I’m obsessed with Clocks…

For someone who’s notorious for running late, that’s a mouthful!

But seriously, I am! So ask me how did this obsession start? Well, I’ve been on the hunt for everything and anything vintage. In designing the new house, I have discovered that my style is country vintage. Which brings up a real-life issue I’m encountering these days…the rents don’t like anything which predates their times and I don’t like anything invented during mine. So now we’re in a dilemma to find furniture belonging to a mutually-exclusive century and well…

Anyways, we’ll save this topic for another day…

…back to clocks. So…during my numerous trips to flea markets and antique stores and all-nighter reads through several vintage magazines, I noticed how a simple but unique clock can add a creative flare to the room at a minimal price. Sometimes to bring excitement back into a boring room, you only need to make minor adjustments. All you need is an imagination…and a subscription to Better Homes & Garden! We always think big! Like buying a huge piece of furniture or changing up the entire room. Sometimes a fresh paint, a new lighting fixture, fresh flowers, new cushions, updated curtains, or a wall hanging can revive a dull room.

And that’s how clocks grabbed my attention! Just like that!

So I took upon myself to hunt for unique clocks for the house, something which could translate into a signature focal point of the room.

Back in February I posted about a recycled turntable clock I purchased from Etsy seller Pixelthis. Let me tell you what a conversation piece this clock has managed to become! Almost everyone who visited my place asked me how I got my hands on it. Many studied it carefully for several minutes admiring it’s impeccable finish. I feel proud of myself just thinking about it!

So here are some clocks I figured may grab your attention. Trust me, there are enough in this post to cater to everyone’s taste!

Or…how about…(drum roll please!) buy these as gifts for your friends!!! These clocks will make awesome gifts!!! Your friends will love you for it…you could be the new hero in their lives!
