Find The Time

Find the time . . . .

*find the time*
The time to read.
to smell the flowers,
to paint your dreams,
to have coffee with a friend,
to learn a new craft,
to write a letter,
to bake a surprise cake,

 The clock my grandfather brought from Germany.
I wind it every week and enjoy the beautiful chimes.
Another clock my grandfather brought with him from Germany.
I listened to it's chimes growing-up.
 My mother always wanted a tall
grandfather's clock. 
I bought this one for her as a surprise
 birthday present years ago. 
She loved the sound of the chimes on  
the quarters, half hour and on the hour.
She enjoyed it for years.
I wind them weekly and
 enjoy them all as part of 
the sounds of my house.

Enjoy Every Minute 


  1. I love all your vintage clocks. I am a collector as well. I especially love the Grandfather clock you gave to your mother. Bet she was thrilled! Fondly, Susie

  2. I love all your German and the one you gave to your mom, what a generous daughter!! I have one for the wall, very much like yours, it's vintage, made in NYC, it was my fil's, he gave it to my hubby and I love the chimes as my gradfather had one and it reminds me when I was a little girl. Lots of hugs. FABBY

  3. Beautiful treasures and memories!! My parents have a grandfather clock in their home and when I visit I love the feel the chimes fill the home with. Wishing you a fabulous day xo HHL

  4. I love clocks sooo much. I love the sounds ~ they remind me of my grandfather ~ I have quite a few and just enjoy them sooo much ~ enjoy ~ have a great week ;-)

  5. Gorgeous treasures! What a clock! Thanks for sharing.

  6. Your collection is marvelous. I love the meaning attached to the clocks you've shown us, and the opening quote is excellent.

    A wonderful childhood memory is that of the chiming mantel clock in my grandparents house. I have no idea what happened to it, so several years ago I bought one for our home, and I absolutely *love* the soothing sound of it.

  7. Beautiful ! I love your clocks ! Thanks foe sharing.

  8. Beautiful clocks! I keep telling myself to make the time to do all these things-but they never seem to get done-isn't that terrible.

  9. Your clocks are all gorgeous. I love them under a cloche too. Never thought of that idea. I also couldn't help but notice your beautiful vignette of photos on the end table. So pretty. Everything is so well done and accessorized. Thanks so much for joining TTT. Hugs, Marty

  10. Your clocks are beautiful and what memories they recall. We brought back four clocks from Germany when we lived there. Nice post and nice thoughts about finding time to enjoy the important things in life.
