i have a clock problem

hello, my name is jeanne and i have a problem with clocks

at flea markets,
estate sales,
 auctions....
i cant seem to pass one by...and not buy...


i love the old graphic quality of vintage clocks



they add to perfect touch to any vignette


i started collecting years ago,
then lined my window sill above my desk...
i look at them all the time...


they somehow seem to have spread out all over the house


and the best part is.. in anticipation of my downsized move,
...i just recently pared down this collection !


i tried to just keep one of each style/color....

and yet i cant stop buying them...

what's up with that???

well...i'm not alone...
stop over at funky finds
saturday nite special....
it's collection theme nite..
and see what everyone else collects.

Love this clock collection! I remember loving my Big Ben bright orange alarm clock back in 1970! Wish I could give it to you!

I have the same problem. I think it's a good problem though!

You could have written this post about me! I have a huge collection of vintage clocks too. Most of them are displayed in my guest bedroom. My brother stayed with me this Thanksgiving and kept giving me a hard time about what clock he should set :)
Love your collection!

Tic Toc. I love all your clocks. I have just a few myself too!

I especially love the ones with a loud tic toc. I've loved them since seeing all those clocks in Gepetto's shop in Pinocchio...
