a merry merry-go-round

Once upon a time when I was a little girl, we would go visit my grandparents.

They had a red square box with a few toys in it.

In that box was my favorite toy--the one I went for every time.  It was mesmerizing with its little moving chairs and the little song it played (In the Good Ole Summertime) as it went round and around.
When my grandparents passed, I was asked if there was anything particular I'd like to have to remember them.  This was the one thing.

Saturday night we were out and about, when we came upon a moving sale.
And there, down in the grass, was this little community mouse porta potty.

Looking passed the filthiness, it became evident that underneath the dirt and mouse droppings, was a very merry merry-go-round.
Five dollars later, I now have a collection.

This one plays a nice, little song that I don't know. (*update*Brother Jason says the song is The Skaters Waltz)

There is no wood on this one, and some of the decals are missing.

I particularly like how angry the carnival workers are.  Everybody else is just having a good time, eating their cotton candy, listening to nice little songs,  and riding the rides, but they have to push and pull to make the people go around.

It's a lot of hard work for them.

I would be mad too.
I cleaned it up.
This is stuff I like.

Sara likes it too.

How are you making your today world beautiful?
