Presents to myself

  I have always had a thing for clocks.  Just love them.  So today I bought myself another one.   I wanted a Westminster Clock for the longest time and I got a great deal on this Regulator.  Fresh from the clock man and making the prettiest chime.



     Isn't it cool.  And here is the picture of my new paperweight that looks like a marble.....but isn't.

I just love chiming clocks.  The noise maker in my mantle clock went kaput and I had to turn it off.  I really miss it.  One of these days I will get it fixed.  Your Regulator is a very nice clock.

I used to have a clock like that. My ex husband has it now <sigh>. I have wanted to get a new one. I love it!
Love the paperweight, too! You're right it looks just like a marble. Very pretty.

I just love clocks also.  My dad bought my ex and I a key wind school house clock years ago.  The chimes need repaired but I just love it.  Love your new marble also.  I was sorry to see that the eagles lost their eggs.  I thought they seemed like they were away from the nest quite a bit.  Chris

I am into clocks too Julie.  This one of yours is lovely.  Have you noticed how the two and the seven can be turned upside down to become one or the other?  The same with the nine and and the six.  Unusual !
Love your paper weight.  You are right it is like a marble.
