Big Ben

Today I was walking past a little shop when I spied this beauty inside!! A fabulous big clock!!!! I thought it would be ideal for a little area at the base of my stairs but it was way too big for that so after a bit of fluffy around with Mr FH holding the clock up  against the wall in various locations I decided to hang it on the wall in our dining area. When we first bought the beach house (2 1/2 yrs ago) I framed these gorgeous prints from a calendar and hung them there as we had too many other things that we needed to buy before we could get to the tizzy bits!! I really liked them so they remained until today!  I decided they would move to the base of the stairs but in moving them I smashed the glass in one so I need to have that replaced before I can show you!
This is what the dining room wall looked like…

Now this is what it looks like….

Not sure that Mr FH was that crazy about it until our son and his fiancĂ© came to stay and they loved it so I think that convinced him it was ok.  You can still see the hangers from the prints still on the wall near the clock…I was a bit excited about photographing my new favourite thing!!! I have since removed them and touched up the paint!

This gorgeous new lamp was a gift from a friend at Christmas. Just perfect!
This is our last week at the beach house. It’s going to be hard to go home to the farm after 6 weeks. We will still spend most weekends here for the rest of the summer though. Back to work next Tuesday!

I LOVE that big ol' clock! Gimme, gimme, gimme!!!!!!!! That is really cool! I think the size of it just makes it that much cooler. After all, with a name like Big Ben, it HAS to have great presence!!! Mr. FH finally got on board, huh? Men! They're so funny! My husband would be OK if everything in the house stayed the exact same way as the first day we moved in...boxes and all!!! He is SO resistant to change! I just ignore him. :-) Have a great weekend!!!
