This fabulous bag was oneperfectday's entry to my European Street Team Circus Challenge but due to some weird glitch,unfathomable to me, the link on my blog closed early and I only just saw the entry - too late...I am really sorry! It is a beautiful and really clever interpretation of the Circus theme.
My partner has nursed an obsession for all things old and vw for most of his life having placed his name and number under the windscreen wiper of various objects of desire a number of times with the note " Dear Owner, If you ever think of selling this vehicle....". Well, the chickens came home to roost a few weeks ago when he got a phonecall from a campervan owner who had kept his note from three years ago! Various discussions on pros and cons of buying said vehicle commenced and to cut a long story short we are now the proud owners of a 1971 Bay windowed Dormobile van and I have to say I think she is a beauty!

My Rainbow necklace won the Street Team Challenge hosted by Dina Fragola last week so now I get the chance to pick the new theme!
Inspiration for my challenge idea comes from a trip out into the beautiful English countryside last weekend where I went to see the wonderful Giffords Circus. They tour villages greens of the West Country over the summer season bringing a magical musical extravaganza of a show with a different story to tell each year with stunning costumes, music and acts. So my challenge for the Street Team is going to be C I R C U S.Andrew Rees' website
The challenge is to run for two weeks so I pick the winner on the 18th July with last entries in by midnight on the 17th.
