Saturday Surprise - Time

I am fascinated by watch and clock parts. To me they are incredibly intricate, very unique and come in so many shapes and sizes. I purchase an assortment every once in a while to use in my art but I study them first and marvel over them. The theme for Saturday Surprise this week is "Time" and this is my entry.

Heather, this is one of my all time favorites of yours. I love it so much! The background, the keys, the clock parts, the leaves, the embellishment at the top of the roof, the vintage image -- all of it. You are on a roll my dear. Kudos to you. This is a beautiful piece!

I love clock parts too. My dad repaired antique clocks for years as a side business.
