I recently stopped at the Santa Monica Antique Mart and could not escape the fact that
there were clocks ticking everywhere. Maybe I noticed it so much because I am aware
of the time change happening this weekend. We are going to set our clocks forward
one hour at two o’clock Sunday morning...but I’ll probably do it before I go to bed on
I think the picture above of the clock table is quite fun and unique. But maybe we don’t
need to be that aware of time passing so quickly. I would constantly be thinking of all
the things I had to get done before the end of the day.
Here are some other clocks that were making their tick tock voices heard today. I
was not always able to get a full length picture because the antique store has so many
wonderful things and often there just wasn't enough space to stand back and take a
full picture. I know the overhead lighting causes a reflection on some of the faces in
the pictures, but when you are in the store it is perfect.
Here is a better look at this clock's sweet face...
This table clock is one of my favorites...
If you collect plates...
A sweet little Swedish clock. She has a darling face and a little drawer...
A little more fancy...
A pretty little cloisenne clock
I wonder where this octagon clock lived before? Maybe a school or market...
I believe they said this one was Danish...
There are so many styles of clocks. It would be fun to know where each of these clocks
has lived before. These are just a few of the many clocks in the store.
I love the fact that we are setting our clocks forward. That means more daylight hours
and spring is definitely around the corner.
PS...I apologize for taking so long in doing a new post. I have been working hard on
decorating a beach house for someone and it has been taking all of my time. The good
news is, he's very please with the beach house...so far!
