@DANGAB33, i'm not sure if this answers your question. unless the clock has been hung wonky, it should read just like any other clock. so the one in the picture says about 10 past 3. just ignore the white pattern behind and pretend like the numbers are in their normal places.

i'm obsessed with clocks. i'd have one on every wall if i had my way, but the price tags can be prescriptive, so thanks for this! i made a clock from a bicycle chainring when i was at uni, but maybe it's time to add something more (grown up?) to the collection?? hmmmm....

oh i love this, but then i'm already a fan of pink in the hallway!! ;0)

however, i also agree that a less shiny paint might have worked better and i probably would have left the ceiling white too.

YES! perfect timing AT!

hi all, my name is shel and i'm a... lawyer. so, while i'm sure i'd have plenty of crazy tales to tell if they weren't all confidential, i have absolutely no outlet for my creativity in my day job. none.

my husband suggested i blog. i thought it was daft. who would want to read it? why write something that no one wants to read? can i write about anything... and everything? should posts be sagas or snippets? same issues y'all seem to have been battling with. not to mention i used up over 1% of my storage space in my first day before husband pointed out i had to resize photos! oops.

well, here's my little piece of the interwebs for what it's worth. pop on over for a look around. it has been wonderful getting a glimpse into your worlds. @urbancricket, i want your monkey!!
