This clock shelf was made by our mother about 1931 or 1932. Our dad had started to experiment with various kinds of wood craft and Mom wanted to try something herself. This clock shelf became one of the icons of our home for over six decades, hanging on the wall near the kitchen stove. A succession of clocks came and went from the little shelf, but, together, they all marked the passage of time that recorded the history of our family. Since only one of us can keep the shelf at one point in time, posting the photo on this blog provides a means for all of us to remember it and the role it played in our lives.
