This was a clock!


   Would you believe that this was once a clock?! My family received it over 30 years ago. After a number of years it stopped working so Janine and I placed a postcard of a Kookaburra where the clock’s face used to be. First we pasted the postcard on a piece of cartridge paper. I am sure this was more than 15 years ago!  Janine received the postcard from one of her pen-pals.

I like how it turned out seeing that it is probably more special to keep it than discard it when it stopped working. I like the nature pics you added. It's perfect.
hope you have a good week

Hi Jillian,
I am really glad we kept it. My twin and I have always been bird enthusiasts so we put in a picture of a bird. Janine got this big postcard and it fit in so nicely!:) Take care and have a good day.

What a lovely idea. I would have never guessed it was a clock. Well that was the idea I'm sure.

Have a terrific day Judy. :)

Thanks Sandee! Janine and I decided that it looked lovely so we had to come up with an idea after the clock would not work!:) Take care and enjoy the rest of your day.
