  1. Wow Lora, it’s beautiful. Love all the junky bits that you added. It’s definitely a work of art now. So cool

      Thanks, Michelle! Double bonus…I cleared out some things from my junk drawer:)

  2. I love this idea and the story also. I need to figure out how to make one because I bet they are hard to find. I love all of the bits and pieces you put in it also. It turned out great.

      Thanks, Debra! Good luck on the junk hunt!

  3. That looks great! I also loved the idea of a backdrop for a wreath!

      Thanks, Tania! I think a pretty green wreath would look awesome with a cool, architectural wood backdrop! Guess I’ll have to go hunting for another, right;)?

    Love this idea, need to dig my printers box out of the storage shed. I also like the clock. Would you mind sharing where you found it?

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Janet, my mom gave it to me years ago from Restoration Hardware. Definitely go dig out your printer’s drawer and give it a little freshening up; then you can enjoy it a whole new way!

  5. What a great backdrop for your clock. I looked at every single space! I’m glad you explained about why you left a few empty caz I wanted something in each square! I love E6000 for all kinds of projects. I’ve never seen a clock like that’ I like it; I had an old oven timer I’d set for 20 min. of chores, piano practice, kids’ reading, timeout, etc.

      My mom gifted me with this Restoration Hardware clock years ago and I still love it! Think I should set the timer for myself sometimes! I’m excited to see what future junk items I can come up with for the empty spaces; gives me a reason to keep hunting!

  6. This is super clever! I love it! You’re a person after my own heart figuring out an ingenious way to use all those interesting bits of junk. That’s exactly what I save my junk for!

      Thanks, Florence! I want to see it and enjoy it on a daily basis, not have it hiding in a “some day” drawer!

      Oh, thanks, Linda. You know us former sellers still have plenty of junk laying around!
