White Wednesday Millinery Flower and Alarm Clocks....

This is what I see to my right while I'm on my computer.
A large white millinery flower pinned to a very dull and boring lampshade on an old glass lamp and few old alarm clocks. Every so often when I bump the table one starts ticking.

My home made desk consists of a long and wide board over a file cabinet on the left and an old drawer stack on the right...that was the only way to get a desk wide enough and it's the best desk I've ever had.

Love that flower!

Oh, and the philodendron plant that has wound itself around everything!

Most of the clocks don't work except for the white Big Ben and the white clock in the background is the one that starts ticking now and then.

Thanks for stopping by!

Barbara Jean sent me over, and I have enjoyed my first visit here.
The old trunk that belonged to your husband's ggrandmother's sister is fantastic! It must have had moth balls in it! I remember that smell.
