A few of my favorite images on the Pinterest boards are of vintage clocks. I LOVE clocks. The bigger and bolder and older the better.
Since I am always so stressed for time, and oftentimes so immersed in my work that I forget the hour, clocks keep me in line and on time. (Except for the time when I was so busy sparkling up my holiday wreaths that I actually forgot to go to work!) Since I don’t wear a watch, I depend on my cell phone to tick away the hours and notify me when my time is up.
But old timepieces, worn and shabby and oftentimes not even keeping time, evoke memories of simpler times passed by.
Which is why, I believe, they are so appealing in today’s interior designs. No matter what the style, they blend perfectly and give a timeless presence.
You will find vintage and shabby clocks on the pages of Pottery Barn
and, of course, on Country Design Home! These are two of my favorites- this Paris clock sits in the alcove in my kitchen
and this one graces the glass and mirror bookshelves in my living room. Both are from, where else, Home Goods : )
But my favorite vintage clock is this little beauty. Sooo love this! (Anyone happen to know where I can find one of these?)
So it’s about time for me to get back to work! One more week til the Vintage Thymes September Market– aptly name Vintage Thymes. To see more beautifully timeless images, click here. Have a great time this weekend everyone! Susan
