A Storybook Circus

Wow!  It's  been  a  while  since  I  blogged---I've  been  busy!   We  had  such  a  good  time  at  Disney  and  boy  did  that  week  sure  go  fast.   Disney  World  is  such  a  wonderful  place,  and  apparently  about  a  million  other  people  think  the  same  thing, because  I  swear  that's  how  many  people  were  there!   But  in  spite  of  the  crowds--we  still  enjoyed  ourselves  and  the  wonderful  weather!   It  was  so  good  to  be  in  warmth  and  see  lots  of  sun--both  of  which   have  been  lacking  around  here  until  we  came  back.   I  think  we  brought  it  back  with  us,  because  it's  finally  starting  to  feel  like  Spring  around  here!!
 
So  when  I  was  at  Disney,  I  picked  up  a  'few'  souvenirs,  and  when  I  was  in  Fantasyland  mostly  for  children, (but  still  magical  for  everyone)  I  purchased  a  mug  from  their  new  Storybook  Circus  area.   Fantasyland  is  undergoing one  of  the  largest  renovations  in  Disney's  history--it's  just  awesome.   They  even  built  a  new  castle--the  Beast's  castle  from  Beauty  and  the  Beast.   

But  back  to  the  mug--coffee  in  it-- in  my  studio--
 
 
 
....and  that  bottle/lamp  thing  next  to  it  I  found  at  a  flea  market  in  Daytona--we  went  to  visit  our  son  who's  just  recently  moved  there,  and  we  saw  the  flea  market,  and  I  can't  pass  up  a  good  flea  market  no  matter  where  I  am.
 
This  is  the  after  shot  of   my  bottle--
 
 
...my  circus  doll,  and  then  I  kept  going--
 
 
 
...with  these  Graphic 45  Le  Cirque  papers  (love  all  of  their  papers!)
 
Next  was  this  old  alarm  clock  that  I've  had  forever--
 
 
 
...still  thinking  circus....
 
 
 
 
 
And....even  more  circus..
 
 
 
 
 
I'm  actually  not  a  big  fan  of   going  to  the  Circus--but  I  Really  Really  enjoy  making circus  art!
 
I   have  to  thank  Disney  World  for  giving  me  this  spark  for  some  new  art--
 
 
 
It  was  nice  to  get  back  home  and  back  to  my  studio,  but  maybe  I  should  go  back  to  Disney  for  some  more  inspiration   ; )
 
 
And  how  much  do  you  love  this?!

 
 
 Only  at  Disney!
