I Have a Cuckoo Clock
I love cuckoo clocks. I have been coveting one for quite some time and when I saw this lovely walnut timepiece of awesomeness by Diamantini & Domeniconi I knew it must be mine. It's possibly the most ridiculous thing I've ever seen and therefore perfect!
See? It has antlers and everything! And a swingy pendulum thing at the bottom. And it does match the furniture...
Sadly, I had to admire from afar for a while, as it was very, very expensive, but I finally tracked it down for cheap(er) in a furniture store in Islington. And now it is mine :)
Now the boy usually does a fairly good job of moderating my more bonkers ideas, but in this case all I can say is HA! FAIL!!! He actually quite likes the clock, and has complained that over time I have somewhat skewed his idea of ridiculousness. This can only be a good thing, no...?
I have also sneakily purchased some skull fabric, with which I shall be making a pouffe. Watch out for another of my inexpert experiments in making stuff soon.
