She displayed a collection of vintage clocks on the mantel.
Tins she found at Target and used for a made up
game called: Remember When?
Her French fireplace mantel was covered with old books, clocks and a French gumdrop fringe shawl.
Her New Years Table for two was actually "an old table that when covered, you'd never know."
She used sap buckets from a hobby store to hold candles.
Elizabeth created a cozy setting for a quiet evening for two to end the year.
Elizabeth's Timepiece Theme used vintage clocks, watch faces and parts. She says "the little space was only 6' x 7' , has a worn, tattered and elegant look with an old world feel. Very inexpensive to do!"
Definite inspiration for next year! I've found a new collection to hunt & gather! In the meantime, if you wanted to create a similar look, you could also utilize this clock face ornament and free pdf download I found earlier this December over at the blog Bargain Hoot to create your own - but similar look.
It's almost t i m e . . . I actually took down and packed up the tree yesterday afternoon. Although most of the holiday decor is down, I did leave up a few pieces of bling for a festive restyle for New Years Eve... I'd like to share, but for some reason, they aren't uploading from my phone. Hopefully for tomorrow, they will.
Happy (early) New Year!!
Thanks for stopping by,
