Oversized Wall Clock Sources


Happy Monday, everyone,  I hope you all had an amazing weekend! My weekend consisted of catching up on some much needed sleep and hanging out with Paul and doing some of our regular weekend activities which includes things like going to Lowe's, tacos at the local downtown market, Saturday Redbox movie and pizza making night accompanied by one $2 crossword puzzle lottery ticket for each of us (unfortunately neither of us won). I know it doesn't sound too thrilling of a weekend, but we prefer simple weekend staples like these.  Anyone else feel the same way?   Last week I was out in OR for work and my family lives out there too so I spent my extra time hanging out with my parents, sister and brother-in-law, and canine family members.  I took a week break from the blog to spend some quality with all of them since I hadn't seen them in 3 months and I figured  you would all understand:)

Since starting my Instagram account months ago, the number one question I get regarding where I've bought something is , "where is your clock from?".  I get this question at least on a weekly basis, so I thought I would share details where I bought it along with other sources to similar looking clocks that are also more affordable.





The clock that I have in our family room is the Howard Miller Postema clock  (shown above and below) and it is 49 inches in diameter! It is certainly a statement piece, which is exactly what I wanted for this space. The wall in our living room is about 19" long and since we have cathedral ceilings the height of the wall is also rather tall. That said, I wanted just one oversized art piece for this wall and call it good. I chose this exact clock, because I loved it's size, the fact that it was metal, it's two toned-color, and well, I personally love clocks. My Mom also owns an oversized Howard Miller clock that I have adored for years, so I've always wanted one myself. Normally, my husband wouldn't be okay in spending several hundred dollars on something that hangs on the wall, but this was the one piece that I had my heart set on before even moving into the house and I was able to justify the purchase once we received money for Christmas from my parents this past year and this is what we decided to get with it. You can purchase the Howard Miller Postema clock from many different distributors, but I chose to buy it from Bed Bath & Beyond so that I could use a 20% coupon on it. 


I realize, however, that the price tag is quite a bit high on the one that I own so below I have listed out similar ones that have a more affordable price tag. This first one on the list looks by far the most similar. If I had seen this first one on the list when I went to purchase our clock, I might have bought it because it looks almost the same and it's a lot more affordable. 















If you would like to follow along and stay up to date on more of my home decor, DIY, lifestyle and other posts, I'd love to have you follow me along on any of the following:

    1. Yes, I think you should!! Then again, my opinion is probably pretty biased;)
