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!
