It's no secret that I love working on custom projects and when the order came through for this Merry Mobile at the very start of the New Year I did a wee happy dance. I love making these mobiles! The brief was simple for this one, a mobile much like the original for a wee boy's room.
Since I don't hold these in stock at the moment I'd forgotten how much the shape and colours remind me of a circus and carnival. The big top and the carousel. It's funny because while working on the flowers for this mobile I was watching Water For Elephants, I didn't make the connection until just now! A happy coincidence and a lovely film (despite wincing at the thought of how violent Christoph Waltz was going to play August, he does 'unhinged' too well!).
