Ruby Tuesday #2





Cafesjian's Carousel is located at Como Park in St. Paul, MN.  I took these pictures last June while on vacation.  The carousel has 68 horses and was built in 1914.  It was rescued at auction in 1988 and restored.

For more information see http://www.ourfaircarousel.org/

Thank you for stopping by my second contribution.  Ruby Tuesday is hosted by Work of the Poet.  Stop by there to see more participants.

Hi Minky(do), I like your carousel horses, I would like to have one. I do have a plastic Hobby Horse I might use as one.
Thank you for peeking in on my baby quilts. This is a nice project for us.

The carousel and horses are beautiful. A throwback to a different era, where dreams were important - didn't we as kids want to ride a colorful horse into dreamland?

That's a gorgeous carousel. We've got a similar one (though not as big) in the middle of our city. I don't dare put Elijah on it yet though - he's much too little.

Wonderful photos! I love carousels and may just have to hunt for one to photograph.

Happy (Belated)Ruby Tuesday. Thanks for visiting my blog ;-)
