Inspiration for how the old carousel my heroine's mother commissioned looks at the end of my novella, The Best Man in Brookside, after it's been renovated & updated with a steam engine. In real life, an Italian carousel.

J’aime photographie parce qu’ils prennent simple, courant images et ils devenir éblouissant.

Ahhh, Paris/the mother of all carousels. I will gleefully conquer you one day, exquisite French carousel.

The Pea's Room

Free standing carousel horses surround the clear tent. The tent's exterior has fairy lights from the roof to the ground in vertical lines (imitating a carousel).

The art of carousel creatures is not only beautiful, but fun and makes me feel like a kid again, especially if I get to ride.  To travel around the states just to visit carousels, would be a dream vacation.   This sea horse is  at the San Jose, California, Park and Zoo.
