I hope you all had a safe and fun New Year's Celebration!
We had a nice time with our boys and their girlfriends on NYE.
I wanted to share how I brought in the New Year.....
The title of this post is a clue
and it has nothing to do with anything crafty.
To start off I should tell you we have a very long living room with one wall (over the couch) unbroken by doors, windows, etc. It's always been a challenge finding something to fill in that space and look nice. For the last several years as a family we've been debating on what theme we wanted to go with. We never did really arrive upon anything we could all agree on so I decided that I wanted a wall of clocks!
It's taken me several years to collect enough clocks to actually do so (I've gotten clocks for the last 3 years from Mom and Dad for Christmas) BUT this year I finally had enough!!! I hung them all up on New Years Eve during the day when my family was doing their thing.
This is my steampunk-ish clock I found at Tuesday Morning a year ago...
This is my tag clock I got from Mom & Dad this year...It's about 3' across.
A very classy musical clock - plays 18 different tunes on the hour (6 of them Christmas). This is the clock I got from Mom & Dad last year. It's got crystals on the pendulum that sparkle and glitter when the sun hits it as it swings.
A vintage looking "compass" clock....
I love metal clocks - LOVE the copper in this one....
and the patina on this metal clock is awesome don't ya think? It's about 3 1/2' across. It's the one Mom and Dad got me 3 years ago.
I still need a few smaller sized clocks to fill in a few spaces but I love how it looks so far.
My family thinks I'm nuts but I don't care, I love em!
I should note that the clocks with second hands make a nice ticking sound.
I like it ~ I find it very relaxing but Dh isn't so sure about it.
He hasn't complained though which is a good sign ;)
So, this is how I rang in the new year....
