Show & Tell Friday~

Here is a wooden mantel clock I picked up at an estate sale recently for the small sum of $3 bucks. It is a new clock-- it runs on 3 double A batteries. Two of the batteries operate the hourly/half hour chime. Needless to say, I took those out the first night!! To loud for this light sleeper sleeping way down at the other end of the house lol. When company comes over though-- I am soooooooo putting them back in! It does sound lovely!The dark wood of the clock just didn't look right in my house at all! Sooooooo I painted it-- I know, I know-- some wrinkle their noses, but it does look like it belongs now :-)
Lastly, I share my bounty of cherries with you. I planted a cherry tree last year and just look at all this yumminess. I left a lot on the tree for my yard squirrel to eat. The little stinker loves his sweets!This show & tell is hosted by Kelli :-)

I like what you did with the clock. It looks like it 'fits' now. The cherries look delicious!

Nice clock, and the cherries look great! At one time we lived 'in' a cherry orchard, and the farmer let us have as many cherries as we wanted - the kids were little then, and made quite a mess picking and eating those sweet cherries.

Great clock "makeover"! We saw cherries at the farmer's market last week but they were $5.00 a basket!
You're fortunate to have a tree:)

Those cherries look yummy! And I like the clock painted...the bit of antiquing at the bottom is really nice. Great find for $3.00!

I think the clock looks nicer in white! You did an excellent job.

We love cherries at my little home. I hope they arrive at the grocery store soon! :)

If you've been to my post, you know I love clocks. Yours are very pretty and what a bargain for the first one. I like the one you painted,too.

I actually like the clock better in white! I saw it "normal" at first and thought, "Very pretty". I saw the 2nd pic and thought "WOW, even prettier!" A great bargain too!

I am eager for the cherries to hit the store. Yours look yummy!

I usually prefer wood finish but the pretty details sure did show up better after you painted it!

What a difference the paint makes! You can really see the detail now.

It looks like a totally different clock painted. It is amazing, and you did a fantstic job. I'm not sure if I would have thought to do that. Nice work. Cherries, what a sweet treat.
