  1. Wow! Such beautiful photos! Carousels are so much fun, and quite magical! My granddaughter always loves them, but I think they are enjoyed by all ages. Nice selection! The one on youtube from Switzerland is unique!!

  2. They are so beautiful and the memories of riding a carousel put a smile on my face this AM. Thanks guest blogger Joanne and thank you too Ruth E to always starting my morning off in a good way!

  3. Such a worldly blog you have; it’s always fun to see what treasures your connections across the globe share.

    As a child I was scared of carousels; I think it was the painted features on all of the animals; they looked kind of menacing to me.

    As an adult, I have to confess I’m still not a fan of this ride…

  4. All 3 are wonderful. I am drawn to the novel expressions on the cat & cow and from Beaune.

Thanks for your visit. It's always good to hear you stopped by.
