Carousel

I bought this carousel on eBay some time ago. It was brown and didn't have any decor on it except of the wonderful horses. So I painted it white with blue stripes on top, made some ornaments in clay and printed some pretty pictures on paper that I glued on. It is almost 1/12 scale I would say. I love it as a decoration all year round but it is quite festive now at Christmas time.

Nydelig liten karusell, og du er tydeligvis den kreaive typen som lager det lille ekstra for å sette en spiss på det hele. Sluttresultatet ble nydelig.

Takk for at du likte oppskriften på Foccacia. Flott å dele slikt, er det ikke ..?!

Godt nyt år til deg også.

Hei Christel,
godt nytt år!
Så søt en karusell, er ofte innom og ser på din koselige side, du er så flink!
Du spurte for en tid siden(så det i dag) ang. Julia Child's Beef Bourguignon. Jeg brukte terninger til kjøttkraften, og den ble valdig god og mektig. Kjøtet ble kjempemørt.Jeg tåler ikke rødvin, derfor byttet jeg den ut med øl.
Klem Gry : )
