My New Time Frame.......With A Little Help From A Friend!

I had lunch this week with my friend Shelley, Sweet Pea Home, and afterwards we came back to my home to visit some more.  Now you see, talented friends are a great way to get a 'free' design consult!  I had found this awesome old frame a few weeks back, but I was stumped with what to do with it.  Shelley suggested that I simply hang it on the wall and do a collage with my clock faces.  So, that evening I hung the frame, but couldn't quite get the faces arranged to look good (I was working with 3 larger faces; 2 square and 1 round).  As I pondered, I remembered a recent magazine article where several faces were hanging from chain that had intrigued me.  Ta Da..........

She also helped me with another frame and mirror here:
And here:
I had these 3 mirrors scattered here and there (pics aren't that good..... it's very sunny this morning as I'm shooting). She said they definitely need to be together.   The frames on these are metal with great old chippy white paint and beveled mirrors.

I still need to hang em' high(er), but need to wire one of them.  Then I can put together some accessories!  Hey Shelley, can you come over again soon?

Thanks are awesome and a good friend!

I'm linking up wih Donna for 'Saturday Nite Special' here, and Laurie for 'A Few Of My Favorite Things Saturday' here.

  5. Hey Susie,
    Shelley does some of the best displays I've ever seen but something tells me you would have done a super job on your own.
    Love the clocks in the looks like art now!!!

  6. I love the way you displayed the clock faces! A little inspiration from a friend is always great! ~Marcy

  7. Love those clock faces in the frame, and I think you AND your friend are very clever (love the title of your post too). Those 3 mirrors do look great together. So glad you linked this post to Favorite Things Sat. laurie

  8. The clock face collage remind me of the story that was in Country Living a while back and she used these and I just loved how they were displayed. Of course love your collage too. That Shelley is one super talented girl. The white mirrors look great too. I just love all you do too. Have an awesome week, T
