Faire Houre

Although clocks by the Faire Houre collection are starting to make their blog rounds, I have to give them a nod as I find their clocks lovely and their styling impeccable. They make me want to buy a few, especially since I’m always trying to remember what time it is on the east and west coast now that I’m so many hours ahead of time! I finally understand those people who have 3-4 clocks in a row on their wall over their desk. I always thought it may be an attempt to look international and jet sett-y but um, it’s very practical.

About these lovely plates, Faire Houre owner Jenilyn says, “I love well cared for pieces of china, they have so much history and are so unique. I can never pass one up when I come across a good find.”  I’m so glad she doesn’t!

And I’m forever messing things up as we use military time and not the standard time as I used my entire life in the states. Oh and you should have seen me during the annual fall back period. We had our hour change about 10 days or so before those in the states so I was exceptionally upside down during that period. All I can say is that when it comes to time, I could own a thousands clocks — I love them so much! And having girly china function as clocks, even better.

Faire Houre makes my ticker tock! :)

    I saw these this morning playing on Etsy/Pounce, and I wanted every single one. Looks like they are selling out quickly, and it doesn’t hurt that their photos are stunning.

    These remind me so much of the clocks my Gran made – plates with a floral edge. She made one for each of her daughters in matching patterns. Sweet. :)

    I’m on the lookout for a stylish new clock and these are all lovely. My favourite is the white/cream one with the scalloped edges. Off to investigate in more detail!

    I started collecting plates for a plate wall recently… I recognize some of these – the birds are Lenox, the reddish orange is Pier One, ….

    but the first bluish green I love but dont know… also the light one with the ivory design around the edge? Any guesses?
