Time Keeps on Slippin' (Slippin', Slippin'...)

Late last year, I scored an awesome "vintage" wall clock from HomeGoods. I spotted it hanging out behind the counter as I was on my way out the door and I asked one of the sales ladies if it was on hold for someone. She said no so I asked her what the price was and when said "$69.99" I said sold! As far as I could tell, nothing was wrong with the clock and while I didn't really have a spot for it in my old condo, I knew someone else would snatch it up if I left it behind.

When I got it home, it sat against the wall for a while waiting for the perfect spot to be hung. I eventually hung it up on the wall in the weird nook in our old bedroom and that's where it ended up staying until we moved out last month.

The only problem with it hanging up in the bedroom is that no one, except my boyfriend and I, ever got to see it because it's a little weird to ask your guests to come into your bedroom to look at the new clock you just bought.

With that in mind, I knew that when we moved to the new house, I wanted to find a more prominent spot to hang it to avoid anymore awkward bedroom invitations. I had originally thought about hanging it above a console table in the living room but it looked teeny tiny when I held it up against the wall and the console table I was planning on using ended up being too deep.

On a whim, I decided to see what it would look like hanging in the kitchen and I think it's found its permanent home!

I was surprised at how well the colors in the clock work with our cabinetry and countertops and although our microwave a stove both have clocks on them, they're a little hard to read when you're sitting in the living room or dining room :)
