Despite the fact that the illustrations came from two different books, the graphics are so cute and colorful that it didn't matter that there were different illustrators! I incorporated a song my Little Grampa used to sing me in the letter G tag. "There was a man named Dandelion, had three red shirts on his clothesline. He bought a goat and tied him hard, right by the neck, in his back yard." Then next verse of the song had the goat coughing up the shirt to flag the train, see the red shirt?
The old barn window from the Gold Rush Days Flea Market is a frame for a vintage circus poster; it came from the summer headquarters for the Ringling Brothers Circus in Baraboo, Wisconsin. I'll tell the circus tale in the next post, it was such a fun place to be! We revisited our Honeymoon destination on our 30th anniversary, Baraboo is just a short distance from The Wisconsin Dells.
This set of tags are hung on vintage measuring tapes. The tiny clothes pins made of plastic are vintage dolly clothes pins, the pinching ones were from JoAnn and are a perfect way to hang tags.
Next time won't you sing with me...
