Grandfather clock finished.

First a warm welcome to the new followers. 

Upstairs my own house is a mess. The garden is in a perfect state. Let the sun shine !

My dollhouse is duck taped and waiting for my hobby space to be ready. Meanwhile I still want to produce things to put into the doll house. 

The clock is finished and I'm proud to present it.

You can leave the door open so you can see the regulator and the weights.

When you look sharp you can see the little knob that's on the middle of the door for opening.

It is unfortunate that the clock does not really work. 
We had to decide what was the perfect time for the pointers. So Frans glued them on this time. It's not a special time but we thought this was the  best location.

With this clock I will be able to produce a real working clock some day.

  1. Hello Dorien,
    It is a beautiful clock. You have done a fantastic job on it. The finish really is exquisite and the construction is very well done. Bravo!
    Big hug,

    1. Thank you Giac for your lovely words.
      That Mini Mundus kit was a great buy. Especially when you're a starter. You learn a lot about the construction of this little thing.
      Hugs Dorien

  2. Your clock is beautiful Dorien, I love the colour of the wood, it is so rich.

  3. Hallo Dorien, ik vind je klok erg mooi geworden. En als je niet beter weet, zou je denken dat je 'm kon horen tikken ;). Hij is realistisch om te zien en de houtkleur is erg warm. Je kunt trots zijn op je werk, hoor :D!!
    Liefs, Ilona

    1. Dankjewel Ilona.
      Ik houd van kersenhout, mahony en wortelnoten hout. Dat probeer ik in het poppenhuis ook na te bootsen.
      Groetjes Dorien

  4. Hoi Dorien, de klok is super geworden, wat zal-ie mooi staan als je huis straks helemaal af is.

  5. what a great clock, my gardening is not done so I will have to put mini's aside for a while..I have flowers to plant in the front.


    PS I hope you get your work space soon

  6. Dear Marisa,
    Good luck with your flowers and I hope the weather gets better soon. Working in the garden with this cold temperature and all the rain isn't pleasant.
    Hugs Dorien

  7. Hola Marisa
    Precioso reloj.
    Buena suerte con tus flores.
    besitos ascension

  8. Hello Dorien! I have a real soft spot for clocks of any kind and only just today found some teeny tiny clock face buttons to use for an up-coming project, and so your grandfather clock is really impressing me! I am so glad that you got this kit clock for your Garfield because this clock needs the kind of space that the Garfield has! One of my dearest friends, Fatima, also has the Garfield and so I have had a opportunity to see just how much space you also will have to fill, but the Garfield has a hallway and that is not always available in a doll's house big or small. Your grandfather clock will be Perfect for your house and the quality of your finishing work on the clock is something for you to be really proud of!


  9. Hello Elizabeth and welcome to my blog. I'm glad to read that the clock fits in the house. At the moment I'm not able to do anything because I'm to tired. I only follow blogs.
    Thanks for your sweet reply.
    Hugs Dorien

  10. Hoi Dorien, wat een prachtige klok heb je gemaakt zeg !!!
    bedankt voor je lieve reactie op mijn Blog, ik gebruik Aleen`s true snow als slagroom op de gums :)

    Lieve groetjes Mieke

    1. Dankjewel Mieke voor je antwoord!
      Daar heb ik nog nooit van gehoord. Zal eens een keer gaan googlen. Ik gebruikte vulmiddel op mijn kurk als slagroom.
      Groetjes Dorien
