Hickory Dickory Dock,
The mouse ran up the clock.
The clock struck one,
The mouse ran down,
Hickory Dickory Dock.
I know you all remember that annoying little mousery rhyme from kindergarten. I don't like the mouse part, but I do love the clock part. As a matter of fact, I love clocks (except for cuckoo clocks -- they give me nightmares). I have clocks all over the house.
In the office. My mother gave me this sweet little clock. He ticks loudly. Reminds me of an old movie, "The Mouse that Roared". I don't like mice, but do love the clock.
In the "odd corner". A very discounted purchase from Kirkland's.
On a barrister bookshelf. This one is a two-fer -- a clock and a camera.
On top of the kitchen cabinets. Two HomeGoods finds.
On the bedroom mantle. The large one is a Kirkland's discounted product and the small one is a purchase from Pottery Barn about 10 years ago. He stopped working and is beyond repair. I love him anyway.
In the master bathroom. Another HomeGoods find. I left this one in color so that you could enjoy the red. :-)
I still wear a watch. So does my husband. The "boyfriend" style is my favorite. I found this on super sale a few years ago.
Yes, all of my clocks are male. I don't know why, they just are. Some of the clocks work. Some gave up a long time ago, but they are correct at least twice a day, right? It makes no difference to me. I enjoy the collection. I'm currently looking for a nice large clock to hang in the empty space by my desk in the office.
I also love our collection of vintage cameras, but that's a post for another day!
