The Circus is in Town


I seem to be drawn toward Circus Themed creations at the moment, I guess it's since I attended a small Circus last Saturday with my boys and hubby. It was the first time my twin boys had been to the Circus and they were totally amazed by the whole thing, from the moment they saw the Circus Tent they were fascinated and constantly asking questions, it was wonderful to see.

This assemblage has been created using various vintage Ephrema, from old Circus Posters to Vintage Pierrot photographs, lettering from old papers and even an old sewing pattern, all thrown together in the mix to create this little assemblage. Happy Weekend to all my lovely readers! x

These little things you create are so cute!! I especially like the fairy in the bottle ;)
I'm thinking of trying to make a diorama, I haven't worked out all of the details yet, but when I do, I'll get around to making it.
Thanks for the inspiration and bring a smile to my face, which you do every time I visit!!
