Bargain time!!



Literally! Now, I know this clock would never make the Antiques Roadshow in a zillion years, but I couldn't resist it in the shop at Beaulieu yesterday. Could you? I saw it, pondered on it and went off to think about it. After all, I don't really need a new clock, but.............in the end I came to the conclusion that I would get home and say "I wish I had...............", so, after a long knitting-fuelled think, I went back and bought it. Obviously menat to be, as when the barcode was scanned, it came up as two pounds cheaper than the price tag! LOL.

So, here it is, sitting on my mantelpiece, awaiting complete redecoration of the sitting room to match it!! :)
It is wooden, with a wee door at the back, to access the workings; I need to get a rechargeable battery for it when we're in town next. Because it's quite big, and hollow inside, it has a big loud tick too, which I like to listen to when the house is quiet............

I love it.

Oh that's so pretty Mrs L - I could do with a clock for my mantlepiece, as I don't wear a watch and I'm always asking the time!
