Inspired Sunday #1 - Mechanical Fairground Concert Organ

Laura has such a lovely blog and she is an amazing crafter and artists. Every Sunday she has a blog post called 'Inspired Sunday' which I look forward to every week but never quite made it to share my Sunday Inspiration. But today I thought I take the plunge and share with you something I have a bit of a soft spot for .... fairs ..... especially for the Flying Horses Carousels and those amazing Mechanical Fairground Organs.
We recently visited the BrooklandsMotoring and Aviation Museum and there it was ... the most amazing fairground concert organ built in 1922 in Waldkirch in Germany by A Ruth & Son ... fully restored and in working order with the most wonderful music
Isn't he adorable? If you would like to have a listen to the music, you will find quite a selection here.
Have a lovely Sunday and a good start to the new week, Petra.

Thanks for the sweet comments about my blog and my work. I'm so glad you linked up. Carousel organs have always been fascinating to me, and I love Baroque cherubs. Please feel free any time to link up your art!
Have a great week!
Laura
