SHOW & TELL #20 - Clowns

Okay.....Here it is Friday again and Show & Tell time at Kelli's of There Is No Place Like Home. Go here and find out ALL about it, if you don't already know. Then pick something to Show and Tell us about. Put it on Mr. Linky's at Kelli's and then have a great time visiting all the other Show & Tell posts. It's such fun. Trust me!!!

What I am showing today are two little clowns I made a number of years ago. You can see they sit up high, on a shelf in our bedroom that my husband made to hold our TV and speakers to the stereo system. (Click on pictures for detail)




Nothing really special but just cute little guys that have brought us joy over the years.



HAPPY FIRST DAY OF FALL

sweet clowns. I used to collect them when I was little. But don't have them any longer.. I don't know where it all went. I really like the black and white perot style one. Just so sweet.

Oh there cute and remind me of toy clowns that were popular when I was a kid in the sixties.

I also enjoyed catching up on your Suzy Blue post with photos. The smashed car window was awesome!

I made those before too....similar anyway. Are they made from a piece of 2x4 wood, then costumed so they can perch on shelves? Super. Now you make me wanna make more...I have no idea where the two I made went. *giggles* [I especially like the black and white one]

Becky said...

I think they are very cute! Reminds me of the Raggedy Ann and Andy that I made many years ago that sit on a shelf at my mom's. I took picturs of them when I was 'home' last week. I'll have to post them for show and tell sometime.

Well I hate to say this, but clowns have always scared me!! Having them in my bedroom would cause awesome nightmares--perhaps it is because I never know what is behind the masks and I had dreams that were very scary when little!! But glad you can enjoy them, eh!

Thats very good handiwork, if they weren't clowns!

I am terrified of clowns and have been all my life. At a parade once when I was about 5, a clown grabbed me and put me in a cage with a person in a gorilla suit. I was terrified. My dad ran up and grabbed me out when he saw how scared I was.

They are both unique. It's so nice that they still bring you joy...

Nice job. The clowns are cute. You are very crafty.

Very nice clowns.

Myrna said...

Cute clowns. I also like the shelf--Tv out of the way, but viewable. good idea1

I think the clowns are adorable. I have a friend who is afraid of clowns--50+ and still scared of them. She doesn't even like cute cuddly ones like yours. She takes a lot of teasing for it--Not from me, oc course. AHEM!
