LET’S GO TO THE CIRCUS!

Another of my grands had a birthday this weekend, and we went to the circus.  Since I had Marty’s (A Stroll Thru Life) Summer Cloche Party (July 27th) on my mind, the dog act is under a cloche.

Where in the world did you find all those adorable circus items? This is such a happy and festive vignette and post.

That cloche is beautiful too. Is it hand painted?

Oh my word, how unreal is this. I can't even imagine how you think of all of this. The cloche is sensational and the whole pyramid is unbelievable. I love it. How fun, I am sure you had a super party. Hugs, Marty

Laurie I just felt like I came back from the circus. I thought that this was another one of your beautiful tablescapes but as I read and scrolled down, I just love your vignette on the tray. It's really beautiful and I just love all the detail. Great job.

Love the circus! What a fun way to celebrate a birthday. Love seeing all your circus treasures, Laurie, especially those little doggies under the glass dome. ;-)

Triple Wow Laurie!
That tiered display of circus nostalgia is wonderful!
You do have the best collections ever!
What a lucky grandchild to have such a creative and fun Grandma!
Like I said before, I want to be your grandchild too! lol.
Hugs,
