My dear friend and neighbor had her 91st birthday on Wednesday this week
She was born November 21, 1921 and has really lived! I can sit and listen to her stories all day and never get bored.
She loves to play dominos so when I saw a domino clock on Pinterest I knew exactly what I was making for her birthday gift.
I bought this wooden plate and marked the center to get a hole drilled.
I had to enlist help from the men folk in my house because I had never used power tools before and found myself quite intimidated by the drill. I was sure I was going to put a hole in everything in front of me lol. I have no idea what drill bit was used to make the hole look like this, but I am very greatful that my uncle made my clock piece fit in the plate.
I painted the plate brown, to match her kitchen.
I then glued on the dominos I had chosen to mark the hours.
I puffy painted "DOMINO TIME".
Then I inserted the clock works , a battery, and set the time.
Here is my sweet friend opening her gift.
I had so much fun making this and totally want to make a pizza clock next. My neighbor loved the clock and said her birthday was one of the best days since I came over to celebrate with her. She made a wonderful lunch and we ate with teh fine silverware. It was fun!
I adore ths woman!
