Knick Knack Retrospective 2

This week’s knick knack retrospective is about my carousel horse. Jim bought me this horse at the Herschell Carousel Factory Museum in North Tonawanda, N.Y. on our first trip together. Jim brought me to Western New York to meet his grandparents and took me sightseeing while we were there. I loved visiting the Carousel Museum and seeing the horses. The craftsmanship is amazing. Years later we went there again with our then 3 year old son and the Grandparents. Watching the boy ride the carousel and hearing Jim’s Grandma talk about growing up next door to the factory made that visit even more special. When I look at this sweet souvenir that was given to me almost 25 years ago, it makes me smile. Maybe next time we visit the area we can go again and introduce our daughter to it.
