Time Flies  


This was my first mantle clock piece, a present for my daughter, who at the time was stressed to the max, working and trying to finish her dissertation for her phd. The pocket watch to the left of the fireplace is a replica of the original that I had placed there, one that still works, that belonged to her great, great grandfather. She put it away for safekeeping after her cats kept trying to break in if the door was left ajar.  I loved the glass door and once the original clock mechanics were removed a whole new room opened up for miniatures and electricity. The room has objects in it that were specific for her at that time. A biographical diarama so to speak. The key is antique as are all the little framed title holders that I have collected over the years because I like them. Most were attached to ribbons identifying conventions from the 40’s and 50’s. The chandelier is made of Swarovski crystals and is beautiful when lit. The many antique watch faces have been found in flea markets and Etsy along with the birds I have been collecting over the years, and the airplants and moss balls are courtesy of artist friends who live in Sarasota, Fl.
