This is my original Black Forest Cuckoo Clock. It is a limited edition and I just love it! Before we left for our vacation last month, I told dh that if there is only one souvenir that I can buy in our Europe trip, it's a cuckoo clock from the Black Forest of Germany. Why am I obsessed with getting this? Cuckoo clocks remind me of the house I grew up in. We had a Black Forest cuckoo clock in the living room which my parents brought back from their vacation in Germany.
So on our last day in Europe, we bought this clock from a specialty store in Munich and had it shipped home. What do you think? Isn't it cute? The cuckoo comes out of the door on the top every full hour and half-hour, the man's arm holding the beer stein goes up as well. The cute wooden dolls turn around along with the water wheel while the music plays. It plays two different music, one is the song Edelweiss. Now, when I'm working around the house, I get an idea on what time it is without looking at the clock, I just count the cuckoo sound!
