I was going through my list of suggested challenges and way back on my list was this suggestion by Sara...Clowns. I didn't think I had many, but the more I thought about it, I figured I had enough for a challenge. Better late than never Sara...vintage clowns.
I know a lot of people are creeped out by clowns. I have never had issue with them. I have been to quite a few estate sales with clown collections...entire rooms of clowns. I don't have nearly that many (nor do I ever want to).
Vintage cupcake picks.
Clowns on chalk boxes. Part of my collection.
I almost didn't get this clown cookie jar at a local thrift store. He had a decent price on him, but when I found out everything in the store was half price....he had to come home with me. He lives in the studio and holds old milk caps.
I love this old party decoration. The clown has a flocked face and is marked Japan on the bottom.
This clown was in a hodgepodge of holiday stuff I got recently. I thought he was handmade, but I saw another one on Ebay the other day which left me wondering of his origins. His green body is a ornament.
Another clown party favor...perhaps a whistle. This clown and the clown above live in my curiosity cabinet. Clown spun heads.
In my vintage wrapping paper stash I had some clown paper.
This paper is dated 1953.
On a last clown note...remember my awesome clown shoes?
