Dairy Belle?

I spotted this vintage clock in my grandpa’s collection and just had to photograph it for the blog. Southern Belle Daily Company started in the 1950s in Kentucky and is still going strong (now as part of the Prairie Farms family). The clock, in good working condition, was sort of difficult to photograph, but I just had to try.
I love the image of the belle, executing a perfect curtsy with her coy expression. She kind of reminds me of Belle Watling from (you guessed it!) “Gone with the Wind.” Speaking of my favorite film, did anyone notice that Catherine Zeta-Jones was wearing Scarlett’s curtain dress at the Golden Globes?

I think she looked lovely and of course we’re all so happy her husband’s health has improved. Even the fashionistas at New York Magazine mentioned Scarlett-O in their commentary of the event!
And finally (apologies for such a disjointed post), I added some new designs to the CafePress shop ...including Bayou Belle, Delta Belle & others. Hope everyone likes them!


  1. Cute clock! I just love Catherine's dress! Fabulous! On Facebook last year I used her as my doppelganger. Have a fabulous day, Kate!

  2. The link to your CafePress store didn't work. Do you have another link?

  3. OMG I kept saying stuff about the curtain dress! I can't believe they haven't mentioned it on E News or something!!!

  4. Oooooohhhh....I would love to have that clock. What a classic.

  5. I agree about the dress,...it looked like Scarlett's dress to me too. She is so beautiful and I am happy for both of them that he is doing better I know they have a couple small children. I guess fashion designers and stylist just run out of ideas sometimes no matter how much money they are paid.

  6. Oh I adore that little clock~what a treasure! And yes, of course you know I love the dress too :) Thanks for sharing the photo bc I missed the GG.

  7. Ok, I know it's not nice to covet -but that clock! Oh boy. That's one of those things I make a bee line for when I go vintage shopping. She is gorgeous, I certainly love a cheeky redhead!


Lay it on me y'all!
