  2. Hi Stephie,

    I go for red, pink & yellow! Lovely mosaics!

    Lieve groet,


  3. Love the stripes, especially the red and white stripes!

  4. Its the vintage circus items for me! The juggler's batons are very cute. My other half, Rob will pull out his juggling tricks to get a laugh from our nieces & nephews - Works like a charm.

  5. Hi Stephie ! fun post :) All styles of circus are amazing. Letter cushion,striped chair,pillow doll , pink dresser and elephant enchant me !!!
    You have a lot of patience to select beautiful things.
    Happy Tuesday
    Many Hugs

  6. Thanks Maria, Madelief and Victoria for leaving me such kind comments -I must admit that I am a bit partial to the red but the pink is pretty nice too!

    Hi e! It sounds like Rob is "King of the Kids"! There is nothing like a good juggling act to keep kids amused - maybe you should get those batons for him so he can add to his repertoire!

    Thanks Kena. I would love to get some of the letter cushions for my place! It always takes a while to put it all together but I find it quite fun too!

    It's so good to hear from you all. Please forgive me for not being able to visit you until later in the week - we have some access problems here:(

    Can't wait to catch up with you all,
