Grandpa's Grandfather Clock

It's a Heirloom Party and I'm sharing a special heirloom that stands in my living room. In my Grandpa's retirement he would spend time in a small shed/workshop in his backyard. He enjoyed working with wood and building things. He made many things , but for a few years he just made clocks. I am very lucky to own the largest clock he ever made and a Fiddle clock too.

Today I share Grandpa's Grandfather clock...He even painted the face. He signed each clock he made with a pretty stone to dot the 'i".

His name was John Hill.

Be sure to see other wonderful heirlooms today at Marie's Heirloom Party by clicking on the button in my side bar.

and I win!!!

WOW! WOW! WOW! Between the Christmas in July Party, that Maggi at Just Add Glitter and Stir hosted and my 200th Post Giveaway on a Pink Saturday, I have met so many new bloggers in the past week. It's a good thing I have to go to work....or I would just spend my days visiting with all my new friends online.In the beginning I was blogging along with a few, posting and learning how to upload pictures, add links, make a side bar and even comment on others blogs.
As I marched into the unknown a few began to follow. My posts got longer/bigger and I hope more interesting. I know I got more confident with the process.
Joining in on Pink Saturdays with Beverly at How Sweet the Sound opened my eyes to the power of the blogging community. Hundreds of bloggers enjoying weekly posts , but also sharing, supporting and encouraging each others efforts. Our lives are so similar....families, dreams, obstacles, victories and disappointments. Thank goodness for blogs!
Now the pressure is really on for me to post on a regular basis, to be creative with each post, to raise the bar and visit each of you from time to time. Good thing I usually do better under pressure....lets see if that pays off with blogging.
Anyway....I'm so excited to tell you a new blogger won my giveaway.

She wins the assortment of goodies put together from HiHo. However I'm the real winner with all these new online friends. Congrats to Cindy and lucky me!!!
P.S., I attemped to link Maggi, Beverly and Cindy, but Blogspot seems to be having a problem tonight. I recommend finding them in the comments on my Givaway Post. Heidi
