Grandfather Clocks

Do you or have you ever owned a Grandfather Clock? I never have, but I really love them and would love to own one day. I remember as a child going over to my Great Aunts house and she had one in her home, it was always so beautiful and made the most amazing sounds when it chimed. There's always a mystic almost with Grandfather Clocks, childhood movies that portray that they have a 'secret passageway' inside, the look, the allure that they have, they're a timeless classic that can be put in any home.

You don't see them a lot these days in most modern homes, which is a shame, but I believe that once I have a larger home and have the room, a Grandfather Clock will be one of the first things you see when you walk through the door, even if my home is modern. I think it's great to introduce children to Grandfather Clocks, and I know my kids haven't been introduced to one yet. It's just something that you remember from your childhood, something that just seems special. Finding great looking contemporary Grandfather Clocks is so easy today, and it still gives that timeless look to your home, something like a Howard Miller Cosmopolitan Grandfather Clock is something that's my style and I could easily see in my home, the sleek lines, the contemporary design, but still the ageless definition of a Grandfather Clock with a new look, I am in love!

I'd love to give the memories I once had to my children so they can have their own special memories of a Grandfather Clock and the home that it was in. Do you have a special memory with one? Feel free to share it here and let us read about it.
