And Then The Circus Came to Town

The circus rolled into our little town and for an evening we were taken back in time. I felt like we were characters in a book as I listened to kids talk about the tent raising and the clowns and the elephant rides. Yes, there were acrobats, tigers, camels and, of course, a juggler.
But the highlight for me, I have to admit, was when the little barking dog got to ride on the back of the pony. I had to laugh out loud at that one. Wish I had a picture but it was just too, too dark in that tent for my camera.
One night only, and then the entire circus packed up and moved on to the next town. Just like a comet in the night sky, if you don't see it this time around you might have to wait a awhile for the next one to come sailing by.

These are two of my new hand painted signs just listed on my website. This Cottage by the Sea sign reeeeally makes me want to visit the ocean again. It's slightly distressed, just enough to make it look like it's seen many year's worth of high tides.

And Le Nid is French for The Nest. It's a sweet little sign that would fit in anywhere. Both of these are listed in my Hand Painted Signs category on my Wallflowers website.

Happy Easter

I wanted to wish everyone a very Happy Easter. I hope your day is as brightly colored as these little gems.
We had a lot of fun dying these eggs, and now we just have to wait for the Bunny to come and hide them.
...I can't wait!
