Just (In) Time

Isn't it funny how sometimes the "innards"
of an object are every bit as
lovely as the outer appearance?

I LOVE seeing the gears inside
old watches, so I decided
to make a necklace from one part.
I added a few tiny antique buttons
for a little vintage "bling".

I gathered up more of the parts
and added them to my
antique receipt file that I use
as a magnetic clip board.

It's what's inside that counts, too - right?

  12. Well, I made a comment and it disappeared. Google and open ID are not getting along again. Drives me nuts. Means I have to use my Google account and I blog over on WordPress. If you use my icon to get to my blog you'll have to click twice. Anyway - I enjoyed my visit - I love clock innards - wheels and cogs. Have you worn the necklace and gotten comments or compliments on it? It's great. Here by way of Liz's Time Travel Thursday. Jenn
