"TIME" For A New Vignette!

Sometimes I really struggle with a big wall.
When I changed out the wreath above the armoire for the picture that you see,
the delicate toile and botanical rose prints were no longer working.

I knew I needed something that would be a single statement.... How about a big CLOCK?!
I started looking and man-o-man! Can they be expensive! A clock like this can be close to $100!
Well! You know what is coming next.... I was in TJ Maxx and saw this one for $25. That is a great deal but the arms were bent! Not beyond repair, mind you, bent they needed a little work.
Well I asked and the manager said that she could take 50% off but it would have to be "as is".
I said... "Well... I'll take it!"


The little shabby shelf I got for $24 bucks at Home Goods. So over all....
I LOVE IT!
Some times it just works out that way.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend. It is going to be gorgeous here. So I plan on enjoying it. What about you?

It's beautiful! The candlesticks are just my favorite, though. One sweet little B&B my hubby and I love has a HUGE clock--without hands--on the wall. No better way for time to stand still! :)It looks a LOT like your clock. GREAT BUY!
Happy weekend!
