The Circus


I pre-posted today's post since yesterday I had to go help move my mom into assisted living, and I wasn't sure I would be home or staying down where she lives 2 hours away. I did end up coming home, and the move went better than expected. Hopefully today I won't get any panicked phone calls, and when I call her to check in, hopefully she will be happy.
So a few more photos only today. More from my museum trip last week to the Shelburne Museum in Vermont.
Hope its not too boring!

 I thought this was so amazing-and fun! I'm glad these pieces made it into a museum and didn't get burned or trashed or ruined.








What a talented man this circus creator was.
And a few other fun  and playful views from the circus exhibit.






I am not even a circus  lover, but the display was so amazing I had to make a post about it. The circus building was very large, and very full of some amazing models and displays. This is only a very short section of the building. I bet it was at least 15 time longer!
Back tomorrow with some art before I head off to work. Work. Did I really write that? Can't be back to school already.
Thanks for stopping by my blog.

Glad Mom is settled. I know you will rest easier now. Fantastic tiny circus, amazing that someone had the patience to build all those tiny characters. Schools back, ah, well, we can still make a plan for a Saturday right? xox
