My wife and I were driving home the other day when we saw a HUGE grandfather clock on the side of the road, in front of our neighbors house [he’s a woodworker]. It had a sign on it that read: FREE.
So I pulled over and grabbed it…darn thing was really heavy. It’s got all the chimes and pendulum but no movement - it even has the original paperwork - anyway we brought it home and now it is sitting here with nothing to do.
We have a 9-month old son - and were thinking of putting it in the playroom and bracketing it to the wall and making it something he can interact with - I dunno for now we could put a mouse on it and make it into a nursery rhyme theme. Eventually he could play G.I.Joes in it or something…
Or I was thinking of putting a plant in it as the top and front are glass behind wood - could be a cool terrarium… Any other ideas?
