~ time ~

I've always just loved clocks...
and I have posted about most of these special ones before.

they don't even have to work.
Any time I see one of these little crystal-like clocks,
working or not, I buy it.
These little blingy clocks just set my feet a'dancin'.


When I saw this OLD WORLD CLOCK on the shelf at HOBBY LOBBY last winter,
I grabbed it so fast, I almost dropped it.
Only one there, and it didn't matter to me that they probably had
1500 cases of them in the storeroom....
 I wasn't about to let THIS one get away.
(i'm paranoid like that...)


I also love  clock faces...
they don't even have to be attached to a clock.  :>)

When I show Mr. Sweet a new, old clock face I just bought,
he smiles and turns his head but not quick enuf for me to miss
his eyes rolling....:)
(Shadows beneath the tray of clocks)
...this little tiny clock is a BRIGHTON
and I won it as a door prize a couple years ago..
It is so adorable....and I usually don't care for miniatures of any kind.
This is just so cute, tho......oh, and it works like a charm.


I have one floor clock that I bought at HOBBY LOBBY a few years ago
black....OF COURSE. :)
It's battery operated and has such a pretty face.

 My mother's beautiful key wind, vintage mantel clock.
It was originally black and she painted it white with brass trim.
I've never even thought of repainting it.
(Shadow Shot beneath the clock...heh heh....)


 I've always been so afraid of losing THE KEY,
so just short of  wearing it around my neck,
I keep it on jute string, hanging with other vintage brass keys from a lamp...
this way I can keep my eyes on it all the time.

We have lots of clocks around....all the rest are pretty much
 run of the mill clocks.

....and....I can't even TELL you how much I've always loved
HOUR GLASSES...


take a look at this beauty...
 I found this one the other day at STEINMART
and because it had 2 little rubber feet missing,
I got it for 50% off.

and it was already BLACK...my choice of color.
With the white sand, it all fit right in with my dining room decor colors,
I love it and every time I walk by it,
I turn it over and watch the sand softly fall thru to the bottom....

Here a Bed..There a Bed....

posted her new spring bedding on the very same day I was working on a post
of changing out MY bedding...


I was shocked to see that my bedding, while not nearly as lovely...
and certainly not famous brands,
was very similar in colors to hers.

After seeing her prettiness, I am going to start watching for pretty pillowcases
You can click HERE to see how she does such a classy job on budget bedding.


Here's the starting of my spring bed...
it's pretty much the same as last spring and summer....
very casual...
very comfy..
my mother always had the most comfortable ...and comforting beds
and MY bed is a lot like it was when I was a kid.


Everything is soft and durable...
easy to climb into for a nice, long nap EVERY day.


I haven't bought anything new for this year..
same wall hanging and quilt...


On one bedside table..a favorite read....


always a tiny bit of black and white sprinkled around...

(I've already changed out those flowers for the lime green hydrangeas...
fickle, I tell you.)


I just can't decorate....or live... without a touch of whimsy...
just can't have all serious stuff...
really SERIOUS stuff just doesn't make me feel like smiling.



I bought this book at a thrift store not long ago...

Since EVERYBODY LOVES RAYMOND is one of my favorite re-runs now, I thought I'd like this book about DORIS ROBERTS...

...haven't started reading it yet but

it's on my bedside table on the other side of the bed...
and next in line to read.



Did you notice that cute little clock...

tiny...

charming...

one of those little "tuck in" pieces..

love it to pieces....

I bought this pillow last summer and I just LUV to snuggle up against it
and watch tv at night.
************************************
I can change looks up a bit with these neutral colors..
*


I like using this monogrammed pillowcase sometimes...

and it being black and white, I can just add it to the 
cream and white bedding and ....
it works.


I have several different pillows with turquoise in them...
I am SOOO  addicted to PILLOWS...
just love 'em and have them stuck everywhere...
under beds...in closets...drawers...
it's pitiful.


and Stacy girl painted the vintage wooden bed tray for me.
Isn't it adorable.?

I use it ALL THE TIME .....


I think it's lots of fun to throw in different things in a room every now and then....
keeps things fresh...
colorful ....
alive....



Leaving you with
A FOOD REVIEW....


This may not be new to you...
but I just discovered it this very week...
and I tell you...
I AM IN LUV FOREVER.

I'll tell you a little later how I used it in a recipe
and it nearly knocked our sox right off our feet...

FOODIE FRIDAY and EVERYTHING ELSE
