I am the Mother of a Teenager!

Time sure does fly...

Saturday marked a milestone for my son Jack - he turned 13! We had a lovely warm, sunny day and he celebrated with some friends. Hubby provided the entertainment by letting them jump out of his construction lift into the pool. They loved it! (me, notsomuch)

Speaking of hubby, he had to unload the concrete clam shell out of the back of his truck so he just stick it into our front flower bed. I want it moved but have a feeling that in 5 years it will still be in this exact place!

Made some more of my 'Place in Time' clocks....I just love the unique design of this old metal one...

This one features a photograph of the 'Great Hall' in Warrick Castle - a very British Colonial look...

And finally another Champs Elysees photo with the Arch de Triomphe in the background.

It's funny because each clock is so different. Some can be easy to transform, others can be a nightmare! I always trying to leave the inner workings inside because I like the weight they provide and sometimes they will still 'tick' which I think is neat.

Hope you all had a lovely weekend!

Happy Birthday to your sweet son!
(Though I think he'd hate being called "sweet"!). :)
Looks like you all had a great time and your yard is just gorgeous!
Aren't these great days? Just wonderful.

congrats to your son. And for you, the adventure is just beginning.
Love the clocks. I have an empty one that I keep meaning to try your idea on, I just haven't found the right picture. My clock has no glass either, it's an empty shell.
Love your french stamp. I found the stamps online, but can't bring myself to put down 30.00 for them, just yet.

I absolutely love these clocks. I can't bring myself to tear my clocks apart yet, but one of these days I will because they are so cute!
