A few pretty things ~

Photo courtesy The Plum Tree

I wanted to show you the most wonderful clock that I bought Dennis for Christmas. I found it at The Plum Tree and just knew he'd love it! We're going to rewire it but what's so neat is that the little fireplace has a light and a cylinder that turns to give it a flickering effect ~

Just a little cloche on our buffet with a found nest and a tiny bird ~ and one lone earring that I love....

A few images that I received from Sharon that I scanned to share with you!!

We are hunkered down here in Georgia and are quite unfamiliar with the low temps....I know that if you're experiencing subzero weather you don't have much sympathy though!! And I can hardly blame you :) ~

Wishing you a great Friday dear friends!
xxoo, Dawn

Hi Dawn, The clock is great! Can't wait to see it all lit up! And I love the bird's nest, it reminds me, Spring will be here soon. And on day's this cold, it can't be soon enough! Stay warm. BLESSINGS, Deborah

Hi Dawn...gorgeous treasures and adorable images! It is sooooo cold up here in Michigan...well below zero wind chill. I think yesterday it was in mid 20's below and today is supposed to be even colder. BRRRRRRRRR

Lori said...

Hi Dawn
thanks for the images and a look at the clock - very cute. It is a whopping 6 degrees here in Southern Maine this morning and was -14 when we got up! I have been diligently working to keep the birds well stocked with food and trying to provide access to water. They are so hungry! I am amazed at how they can deal with the cold they are doing alot of sitting on their feet and "fluffing" up to stay warm. My coon cats have even taken to sleeping curled up together on a chair - hard to imagine they could be cold with all that fur!
Have a great Friday.

Good Morning Miss Dawn!!

Thank you for the scanned images!!

Are those old parlor clocks just sooo neat!!:) I love to go into an elderly persons home and find one still ticking away!! There is always a story that goes with them that is as wonderous as the clock themselves!
