MY MORA CLOCK-She arrived!

I waited for over a month to receive my shipment, but it was well worth the wait. After Mora clocks took the decorating world by storm, I knew it was a piece I had to own! I started my serious hunt for one and even shopped around while we were in Sweden last year, but shipping was crazy high and seemed impossible to find a shipper who would take it all the way from the Dalarna area in Sweden to Germany!

Now she is here and she is lovely! Almost a year later in my hunt for one, but I am completely satified. I knew when I bought it that I may paint it, and I still might do that, but for now, I am going to leave her stand in all her glory in my corner. Occasionally, actually more than that, I will find myself just staring at her!

I actually have a dealer that won one at auction for me, but I have to come up with the money to buy it before she will ship it!! She is going to hold it for me until then, which I thought was rather sweet! This one that will be coming is white already!!!! My brown one works, but it is quite delicate and touchy and I understand completely why most business put in a quarty movement, rather than the weights!!! I do like to hear her chime though.

Hi Andrea - What a beauty!! How exciting to finally get what you have been longing for.
I gotta tell ya...I am good friend's with your husband's oldest sister, Dawn :)
I was thrilled when Phyllis sent me her annual Christmas letter and shared your website. It's been a long time since I saw Scott (he was a kid!!) he may not even remember me, but I was so excited to hear about your love of vintage and to find your website. We love many of the same things.
Take Care!
Tammy :)

Rachel said... So jealous you have a Mora! It's beautiful!!

I also checked out your pics on face book. What a cute memory/chalk board you made!! You're a girl after my own heart!!

At last you have one, I have been keeping my eye out for one for you here but they seem very rare here and the clock guy that I told you about at Christmas only deals in English clocks so no luck with him. Looking forward to your collection growing and maybe owning one myself! Love you x
