When I was a child I had a story book about the circus and these images remind me of that story. I desperately wanted to be like the lovely lady in the tutu riding on horseback. I was never really into horses but doesn't that look like fun! I think it would tempt any young girl to run away and join the circus.

My favourite Ebay purchase ever!!
Well so far at least. Does ebay count as thrifting?? I don't think so. This wasn't even particularly cheap but I love it none the less. So what do you think this rolled up bundle of goodness is?
It's a quilt. Now I don't know much about quilts and this one does not look particularly well made to me. The stitching is pretty ho hum in parts especially on the binding. But is it not still the most enchanting snuggly thing ever?
I am in love with the old circus images, the lovely colours and just everything about it. It arrived on Friday and we have been snuggling in it all weekend. It was particularly good timing as Lottie has been dreadfully sick and we slept together on the lounge on Friday night and spent most of Saturday and Sunday under it as well.
