  6. These look amazing. We have one in the garden with a vining hydrangea. Really like the one you show by the staircase. Have a great day!

  7. Wow…you have given me something to think about! That pic from CT. homes and gardens is especially amazing. I love them for the outdoors, what an elegant way to accessorize the great outdoors…..

  23. I love armillary spheres :-) I was in Vancouver a few years ago and found one there that was exactly what I had been looking for. I just had to but it, even though it had to be shipped home. I also have a chandelier in the entry that’s very similar to an armillary sphere. I’m just a bit addicted 😉

  24. I had no idea what these were called – so thanks for the lesson! :) I like all of these examples a lot, but that one by the pool is definitely my favorite.

  25. I have always loved Armillary spheres, and you have truly rounded up some incredible ones to share… They add so much to a space, inside or out! One day, my dream is to have one of my own to enjoy :-)

  26. I never actually knew the name of these things but I love them!
