Thank you, Liz! This photo was taken at the home of a couple that owns some lovely furniture and decorative items. At the top of the clock, near the finial, there is a little resin mouse placed for effect...so cute...Hickory Dickory Dock! ;o)

Connie...Lindley, thank you very much for your kind comments. There was soft afternoon light coming in through a south-facing window when I took the photo. Experimenting with textures is new to me, and I'm having great fun!

A beautiful "old-time" feel to this wonderfully composed capture, Joanna - excellent use of textures to accomplish that "feel" - hard to believe you are new at this - you're a natural for it!
