Turning back the clock

This clock found its way from a old cargo ship, through Bangladesh and into my dining room via the Pretty Dandy Flea (where it was traded in exchange for a Circus Triangles Cushion).

It was made in 1982 and when the ship was dismantled, it was one of the lucky parts to be salvaged. It used to be wired up to captain's clock, to make sure all the clocks on the ship told the same time as the ship passed through different time zones. Now it will serve the important task of overseeing our breakfast and helping us get to school on time. Isn't it beautiful?

Talking of clocks, I'll be turning back time this weekend at the Victorian Market. I already have my corset ready. Although I may have to stop eating and breathing to squeeze into it.

And there's still time to enter my competition to win a copy of the fabulous 20 Crafty Makes book and the original Reinbin stamp. As some people have had trouble logging in to leave a comment on the blog, you can now also enter by leaving a comment on the Butterscotch & Beesting Facebook page. So if that's easier, head on over there and say a little something about the competition.

More details here.

The deadline for entries is 9pm on Sunday 2 December.
