Yeah! The circus is READY! :)

Faerie Enchantment, a blog I only stumbled upon yesterday (much to my pleasure!) is having a Carnivale Soiree. Awesome Guy's great aunts (twins) were in the circus when they were young. We only have 1 photo of them during this time, but I absolutely cherish it! Can you imagine the guts it took to leave their family and join a circus?! They had great training though...Gene Kelly's (be still my heart!) dance studio was right in their hometown! They traveled up and down the east coast in the Johnny J Jones train circus. They are gone I wish I could of heard those stories!

I love these ladies...they accepted me right when Awesome Guy and I started dating and would look at me with so much love in their eyes that they dazzled me. There is more on the description on youtube, but enough've waited long enough already! The show MUST go on!

I hope you all realize how much I love you...I stayed up all night. :) Enjoy it!

This is just PRECIOUS!!! Thank you so much for your hard work and staying up all night!

I wasn't able to stay up so late last night, was so tired, and as such, can't find my clown friend, he hasn't shown up yet.

I hope he will show up sometime today to visit the carnival!!!

Seriously wonderful!

There were things with the painting...i had no idea that is what you did for the details...or that the black gave it that distressed look! I am so blown away...and the kids were hilarious. I am going to have to show this to my kids...they are going to laugh their heads off.

Thank you so much. What a tribute to your family, the past, and your art....!

Probably one of the most creative posts I've seen all day! I love the idea of using video and including family and your artwork! I have to confess I fall asleep when I see people a good way. It;'s so soothing that it's hypnotic!

Happy Soiree to you!

What a fabulous post. I loved your video and your painting. It must have been serendipity that led you to Lisa's blog. Wonderful Wonderful Soiree.
Thank you,

I was just checking to see if you had an etsy shop. You should really submit this wonderful video as your etsy commericial for your work. It's perfectly etsy. All that you would need is some credits and it would be such a hit!

The painting is wonderful. I was just telling another blogger that I have been very into the circus and hot air balloons lately and this painting hit the spot.
