It's Francesca O'Clock

Posted by Francesca

I was wandering around the house the other day when I noticed something strange and exciting in Martha’s parlor.  Sitting there upon the lovely Fortuny-covered settee was a clock with my face upon its face.  Of course, the clock is one-of-a-kind and simply magnifique!

Oh my!  What is that upon Martha's fancy settee?

Why, it looks like a clock with a bunch of Francescas on it.

Sure enough!  It's me, twelve times!

It actually looks like a very fancy painting.  Look at the background.

It matches the beautiful Fortuny fabric of the settee.

I seem to remember a photograph taken of me wearing my finery and sitting right here.

Francesca, what are you doing sitting up there dressed like that, again?

Sharkey, I was inspired by this clock that I found here.

Just look at it, Sharkey!  Every hour is all about me!

Well, I hardly think that's fair.  Why do you have a clock and I don't?

I remember being photographed sitting here, as well.  It's not all about you, Franny!

Well then, Sharkey.  Let's send your photo to The Clock Lady and maybe you'll get a clock, too.

  • Hello Ladies,
    First off, I must say I am soooo happy to see you Sharkey. I have been worried about that paw of your's. I hope you are doing better. Next, Francesca, that clock is the neatest thing going. I am going to have Mom look that clock lady up and maybe do something for a Christmas gift in memory of Tasha. I think that would be terrific. It was nice to see you both in your diamond necklaces again. Everyone have a great rest of the week. I will be off the grid so to speak for the remainder of the week as the doctor said as long as I am on my meds and don't over do that the trip to the mountains for a couple of days in the camper would be fine. I will be back and sign on on Monday. Everyone take care!!
    Love & licks,
    Basil

  • Why Sharkey there you are, haven't seen you in a few days. :wink: I hope you are feeling much better but please still give us the update on how your paw is doing. The Francesca clock is very nice but I think a Sharkey clock and a GK clock is needed as well. I always love seeing the three of you. :smile:

    I must say you both look marvelous, love the "BLING" as well as the clock. I saw mom writing down the phone number there may be a clock with ALL our pictures on it in the future. Sharkey I can't believe whoever ordered this left you off. Don't they know you have feelings and why is everything about Francesca?

    Basil have a good trip to the mountains and remember to take your meds :)

    It's raining here this morning so once mom leaves for work I think I'll go back to bed. In fact I wish she would leave now I feel a snooze coming on.

  • Hello ladies, Kirby here.
    I wonder if the Clock Lady can make me in a Cuckoo clock? That way I could jump out every hour and bark. Seems like a good plan. Now that my mind is moving quickly, I have a lot of great ideas. I could be placed on one of the hands and a cat on the other. That way I could chase the cat day and night. Or, what’s that Daddy? OK I’ll stop for now and just say hi. Hi Sharkey, good to see you. Oh, by the way, where’s GK in all this? Don’t want to leave him out girls. Time for a nap.
    Catch you later, Kirby.

  • Hi Fran , I think a clock with my face on it would be great then it would be rocky time all day long! Have fun basil on your trip! your friend Rocky

  • Hi Girl Friends & G.K., Wow, Franny, that is some cool looking clock with 12 pictures of you on it. You look really beautiful! How great it is to see Sharkey and she would look beautiful on a clock, also! Why not order 3 more clocks?! You could have 3 separate ones with each of you on them and a 4th one with all three of you on it! Thanks for another fun blog. Love, Dudley Do Right XOXOXO+

  • Aw, that is simply adorable!

    I would submit a photo of the feline fur balls to the Clock Lady. That would certainly get a rise out of them.

    How about a Frenchie wristwatch?? Or a Frenchie alarm clock.

    All Frenchies, all the time.

    Love you both

  • Hmmmm. Nice clock. I do think however that Sharkey's pic should be at 12 o'clock, don't you? I guess I missed something. What happened to your paw? Did GK step on it? Hope you're ok. Arooo!

  • Ahhh. Every hour is Francesca hour! We saw this clock at the French Bulldog National Specialty show in Wisconsin this September. I am glad you got it!!

  • I'm so thrilled to be featured on the Daily Wag and even happier that Francesca adores her clock. I didn't mean to cause any jealousy with Sharkey though.

  • Hi Francesca! My Mom Robyn loves the clock Lady. She got a clock with my beautiful face on it and then ordered another one of a little human Angel too. I'm a Skye Terrier. I think Sharkey needs a clock too! You Frenchirs are so cute!!!
    Take care,
    Heather

  • YAY! I wanted to comment that these clocks are simply fantastic. We met The Clock Lady at the arts show in Roswell, GA and have bought several clocks since. We had one with our German Shep made, one with my kitty wearing angel wings, and then The Clock Lady photoshopped them together on to a colorful background we had made for my mom for Mother's Day. They are simply fantastic gifts and very unique. I even have the print of the clock as the desktop on my computer!! I love, love, love all these clocks. Martha should have her on her show to show all the cool things she has done. It's amazing how personalized, artistic, and creative they can get!!

  • Francesca, as much as I believe you are the most wonderful and beautiful Frenchie in the world, I, Faithanne, ARE the most fabulous, georgous, dainty, poofy little Havanese in the entire universe! But that Clock Lady is fabulous. Mommie was at the AKC show and met her. She told me that she was going to make me famous... and then she did! Everyone who sees me over the fireplace comments on my beauty (and then gives "some" of the credit to the Clock Lady)! I have to admit, she did get my 'best' look. You should have your Mommie have the Clock Lady on her show. She's really neat!

  • These clocks are the hottest thing on the dog show circuit. They don't get any cuter than with Frenchies, but any image would work. Think outside the box. I've met the Clock Lady. She's a real character just like you Francesca. You'd have a great time meeting her as well. Can't wait to get my 2 Clumber girls done on their own clock.

  • I was thrilled to see the clock lady on this blog. I bought a custom clock from her with 2 of my dogs on it and it's great and beautiful. A friend of mine just ordered a clock for her son with 2 of his deceased pets on it and it is fabulous as well. Jo Ann Shorter is the clock lady's name and you will love her work.

  • "The Clock Lady" in Atlanta made a beautiful clock made from a picture of my wife on our wedding day. She nearly cried when I gave it to her on our 5th anniversary.

  • Hi,
    Isn't that clock the greatest thing. Instead of one of you there are 12. My mom has 2 clocks with mine and my brothers Sid's picture on it. I love the clock lady. I got to meet her in Houston. She thinks I am beautiful, but we can tell her pugs. Mom is getting a table with my picture on it. Maybe your mom can get a table to match your clock too. I love your necklace. Take care.

  • Oh, Martha...how wonderful that you have a clock from the Clock Lady, too! Got mine when she first started making them and just love it. Enjoy, and hope Sharkey is all better now.

  • What a great idea...very creative!

  • Absolutely love the clocks from the Clock Lady. She does amazing work. Just got some for Christmas presents and birthday present for a co-worker. They really make wonderful gifts.

  • What a great clock! Cool idea. Martha should have this clock lady person on her show.

  • I love these clocks and I read somewhere that she makes other things as well...tables, I think?
    How can I get in touch with her? These are the perfect gifts for me to give out this year!
