Carousel in Aix en Provence-Creating the Faded Antique Look

The Faded Antique Look with Texture
In Scott Kelby's "The Adobe Photoshop CS5 Book For Digital Photographers", there is a chapter called Side Effects-special effects for photographers. I have had fun with a few of these recipes and thought a photograph of my beautiful granddaughter shot in Provence last year would make a lovely faded antique look as carousels, to me, look vintage. The recipe for this shot is here.  I added two different layers of texture to create an additional vintage feel to the photo. As her clothes are modern, I did not use any grunge techniques to create an older photograph. I like this effect and will definitely use it again. What do you think?
