Straight out of fairytale Meggie..........I wonder if you could hire it for weddings, my daughters getting married this September and it is to be a vintage themed affair, how lovely would it be to see her arrive in such a splendid carriage.You have some lovely back roads to explore Meggie. x
I couldn't believe my eyes when I first saw it! I think it would be fun to give it a coat of paint..
That is amazing and wonder if 'they' ever use it? It is so cute and I imagine anyone would like a ride in it, if we had the chance...
It appears to not have been used in awhile. I could see the pumpkin carriage at a wedding with the bride arriving in it.
Meggie, I have to admit...I always sing "Take Me Home Country Roads..." when you post photos of your journeys:-D I love the fairy tale theme and wonder if Cinderella found her Prince in Texas! XOXO
Hmmmmmm...I'm sure there is, at least, one prince in Texas.
Isn't that fun! I love driving the back roads too and seeing what's out there.
And, it's fun to share it with my blog readers...
What a wonderful place you live Meggie, full of surprises and delights, and simply beautiful.
Thank you, Scarlet. Wouldn't a teen-age daughter love to ride to a dance in this!
What a lovely - and very clever - design! Jx
Hi Meggie, Very interesting! What fun it would be. Joyous Wishes, Linda
That is amazing, what fun! Suzy x
that's too cool!! i wish for a ride. where are my mice? ( :
I'm very curious who made this carriage, and for what reason. Something to dream and fantasize about. Love your country roads. groetjes, Gerda
How neat! Just when I think I've seen everything...along comes something quite unusual. Love it. I'd love to know what it was really used for!
What an amazing carriage Meggie,Painted up and with some tlc it would look great. and of course a nice horse to pull it.Would be interesting to know more about its history.happy Tuesday Val
What a find! That is too funny.
Hi Meggie! The pumpkin carriage is delightful! I read an earlier post of yours about your German heritage. Perhaps, like mine, your ancestors many generations back, were from Lower Lusatia,or the Brandenburg-Silesian-Posen borderland, as most of these immigrants from 1870 onwards, went to either Texas or South Australia and Victoria. These areas of origin are the homelands of the Wends culture and identity and the Wendish Heritage Society Australia has very strong ties with the Texas Wendish Heritage Society to further investigate and research these fascination histories.I wonder if it would relate to your family. Interesting that these Wendish German families chose these two spots in the world to emigrate to.
Well that was a fun site to see !
You find the most wonderful things - and this one is charming!
