My long time followers know my history with cuckoo clocks right? For those of you who are new around here you can read about my history with cuckoo clocks HERE. They were obviously why I named my blog Cuckoo4Design.

I get so many questions about the ones I have, especially the one in our living room. And I’m sure you are getting sick of hearing from me that I found stuff for really cheap, but that’s exactly what happened here again. I found the clock on Craigslist for $25. It’s not handmade but was made in Korea of all places. I don’t care though. It’s a lovely clock and I still love the fact that I painted it white.

For all you new folks around here, in addition to the big white one, I also have a brown expensive clock in my son’s room and a gold glitter cuckoo clock in my daughter’s room.

Since I get so many questions about it, I thought todays post about my favorite light colored cuckoo clocks would be fitting. And I do have to say I’m in love with the maple versions.

Which one is your favorite?


I barely ever share fashion here but today I just have to throw something in really quick because I love it so much.

I bought a dress in this shape last year at the beach and wore it non-stop all summer long. So comfy and pretty and perfect for hot summer days. Then I found and bought the above dress yesterday. It has tassels!!! (click HERE or on photo)


If you follow me on Instagram then you might have seen in my stories that I feel pretty hard while going for a run. Our sidewalks are really uneven and I tripped on an unloved piece of concrete. I was so happy that I didn’t break anything but also really mad at the township for never fixing this stuff. Now my hands all all bandaged up and I’m sick of exercising. I have to try to finally get going with my fireplace mantel though. I hope my hands and shoulder heal fast. Wish me luck
