Kitchen Table Centerpiece


I change what I have on my kitchen table pretty often. This is what I have on there right now. I got the idea of using the clock as a base from Joys of Home (joysofhome.blogspot.com) and also from For the Love of My Home and Life (fortheloveofmyhome.blogspot.com). I have had this clock and it never worked right so I took the mechanism off and am using it kind of like a tray. I love green pottery pieces like this pitcher and am always on the lookout for them. Hope you have a wonderful weekend! I am looking forward to going to some yard sales tomorrow!

Those cute clocks haven't worked so well for me either. What a great idea! I have a dead one hanging on the wall now.

I love this, so creative. I recently found your blog and I am in love! Thanks for helping us see things in a different light. I have a broken clock that I was about to toss. Not Now!

What a fabulous idea to use the clock that way! It sure will make me look differently at some of those inexpensive clocks I see at yard sales, etc. Your centerpiece looks so pretty. laurie
