Springing Forward With a Thrift Shop Clock



I was in a local thrift shop recently and I saw this little clock for one dollar.  I didn't 
need another clock because I have them in every room.  You might say I am
clock obsessed.  Schoolhouse, carriage, moonbeam, grandfather.  You name it,
I have it.  So why this cheap little one?




Because I could turn it into this.  I painted it blue and added some naive little flowers.





Somehow the soul of that little clock just needed to shine.
Don't forget to set your clocks ahead one hour tonight so that we all
can enjoy one additional hour of daylight tomorrow evening!

and

Take a long nap today Bentley because we will be losing an hour
of sleep tonight.

Hugs,
Susan and Bentley

  11. I love what you did with the little clock, it looks very Swedish now. I love to collect clocks, too. I love to hear the tick-tock. Somehow it is very soothing. I guess I am like a puppy that way. Have a great Sunday.
