I LOVE clocks! I don't know how it got started or why but clocks catch my eye everywhere. Mostly I like them a little off beat and quirky.
This is one of my favorites. I found it at Target. They had it in the Back to School College stuff several years ago and I waited and waited for it to go on clearance. It never did. They just moved it to the regular aisle. It was $89 which was a little steep for something I really didn't "need" so I let it go.....sort of. Actually I walked down that aisle every time I went in the store, hoping for a deal good enough to make me buy it. About 2 years after I first saw (fell in love with) it, I got a $100 check for working at a conference. I knew just what I wanted to spend it on! :-)
This is a station clock. Reminds me of riding the train to grandma's house in my younger years. I first found one at a furniture store and didn't buy it. Of course I couldn't stop thinking about it. (I might be a little obsessive about clocks right now?) When we went back to the store it was gone! :-( For my 50th birthday, my husband tracked one down and bought it for me!
This was my grandpa's clock. After graduation from high school I came to Arizona to visit my grandparents and never left. (Met my hubby there!) Grandpa worked shift work. He used to come home after a midnight shift, sit and dunk a piece of bread into a glass of milk for a snack, and then he would wind this clock before headed to bed. He wanted me to have it when he was gone. This is a memory clock for me.
How's this for quirky? Unusual clocks always catch my eye. This one just came from Kohl's. I waited to buy it till it was on sale for 50% off and I had a coupon to boot!
Sometimes I wonder where the attraction to clocks came from. Do I need any more? Need? I think not! Will I buy any more? Probably. "Time" to go.....
