Pin It

Collection of Time

No. You get nothing back.

 

I’m talking about a physical collection. Of clocks. Oh, and clock radios.

 

I don’t know why? I just find them so interesting. Think about it. Throughout your life, you have probably had several, maybe even dozens of different clocks. Now, if you’re just a youngin, that might not be true. My only alarm clock for the last few years, has been my iPhone. But, I’ve owned plenty a head ringing, almost nauseating, drive you crazy, alarm clocks.

Here’s my #1. The first. The beginning. The trouble maker?

Isn’t she pretty? Don’t touch! Just kidding. Go ahead. You know you want to.

 

And if you really think about it, they are one of the most important things you own. Sure you hate them. But it’s a love-hate. Without them, you would be late to school, work, hair/nails, dates, dinner. You get it. We need to show clocks some respect. Sing it …. R-E-S-P-E-C-T!

 

Now, close your eyes, and image a wall of shelves covered in these vintagey tickers. Yes. That was awesome you just saw! The sizes, colors, shapes and styles are endless. That makes for eclectic eye candy!

Still not clear? Maybe these will ring a bell…

Do you have a collection? Is it on display, or locked away?

Whoa, those are some awesome clocks!! Especially the first three, I'd have those for sure!
I'm not really a collector-ish girl. I admire other peoples commitment to their collections, it's just not something I've done.
Oh wait, do chairs count? I have accumulated a few of those!
