I'm in love!!! If y'all have been over on IG, you'll know that I've been saying that all day!! The reason of course is my Grandmother Clock made her debut & after cherishing her for a few days to myself, it was time to share her & let her shine! Haha I even have 2 posts for her!! & of course my morning story was about her.
I had been looking for one for awhile & just couldn't seem to find one, either the price was outrageous or too far. But, last week on Facebook Marketplace there she was!! She had been there for apparently a week & I hadn't seen her. She was close by, in my city & only $65!! I messaged the lady & made arrangements for me to pick her up on Sunday morning. Yasss I set my alarm so I could wake up early & drove in my 4 door Acura to get her. I knew that I needed to go alone, as this was going to be such a moment for us. So there I went & of course half of her didn't fit!! But the kind lady's husband said he would would strap her down & secure her. Off we went the 9 miles slowly & oh so carefully down the main street half way hanging out but it was the best slow ride ever home. She finally arrive home to Country Chic Homes!!
I knew I was going to chalk paint her white & add some wax to give her the vintage touch. She came kinda was yellowish, cream & beige with flowers all on the front of her & on the face. I let her be for a day, & on Monday I got to work & gave her a new dress. I kept her face just as she came, one cause I wanted to keep something original & also I had no idea how to paint with out going over the numbers.
She works, I am still trying to figure out her chime, I'm close but I got her moving!! She's Pulaski & I have all of her paperwork, so just figuring it all out. I tagged Facebook Marketplace & they commented & liked & loved her!!
I'll say it again!! I'm so in love with her & in her story debut of course I had the song th Beauty & The Beast as she reminds me so much of the movie.
Thank you so much for being here with me today on such a special day!! I absolutely appreciate you!!
