I've been making a little list (which is really not so little) of things we need for our home. Not the big things like furniture, which has a separate and way-too-long-unless-we-win-lotto list, but the little things.
Like a full length mirror for behind our bedroom door. Over the door hooks for my dressing gown, a square pillow for the European pillowcase I bought for the bed in the guest room, bedside lamps for our room and the guest room, a bamboo ladder to prop up in the walk in robe for scarves and belts, a clock for the kitchen.
The previous owners left their old clock here. It is bronze rimmed and pale gold coloured face. On a brick background. We are not fans of it. But where do you find a nice clock?
I turned to etsy and felt (madeit was sadly lacking) for help because all I can find in the shops are basic plain or over the top fancy ones. I want a nice one, maybe in blue but perhaps in white seeing as a search for blue didn't turn up very much at all, that is not too ostentatious or too boring. A bit of a feature for our bricked kitchen walls.
My favourite is the tiny scalloped duck egg blue one which at 18cm is a bit small for the kitchen but is just perfect for the craft room... (pencils in 'clock for the craft room' on home bits and pieces shopping list)
Have you got a lovely clock? Where did you get it from? Do you have any really good clock shopping links or locations for me?
