Tick Tock Ya Don’t Stop

Tick Tock Ya Don’t Stop
T-i-i-i-me, why you punish me?

Like a wave crashing into the shore, you wash away my dreams.

Hmm, I just realized that Hootie’s song ‘Time’ is a bit depressing. Is there a happier song about time?  I can’t think of one now. Help me out. I’m just trying to get you in the mood for some time-themed makeovers, that’s all. Anyway, so here goes: it’s time for TIME!
Take a SECOND and check out this clock face table from
Suzy Simply Vintageous. She churns out the furniture makeovers so often I’m pretty sure she never sleeps.

And if you have a MINUTE, (heh heh, elbow nudge) here’s another one from Better After reader Shelly.  She picked this dresser up at a yard sale for $10 and drew the clock face on with a Sharpie!  That must have taken a lot of TIME.  Heh heh.  Ok, I’ll stop now.

    How about that whiny anthem, Time After Time by Cindy Lauper? Never mind.

    This is too funny – I just looked at my stats – and I thought these are way higher than normal – has someone featured me or something?
    Thanks so so much Lindsey – and Shelly’s is absolutely gorgeous!
    Big fat hugs,
    ( and no, I don’t sleep much, lol )

    How about “Time” by the Chambers Brothers? It was an anthem for the 60’s and you can see it on YouTube. Be sure to go for the long version.

    How about “Time in a Bottle”? You’re kind of young though…might have been before your time. HA! Seriously, though…I LOVE the clocks!!

    Thanks for featuring me Lindsay! I’m so flattered whenever you choose one of my pieces to post on your blog… even though, technically, they are copied from somewhere on your blog! lol
    Thank you again – very much.
