Something a little bit different ~

I've been eyeing this clock for awhile now. It's been in my artroom, not working, with old wiring and just clicking away and the hands never moving so . . . in my repurpose, recycle celebration of Earth day, I've turned this has-been of a clock into a sweet piece of artwork ~

I created a new insides and covered them with antique sheet music, vintage net lace, tiny champagne pearls and the centerpiece is this precious little girl ~ all with the message to "Cherish the simple things" What's so neat is that it's housed under the prettiest bubble glass. Isn't it wonderful how something so ordinary and functional can transform into a one-of-a-kind piece of art!!


xxoo, Dawn
