Victorian Amusements

Jeanette of Soartful challenges gave us a lovely image of a carousel horse this week:

It's lovely, isn't it?  Well, the first thought I had when I saw it was of a photo I took of our old-fashioned carousel at the zoo this past year.  So I combined them. But then it needed something else, something like, um, I know!  Victorian children!  So I googled "Victorian children" and found this interesting shot of these little darlings.  Look at the looks on their little faces.  Do ya think they're a happy bunch?  Now if you know me at all, you know that I generally add some kind of caption to my LO's.  THIS LO, however, begs to be titled by you, dear reader. 
I think it looks as if the horse is sneaking up on the little buggers and is going to scare the be-jee---  OOPS!  I said you could tell the story. 
OK, you're on.
What's up with this?
I can hardly wait.


  1. Wow, this is beautiful. I love how you used a real photo with the images. The glowing horse is wonderful. I think the horse is a magic horse and coming to put a happy spell on the children. Thanks for being Soartful.

  2. The horse may be possibly trying to get payback for something, not is fantastic, really love the fading around the horse

  3. I love Lucy! I hope I didn't over feed her though:-)

  4. Oh, this is SOOO pretty!!! You did SUCH an awesome job!!!

  5. Oh, well done. I can't think of a caption right off but it does look like the phantom horse is about to teach those mischievous little ones a lesson.

  6. Definitely looks like a ghost horse to me.


Thank you for your visit. I really appreciate it!
