikes until it was the right length. b/c as you can see in the photo, the spike template is longer than I ended up using. but if you got your printer to adjust that in the 1st place that’s even better! :D

The entrance hallway in this wonderful period home in the UK is a preview of the extraordinary decor inside. A mirrored wall was installed to make the path on the side of the stairs look larger.
Tumblr media
In the sitting room a well-worn leather Chesterfield sofa is unusually placed in front of a cabinet. The coffee table is a rusty industrial salvaged piece. 
Tumblr media
The kitchen is a long architectural salvage counter with the patina of years of use. Behind it is a similar cabinet to the one in the living room and is there in place of standard kitchen cabinetry.
Tumblr media
Incredibly beautiful. Notice the vintage industrial lights overhead.
Tumblr media
An antique gym horse makes an interesting bench.
Tumblr media
Collected pieces, as well as a tray of drinking glasses are displayed on an ornate metal table painted red. The table stands out amongst the neutral surroundings.
Tumblr media
Great desk. Love how they combine antiques and industrial decor.

This room is especially beautiful. The owner collects butterflies and they’re very attractive displayed under glass domes. 
Tumblr media
More butterflies are displayed in frames illuminated by candles and a Moravian star lamp.
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
Magnificent pieces plus a fireplace in the bath. My mother was an antique dealer and they have some primo stuff in this house.
Tumblr media
The worn patina on this mirror is amazing. Most people would have it resilvered.
Tumblr media
Here, in a more masculine bath, another gym horse is used as a table.
Tumblr media
Large bedroom with another brick fireplace, antique bed, worn leather chair and vintage industrial storage.

This bedroom has it’s own tin tub by the fire.

Snapemas day 3: smiles
‘Mum, what are they saying? I don’t understand’, Severus asked, a bit louder than usual, for they were surrounded by a noisy crowd.  
‘They are speaking German, dear’ Minerva answered, tightening the scarf around the child’s neck. ‘It is lovely isn’t it?’
The child was wearing a very thick green coat, a dark beret, and mittens Albus had knitted for him. He seemed to have started to regain strength – apparing was never easy for him, and she had held his tiny hand until she was sure he could stand on his own. But the boy was aware of this, and had still begged her to take him here, perhaps because she had been talking about Germany a lot. She may be Minerva McGonagall, strictest teacher at Hogwarts, but with her son, she had a hard time saying no… he was, after all, never asking for anything.
‘Can you teach me German?’ Severus asked, trying to read the signs above each shop, and failing.
Why were some words so long?
‘I am afraid I cannot’, Minerva replied, ‘but Albus could, he must remember it a little. He spent some time here when he was young, you know.’
‘But what if I want to say hello, just now?’
‘Say “hallo”.’
‘No, try and say it with a Gaelic accent instead, but pronounce the “h”’.
‘Very good! Now come, we have to see everything.’
The Aachen Weihnachtsmarkt was a superb place - but to a child, it was a kind of bright, yellow and red heaven, full of wonderful smells. There was traditional German food, shops full of chocolate sculptures, saint Nicholas and shepherds, small snails and ribbons; there were sugar waffles, chocolate waffles which he got to try; hot chocolates with too much whipped cream, currywurst, and things he could not name. Each stand was red and decorated with bright fairy lights while Christmas carols, which neither of them could understand, were sung in the background. Above them, the tall, dark cathedral stood proud, illuminated by the city. Minerva absolutely wanted to bring back a nutcracker for their living room, but there were hundreds of them – thousands, according to Severus – and they could not agree on one. The boy preferred the regular one, dressed in a red uniform, holding a sword and wearing a tall, black ushanka; Minerva had spotted a smaller one wearing a blue coat and golden buttons, which she liked best. Each stood their ground.
‘We can take both, and they will be friends. What do you think?’
‘They can guard the Christmas tree together.’
‘It’s settled, then!’ Minerva said enthusiastically, turning to the seller and preparing to speak in a very broken German.
She very carefully put them into her bag, thanked the lady behind the small counter, and glanced at Severus again. The child was suddenly very silent. He was still holding her hand, but was staring at something on her right, his black eyes wide open. She turned around.
Ah, of course.
The next stand was the most beautiful one in the market. There one would find an infinite number of Christmas paper lanterns, all glowing in the late afternoon’s darkness: hanging from the ceiling, they were swaying softly, each of a different colour. Some were four-pointed stars, other eight-pointed stars; they were red, orange, yellow or white. Here and there one could distinguish some green or pink, and each were magnificently decorated, with golden patterns and delicate shapes. The biggest, Moravian stars had been hung in the middle, and Severus felt like he could finally touch the sky.
‘The astronomy teacher needs to come here, so he can see the constellations’, he whispered, unable to take his eyes off the lanterns.
‘We could bring a star to show him. Can you choose one?’
‘I can?’ he asked timidly, but for once without adding that he didn’t want it, and was just looking.
‘You can’, Minerva replied fondly.
It took them half an hour to pick the right one, a deep red one ornamented with green and golden motifs and drip shaped cut-outs.
‘Hier ist dein stern, Liebling’, the lady told him, handing him the carefully wrapped item.
He insisted on carrying it.
Severus left the Christmas market with a smile on his face and stars in his eyes – the Weihnachtslampion was hung above the Christmas tree, to watch over the nutcrackers.

And this got me hella surprised, @themugshotexperience31. Not kidding! But I brought this upon myself myself, so lett'ce do it.
1. Favourite place in your country?
My very hometown... Olomouc. As a former capital of Moravia, it's very culturally rich and pleasant in general. It's quite small, not really peopley, and if it seems like it is, we're definitely a nicer folk than Praguers.
Also, I feel very attracted to Rožnov pod Radhoštěm, in Moravian Wallachia. Probs 'cause my great-grandfather was from there.
And Brno.
5. Favourite song in your native language?
Any traditional Moravian song. So, here you have 'Když sem šel z Hraďišťa' sung by Jožka Černý, from Moravian Slovakia.
Hehe, but not to diss Czech pop scene entirely, even though I really don't listen to Czech pop much. So, have some 'Chci tančit' ('I want to dance') by Mirai and, something from the commie times, 'Znala panna pána' ('A maiden knew a man') by Václav Neckář and Helena Vondráčková.
6. Most hated song in your native language?
'Sraz českých bohémů' ('A Gathering of Czech Bohemians'???) by Wohnout. Not my favourite. Not gonna give you a link.
7. Three words from your native language that you like the most?
'Rožnout' 'to turn lights on', 'smrt' 'death' and 'hvězda' 'a star'.
8. Do you get confused with other nationalities? if so, which ones and by whom?
Any Slav, who's not Russian, will be mistaken for a Russian.
13. Does your country (or family) have any specific superstitions or traditions that might seem strange to outsiders?
Many. But, this particular one, I don't know if it's only our fam's superstition or legend, but ever since we were kids, our mum'd been telling us that everytime you pick a Veronica persica flower, or speedwell, you may conjure rain.
And guess what we did, and still, do... and did/does it conjure rain? YES! For the most of the time, though...
15. A saying, joke, or hermetic meme that only people from your country will get?
Commie memes. Or "Pepíček jokes". Or Praguers jokes.
16. Which stereotype about your country you hate the most and which one you somewhat agree with?
That we're fat drunkards, looking like stuck in a 15-years-ago time, who complain a lot and do nothing for it.
Oh, that's what I think about my country... lol.
But yeah, we can complain a lot.
18. Do you speak with a dialect of your native language?
I do. Or am supposed to. I'm Moravian, we defs talk different than Bohemians or Silesians, some vocab and accent-wise, but within Moravia, I'm from Hanakia (Hanakia is one of a few Moravian cultural regions) and among these regions you get stuff e.g. pronounced differently, like 'mouka' 'flour'.
'mouka' 'flour' (standard Czech) - 'móka' (central Moravian, or Hanakian dialect) - 'múka' (south Moravian dialects),
Believe me that these subtle changes can amuse, or even confuse, people.
19. Do you like your country’s flag and/or emblem? What about the national anthem?
Our flag and the emblem or coat of arms - very simple, very likable 'cause of it, imo. And the anthem, funny thing: our anthem's very lyrical, it's not a march-style kind of anthem, like those of Slovakia or Poland as it was taken from a theatre play.
23. Which alcoholic beverage is the favoured one in your country?
My country is a weird mix of beer, wine and hard liquor lovers. But generally it's like this: regionally, Bohemia is famous for its beer, Moravia for hard liquor and wine (wine's specifically cultivated in southern parts of Moravia).
27. Favourite national celebrity?
All actors, actresses and directors who made it into Hollywood or elsewhere west - Karel Roden, Miloš Forman etc.. Plus the legends of Czech cinematography like Jaroslav Marvan, Nataša Gollová, František Filipovský and many more.
29. Does your region/city have a beef with another place in your country?
Yes, here it's everybody vs. Prague, Bohemia vs. Moravia, and you know what? I genuinely enjoy the bickering, and even fist fights that can occur.
30. Do you have people of different nationalities in your family?
Not in my closest family, but my great-uncle (one of my maternal grandma's sisters' husband) is a Slovak Roma and I love him to pieces. And his sister got married to our fam, too.
Okay, I tried to keep this post as short as possible. So, if you have any questions, ask away! I'll be glad to answer them.

M45 - Pleiades (LRGB)
M45 - Pleiades (LRGB) by Mike Raggett Via Flickr: Located at a distance of 440 light years from Earth the Pleiades star cluster is a prominent object in the winters night sky.

I was watching Bridgerton and having a good laugh when I realized it was time for me to write a gossip column from the Unshakeable-verse for your edification.
Vienna Social Gazette
December 20, 1869
Much of Vienna undoubtedly rejoiced at the return of a certain young aristocrat to our fair city, particularly those ladies who would like some idea of what they will be wearing in five years. For some, though, Countess von H___’s arrival back in Vienna may seem a mixed blessing. Particularly as she is no longer a countess at all, but rather simply Mrs. K____. Considering this particular lady’s taste for adventure, it surely is only logical that she should disappear to England with the excuse of a mysterious illness and return several months later married to a commoner.
Of the lady’s new husband, little is known besides what Mrs. K herself has proudly revealed: that he is of Hungarian extraction, a violinist by trade, and a former employee of the Odysseum Opera Company (primarily known for a performance of The Marriage of Figaro in which several bats attacked audience members). It seems unlikely that the lady’s parents are pleased with such a match, as for some time they seemed keen on an alliance with one Baron von B____--though as he is recently married to a Moravian ballerina, that ship has sailed.
It is a strange day indeed for our Empire when one of society’s brightest stars elects to wed an artist who lacks both breeding and fortune. This author, however prefers to consider it simply a sign of the times.

As a toddler, you possibly keep in mind having a brief fascination with the celebs.

She wants him to know how she feels. She wants him to know how important he is and how much she values him. The only fear she has is if he rejects it. What would that mean?
❝ Thranduil? ❞ 
     Alone for the evening, Aurelia steps forward with her hands tightly clasped behind her back. She’s a bundle of nerves and it’s obvious as teeth chew on her bottom lip and her face is red and hot to the touch. ❝ I wanted... to thank you for everything you’ve done for me... for everything you continue to do. I don’t know how I can ever repay you... but... ❞
     Hands lift to rest against her chest as eyes close tightly. Blinding light envelops them for but a moment before it slowly collapses in on itself, trapped behind closed fingers. When she slowly opens her hand, a crystalized moravian star floats in her palm, a pulsing glow emitting from it. Arms extend to offer it to him, tears forming in the corners of her eyes.
❝ My heart... is yours... ❞

Tumblr stories about bizarre Holiday traditions are the best because so many families have them. And when you mention it to anyone who isn’t a member of that handful of people, they just go “!?”, and chances are they’ll turn around and say something equally “!?”-able to you. But to both of you, what you told your friend is completely normal.
Sure, there’s the more common oddities like topping the tree with a Moravian Star, or hiding a specific figurine in a tiny scale model town (In my family’s case, a Very Old Sheep, made of wood and cotton, possibly by one of my great-grandmothers, who plays hide-and-seek with us in a tiny Spanish Bethlehem) but there’s also the downright silly.
Like Henry, the little plastic frog who lives underneath the tree because of that one time my dad found a real frog under there.
I want to hear about your Henry the Christmas Frog.
