Steampunk Clock Fairy

This week's theme at the Tag Tuesday Challenge blog is CLOCKS. As I said on that blog, I think all this Halloween talk etc seems to bring out the darker side of me. When I thought of clocks, I thought of big old drafty English or Scottish mansions and castles with antique grandfather clocks, which chimed at the oddest times, or stopped working for a while and then got going again, missing pendulums and wind up keys etc. And responsible for all this is, of course, the CLOCK FAIRY, playing nasty little tricks.

This is her, don't wear your watch or sit near a clock while you are looking at her, can't be too careful where fairies are concerned -







I also needed to catch up with a couple of inchies, last week's WALL and this week's WIND inchies.

This is a moss covered field stone WALL -

and the WIND God blowing storm clouds across the sky -

Hello dear Lizzie, I think your naughty clock fairy had been here some days ago and made our kitchen clock run slow, before she appeared on your super cool and very creative tag.
Big hugs to you,
Julia

I Love her! She is so unique....and a freaky fairy!
I usually decorate my home in the fall with harvest and fall decorations and keep my Halloween Spookiness at a minimum, but she is fun!
Beautiful, Liz!! You always do such a great job....
