A pretty Mora wall clock

The white painted staircase, the cow painting,
 the bucket of garden flowers and of course, a Mora clock.
*********
This photo was taken by Heather Bullard, and I have always loved it.
But I recall reading something more about this house...
who lives here, or maybe it was about who painted the cow...
if you know anything I would be glad if you could share.
*****
Ever since I saw Brooke Giannetti's mora clock 
I wanted one.  Such a pretty graceful shape!
These two photos are similar in that they have 
white painted stairs and vintage furnishings
in addition to the clocks.  Brookes version is creamier,
the first version is pure white~both stunning.
Now this miniature mora clock is for sale in my online
I have one in my living room finally and love the look.
Are you a Mora clock fan?

  2. I love them..although I did not know the actual name for them. For some reason they always make me think of Alice In Wonderland and have a bit of sweet magic attached to them. So, did you order one? xo Diana

  3. I am a hopeless Scandinavian tall case clock fan. I've read books and put my nose against magazine articles hoping to reproduce one. Sadly they are so finely crafted in a difficult manner (circles & curves) I can't touch them. (I don't call them Mora clocks because I read many clocks of this style come from Mora in Sweden but not all.)

    You can take any room and place one of these in and BLAMMO you've got style and vertical void filled.

  4. Those are so pretty Amy. I remember you showing that photo before of the entry with the big clock but you were talking about another subject. The lines on these are so graceful!
    Enjoy your weekend!

  9. Hi Amy,
    I'm glad you found one that you like. When I see these clocks I always think of Scandanavian style decor. I'm sure it will look perfect in your home.

  11. You mean you're getting the exact clock in that photo? Boy are you lucky! I have your answer as to whose house that is. That is Leah Anderson's home. She is the artist that paints those cow pics. Her home was featured in Flea Market Magazine and I have that issue. That is why I instantly knew who it was. I ADORE her house. It's all white and beachy and farmhousey at the same time. It's full of eye candy but not over the top. If you haven't seen it, you would love it. I think if you google her name you can find the article. LOVE - LOVE - LOVE that clock and I'm JEALOUS! Ha! Can't wait to see it in your home.

  13. Oh Amy...that clock will look absolutely wonderful in your home!
    I would never be able to afford one, but did find a similar one recently, and love it. I don't know where to put it, though. My hubby suggested the stairway...hey, he's smarter than I thought LOLOLOL!!
    I'm anxious to see where you place yours.

  16. Amy, I also love Mora Clocks. One Kings lane (see my sidebar) has some from Evergreen on sale now. Regular $799 for $299. I am so tempted! Hugs, Sherry

  17. All Mora clock fans: Hurry! One Kings Lane is offering three today. The prices are excellent but the extra shipping charge is steep. After much research on Mora clocks, I strongly recommend Lone Ranger Antiques. Besides having the largest selection of clocks and Scandinavian antiques, Jeffrey is incredibly nice and helpful and his prices are excellent. Google Lone Ranger Antiques and check out his appearance on Martha Stewart's show.

  18. Hi Amy,
    I love mora clocks. I would love to own a real one someday. I do have the same one pictured in the photo of Leah Andersons's house. She also has a beautiful mirror in her bathroom that I love. If you go to her blog or website she has the most wonderful clothing as well that she designs. Leah is a very talented girl. Can't wait to see where you put your clock. I have mine in the kitchen nook area.

  23. Hey! I don't have one of those spiffy swedish looking thingies, but you've just made me remember a wooden hanging clock i have stashed in my basement! When I come back to Ma. I am going to unwrap it and maybe paint it, and then make you look at it and tell me how great I am!
    I can't believe you have any more room in your house for more stuff!!! You go girl!

  28. I love that style of clock and haven't ever heard the term "Mora." I am always learning something from you. Can't wait to see the one you are getting. I think I want a cow painting like the one in your first photo... there is something about cows (and pigs) I find irresistable.

  30. Yes, I just LOVE Mora clocks!

    I've been reading your blog for awhile now and I love your taste and home. I've been with Betsy since the beginning too and think of y'all as friends, even though I've never met you. Kindred spirits or something like that??

    But anyway, the other day I posted a blog about loving Mora clocks and re-creating one. I'm a brand new blogger and just loving it but if you're interested the link is here.

    Keep up the beautiful blogs, I love every one of them!
