Clock House for Tinkerbelle and Two Awards!

A House made for a Tinker...


(15 inches)

A robust rumor was circulating in elven circles that Tinkerbelle desired a special commission for Peter Pan. A marvelous custom made slipper to wear during the New Year Welcome. However, the faerie herself had not yet made her appearance at the Cobbler's Shop to confirm this rumor and the clock was ticking away the time needed to build such an important shoe.

Princess Everllie decided to send a messenger to Tink's home to find out whether this rumor was true!


No one in the elven realm knew exactly where she lived,

but it was assumed that a Tinker faerie would likely live
in a clock house.

When the Cobbler's messenger came upon two

remarkable cuckoo clock houses,

she was sure one of them must be the abode

of the most famous Tinker faerie of all.


Timidly the shoemaker knocked at each door,

with no success.

Evidently no one was at either home.

Or...was there...


(12 inches)

Somehow the messenger faerie felt that someone was watching her from near the tower.


Yet there was no sound to welcome her timid knockings.


The tiny messenger flew back home straight away

carrying no news.

The Cobbler and his staff would just have to wait...


Which clock do you think a Tinker faerie would call home?

(note...these two small fantasy homes in altered cuckoo clock cases are a stupendously wonderful custom request from a dear friend who lives in the land where cuckoo clocks were born. A tiny Tinkerbelle is almost complete and is quite excited to see which home will be chosen to be hers...)
