Face Time

I like any old or new clock with a pretty face especially Roman Numerals as the numbers .I have an old ship clock face which intrigued me when I bought it even without a  pretty face I liked the bakelite case and because I had never seen one before.
As I rearrange things in the house I find something I hadn't looked at for some time and say oh you're so pretty and here is some of my pretty clock faces.

 I have been soaking and washing some of my vintage linens and ironing it and thought my little ornament clock looked so pretty laying on the fresh ironed hand towels
I have two of these little clocks

This sets on my bookcase in the living room I bought it at an estate sale once however it runs on a battery so not so vintage however she looks good LOL


Then my old ship clock which I love setting on my book cases. I took it outside to really look it over and in the nature light you can see the face much nicer than inside 

 The face unscrews from the case to open

I have been trying to clean off some book shelves in the studio since I have massive amounts of boxes of  card making vintage papers I have kept and now I want a new look in one part of my studio . If the handyman ever gets my new window in I can put things back in there proper lace 

Link parties I joined in
