Nesting...

Remember this hollowed out clock I purchased at TheWhite Home Event and told you I was going to paint white?

Well here it is....

The little "eggs" you see are actually candy (speckled malted eggs)

I played around with some birds that I had.....


I think I like this look the best.



The cherubs....Oh the Cherubs...BONUS!

Beautiful. Gives me an idea for an old clock without the workings that I have. Happy Sunday!

oh how sweet diane! i have 2 clocks JUST like those...both are gold and one is without the "guts". I think i have me an idea of what to do with it now! TFS! :)

I never would have thought to use the old clock that way. Very creative and cute! I had a lot of fun looking at the pictures of the White Home Event. It would be hard to leave empty handed. Neat that you could go.

Have a great Sunday!
Michelle :)

I of course think everything looks great painted white, but I just love how the nest and eggs look inside the clock.

Perfect with the nest and birds, Diane! What a great idea and it's such a detailed piece.

I like the last bird arrangement best, too! Great job on the painting - it looks fabulous, and I love your new tin shoe, too!

This is beautiful!! What a creative way to use the clock. The birds and the nest are adorable.

Those little malted eggs are my downfall!! :)

I would not have thought of painting one of those clocks white, but it sure turned out to be a gorgeous thing to do! Love it! xxx tami
