So this has been a project long in the making.  I bought this clock at a yard sale over 2 years ago and was so disappointed when it didn't work.  Rather than toss it I decided to us it for parts but couldn't bear to part with the shell.

So after the last Jar of Whimsies swap I was inspired to create this little diarama (sp??)  A few items were crafted by me, a few were received in the swap, som found in the backyard, and there are a couple things I had laying around.


I am in love with it and that is what counts, but would love to hear some cc!

Adorable!
What a beautiful and harmless way of transforming an annoying alarm clock! I usually just want to smash it in the mornings  Grin

I think this is an awesome use of a broken clock, and I totally want to yoink the idea. Also, the birch bark was a perfect choice!

I think I need glasses,
Is that a ladybug or something under the right foot of the clock?
