Time For a New Year

Hickory would like to get this one wound and set in time for the New Year celebration.


He figures what better way to ring in the new than honouring it with the old?

First in a Series

Hickory Dickory wants to do a photo series posing with as many clocks, watches, and other time pieces as I can find for him.

First in the Timepiece Series

I'll start with the ones within my own household and then I guess we'll have to branch out, going on "road trips" as time and opportunity allows. 

Hickory and the Bertmar

This Bertmar, Westminster chime, mantel clock is a family heirloom. It once belonged to my husband's grandparents.

Hickory Dickory

Ooops. After a day of trying dresses on the little mousie ......

do I look like a girl to you

....HE indignantly informed me he was a BOY. 

I'm a boy and don't forget it

.... and his name is Hickory Dickory. His occupation is monitoring the accuracy of clocks, watches, and other time pieces.

Sleepy Heads

PJ set

Peanut and Pumpkin were all set to watch Christmas specials on TV tonight, but they fell asleep in the middle of the first one!

holiday exhaustion

I made a couple of these little robe, pyjama and slippers sets several months ago and just this evening finally got around to listing them on Etsy.

Through the Eyes of a Child

What a joy it is to spend one on one time with a grandchild.

A look of concentration.

A simple walk around the block becomes so much more when observed through the eyes of a two year old. Check out Kenzie's great ladybug find on the kids' blog.
