I’ve had some questions regarding my clock wall. When we got married, we registered for a lot of clocks. Being frugal and poor, we decided to make art out of the clocks, and arranged the clocks together on the same wall. Throughout the years, the wall has had different shapes and a few have been retired, but the clock wall remains.
If you’re a first time guest to our house, chances are that you will think you’re very witty and have an original joke. You’ll ask, “Do you know what time it is?” and follow the question with a goofy chuckle. At which point, we will oblige you with a courtesy laugh. We’ve done this about sixty-two times. Then you will suggest “Why don’t you set them all to different times around the world?” My response to that will be, “They are. They are all twelve hours apart.” Been there. Done that. Forty-seven times.
I suppose we could use it to our advantage if we have boring company. “My, where has the time gone? Did you realize how late it is?!?!!” But, the company we keep are not boring.
Shortly after I arranged the wall for the first time, my mom brought me a clipping from a Martha Stewart magazine of a CLOCK WALL! Now, this was way before blogland and pinterest. I tried to find it online to share, but I couldn’t. Sigh. But that little magazine clipping gave me the confidence I needed–while I may not be the greatest decoratin’ diva, I do occasionally have a winner in which even Martha approves!! It has become a trademark in my home, and I like it!
What’s your trademark?
