Tick Tock Tick Tock Tick Tock Tick Tock Decor

My honey and I have a little weakness for clocks. We have a clock in every room except the dining room of our *lake house.* We have a grandfather clock, metal clocks, mantel clocks, cheap clocks and even an antique wooden clock that belonged to my dad's parents. How many clocks do you have in your home?  Photos: Mora Clocks (my favorites); Venetian Mirror clock online; Botanical inspired clock; Wonderful Kitchen clock online; Antique Silver-clad clock; Organic-inspired clock; Door Clock - cannot remember what blog I found this - let me know & I'll link it; Astronomy-inspired Sunburst clock; and Toaster Clock and Toasted clock!

The toaster clock is the cutest clock I've ever seen. My husband has a clock obsessions but thankfully has abstained from some of his longings. This spring while in Germany I did have to stop him from spending a large sum on a cuckoo clock (though it was beautiful)!

Janean,
We have them in every room, too. Somehow is is comforting to be able to look at a clock and see what time it is.

Janean,

Thomas and I share your fetish. We have antique grandfather clocks in many rooms. You should be here when they all strike 12!

Your Friend,

Good morning Janean,
Praying your dad's health is improving.

I love all the clocks. I must admit that I have a clock fetish. I have more than one clock in all of my rooms.
Have a good day!

I just counted 10 in my head that I know we have in our house. There could be more. My most favorite is a new one. It shines the time up on the ceiling at night and gives of a soft blue glow.

What a fab collection of clocks! We have the bare minimum, only one here and there, but not because we wouldn't love more! The tall clocks are beautiful...

I love clocks too - I'm always astounded by the amount bloggers have in common. I'm looking for the perfect clock for the bathroom - I tend to settle into the tub and then wonder how long I've been reading and soaking!

Hello Janean! I love clocks too...we have a Grandfather clock in the living room and a mantle clock in the office and a large wall clock on the wall in the kitchen, a blue toile clock in the spare bedroom another wall clock in the bathroom...yadda yadda. My favorite is the Grandfather's clock though...I love the 'tick tock' and of course the Westminster chimes. I hope you are doing well....Maura :)

I kinda have the same problem! My latest clock is in my kitchen. It's an old school clock and runs perfectly. I love it!!!

Sharon said...

I have clocks in every room also and I have 2 in the kitchen. I love clocks till it is time to change them in the spring and fall. I think at this time I have to many clocks.

We don't have enough. So many things today have clocks on them like the DVR's, Microwave, Oven, etc. that we don't have many decorative clocks. We do have a lovely grandmother clock in our hallway. I want to do a wall in the hallway with those big clock but hubby doesn't like the idea.

sissie said...

The clock on the door is the show stopper! Love it.

Of course I wouldn't mind owning all those clocks!! LOL

hugs

We had WAY to many clocks and we are retired! lol Love the last two...very cute! ♥

Technodoll said...

Don't laugh... ok rather, feel sorry for moi... we don't have a single clock in our giant home... I know, I know! I'll get one eventually once I get to decorating this place... eventually. for now i rely on the microwave to tell me what time it is, LOL! I don't wear a watch either...

Beverly @ My Sew Sweet Studio said...

We have a clock in every room too, but not all of them as cute as these. My favorite hanging from an arm on a stand. Think it is kinda French looking. But the one I loved was an old brass alarm with the bells on top for the alarm. Don't know what happened to it.
Oh well, thanks for sharing all the different clocks. The toaster and the toast...cute.

kpaints said...

Love the silverware one...I could see mismatched silver being use. Love the simplicity of the wood clock too! They are all clever!

Bernie said...

Yup it is the clock on the door that I love as well....I too love clocks and have them in every room in my house....how pathetic is that.
Hope your father is getting better, am keeping you all in my prayers.......:-) Hugs
