My aunt has had a cuckoo clock for as long as I can remember. When I was a child, she used to pick me up and hold me right next to the clock so I could get a better look at the little bird when he popped out to say "cuckoo!"
Now, I am 26 years old and still have a fondness for these unusual timepieces.
What's great is that they make more modernized versions, so that I can actually buy one to put in our contemporary apartment!
Unfortunately, I'm having trouble finding one that fits both our color scheme and our budget.
Here's a list of what I've found so far:
Utopia Wall Cuckoo - $48 - ambientweather.com
The pink cuckoo from wakeupfrankie.com is clearly our best bet, but I'm afraid my husband would throw me off the balcony if I put a bright pink clock on our living room wall. Do you think painting is an option? If not, does anyone where where I could find a contemporary cuckoo clock for less than $50? Ideas would be greatly appreciated! :)
