I Found an Hourglass!

Okay, so it's not an actual hourglass, but it is a really cool representation of one. In my New Year...New Mantel post, I eluded to the fact that I was on the hunt for an hourglass to round out the "time" theme of my mantel.

It wasn't long before I gave up looking for an actual hourglass and started hunting online for a graphic I could frame. I figured I needed to balance out the Watch Display on the other side of the mantel. Remembering others had found equally interesting pictures at the Graphics Fairy, I thought I'd give it a try. Sure enough, there was a graphic for a vintage hourglass. Yay! I printed it out on some aged-looking scrapbook paper, cut it to size and put it in a frame. Voila!
So, how many posts can one do on a mantel? Well, at least three...I just kept tweaking 'til I got it how I liked it. I'm satisfied now and will leave it alone for...a...really...long...time. I guess I better start working on the rest of the room now. ;-) Have you gotten your "after Christmas" look together yet? Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful weekend!

  1. Hi! Thanks for visiting my blog - I'm following you back, and you've now inspired me to take a look at my mantle....perhaps it's time for a change!


  2. The hourglass is the perfect addition! It looks great!

  3. Love the clocks and the hour glass picture is beautiful.

  4. Homegoods has hour glasses. There were 3 or 4 different ones when I was there on Wed. I actually got one there this summer.
