Tick tack…in use

I have inherited an old wall clock from my grandmother. It has been in my hallway for several years. I had an idea to decorate the inside and I used some furnitures that were a bit out of scale for my dollhouses, so I put it in here.  Maybe a clever mouse lives here, and just maybe he likes to fix old clocks, do a bit of gardening and read some books…just maybe;)

It’s a very subtle decor and you almost have to know about it before you see it. Part of the fun I think. Do you have a wall clock you can decorate?

What a lovely idea Christel. I like it a lot. I don't have a clock I can decorate but this seems a good enough reason to get one!

I´ts a great idea, Christel, I like the comparison between 1:1 and 1:12, that your eye and brain is forced to make here..every time you move your head a little bit, you have to make adjustments to adapt..

A funny idea and so lovely too! I love it and it really makes me wish I had a wall clock like that too.
My grandmother also had one, but it was inherited by my uncle.

It makes me think of this nursery rhyme
Hickory Dickory dock; the mouse ran up the clock, the clock struck one, the mouse ran down, hickory dickory dock ...
What a brilliant idea ! i like it a lot.

O what a cute and clever idea Christel!!!
I would have loved to se the little mouse sitting on the chair reading....I picture him with old fashion pants, suspenders and some reading glasses a la Harry Potter!!! :)

It is one charming and very original scene.
Probably a personage to complete her(it), though this way I like much.
An embrace




Es un escena encantadora y muy original.
Quizas un personage para completarla, aunque asi me gusta mucho.
un abrazo
