|Custom Squirrel Cuckoo Clock by Betty Jo|
Liz had come up to Ballarat to collect the offcuts from my gorgeous red marmoleum floor and I had an idea that perhaps Liz could weave her lino magic and turn a piece of my floor off cut into a squirrel themed cuckoo clock for the shop.
Little did I know that whilst Liz was in the shop she bought some vintage buttons and wooden strawberry beads which she also planned to incorporate into my custom clock.
Whilst I was down in Melbourne recently doing some markets - I had the opportunity to stop in at Markit at Federation Square - where Liz presented me with the clock. It was LOVE at first site!
Absolutely and categorically the finest and most beautiful squirrel clock I have ever seen! Isn't it just fantastic! I particularly love the acorns, the hand dyed doily and the tiny green buttons too.
I couldn't wait to get back to the shop to hang it and as Liz had noticed whilst she was here - I even already had a nail in the bricks ready to hang it on - it was mean't to be.
When it comes to upcycling lino - Liz is the queen and so amazingly creative - make sure you check out Liz's shop Gleaners and her other blogs and FB here & here.
