Set it and forget it ? ....:)

I bought this clock below, forever ago. I don't know why. I seriously don't. Maybe I bought it on the same delusional shopping trip that I bought my hideous red washer and dryer??? Ugh. I could kick myself sometimes. I mean for heaven's sake this clock has stinkin crabs or lobsters or some kind of crustaceans all over it? And I totally don't get the Paris France connection. But whatevs.
I took the clock and hung it outside ( so I wouldn't have that constant reminder of shopping gone bad I guess?) and had NO IDEA that it would... Number 1- survive the elements, and Number 2- that it would turn out like THIS!!! God bless 4 years of sunshine right??!!


I was admiring my hydrangeas (that are INCREDIBLE here in DP) and happened to turn and see the ole gal looking all lovely and sun bleached, still hanging there in that same spot she had been for over 4 years:) And suddenly? I loved her:)


I put a new battery in and it works!! I hung it in my bathroom yesterday:) OK, the hubby hung it.


I appologized for all the years of neglect- we're all cool now:)

  2. What a cute post! I can see why you questioned buying it in the first place, but now glad you did. It looks great in your bathroom. I once had an oversized clock that I wanted to change the look of and just painted over it. So, if you ever run into that problem again, you could try that method too! ha!

  3. Yes, I've been on a few of those delusional shopping trips myself but none have turned out with an ending like yours! Love the natural lighter look of your clock! It looks perfect in your bathroom :o)

  4. I just love your posts! Your Dana Point cottage looks so darling, have you ever posted a tour of that house on your blog? I have only been following for a few months so I may have missed it, I would love to see a tour of the rest of the cottage! Loved the laundry room post!

  5. Apparently I have nothing better to do ~
    Crustacean picture + French word (Coquille) = a french dish where seafood is served in a scallop shell. I'm sure you'll be able to sleep better tonight now that you have that information. (Lol) Just knowing that you too have delusional shopping trips will help me sleep better tonight. YES!!! --- I'm normal! Love the clock!

  10. I love the clock's self makeover! I have a floral clock stored away that I have regretted purchasing - maybe I should hang it outside. Seriously!
