~ Frugalicious Friday {Wall Clock} ~


Jane, over at Finding Fabulous, is hosting her first blog party ~ Frugalicious Finds! I am joining in with this post on a fairly recent find.

I love the clocks Ballard Designs carries {I love everything Ballard Designs carries}. However, those over-sized decorative clocks are out of my budget ~ for a clock.


Ballard Designs, reg. $299., on sale $249.

Ballard Designs, reg. $229., on sale $199.

So I use my fall-back stores like Home Goods and JC Penney to find similar at a Kathy Passarette price.

I found this clock, which was originally $100.00 at JC Penney {and in the catalog for $49.99} for $39.99 online at their website.



{Sorry the picture is so small, but you can't save the picture when you click on the larger view}.

I think the second clock from Ballard's that I have pictured is the most similar. And guess what? JC Penney still has it! Online, $39.99!

I'm wondering who would actually pay that much for a CLOCK? Obviously no one in my circle. : )

You did good, chickie! It looks so much like the Ballard one!

Fantastic! My sister is looking for one and has had me on the lookout for her. I will pass it on.

Marie said...

Wow, great job in finding one that is almost a perfect match. ;)

Jane @ Finding Fabulous said...

Wow...that clock is super cute, and strikingly similar to the Ballard design...gotta love a great find like that! Thanks for joining Frugalicious Friday Kathy...Happy Friday! :) I'm off to check out the deals at JC Penny on-line!

That is a fantastic find! They look so similar.

Awesome! So many great similar expensive items to be found at JCP. I love visiting their site once I've spotted something I love...and usually find something so similar for a way better deal!

Have a great weekend!

Love your clock, and the price was fabulous.

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

I don't know, Heathahlee, but it's not going to be me! Thank you!

Absolutely, Beth! I always look to JC Penney for things like this {even for my clients!}.

Thanks, Marie! I didn't realize just how close until I was putting this post together!

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

This is great fun, Jane! Glad you thought of this. I can do frugalicious because I buy more than I make, and I'm always looking for the cheapest price I can get something for.

Thanks, Laurel! I can't wait to hang it!

Hi Roeshel! Thanks! I always find stuff there {online} and when it's not on sale I am very patient ~ I'll wait. I got most of the items I "really wanted" from them by waiting for it to come up on clearance or outlet.

Thank you, Happy Nester! I was really pleased, myself! As soon as I saw the price I got that order in as soon as possible!

Great find! Love the clock and the fact that you found it for so much less. I think people forget about JCP sometimes, but it's a great place to check out. Hope you have a great weekend!

Hi Kathy! Thanks for joining my blog and for your kind comments! I am very new to blogging and am having the best time meeting all of you fun and inspirational ladies! Just wanted to say hello, and your blog is lovely, and I am another of your followers now! Have a great weekend.

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Thanks,PK! Sometimes when I mention JC Penney eyebrows get raised. I think you're right, they are not often considered when looking for accessories.

Thank you, Lisa! I love checking out what JC Penney has.

Thanks, Kelly! I will definitely check out that Snag It!

Thanks, Joyce! Glad I found your blog as well. It is worth taking the time to click on someone's comment and follow the links to their blog.

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Oops, sorry Nancy ~ almost missed you! Thank you! I wouldn't be surprised if they sell out this weekend!

Controlling My Chaos said...

I love that you found essentially the same clock at JCP. What a find! But then you interior decorators are good at scouting out those sorts of deals, aren't you?

Proper Prim said...

I LOVE your clock... what a steal... that is my strongest weakness... and I need a new one for my kitchen... off to JCP website... thanks for sharing

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

@Controlling My Chaos ~ Sometimes it's just being at the right online source at the right time! : )

@ Proper Prim ~ I love these decorative clocks. I have seen so many that I just love, but, of course, I have no place to put half a dozen decorative wall clocks!
