...time is a funny thing...



I have given my fair share of moments to the meaning of time; I suppose I even ponder it in the few spare minutes I have each day...

Its passing, the waxing and waning of days that are magic, how some weeks seem more full than others. I wonder how time accumulates and then passes without me knowing; I only feel the wake of memory as I am tossed in the surf of seasons.

In the new year I want time for so many things. I want "time" to savor and enjoy "time" with the people I love most, time to grow, time to share and learn...I want time, more time...greedy me...and I face the realization I do have it. Each day, and what I choose make of it.


I found these clocks and this cabinet at Jack's Barn ...a fab shopping destination in Oxford, NJ. But how could I forget my camera when I went on that sweltering day last July -- how could I not bring it ?!? (...I need to dedicate a blog post to the wonders of this place...)

I loved each of them -- the clocks -- separate and even more together for all that they were, creamy and worn. Some were ticking some not, but I bought them all from Vicki, one of the wonderful dealers in this multi-dealer shop, along with the cabinet from owners Chris and Darren. (They gave me a wonderful deal and I promised them I would give their uber cute dolly cabinet a new life in my house.)



Funny, I brought them home and they sat...clocks and cabinet...for a long time...wrapped and waiting in the closet...until I remembered they were here.

I suppose that's how time is, until you figure out you have it, and you get to do what you want with it...

Thanks for the kind words about Jack's. I haven't had the opportunity to get to Jersey in a while so I'm missing Chris and Darren and I'm missing out on the treasures @ Jack's Barn! Vicky has one of the best areas at Jack's. She has a great knack for putting things together and her prices are fabulous. "...time is amazingly fair & forgiving.

Great display Jen! It doesn't matter if some clocks don't work. Sometimes time stands still. I wish;)
Hugs, Liz

Love cabinet and clocks - and such sweet shoes. One of my fav clocks is the clock face near my bathtub with no hands - perfect, time on pause for some bliss.
