Ever So Pretty, Ever So Clever Friday, #7….Clock Inspiration

The other day, I saw Suzy’s (Worthing Court) shutter and clock project….

…..it was fantastic!

So it gave me an idea.

I do not have old shutters in this room, but I do have an iron gate.

So the wheels were turning in my head….I had an epiphany!

…..off to HomeGoods I go to get a clock…and here is the result.


I found a clock that had the perfect color on the frame…

and…here is Suzy’s project…

Isn’t it pretty?!!!


As you can see by the time, it was late in the evening when I took pictures today…

….spent all day running errands.


I am helping my hubby get ready for a golf tournament for his softball team…

…..and doing some last minute things for my upcoming event this weekend.


A bloggers trip to the High Point Market.


So as you can see…it is getting late…

…..time to get the house ready…for a special guest coming this weekend.


And it is also time to consult with my personal fashion stylist….

…..no, not Rachel Zoe, but close, my friend Linda.

Don’t laugh, we will be face timing and she will be giving the thumbs up or down on my outfits…

…..for the Market!…Hey, when you are having breakfast with Aerin Lauder, you have to have a cute outfit!


So gotta run…to start fluffing the guest room…as time is drawing near..


To welcome my very special guest and one that I can truly call “a wonderful friend”….

    Love the clock on the gate…makes the gate pop. And speaking of pop, so does that yellow necklace you bought for your outfits pop. How did you know I love Rachel Zoe and always watch her show? Can’t wait until I soon see the guest room, the outfits, but most of all, you up close and personal! Have fun this weekend.
