~ French Alarm Clock ~

A few days ago my friend and I spent the entire day thrifting
I was so excited when I spotted this perfectly chippy antique french alarm clock
It was only $5.00 
Yay! ;)
I love the fabric covered roses box that I found in the same store
It was only $12.00 and reminds me of something from Cabbages and Roses

I decided to take a few photos of my french alarm clock displayed in different ways

It matches perfectly with my $1.99 thriftshop pillow shams in the living room

Isn't it cute?!
~ I hope you had a wonderful weekend friends ~

What a beautiful little clock you found and I love it in the photos with all your treasures. I am so glad that you had a good time with you friend, those days are the best.

That sweet little clock would look lovely anywhere! I do like it in that wooden carry-all. :-) I'm trying to find some olden clocks but haven't had any luck. I let my SIL have the one I was looking at in a little shop, thinking I would be able to find another. so far- no luck! But there's always another yard sale in the future.... :-)
