Swedish Mora Clock or Swedish Pancakes?

MINI is in and people love it! Mini M & M's, oreos, Reese Cups, even people!

Well, could it work with a Swedish Mora Clock? I remember when I was a teenager and saw one of these in a store with my Mom. I instantly fell in love.


I like the soft lines and the round face and that Scandanavian feel. What I don't like is the price tag - ouch! Even at resale stores these can be over $1000. Lucky for me, I was able to find one for $8.50! Yep - you heard it right - eight dollars and fifty cents! For the price of a plate of Swedish pancakes, I finally found my Mora Clock! There is a catch however, it is only 14 inches tall! :-)

I found this at a thrift store and it was so really cute! But I wasn't loving the country look. So, I removed the floral appliques and gave it a few quick coats of spray paint.

I love it! I don't know if I am going to add anything else to it or leave it plain. The bright white is going to look smashing against my navy walls. I get to pay homage to my beloved "Something's Gotta Give" Hampton-esque decor without the "rich - diculous" price tag! And it is much easier to move around!



  1. Greetings,
    I've been looking for one in this size for years and wondering if you could tell me the brand, or anything else about it, please?
    Thank you :)

    1. Hi Paula. I don't know much about this as I purchased it from a re-sale shop. I will double check for markings or a name brand and hopefully that will help.
