'A Place in Time'

So excited about this!



I have an overabundance of clocks sitting around here (collecting dust) so I decided to take action. I took one apart to salvage the face and then thought of the idea of using the clock body as a frame for a photograph. I also have a quite a few souvenir photograph postcards laying around and decided they too should get in on the action.


So after puttering and creating I came up with the name for this new line - 'A Place in Time'.


I'll be adding these to the site very soon!


P.S. I will also be doing a more specific line called 'A Face in Time'. Just simply email me a loved one's photo and I can create a one of a kind clock frame just for you.

Hi Joy,

What a cool idea! You had asked about the watch faces on my blog and for now I'm keeping them. I just love the way they look all together. Thanks for stopping by and asking though. Best wishes,

Lisa

Hi! I have you listed under my "blogs I love"....I love your blog even more now!! I too found some old clocks and contiplated last night what I was going to do with them! I love your idea! I decided to decorate mine with rub on wording like "moments" and "dream" and then I applied a large flower in the middle where the hands use to be. I also glued on leaves to look like the hands of the clock. Thank you for a wonderful blog!

They are really quite stunning...and so creative!!!

Laume said...

I kept an old clock for exactly this same purpose, although unlike you, I haven't gotten around to doing anything with it yet. I love old clocks, just the way they are with their faces intact, but this is also a great idea. Your refashioned alarms are far from alarming, they're very soothing. Lovely.

Now I am excited. a whole ball of wax for old non working clocks.
keep up the good work.
