Carnivals and Carousels

Bon lundi!

Intrigued by this photo? The arm coming out of a tree is not a Halloween gimmick, but part of a museum in Paris dedicated to fairground art: Le Musée des Arts Forains

Let's stay with that last thought...there is actually a museum in Paris full of carnival rides and carousels, and it is open to the general public for a very limited time each year.  Mark your calendars for the next opening, from December 26, 2013 through January 5, 2014, and stay tuned for an insider's look later this week.
