Wall Clocks - Interior Decorating Ideas

Decorate your space with a large wall clock.  Choose a variety of styles and group them together on a feature wall.  Or shop for one large clock and use it as your feature.  

In the room design bellow, you will see a vintage style clock with exposed gears, this is the wall feature.  I have added complementary clocks to the wall and boxed them in with a chair rail.  The arrangement makes the room look interesting. Do you agree?

While shopping online I found some wall clocks that would complement a traditional-themed home or office. For the person who likes texture, I think the faux leather clocks are interesting in the square shape. 

Modern clocks with vintage clock gears will appeal to the person who likes the steampunk or antique decorations and the landscape or animal clocks will make the room feel cozy.

Here are a few of my favorite online wall clock finds.

Zazzle Summer Fun Flip Flops – Pink Floral

Summer is finally here and it is time to put away the closed-toe shoes and slip on a pair of flip flops. Flip flops are the summer shoe that makes casual outfits look super cute.

Recently I was shopping for a gift and knew that the recipient wanted a pink floral pattern flip flop. I found many floral strap flip flops but none came in the pink color. The gift had to be a pink flower pattern to go with her beach outfits.

Zazzle has summer fun flip flops in a variety of pink designs. The 100% rubber shoe are not like the ones you find at the drug store, instead, they have a thick insole with more cushion for comfort. The straps on this shoe are thin and made for a women’s food.

You can choose between two different footbeds and from a variety of strap colors. Buy the flip-flop shown or you can make your own from uploading a photograph. There is a flip-flop for everyone, kids, men, and women. If you are heading for the beach, lake or even the pool this summer then check out the flip flops sold at Zazzle.

I bought this pink floral flip flop because the pink color was exactly the shade that was desired and the print offered a good balance of the white color.

Shipping was quick, received in under ten days. Now the recipient of this shoe has a narrow foot but told me that she could size down from a 7 ½ to a 7 medium and it will fit fine. I ordered the 7 and hoped it would fit since no widths were offered.  This particular shoe runs wide and is not intended for someone with a narrow to medium foot. I think it would perfect for someone with a true medium to wide foot.  

If you love the flip flops and you have a narrow to medium foot then I would recommend sizing down. The shoe may fit you so I would recommend that you buy and try it on. You can always exchange or return, Zazzle has award winning customer service.

Womens' Columbia Omni Shade Shirt Review

When putting outfits together for outdoor activities during the summer months I always shop for women's Omni-shade clothing by Columbia. I like the quality made clothing that offers UPF 30 sun protection.  The Columbia Omni-shade line of clothing does not wrinkle and I never feel overheated no matter what I am doing outdoors; gardening, hiking, or running errands.

Here is an outfit that I put together with a plaid pattern Omni-shade shirt by Columbia. Note the sleeves are rolled up and are kept in place with a button holder.

Style and Size

The Omni-Shade Shirt by Columbia comes in a variety of colors and prints. When shopping online for this shirt I have bought the plaid and other printed shirts. I like prints because their color patterns are cute. I tend to shop for the colors blue and pink or the mint and pink prints and basic solid colors.

The cut is feminine and semi-fitted. Last year I bought 2 of these shirts in a size medium and they fit fine everywhere except my bust. The buttons pulled. I eliminated this fit concern by wearing a camisole under the shirt which enabled me to leave this button open.

This year I bought the shirt in a size large and the overall fit is not as fitted and the buttons in the bust area do not pull. My husband says the shirt looks fine, but a little boxy.  If your bra cup size is a C then size up.

Wear the shirt untucked because the cut of this shirt hits high hip and if you tucked it in then it would come untucked quickly.

Caring for Shirt

Machine launder shirt in delicate clothing cycle, cold water and use no chlorine bleach. I do not put in the dryer, instead I hang and let it "air dry"
