Quote of the Day

If there is one thing Voldemort cannot understand, it is love. He didn't realize that love as powerful as your mother's love for you leaves its own mark. Not a scar, no visible sign...to have been loved so deeply, even though the person who loved us is gone, will give us some protection forever.

Fangirl Fridays – My Clowns


 My Clowns

I collect clowns. I’ve been collecting clown dolls for more than 30 years and really don’t remember what inspired me to start the collection. Maybe it was the first time I went to the circus as a child, watching these 2 “clumsy” clowns doing acrobatics, making the audience laugh.

The most ancient clowns have been found in the 5th dynasty of Egypt. Their role changed over time, but the art of clowning has existed for thousands of years.

I know that today a lot of people think clowns are scary. The blame rests with characters like Pennywise the clown from Stephen King’s book (and movie) It, or Twisty, that disgraced clown from the TV series American Horror Story, and the likes. But I refuse to think about those or acknowledge them.

I love the funny, smiling faces of clowns. I try to find the ones that have something extra for me, preferably artfully crafted. Their cheerfulness brightens my day and lightens my heart. I look for them everywhere, at every place I visit. I’d like to share with you just a few of my 250+ clowns, and tell you in a few words where and how I found them. I’ll also recommend a companion book that comes to mind as I reminisce about each one’s origin and unique personality. I guess it is also a kind of journey around the globe J.

Will you come with me for a peek?
