thrifted :: cuckoo clock

5_thursday

one of my most favorite thrifted items this summer has been this cuckoo clock. found it at a garage sale and asked the elderly lady if she knew if it worked. she said that the man that fixed it for them had passed away. i took that to mean that it needed some work. i brought it home and started it up. it worked, but chimed at the wrong times. with a little internet research i fixed my little find all by myself in no time flat! now if i can only get my husband to be as crazy about it as i am!

So cute. Do the chimes annoy the heck out of you though???
I'm still kicking myself for not keeping one of my Grandpa's cuckoo clocks when we cleaned out his house a couple years ago. Sigh.
