finding the humor
The Round Top antiques market yielded a few unexpected finds in 2011, one of which was a tall clock cabinet. That I just adore.
no clock, naturally, just the cabinet…
but I was optimistic. Until I had to figure out how to purchase clock parts and gears and motor components and all sorts of minutae. Six months later I opted for plan B: humor.
This past spring at the Round Top antiques market, I purchased the largest vintage alarm clock I could find. Never mind that it doesn’t work. We’ve got other clocks. This one is just for fun.
I think it’s a good complement to the collection of old wristwatches adorning the adjacent mirror.
Since the alarm clock was clearly too small for the space, I propped it up on a book and a block of yardstick fragments glued together.
Definitely good for a smile.
Thanks for dropping by – hope you have a wonderful week ahead!
