June goes to the Carnival!

Late one dark and rainy night, the carnival came to town. They hauled out their tents and pounded their stakes into the mud and mire. Slowly the tents rose into the Midwestern sky.

The fortune telling gypsy was there, The tilt a whirl was there.

The Siamese twins were there, the Ferris Wheel and Thunder Bolt were there.

They plastered the town with posters that cried "On with the show!"

Mr. Henderson's daughter June put on her prettiest summer frock.

And her hand carved coral circus peanut necklace...

And she put her allowance into her zig zag bag...

She stood in line with her girlfriends, giggling and laughing and bought her tickets!

They bought popcorn to munch...

And big wonderful clouds of cotton candy.

They admired the tattooed lady.

And felt the magic of a summer night spent at a carnival. Come visit the treasury live on Etsy before it expires! (And you can see my other collections here too.) Long Live Summer!

Lovely post Becky! I like those dresses and that purse! I also like the tatooed lady, she's tough and cool!
Enjoy mother's day :)
