Mary Englebreit Inspired Grandfather Clock in quarter scale

I love anything Mary Englebreit and try to incorporate her design into many of my miniatures.    Debbie Young, Young at Heart, designed this grandfather clock project and I was lucky enough to get one of them.    It has a real clock in the top and 4 wonderful little rooms.  

I still need to add a few more things on the wall and do a couple of rugs for it, but basically it is done and I'm loving it.
