What time is it ?

Is it weird to want a clock primarily for it's beauty and not it's time? If so, I guess I'm weird. I've come to accept this genetic trait that's been handed down from my ancestors. It's all their fault that I'm weird. I just know it.

I was reading one of my favorite blogs My Life on the East Coast and noticed something beautiful above her desk in which she blogs from. A gorgeous iron clock. I wanted one really bad.

Well, Hobby Lobby was having a sale (can you believe it?) on all their iron stuff. It wasn't exactly like my friends but it was close.



You would think with this large piece of iron I would know what time it is. However, my working/blogging space is in my bedroom. I can't have anything that ticks and tocks all night. But I think it's beautiful just the way it is. Even if it doesn't speak.




Did I mention that I have my own little personal back supporter and space heater? Yes, she sits on her pillow while I work and/or blog. She is very warm.






I also have a black kitty that sits on my desk while working. Isn't she pretty? I think those that say they're not cat people have never been loved by a cat. The relationship between a cat and her owner is special.

I've been tagged by The Hinesley House to post 6 random things about myself. So here is goes:

1: I love pets. Including the lazy kind.




2: I'm a very political person. I take my voting privilege very serious. I read each and every proposition and watch all debates. I know my ancestors before me didn't always have this right.




3. I love reading with my youngest every night. He is the only one of my kids that loves reading. (I know, sad) So, I take advantage of it and let him read for almost an hour. He is 6.

4. I'm a very loyal friend. Once we are friends, it's hard to get rid of me.

5. I'm feeling very tired at this point and can't think of any other random things about me.

6. Are you still reading this?


Thanks Hinseley House for tagging me. Anyone that would like to play along is welcome.

Rofl..loved reading up about you. I have been tagged and need to get to it..but alas I feel like I am really boring. I love cats too and don't get (Mother-in-law) people who say they are not cat people. Your puppies are adorable as is the clock. NOW I am gonna go to bed..why am I still up. My son Hunter loves to read too..as do I. cherry

Hi Brandee,
I really think your clock looks great. It blends well with your decor.

It was fun learning more about you through this post!

Kitty Scraps said...

How did I miss that clock? And your fur babies are so cute, I was actually laughing out loud seeing them all sprawled out snoozing away, so funny!

Rae said...

How long ago did I post a picture with that clock? I can't believe you remembered it! :) Actually I can, I'm the same way. When I see something I really like I don't forget! I'm so glad you were able to find that wonderful clock. It looks great above your desk!

I LOVE your personal heater/back support. So adorable. I tell ya, as it gets chillier and chillier (40's this morning) I could definitely use your little doggy!

As you know, I too am grateful for the privilege of voting! We are truly blessed to live in a democracy!

The clock is wonderful ~ You have a great computer area. Dixie is always with me when I am "working" on the computer!

Love that clock.

I am the girl who wears a broken watch because it matches my outfit, doesn't matter that it has needed a new batery for years! haha

Lisa Ann said...

Love the clock. It looks really nice there.
I knew I liked you - pets & politics....my kind of girl.
I listen to talk radio throughout the day, with the dog & cat not too far away.:)

Becky said...

I love your clock. Seriously girl, I could stay in Hobby Lobby for hours, maybe days. I love that place. I'm a HUGE animal lover too. Your babies are all sooooo adorable. Have a GREAT weekend!

Darlene said...

I LOVE your ironwork "clock"....it looks great above your work desk. Oh and your fur babies are just adorable....I always have one or more around me when I am sitting anywhere!

Always LOVE hearing more about you in tags....I got tagged again so I have to think up some more things about me! I sure wish Lexi liked/loved to read and she absolutely HATES it (I think it is the sitting kind of still part)...I can't hardly understand that cause I LOVE to read!

Sandy Toes said...

How fun! What great facts about you! How funny about Hobby Lobby having a sale...they are always having a sale...it's like Kohls. Love that clock!

Great non-ticking clock! It looks beautiful above your desk....and I must say the furry desk accessories are CHARMING! I'm with you...I love my pets...and I take our right to vote very seriously. I wish everyone would do their homework before casting their ballot. The world would be a much better place!

da Bergs said...

AJ said...

I can see why you had to have that clock:) And your furbabies are so adorable. The only pet we have lives in a bowl:(

da Bergs said...

A Halloween clock??!!! How fun is that??!!! Post a picture!

Reynie said...

Your pets are just adorable. My mom's cat sits on her computer while she works. If she doesn't get attention every few minutes, she proceeds to walk across the keyboard.

Girly Stuff said...

Cute pets! And I love the clock...I can't believe Hobby Lobby had them on sale...or is it more like...I can't believe Hobby Lobby would not have these on sale. Have a good weekend!

Rue said...

Hi Brandee :)

Your furry babies are so cute, especially that back pillow ;)

Your son is adorable and it was great learning about you. I love clocks just for being pretty or cute too :)

You have the funniest posts...I love looking at them. Great, great sense of humor.
The dogs are adorable, as is your son!!!

Tracey said...

The "ornamental" clock looks great!!
Love you furry blogging buddies :)
and your little boy is a cutie!!!

Marivic_Little GrumpyAngel said...

I'm jealous (in a good way if that's possible) of your clock. I want one. Your dog looks adorable. I'm a dog person. I think your cat is beautiful but I've never had a cat so I can't say I love cats. Your boy is very cute. It's great that he likes to read. He will be a very well informed young man and a wonderful date when he grows up.

Laura Ingalls Gunn said...

Oh your sweet kitty looks just like the one I had in high school. Love your back heater. He/she reminds me of a Reese's. :)

Ruby Red Slippers said...

I love your dog-sooo cute! But even cuter is your son-as a mom of three boys-I can tell that one is a keeper! Those eyes! That smile! And he loves to read?! Keep that one!!!

salpetitt said...

I love the pix of your lazy animals. I have lots of lazy animals too...and love seeing them all curled up in comfy spaces! One of my cats likes to sit on my computer desk chair and will not move so I have to share the seat with her and she becomes my back-warmer! ~Sherri

Debbie @ ribbonwoodcottage.blogspot.com said...

Hi Brandee! I love your clock it is just beautiful and perfect where it is. And I LOVE that little dog. I have 4 giant labs that would love to be my lap dog...hahaha they think they fit on my lap!!! I enjoyed your tag info...I have some more questions. Are you project oriented, do you procrastinate, how long do you blog everyday? What is your favorite beverage, meal, treat? What excites you when you shop, what do you dream about, hope for, wish for? See...I could make your questions and you could answer them!!!
Blessings,
Debbie
PS would love to know all the answers sweet one!

Oliver's said...

I was looking at the pictures from your shopping trip and I would love to spend the day in a store like that. I could almost smell pumpkin spice and nutmeg as I looked through the photos. The fall is my favorite time to shop! Smiles, Paula

Kelli said...

I had fun learning more about you and I loved seeing your sweet friends!
~Kelli
P.s Pumpkin spice tea sounds so yummy.

Meg said...

I LOVE LOVE LOVE your puppies! That clock looks so good on that wall too. Who cares if it doesn't work!?!? I've enjoyed reading your blog.

~The Robin's Nest~ said...

I love clocks too...The one you have in your bedroom is just beautiful!

Susie Harris said...

Lovin' that clock! It's a beauty~ those fur babies of yours are just too darn cute too... You Know I love them furballs...dogs and cats. I would have a house full like you if I could sneak them around my husband~

Hooked on Houses said...

I agree that non-cat-people must never have had one. I loved having a cat. She was a wonderful pet and not nearly as high maintenance as the dogs I've had. We had to give her away after our son was born and was severely allergic to the kitty. I still miss her. Boo-hoo.

Love the clock! -Julia

Ms. Tee said...
