What time is it??

I like wall clocks. I like wrist watches too.
I like to have a wall clock in every room. Sure, most carry a "smart" phone
(that's practically an extension of their body) so they always know the time.
Not me. I'm old school.

It just so happened I had two wall clocks finally cr*p out. They were nothing fancy. Just regular ol' wall clocks. I grabbed a plain, wood one locally, but I wanted something different for the kitchen.

So I hopped on the internet and starting looking for one. I'll tell you what... I couldn't find one!
Scratch that. I couldn't find one I really liked.

The pocket watch clocks are cute. But every one I saw either had "Paris" or "London" written on it. Well, this old farmhouse is red, white and blue and I mean that quite literally.
(Have you seen my decor?) As lovely as Paris and London truly are, it wasn't going to work.

So I was on a mission to find an Americana looking clock. I found some that had an American flag on it, but I wanted something a little more unusual.

Then I found it!
Thank you, Amazon .com!

Kellogg's Corn flakes? Patented in the late 1880's? This is an 1800's farmhouse? Yessiree, that's about as Americana as I'm going to get. The colors are perfect too.

So not only do I love it, I now know when it's time to have a bowl of cereal... Or better yet, a cookie.

Happy Friday, all.

Thanks, ladies! My mom was the queen of finding cool and unusual things. Hopefully I've got a little of that "finding" gene. ;> )
