I recently switched the frames around in our powder room and wanted something big on the wall above our toilet since that’s what you see first. I decided to continue with the circus “theme” I had going with the other art and searched Ebay for a circus poster. There’s a wide range of prices, depending on what you’re looking for and what you’re willing to spend. (I was looking for big and cheap.) I found this poster for around $15 and loved how simple and bold it was all at the same time.
And, I loved that it wasn’t shiny and new. The seller said it’s from 1959, and since I wasn’t sure how much “handling” it could handle, I decided to forego a frame and just tacked it right up on the wall. I think it works with an old poster. (Plus, I like this look. I blogged about it here.)
I like the little details, like the union stamp:
And, every time I use my powder room, I think of the book Water for Elephants that I finally read last year. I never saw the movie, but the book gave me a whole new perspective on the circus. . . :)
