Tin Clock

It took me a nano-second from the time I spotted this clock at Goodwill until the time I put it in the cart. The price did not deter me. I loved it, I wanted it. I had no idea where I would even put it. I did not care. It could have lived under my bed until inspiration hit. I did not care. It was mine.

I needed wanted it because it reminded me of my 8 pointed metal (pinwheel) star. I loved the colors. They are so ME. I have no idea where it was originally sold, and I can’t find anything on the internet about it. I wish I could. I know I bought my star at Hobby Lobby.

For now anyway, this is where it hangs until/unless I find a better place. It kind of reminds me of the Google Chrome icon on my taskbar!

Just another reason to love Goodwill! (Can you tell I like clocks?) Smile

That's a fabulous clock. I like to shop at Goodwill, too. It's like a treasure hunt. Right now I'm collecting vintage sheets, but I'm getting too many! HA!

It is fun...I figured it out Michelle ;-))
I think I saw something similar to the clock years ago at Pier 1.

I like it too, good thing you beat me to it:-}
We were thrifting last night for a piece of luggage for Larry's upcoming missions trip, and found a great buy in good shape. But, there was a Lady walking around the store with a beautiful stool, oh, man! I was following her to see if she was gonna change her mind, lol ~
