So, I have loved vintage circus imagery for forever. And now, I have the opportunity to use it as an inspiration in a room I am designing. My head is full of ideas...and I can not wait to see them come to life.
Some...or maybe most...of you may have read the book Water For Elephants by Sara Gruen.
I loved the book...and I was looking forward to seeing it come to the big screen. What I loved most about the movie was the warmth that was brought to the imagery. It was exactly what I envisioned when I looked at the vintage photographs that I loved from the early 1900's

I can't imagine the lives these people led. I am sure it was anything but boring : )
