Its a Magical Weekend: Awards, Tagged and Carnival Toys!

I'd like to start the weekend off by introducing you to Jeannie The Giraffe and Alistaire The Lion's Circus friend: Henrietta Bellows!

Henrietta Bellows, is the Hippo Ballerina from The Carlisle Circus, her pals are Jeannie The Giraffe and Alistaire the Lion. Henrietta just joined the circus and was recommended by Lucy the Elephant, whose one of the lead stars of the Mer-Elephants Water Show at The Carlisle Circus!

Miss Bellows or as her friends call her Lady Henrietta, hails from Africa and was discovered dancing near a water hole from the symphony coming from the voices of 3 crocodiles known as the 3 Tremors, who also were asked to join the Circus. One of the 3 Tremors, Bethany Gaterstone, wrote a special song for the Mer-Elephants Water Show which consists of 5 acts, Henrietta who opens with her Royal Under Water Ballet, The Sea Horse Opera, The Fiji Mermaid of Madagascar, The Water Sprites and The Mer-Elephants Water Extravaganza.

Come visit Henrietta and The Water Show for 3 days only at Dreamland in Coney Island, until the show and circus sails to their tour of the seven seas.

Henrietta is another example of how you can alter a rubber circus animal. This is a great recycling project/Green too. The original project is available in my book: Altered Art Circus, Quarry Books Feb. 1, 2009!

Next I'd like to give a magical thank you to two amazing artists, Tristan of Enchanted Revelry and Debra at It's All Good, for sending some blog awards/Tags my way, they both really made my day.

If you are not familiar with Tristan's works, you must head over to his site immediately, its amazing, completely amazing:
I must warn you, you could be there for awhile, reveling in the beauty and magic of the blog, the works and info inside it.

This award I received is accompanied by the following words:
"This blog invests and believes in the PROXIMITY-nearness in space, time and relationships. These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement! Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers! Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this clever-written text into the body of their award."

Now that means I must pass this award onto 8 fellow bloggers, this is so hard for me, because, well, I love all my blogger friends.

Following the award from Tristan I was given this award from the amazing and talented: Debra who is truly wonderful and like Tristan so talented. Please take a moment and visit her wonderful blog at:
