Something went wrong and the National Lillipop Day workshop never posted. We actually did it, Jim thinks it has somehting to do with Facebook updating their program. We will try to do better next week and will repeat the Lollipop Day WS.


Check out our Carousel Catalog from the menu bar above or go to our Etsy store Carol’s Carousel Shoppe. Also see our dedicated Facebook page, Carol’s Carousel Shoppe. This holiday is especially important to us as we are Carol’s Carousel Creations!

Carousel Animals come in various sizes: ornament, music box size, small, large, and extra large. Each size is listed separately with several varieties of horses plus other menangerie animals. These can be ordered in bisque, painted, or complete, which includes a base and pole.

Complete Carousels come in several sizes. Some can also accommodate a music box. We will be showing off our music Box size carousel during this week’s Facebook Live. There is a center circular floor, center piece, and roof. The floor sections form three rings — ring one has five, ring two has five, and ring three has seven. This is seventeem separate floor sections but can probably hold about twenty animals if staggared.

We plan to paint the Scioto Carousel during the Live this Thursday.

Spinning Carousels are platforms that hang from the top of a pole by four ribbons. There are two special carousels with designs in the base piece, Country (farm animals) and Woodland (raccoon, skunk, etc.). The third is generic and can be made for varioius occassions –Witches & Ghosts, Pilgrims, Santas, Soft Deer, Snowmen, and so on. Young children like to set the platform spinning and watch it unwind. Set one on a low table and watch them have fun. We have not had any problems with them breaking the piece.

Carousel Related Items include a horsehead (makes a good lamp), basket, wall plaques (horses), plate (CH atachment), and so on.

Non-Ceramic Carousel Items include jewelry (necklace, earrings, charm bracelet), confections (chocolate candy, cupcakes, cakes, cupcake boxes), and quilts (child-size with carousel panel).

No matter what you call it
a Merry-Go-Round, a Carousel, or a Carrousel,
taking a ride is joyful treat for kids of all ages.
