I love this idea to cover up ugly air conditioning units outside!
If you have any sticks left over, build a cool trellis like this one!
Spotted all of the above on a Garden Week tour!
I looked at a zillion clocks before choosing one for our kitchen. I wanted the clock to go over the window, and that meant that I was limited to a certain size. I wanted a clock with a schoolhouse/station clock look but couldn’t find what I was looking for that was the size I needed. Then I found this amazing white ceramic Karlsson clock online. However, it seemed to be out of stock everywhere! I eventually found and had it shipped from a shop in Wales. The internet is pretty amazing!
It is lovely – but the shiny silver hands on the shiny white face are a bit hard to read (and really hard to photograph!). I’m thinking about painting them black.
Just because I now have a clock, it doesn’t stop me from noticing other cool clocks everywhere I go! Here are a few I’ve spotted recently:
Found in a friend’s kitchen – a lovely oversized (23″) station clock with clean lines. It really stood out against her grey walls and its large size added a whimsical touch to the room.
Spotted this one and was instantly smitten! Loved the thick convex glass cover and see-through view of the gears in this hook mounted nickel wall clock:
Saw these two and loved their simple modern look:
Is it a clock or is it sculpture? The beautiful wood and interesting shape of this one caught my eye:
The open spaces of these two would really make them pop on a colorful wall:
If this one had an alarm, it would definitely be on my bedside table!
And of course any of these midcentury classics would make any room they were in!
Although the one at the store seemed to be missing its orange minute hand, it’s my favorite of the moment!

I dropped into Arhaus last week (when I was supposed to be food shopping for Thanksgiving – don’t tell!) and loved all the beaded throw pillows I saw. What a great way to add some sparkle to a room during the winter months! Think about these in the bedroom as well as the living room. They’re more versatile than you would think – any style of decor can use a little shine and a little goes a long way. Which is your favorite?
I encourage you to click on each picture to enlarge – the detail on each pillow is worth it. The zebra stripes below are actually made up of a variety of different beads.
I think these below are my favorite – I just love a symmetrical pattern.
