Tick tock

tick tock......... 

 earlier this week I got a surprise package in the post from a friend in Holland....not everyones idea of a fun thing...a rat trap..... but I love it.......thanks Hermine:)
CLICK HERE to see what Hermine did with hers:)
I couldn't wait to play with it.

 My first thought was to have someone or something trapped in the trap but it was pointed out that that was a bit gruesome and while I'm not averse to a bit of gruesome I decided to go down a friendlier route this time;)
While I was still thinking on the being trapped idea and what I could have trapped my thoughts went to............ 
I loved that story when I was small and wished they were real....in fact I remember actually looking for them! 
I was going to have one caught in my trap......but decided against and just used the trap for my Borrower to sit on.

 When I researched the Borrowers story......it's been a while since I read it.....I was reminded that the Borrower family name was clock..................so......meet
 ARRIETY CLOCK 
 who had a close encounter with a rat trap!

Oh my, how I loved those stories, needle swords and matchbox beds, magical. Love your piece, especially the texty details like her hair! Every detail is fab.
