~The Hands Of Time~

As the hands of time approach the New year with new hopes and dreams. Tallulah and us would like to wish you all a healthy and prosperous New Years to come.

I thought the vintage French ladies watches and the other two are German makers. Would look great to use for this special occasion along with a rose from the garden on this warm winters day. With the weather being so nice and warm theses past couple of days the roses decided to give us a late Christmas gift.

Just a small collection of vintage ladies watches found on our travels and flea markets here in So Cal.

I wonder what stories they have from first dates and marriages and as gifts from a loving family member. What beautiful mementos of a time gone by.

Some of them have the ladies name engraved on the back of them. Such as "Helen" "Constance" and a real old fashioned name as " Mary Rose".

The pocket watch is dated 1921 on the inside of the case. I sure do enjoy and treasure theses beautiful keepsakes of the past.

Thank You all for stopping by this evening and wishing you and your family a joyous New Year to come.................Tallulah

  4. My father collected clocks and now I enjoy them too - something calm and serene about them.
    Many new year blessings!

  5. These are so wonderful. Tallulah!'Thanks so much for linking up and sharing them. My mother just gave me her high school graduation gift
    which was a pink gold small ladies watch. Believe it or not.... it still works!

    She is now 79 and I cherish every little thing she gives me.
