Many of you have asked where in the world I've been.

All I know is that after 7 plus years of blogging and a different lappy, which I don’t like, I seem to have lost my blogging fervor.

Someday, when you least expect it, I will post again.

For those of you still waiting I say thank you.

Meanwhile, I am rather prolific on twitter. Find me: @KeethaB

"Unboxing" In My City


A while back it was all the rage to make "unboxing" posts. I haven't seen any in a few years.

You're about to see one now.

This box arrived in the mail FOR ME today!

I tore right into it and - - -

Threw the stuffing on the floor.

Hey, there's a crossword in there!

Maybe I'll do it later.

I found a little card which confirmed my suspicion of what it was!

Can you guess yet???

A mantle clock from my Wisconsin bloggy buddy Cindy!!!
She had a give-away on her blog and I won.

Her hubby Dan had his students make these in Building Trades Class.

It even has a cute little drawer.

Only one problem - - - I DON'T HAVE A MANTLE!!!!

But I do have an entertainment center.

I LOVE the clock up there.

Too bad I can't see the little drawer - - -

But I think it is the "just right topper" anyway!!!


Thanks to Unknown Mami for hosting

My City is Wisconsin Rapids, Wisconsin

Oh lucky you! It looks great up there.

Vidya Sury said...

Gorgeous clock! Congrats, Keetha. It looks beautiful. Love boxed presents - it is such fun to unpack them! I have an old pendulum clock that doesn't work :D but it still sits on the wall because it belongs there. Great place to hide keys.

StarTraci said...

Yay! Super cool win of a very pretty clock! Happy Sunday!

Packages are always fun, whatever your age. I have a Christmas (!) package that just arrived at the main post office in Tegucigalpa. I can't wait to see what it is.

Patti @ Pandoras Box said...

This is beautiful, it resembles a Stickley clock (which has become a standard "wedding gift" for me to give as of late) How about if you place a book under it to raise it a bit and then you can see the drawer? Looks great up there - what a fabulous giveaway you won!!

Linda @ A La Carte said...

Perfect win for you! Love the clock and your right I haven't seen an 'unpacking' post in awhile...maybe you will bring it all back! hugs, Linda

tinajo said...

Congrats - looks very cute there! :-)

Haha, yes - my slippers are the first thing I put on when at home, they are so comfy! Maybe I have to get pajamas pants too..! :-D

Hi Keetha,
So glad it made it there safely! And it looks perfect there too!
We spent the weekend at 3 Bears Lodge in Warrens, Wisc. (near Tomah) for a family Christmas.
Enjoy your Sunday!

Brenda said...

I love home-crafted items, makes it that much more special. Looks great where you put it.
Great week to ya! said...

That is a gorgeous little clock and you found the perfect spot for it!

Thanks, Keetha, for the scoop on my blog post. I had so many problems with the link, I ended up accidentally posting it two more times. Oops.

Have a great week.

Lisa said...

WOW! Lucky you!!! It looks like it was made just for you and it looks perfect there.

Yay!!! YOU!!!

Claudya Martinez said...

What a great thing to teach students to make. I love it.

nancygrayce said...

That's a beautiful clock. The kids did a wonderful job.

Jeanne said...

Keetha, I am late with my comment but life has been busy here with company for the past two weeks. thank you for your comment about my cracker jars. They are a very special part of my kitchen. I use every one of them. I envied them too when my Aunt had them on her counter many years ago.

Your winning clock is beautiful and I like it on the entertainment center. Lucky you. That is an awesome giveaway.
Hugs, Jeanne

Congrats! And it is very cute! Perfect spot for it!

Sorta Southern Single Mom said...

What a sweet gift. The clock face reminds me of the clock my grandparents used to keep on the top of their TV...they didn't have a mantel either!

Debby@Just Breathe said...

Now that was a great giveaway. I love the clock. Congratulations!

May said...

Thank you so much for stopping by and the wonderful compliment on the blog header. Much appreciated!!!
I have never participated in give aways, but I can imagine the sheer excitement you felt while tearing at that box...:D
Love the clock, especially the fact that they are specially made. I always have a soft corner for hand work!!! Maybe this will motivate you enough to go and get a mantle!!!!

Catching up on your posts. My parents used to ask the same question about where I was born.

What was that referring to? I was thinking I maybe had left the door open ... but now am wondering if it was my actions they were commenting on. :-)

Martin LaBar said...

It looks well made.

SixBalloons said...

oooh that is one gorgeous clock! And to win it as part of a giveaway makes it even sweeter!

Wow, what a wonderful win!
