Photo Frame Clock

February 26, 2009

Well hickory dickory dock… this clock sure is sweet! You can totally let your creative juices flow with the Passe-Partout photo frame clock where you can fill these frames with prints, cards, photographs, found items, scraps of vintage wallpaper and gift wrap to create your own unique look. Darling!

Get yours online at Dutch by Design for $65 which includes all 12 frames and the center timepiece with arms. Isn’t this cool? I think it’s fun and I imagine it working in a craft room or a home office because it will keep you on schedule while giving you a new way to display all of those Etsy prints you love!

    That rocks. Seriously one of the coolest things I’ve seen in a long time.

    Do you just wave a magic wand and wait for the wonderful things to appear?

    great idea. thanks for sharing this link. you know why I am really thinking of doing something on my own … I am thinking of a 12 photo frame with a different photo for each hour (in different frame style) related to the specific hour (mixing the am and pm activities) … Ok you need an exemple

    1 h : a pic of my husband and I ‘s sleepy head or a after lunch – coffee drinking pic
    7h : : a pic related w/ breakfast or a little doggie walk pic
    9h : a pic while eating, chatting (as we do each evening with my husband …wait a minute …as I do … my husband is mostly …listening …)

    well …you get the idea …

    I’ll send you a pic when done

    btw WONDERFUL work you do :)

    This is so wonderful! I’ve had a clock obsession lately, too. Now, where do I have a spare wall that I can do this? hmmm…

    Wow, that set up is totally cute!!


  • Reply Katrina Lynn February 26, 2009 at 3:38 pm

    Yeah! I have one of these in my home too! …well not the exact same one, but something similar and I use portraits instead of prints, so Mom is 1, BFF is 6, boyfriend is 9, etc. etc. I love it and am constantly changing out the pictures! I’m moving right now, but maybe I will send a photo once it gets put back up in its new home! :) I love how this one looks like it has shadow box frames, gives me the idea to put objects and mementos in as well. hmm…

    NOW this is sooooo CUTE! I think I will be buying one….but I wish they would show what the all white ones would look like…just to get a better visual of it. I need something to place in my family room behind my tv – this would probably fill the space. I didnt see any measurements though hmmmm

    This is so great. I love the mix of frames but would love to see it in a really sleek way, too–with similar frames or black & white photography…

    This clock is indeed “CUTE” and I’m crazy for the wall color and how it makes all the colors pop. It’s perfection.

    We think that your clock looks very nice. We sell clocks that you can put the pictures into and see them.

    Phwoar. I’d been looking at the cheapy Family Photo Clocks that you can get for about £20, but this one is seriously tempting..
