Vintage Family Watch

I thought I'd share one of my favourite things (so I can enter it into the next Sunday Stampers Challenge as well because the challenge is Reasons To be Cheerful!!) I altered a wooden box to display an antique watch that belonged to my dads great uncle.

I covered the box with some old sheet music and Tim Holtz tissue tape, then inked it with Walnut Stain, Vintage Photo and a few sprays.The small B&W clocks are metal which I linked to an old watch housing with chain.The clock in the housing is wooden.Then I added a few metal embellishments.
Inside the box is lined with velvet and in the left side are some more wooden clock faces. The actual pocket watch is pinned to the velvet with Tim Holtzs pin things( can't remember what they are called...Alzheimer's kicking in!!).I don't know if you can see from the photo, but the metal disk on the end of the chain has the Lords Prayer engraved on it.
