CRYSTAL DROPS and GUSTAVIAN CLOCKS ........

Don't you just love these Gustavian clocks ? I'd have one in any colour.....Oooo , this one just happens to be grey !!

Here's another one in the most wonderful house.

I arranged for the sunbeam to stream in for this photograph !


Some amazing crystal drops and Oh Grandma, what a big sofa you've got !!

.......... beautiful painted cupboard ..........

This is probably the closest I'll get to a gustavian clock. A picture of one. It still looks good though.

I love this room, don't you ?

Oh, maybe I could afford this one...






.............. and finally, a massive, neglected chandelier,
What a delightful combination crystal drops and gustavian clocks make,
Jackie.

  1. I can't believe you don't have Gustavian clocks in every room darling. I always imagine you swanning around in high heels that you keep on window frames, wearing a corset, top hat, drinking pink champagne and winding clocks up, while Roxy Music are playing in the background and swans are dancing on your lawn. tee! hee!

    It's Monday, grey wet and my imagination is in overdrive...please forgive me, you know I love you really.

    Lovely post Jackie, didn't know that type of clock actually had a name, silly me.

    Much love

    I love the rooms in #2 and #8 and the clocks are just gorgeous too.

    Thanks Jac's,
    xoxo

  4. Who can resist a beautiful chandelier! I'm trying to decide whether I should throw caution to the wind and put one of these divine things in our sitting room. If it looked half as good as these gorgeous images I'd be in seventh heaven! Leigh

  6. How dreamy are these images!
    I especially love that ray of sunshine beaming in (just what we need on such a grey day) and I just adore those crystal drops and that creamy sofa in the 5th image!
    I saw a blue Gustavian clock at last years Olympia International Arts and Antiques Fair... they are so beautiful!
    Have a great day Jackie.

  24. Hi there, gorgeous!

    You just made my evening better!
    Comming here, seing your beautiful images,reading your post...oh, Jackie, it´s like a dream world.
    Just perfect, as I ´m waiting for the spring to come...
    I´ll have to wait, for a loooong time, there is more snow comming this way.
    But I di see the light. Today I noticed , the daylight lasts a bit longer. Thats a good sign!

    I hope your computer gets better soon. And don´t worry, you didn´t miss a thing!!! =D

    Wish you a wonderful evening!

  27. I can't stop looking at that blue and cream cabinet. That is classic Scandinavian colors! at least what I used to think of as scand style! I love the lighter white just as well. It's nice to see that crystal chandeliers are so popular too. The ones you've found are the creme de la creme! sigh!!! to have one in every room would be heaven!
    We have a grandfather clock that I bought new but has never worked...haha it might as well have been a paper clock...lol
    xo,

  28. As long as we stay here in this '70's/'00's pad a chandelier will escape me. MOTH would seek legal advice if I even suggested one for these silly sloping, raked beamed ceilings. But thanks for the drool, I know I can rely on you Jac to live vicariously through.

  29. Hi Jackie,
    Don't you think that first one is just the perfect chippy grey? I could definitely find a place for that. Always, your images inspire me. Love how you got that beautiful stream of light to shine right onto the chandy.
    Maybe I'll just enlarge that picture of the clock in your first image and hang that pretty thing on my wall.
    hugs

  30. sigh........I've been DROOLING over those clocks and I'm so obsessed with chandeliers - this post is my form of perfection!!!

  32. Hello Jackie! We have such similar tastes, I know I can always come here and find drool worthy gorgeous photos!!! Thanks for the dose of inspiration!

    As for the JDL stencils...don't be afraid to try one, it's getting the stencil off in layers and ready to paint that is a little tricky, but the actual painting part is practically fail safe thanks to the adhesive backing...good luck...

  33. Okay, sweet Jackie, you've made me crave every one of these rooms--every clock and every last crystal drop. I'm feeling greedy now, but I think I'll run with it. You really do unearth some of the most glorious photos. xoxo Gigi

  34. Hey Jacqueline
    Gorgeous images.. and thanks so much for ordering the sunbeam.. you know how much i like those.. in fact.. if you could, please send said sunbeam and the chandelier over this way... I'm sure it will post flatpack...

    Gorgeous images.. each and every one... I think i am also partial to the little bit of neglect at the bottom..nothing like a good dose of neglect to make something beautiful.... xx Julie

  42. My fave? The Gustavian Grey at the top for sure xx

    ReplyDelete
  43. Jackie, all your images are pure fairy tale magic!! I can just imagine prancing, swirling and twirling through those darling rooms in a long gown and a champagne cocktail in hand. Oh what fun :) I love chandeliers and am slowly collecting them for various rooms in our home. I sold a gorgeous clock to a client years ago and I still regret it, I wish it were in my home sweet home but alas it was not meant to be. All your images are gorgeous but my favorite is the room with the doors, I am always on the lookout for a pair to add to the stone room in my old farmhouse, maybe one day....

  46. Bonjour Jackie,
    Wow - chendeliers and clocks - perfect. That neglected chandelier is gorgeous and adding the sinbeam was a nice touch. Perhaps you could send a few over to Paris, though actually we did have some pretty sunshine today.
    Have a fabulous week Jackie!

  56. Dear Jackie - beautiful images as always, clever girl that you are - could you please send that sunbeam straight to Wiltshire? We're in desperate need of it...Susie x

  57. Come over with a big car next time you visit France... You won't get the round topped Gustavian easily- but I know a couple of places in the Gers where you can get a lovely 'comptoise' which would just require a little of your talented distressing... Food for thought?

    ReplyDelete
  58. Oh how I'd love a Gustavian clock; and while I'm at it one of each of those exceptional chandeliers in every room in a large country home in Sweden or Norway please.Awww...Jackie, you always create dreams with each & every post. Hope the week has been good thus far? xoxo hugs from your friend

  59. Thanks for the sweet thought on "slow" gift wrapping and something tells me you can wrap a gift pretty well too. I can spot a good gift wrapper anywhere. XO

  60. I could happily find somewhere for a neglected chandelier. And I love the idea of hanging a small chandelier low beside a sofa or bedside. Rather gorgeous!
