~just call me a copy cat!~

above photo taken last year on a sunny day..
On my down time
I love to sit & read at this table in my side yard.

dark cloudy morning in Ohio
like my clock?

studio clock
Well just call me a copy cat!
I was visiting Jackie at
and loved her idea about her outside clock..
so I plucked the clock off my studio room wall
ran outside clock, hammer, nail, (and camera) in hand
and added my studio clock to my fence..
now the only problem is
when I look up to check the time here in my studio theres no clock.
I could just check time on my computer but that's to easy.
now I'm off to find a clock to put up where the old one was..
Gee am I doing this a bit back word?
Oh well that's just me.. LOL..
have a beautiful day!

What a wonderful place to sit and read. Don't know about the clock though because if you know the time you might have to get up and go do something you don't really want to.!!!LOL something like cleaning - reading in the sun is much more fun

Copy cat! LOL Love the side yard! The plate edging on the plantings is so cute!

Tammy said...

We're all copy cats here in Blogland...but isn't that the best form of flattery~~wink~~wink~~ that clock you put out there a true "outdoor" clock...I would hate to see it damaged by the weather. There are clocks in the gardening sections that are made for outdoors.

Oh...and love that dish border!!☼

I love your plates and cups and all used like this! Reminds me of The Pottery Shack in Laguna Beach, CA when I was a kid. They nailed plates and cups to trees and fences etc. Love your shelf idea too! I would love to copy you--someday! Beautiful!

Cathy ♥

Mary said...

Hello Sweet Friend, I Love your yard with all the plates and cups!!!Your clock looks like it has always been there:)I would like to put plates for a border too, except for the weeds:)But it is too Hot for me!!!!
What a Wonderful Place to sit and have ice tea and read...guess I will just have to come see you some day:)
Have a great week. Love,Mary:)

What fun to have a clock outside and I loved the cups hanging on the rack on the fence. I might just have to "borrow" that brainstorm...yipeee!

Lori said...

Oh your plates are adorable! I have never regreted using mine either, except some neighbors think I am freakin weird! I have salad size in the side bed, which I need more and small saucer size in back. When dear son occasionally runs one over I tuck the cracked pieces around the flowers. I really like the ones on the fence! Now I have to do some of those next year. You know what is really cool looking out side is mirrors! I am going to put one up next summer at the very back of my yard and glow something tall under it to hit the bottom of the frame. later,Lori

You have the cutest yard ! ! !
How do you keep the teapot and other stuff from blowing off and getting broken ? ?

Stephanie ~ Angelic Accents said...

Hi Mary! Your yard is just as adorable as your cottage!! Love it all. Tell me, what keeps everything from blowing away?

Big Hugs,
Angelic Accents

Brenda said...

Well, that's what everyone does. Why else would we buy magazines if we didn't get to copy what someone else already thought of! I know I do!


I always adore your side yard. Lovely and so sweet. The china put out there is such a dainty touch, love the look Mary. Sending you hugs and the best well wishes!

Jackie said...

I love your side yard.....and you will love the clock outside.

I am not too sure if my clock outside is really an outside clock, but it is still going strong after 3 years. Believe me when it got to -42 the first winter I was a bit worried. Now it's more like "Hmmm, when will the battery wear down?"

God bless.
