About 8 years ago I was reading an issues of BHG and read an article about this interior designer. They were showcasing her home and where she got some of the great ideas and items in her house. One of the things she had was this massive clock in her entryway. When I say massive I mean massive. The sucker took up the whole wall. It was old and fantastic looking and something that is definitely a conversation piece. Since she was an interior designer she had the ins and outs of buildings being torn down and would search them for items to use. This one building had a clock on the outside tip top of the building...she wanted it. They told her if she could get it down she could have it and that's just what she did. Every time her friends would walk through the door they would shout
WHAT TIME IS IT?
I got a huge kick out of this.....and totally fell in ♥ with her clock. I knew right then and there I had an obsession with finding my "What Time Is It" clock. Thus started my collection and always searching for my own massive ticker!
Through the years I've collected some....and since getting remarried my sweet hubs has added to my obsession for me. I want a wall of clocks in one of our rooms....They are yet to be hung b/c I'm still working on placement. (and begging hubs to take an afternoon to be my slave w/the hammer, wall anchors and patience) I think I have around 11 clocks of all different shapes and sizes for that one wall. Total around the house ...(not including alarm clocks in each room) I have 15 around the house in different locations.
One thing with my obsession? It's a pain to 1. change batteries....2. daylight savings time
Right before my birthday I was
STALKING reading a blog and she had this massive clock above her mantle. I had to ask where she got it.....hoping it was recent. SHE WROTE ME BACK WITH THE DETAILS...bless her. So off hubs ran to buy it for my birthday present!!
It may not be the biggest one yet....but it's the biggest clock I have run across to date since reading that article. This one is my biggest yet measuring 4 ft.
Here she is....
and just a few other various ones around the house...
My dear friend Amber still remembers after all these years of me telling this story and to this day when she and her daughter are out and about and see a big clock they yell
what time is it? in honor of me!!! (grins)
If any of you find a clock the size of a building....send them my way! My obsession will thank you.
