Over Sized Clocks

Hello everyone!
 
Hope everyone had a nice weekend. We've been keeping our eye on Hurricane Isaac and now hear that it is going west of us instead of directly towards us.  That is good news except now it is headed right for New Orleans. Hope everyone stays safe that is in the path of this storm!
 
I've been doing a little rearranging of things around the house (again).  I thought I'd share my new mantel decor or rather lack thereof.  I've simplified even more, but am very happy with the results.
 
I love over sized clocks.  I have a couple already, but none were in a very prominent spot in the house.  I changed that today. 
 


  This clock used to be in my upstairs hallway.  It is residing over the fireplace until I get this one that I ordered from Joss and Main.
 


It won't be here for several more weeks, but I wanted to go ahead and see how a clock would look above the fireplace by using another one that I already had.  I like it!  So, it will stay here until my new one arrives.  The new one is around the same size too.   So, my upstairs hallway is a little bare right now.  Ha!
 
 

 
So, for now.......here it is.  Less little stuff on the mantel and more impact with a large piece.  Plus, we never have to ask "What time is it?" anymore!  Ha!
 
Thanks for stopping by!

I love large scale clocks too. Even if they don't work.

I love it and the one you ordered. I have a large one above my tv and it works because you notice the clock and not the tv so much:)

I saw that clock. That will look nice there.

Hi Kelly! Oh, it looks wonderful. Now with my olden eyes I don't think I'd even have to squint to see the time! :)
For such a young one, you sure have style!
Be a sweetie,

It looks great...you are so lucky you don't have a big ole TV over your mantel. That's what I have and I've finally made peace with it. I do love looking at mantels like yours though so I'm glad you shared. :o)

Hmm.. see I have company in the over sized clock collection!
So far one in entryway, one in hall bath and one in Garage. That one will be coming in the laundry room when I finish with the redo.
I luv clocks period!!! Have many in the public part of the house including 2 inherited chiming ones. The hang on the wall , so, not sure if they can be called grand father/ mother clocks??
Luv the one on the mantel now! Luv the one you ordered.
Cheers, Gee

I love the big clock over your fireplace! Can't wait to see the new one!

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

I like it, Kelly! Plus, you'll have a choice between the two once your new one arrives. I like how this one looks with your shutters behind it.

I have a thing about clocks, they seem to be everywhere in my house, I must like to always know what time it is. I think I need a big one somewhere.
