'A change is as good as a holiday!'

They say a change is as good as a holiday. I think that even applies to small homely changes, like moving the furniture around, or changing the colour scheme of a room. We have lived in our home for nearly seven years now, and there is one wall that has looked the same for all that time. It's a tall wall, the wall that one faces as you walk up the stairs. Hubby has had a favourite fisherman's clock hung on that wall, and we adored it when we first bought it. However, as time passes, one gets tired of staring at the same old thing day in and day out. I, for one, definitely fancied a change. Don't get me wrong, there is absolutely nothing wrong with my other half's beloved clock, but it does remind me of an English pub! So, I have taken it off the wall...brave, I know, as hubby might not approve of the change, but I'll remind him that I am the Homemaker...hee-hee...Thankfully, he lets me do whatever I want! After all, he has slept in a very feminine pink bedroom for most our married life, and hasn't complained too much!

Here is the old Fisherman's clock...

So for now it is 'auf wiedersehn', 'totsiens', goodbye to our little Huckleberry Finn...that's who this clock reminds me of. And the new wall?

A new clock found at a bargain price in the sale...

I loved the words on it...

Some flirty butterflies...
I made this after receiving a similar picture from a friend for my birthday, which has pride of place in our kitchen. I thought I'd have a go too...

And of course a cheeky little mouse in a tea cup! I made this a couple of weeks ago. He reminds of the nursery rhyme 'Hickory dickory-dock...' Maybe if he escapes from the tea cup, he'll be running up the clock!

And the new clock wall...Ta-dah! Let's hope hubby likes it. He hasn't seen it yet, but he will when he gets home from work! Fingers crossed...and toes...

Hope you're well wherever you are! Thanks for stopping by!

Blessings, Tania ♥
