The Grandfather Clock I'd Want

One of my good friends has a grandfather clock that was passed down from a family member. (grandfather? Sorry, Nancy I don't remember exactly.) It is a gorgeous clock on its own, but being a part of family history makes it even more special. Since I don't have a family member to pass a grandfather clock down to me, I would need to go out and buy my own. I wasn't sure if a grandfather clock would actually fit in with my home decor until I started looking at these Howard Miller grandfather clocks. I didn't know I could get a contemporary design grandfather clock! Since I have red couches and black shelving in my living room, I think this Howard Miller Urban Floor III Grandfather Clock would fit right in. I'm really, really liking this one. Check out the picture - isn't that gorgeous? And I could get 0% financing for one year and FREE shipping.

1-800-4CLOCKS is running a contest where you can win a $250 gift certificate toward your own grandfather clock. Maybe I should take pictures of Nancy's clock to enter? Or I could get her to do it, and she could donate her winning gift certificate to me - since she already has her own grandfather clock. (hint, hint)
