Good things: My Place & Yours

The theme for My Place & Yours this week is the things you collect.

If only this was a hard theme to respond to … but collecting crap (sorry, stuff) is what I do best … you get it, I’m a giant bower bird sitting on a pile of crap!

I've mentioned some of my collections before so I thought I'd mention one I've just started ... vintage alarm clocks.


It all started when Miss C wanted an alarm clock to get her up in the morning and purchased a new, battery operated, alartm clock; the black one at the back

It was way too loud for her so when I saw a 1970s vintage Sportsgirl alarm clock in perfect condition ... gorgeous but still too loud for Miss C.

I find I like vintage alarm clocks and if I see any more in perfect condition I'm going to grab them.

Those clocks are devine. I love the first one.

I was wondering if you would like to be theme queen next week. Just e-mail your theme to dani_luigi@me.com and will get the ball rolling :)

old alarm clocks have such a pleasing shape i think. they should be something that people don't like seeing as they do after all make you get out of bed too early but there's just something about those old style ones with the handle type thing on the top and the two bells that just really does it for me (and you as well obviously!)

Funny how collections start. I have a vintage Baby Ben that is a wind up. I am always on the look out for more...

You know the best part of those old-fashioned clocks - they'll still work even when the power goes off in the middle of the night! I never rely on electric bedside clocks now :)
