New year, new apartment, new clock!
Sean made this clock from…clocks! We had been collecting clocks for a few years in preparation for the clock o’clocks. After countless thrift store visits to find clocks that were just the right size and look, we finally turned to Ebay to complete the collection. Since the clocks didn’t need to be functional, we were able to purchase a lot of vintage clocks for a reasonable price.
Here are some close ups of my favorites. If you look at the top photo, you can see how each clock is set to the hour it represents. 11 o’clock is my current favorite.
And if you have sharp eyes, you might notice that one of the clocks is not vintage. 12 o’clock is a modern twin bell alarm clock that we ended up buying from Amazon in the eleventh hour 😉
The actual clock hands were used in our last apartment for our leaf clock, also a Sean original. In the fall, we collected leaves from Prospect Park and preserved them with glycerin. Someday I’ll do post on that process.
