welcome 2011...

I like clocks. I like dishes. I like candles. I like cozy.










A year ago all these clocks were set to the proper time. I may like clocks but perhaps it is time to get some that keep time better than these!


Happy New Year!

What a lovely table to ring in the New Year~ All your clocks & candles do make it cozy, especially with the candle light reflections :-)

Dearest Barbara,

Lovely post; so warm and cozy looking. It would be great if clocks would slow down somewhat so we can enjoy our days a bit longer!!!
That's my ONLY problem; TIME...

Love,

I agree, this is soooo warm and cozy. All of the clocks make such a fun centerpiece. I like that they are all a little off, just like most of my guests, some come a little too early and some a little too late!

What adorable plates. They are so unusual and perfect. I like that they are each a little unique too. Happy 2011.

Hi...I absolutely love your clock face dishes...oh so fun. I think every clock in my house shows a different time, and some are completely broken, but I love them so much (is that bad?)
Your table was fabulous!!!
