White "Thursday?"

I thought I was only joking, several weeks ago, when I said I was so late for White Wednesday that it might as well be "Black Friday!"  
Yes....I'm late!
"Why," you might ask? Because of this.....

"Time"

I let it get away from me.


I didn't have as  much of it as I had thought.

It "flew"right by me...



...and I didn't use it wisely.



It was not well spent.


I needed more of it.



"How rapidly time urges his flight; sometimes as a relentless, unsparing destroyer; but oftener as a swift-winged and beautiful angel: changing, yet not taking away this world's blessings: making our past sorrows look dim in the distance; opening many flowers of pleasure on our way, and gradually ripening our souls for the great eternity."

~William Chambers, September 22, 1921

Happy belated White Wednesday mes amies.

  13. Its "Hazy shade of winter" in my head, lol

    I think we all understand how time is flying these days. Not much left in between waking up and falling asleep anymore.

    Love your collection of vintage clocks. Now you need to set all of those load clacking alarms as not to be late to a very important date...wait that was Alice.

  19. It really is about time! You have finally posted something....and I'm here to gobble it all up. Such a beautiful and timeless collection of vintage clocks! I love them all.
    Too bad that we couldn't actually buy more time, just by buying clocks, eh!

    Gorgeous!

  21. Hi Michelle,
    It gets away fast, doesn't it? Sometimes I feel like the calender spins on me like in those old black and white movies! But I really think the more you enjoy something in life, the faster it goes by. It's really bittersweet isn't it?
    Have a beautiful weekend, I am sure it will be gone before we know it! LOL

  30. Time gets away from us all. Every day I say to myself that I am going to take the time to do a new post but I always seem to run out of time. And it has been over two weeks sense my last post. I would love to do a post every day but it just dosen't happen. But I will keep trying. Have a wonderful weekend. Rebecca
