Update beach cabin and more

I've been working on a door for the beach cabin.
And because E-beertje wanted to try out his new cabin...
we've put his garden bench on the porch...
I will have to make a nice chair for him soon!!!
The doors can be opened...of course
And I have put the glass in the windows and doors!
It just needs a roof
and then E-beertje can sit nice and comfy in his beach cabin...
well....when I've made him some furniture that is

Thursday I reveived a lovely gift from my friend Jolande,
a miniature of the astronomical clock from Prague.

This is the real one!!
The Prague Astronomical Clock
The clock was first installed in 1410,
making it the third-oldest astronomical clock in the world and the only one still working.
The clock mechanism itself is composed of three main components:
the astronomical dial, a clockwork  and a calendar dial with medallions representing the months.
The astronomical dial has a background that represents the standing Earth and sky, and surrounding it operate four main moving components: the zodiacal ring, an outer rotating ring, an icon representing the Sun, and an icon representing the Moon.

This is how it looked when I got the miniature!
Jolande said I could glue something over the word PRAHA...
but I tried something else!

This is how it looked when I was finished with it! 

And this is where I put it...
in the tower!
Thank you Jolande...I'm really happy with it!!!

Prachtige make-over van de klok! Hij staat geweldig in de toren, precies ervoor gemaakt ;)

De beach cabin deuren vind ik erg mooi geworden, heb je die helemaal zelf gemaakt?

Liefs Jollie

That clock is quite an eye-catcher... fantastic gift and a great makeover. And your beachhouse looks already so cosy, no wonder E-beertje made himself comfortable. Did he read a decoration magazine to decide which furniture and decor he wants you to make for his cabin? ;O)
