After dragging it roughly across the floor and standing it on carpet, not tiles, it started to go again and is happily ticking and striking away. All the clock needed was a change of scene. The clock changed places with the small china cabinet I have had for years, which doesn't hold much china at all.
Below is the new cabinet which caused all the fuss but now allows my Royal china to spread out a bit and also fixed the clock-what a bargain.
My very large china cabinet, would love more of this type if I had the space (and money)
My Royal thimbles below. I have collected thimbles for years but the ones next to the clock are not Royal.
Red sky in the morning - shepherds warning.
That old saying did not hold true, Saturday's sky was very red and Sunday was a hot, horrible day with hot wind. But it is now the time of year for beautiful sunsets so be prepared to be bored by more. Some boats can be seen on the lake enjoying the sunset and some last minute fishing.
