Scottish Fairy Tales...

I know the parcel says Royal Mail, but I think it was really delivered by gypsies. Or maybe transatlantic-flying owls...


I extracted a carefully padded and packaged object...


And look! The most gorgeously handmade and painted clock - worthy of a old-world fairy tale - by the inimitable Rima. She, and her amazing, truly distinctive, moody and evocative artwork, seem out of a fairy tale themselves.


Understandably, I *adore* this stunning piece of workmanship which is now gracing my studio wall where I can see it every time I glance up.

Do visit Rima's gorgeous site Once Upon a Clock for more glimpses into her wonderful world.

That is a stunning piece of craftsmanship.

Oh wow, thank you Tara...
I am so relieved it got there safe and sound.
Lovely photos on red velvet in the sunlight :)
I feel like this clock has gone on such a loooong journey...
Happy that you have the first once upon o'clock...
Hope it keeps ticking for centuries!
And if the parcel was delivered by gypsies.. maybe that explains the wait, perhaps they got diverted on the way :)
Enjoy it x

It is a thing of beauty. Hope I can see it, and your chickens, the next time I come over to befuddle and annoy you. :)

Rima makes such whimsical art, yet with a practicality to it;just like craftsmen of old.(As opposed to churned out in smoky factories!)

A lovely working artwork, just the thing to keep time while you work on your art.
