When Time Stood Still

Welcome to another Show & Tell day! Thank you to all who left sweet comments last week on my blog.

I thought I'd share with you a sentimental idea that could be done with different pictures around your house. Below is the hospital photo of our first born daughter. I found a small clock at an estate sale and set the time at exactly the moment she came into this world, 2:09 p.m. to be exact.



I did the same for our second daughter born at exactly 7:47 p.m. using an old pocket watch. I display them in the entertainment center in the family room. (picture below)



They are setting on the shelves to the left.

You could do this with a wedding photo or any special occasion. I hope you have enjoyed your visit and have a great weekend.

What a great idea! My kids always ask me what time they were born. So they know officially when they turn a certain age.

I love that tv cabinet!

That is a great idea..Sometimes I see old clocks that I just love but I'm not sure if they work. Buy with six children I can put the clocks to use. Thank you.
