The Clock Shop and the Story

I have a story to tell..
I always wanted a grand father clock top or bonnet
 as I heard it referred to.
And I found one at a yard sale last year! 
It  was a cheap battery operated clock and had a cabinet with the pendulum in it and was marked $25.00
I was looking at it and the man selling
 it asked "Do you want it? $20.00"
Yes I want it!! So here it is. 
BEFORE:
 
 
I began to collect miniature clocks.
 I bought some and I made some.
 This sat in my craft room for  almost a year
 and I was frustrated with trying to make it like
  I thought it should look
 but I was unhappy.
So I asked my talented friend Cheryl Lee
and hired  her to do the shop for me.
 I supplied her with all I had the furniture, clock,
the doll and wallpaper.
The wallpaper I chose wasn't very good,
so I said do as you want however you would
 do it for yourself!
She did a marvelous, awesome job!
I told her the name of the shop. She chose
the lettering for it very nice gold fancy ones!
 

The Name of the shop "In His Time"
is from a bible verse
 
"He has made everything beautiful in its time.
He has also set eternity in the human heart;
yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end. "
 
 
Full view on base

Clock on the base. I took off the cabinet it was on.

She's adds such great details!
Look at the tiny real watch parts she placed on the shelf!

Well Walter sees it's time to get to
work on the clock for a very special costumer.
I hope you enjoy the story and tour of Walter's clock shop.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The story behind the story
 
My hubby is "Walter! "
 He always hated the idea that every time
I wanted to purchase a used
 clock to gut it and use for a miniature shop
he and tell me "NO, don't destroy that clock!"
One time I bought a clock on EBay and I sold one to him
 because he pleaded me not to destroy it..
He said it's a shame to ruin such a beautiful clock.
 I said "OK, OK!", if I can't gut it then I will sell it to you"
 ( I even gave him a discount!)
So when he ok-ed this clock for my project
 I just had to make it in his honor.
He has a thing for nice clocks. 
Walter repairs a lot of things  around here
but not usually clocks but he has fixed a few.
We have lots of clocks around here and some of them
 are those he would not let me use.
 
So this clock shop is dedicated to my hubby with love!
I am glad I took "time and waited" to find this clock
because of all the clocks I saw
 this was the best
clock for this project!
 
 
 All things are beautiful
 "In His Time!!! "
