Sometimes Life can be a Circus...and more.. we got a call for another showing tomorrow at 10 a.m. on the house/hoping that goes well.

I've been cleaning/straightening things up all afternoon since noon today and am finally to the point where I can relax now.(at 10 p.m. this evening) Sheew..

Anyhow..yes sometimes life can seem like a circus..ha.
So..with that in mind..I plan on decorating our new home's dining room area in a vintage/retro circus theme...

Here are some of the fun things I have collected along the way and have saved back.

I also plan to have a wall decal similar to this one somewhere in the dining area.I think it will be rather fun and different.
Oh and before I forget..I forgot to share this peacock set that is part of the peacock collection I have saved back as well.

Isn't it pretty? Unfortunately 3 of the items arrived broken when I got this, but I did manage to rescue them and glue them back together. It is an 11 piece set.(sugar bowl, creamer, salt and pepper, 2 candlesticks, a large platter, a napkin holder, a candy dish,and a gravy bowl and another covered dish.I'll mostly use them for "looks" but plan on hanging the large platter on the wall and creating a nice table display with the other pieces.They aren't quite as golden colored as the image shows they are a little lighter than this.----------

Well..I'm crossing my fingers that tomorrows house showing goes well..these things always make me as nervous as a cat in a house full of rocking chairs. Sheew. I will be so glad when this house thing is behind us..I think I may need a vacation when all is said and done..ha.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Have a lovely day!

A circus theme for your dining room? Sounds delightful! What a fun person you are, decorating with the things you love all around you. Your peacock set is so cute, also!

How are you holding up? We had 2 showings while we were on vacation - realtor said they went well and both parties have just started looking at houses, so we just wait...
This is very hard, isn't it?! :( Life on hold and can't really make any plans for moving yet.
Hope it's going well for you!
