Cow Clock for the Kitchen


A green perspex clock from a creative community, the Karoo Lifestyle Centre. Our house interior is painted in a soft silver grey and this clock simply pops on the kitchen wall - is also the exact same colour as the tablecloth on the prep table. The kitchen appliances are black and the cupboards white. It is reflection that you see on the clock, blame the photographer!


The house we now live in belonged to two Swedish bachelor brothers who lived here for 60 long years!  When they relocated to a retirement village (they are in their late 80's and early 90's), they were so kind as to make a few items available for sale. Apart from a fabulous Swedish fold up table that they brought over from Stockholm, I bought the below butter maker, enamel goodies, tray and coasters and wooden spoons from them. I am not a collector of old kitchen goodies under normal circumstances, but these somehow suited the character of the house very well. I blend this with white porcelain, white ceramics and raw wooden bowls to create an eclectic table.





Now I am going to enjoy coffee and shortbread decorated with a hooky flower.  Whoever made this shortbread clearly understands the need of a hooker! Cheers!
