Spring Time!

I gathered up all my clocks and bed springs this morning and did a little vignette on the piano that I like to call "spring time"....  a little pun !!! lol

You all know how I love to have fun decorating the house, and I really enjoyed  doing this pianoscape (is that a word?)

I put some roses in "spring" vases.....that clock on the left is reallllly crusty looking!

Most of the clocks that I used are vintage...some were purchased at the auction or a yard sale... 

I mixed some clock parts in with the piano keys... 

H painted this clock white for me...see that little bitty clock in the left corner? who remembers travel clocks?

I thought this sign should be part of my "time" theme...  I try to decide every morning that I am going to be happy.

This sofa table sits right next to them piano, so I included it in my "spring time" theme..

The birds have been watching the clock....waiting for spring!

I took this picture from my chair as I was working on this post.  I think that I will enjoy my springtime pianoscape!.....I hope you enjoyed my little play on words!  See you later!

  18. Penny, I love the Spring Time theme. Last year I displayed clocks and clock parts and had the theme of 'Time for Spring". Great minds think alike. lol! Great, or crazy; I'm not sure. lol! Thanks for sharing with SYC. I was going to link to your party, but not sure what it's called for a link back.

  19. I am being serious here... one can never have too many clocks to display! I love them just like you do. However, my collection is sparse at this point. Love all the different styles you have on display!

  20. Penny,
    Everything is so much fun, I love looking at pictures of what you are doing any day at all! I love your "Spring" scape, I remembered I have access to some springs and I am going to see what I can do to get them!
