Tick Tock goes the clock....

As time goes on, our homes tend to look more and more modern. Gone are the old antique styles and great quality that we once remember in our grandparents homes. One of the most timeless pieces I think though has to be a beautiful grandfather clock.

I remember many visits to my great aunts home, and the beautiful grandfather clock that once stood there, and the loud 'gong' it would make as the time flew by. I almost miss the sound of that clock, and can remember it clearly from my childhood days.

Today you are less likely to see these great beautiful clocks in people's homes, it's almost sad that it's an experience our children will never have unless it's in a story book or fairytale of some sort. The room grandfather clock take up, the art and of it is almost lost, but there is hope, perhaps a more modern grandfather clock is what's needed, it is possible to find them. They give homes that 'homey' feel no matter if it's an antique looking or modern clock, the sounds are unmistakable and their appearance is always memorable.

Even a simple wall or mantel clock can be exquisite and beautiful, and even memorable. For some reason I remember the clocks in my grandmother's home and even today strive to find something similar in looks so that I can preserve those memories. Clocks don't just tell us the time, sometimes they are the memories of our times as well.

My oh my, these are simply adorable! I fell in love with the Cream Ear Flap Beanie with Red Lovely Fabric Flower Clip in size 6-12 mo., I'd love to see my little girl wear this.

I totally agree! For a couple years I have been wanting a huge clock for over our mantle. Hubby got it for me for my birthday this year and it's such a beautiful piece and I just love it. My grandmother had a beautiful grandfather clock. I remember it waking us way before we wanted it to with it's morning cuckoos lol.
