I really like clowns, the make-up and expressions - so many ways to draw a funny face, sad clowns, happy clowns, those overly large shoes, funny walks, they come with umbrellas and flowers and handkerchiefs. I'm not sure what there isn't to like, but perhaps they are a little like Marmite - you either love them or hate them. If you love them like me, you should pop over to the Gentle Author's blog Spitalfields Life. He posted some utterly stunning shots today by John Claridge - portraits of clowns at this years Grimaldi Clown Service. 


  1. Terrifying! However, I have a morbid fascination for things that scare me..clowns being high up on the list, so I will take a look at the link and probably have to pour a glass of wine afterwards.

  2. Oh dear, I'm not keen ... I blame 'It' ... I can't like a clown ... I love your new header though :) ... Bee xx

  3. Vicar and Bee - Hope my funny little friend didn't scare you too much! I'm sorry. Think it's a good job I haven't seen 'It'! I'm such a scaredy cat that I just don't watch any horrors!


Hello! I love comments they make such nice surprises, so please say hello or whatever it is you'd rather say : ) I'll try and answer any questions you have, so do check back - if I'm busy it might take me a day or two, so be patient please.
