I found this old clock at the thrift store and it was no longer working so I took out the time piece and added a picture...oh, and, of course, a little jewel at the top.

MimiToria writes: Janis - another fabulous project indeed, wether you were the oringal creator or not, just your own touches you add to things always makes it distinctly yours. I too have seen this done elsewhere and loved it, but it is hard to find an empty clock to do it to. Duh!!! I hadn't thought to find one and take it apart. Seems kind of silly now, but a brilliant idea indeed. Love, love, love this.
Thanks again for sharing my friend. Your posts are always fabulous.

fellowjunker writes: Thanks for the sweet comments ladies.......so wish I could take the credit for coming up with this idea, but I actually saw it done somewhere. The Paris picture is from a calender I bought and then I used some stamps I had to add the word. My current addiction is old clocks so am on the hunt!!!

This is really beautiful. What a wonderful idea, you smart girl. I'll be out junking on Sunday and have my eyes peeled for one of these! Thanks so much.

Take care,

1DesignChick writes: What a lovely piece! And I really like the surprise element-you see a clock case and expect to see the clock! But there is the sweet b&w photo. I really like this. Janet Posted: 10:06 pm on January 1st
piecesofthepast writes: What time is it?? Time for a pat on the back! This is a sweet find. I can see how this would make a wonderful anniversary or wedding gift for someone--maybe a black and white wedding pic in there. You got lucky finding this...I had my grandmother's clock and gave it to my cousin, who never even said thanks!! Sure wish I had it back now :( Posted: 9:22 pm on January 1st
