Something I finished about a week ago.
The wee 'boxes are 1x1 1/2 and the center one is 1 1/2 by 2 1/2.

This is wonderful! The gears and "Time Flies" are such great parts, but my favorite is the add of the butterflies.

Thanks, all!
I like the eye chart, too. I must have played with those dang gears for at least two hours before i was happy with where they were.

Wow, this is absolutely perfect! I love that it looks like some sort of official magical symbol of the leader of a secret organization... I'm thinking it belongs on the desk of the supreme leader of  the order of super-secret-philosophical-timetravelers... I adore your choices of color and combination of little gadgets, as usual, but then I haven't yet seen anything of yours that I didn't love Grin

And I really like that the back always looks as interesting as the front Cheesy

You are so smart, the gears and the title go very well together. I like that it has lots of details but still is small.

I love the integration of the real gears with the paper. The combination of  real with imagined really brings the viewer into the fantasy.

I did use E6000. I applied a lot of it with a tooth pick to areas that were tiny but still needed a strong adhesive. Glad you like it.
Thanks for all the kinds words folks!
