I have a thing about clocks! I don't know why. I guess we all like some things better than others and collect stuff we like.
My clocks are not old or collectors items. I just like clocks.
If I go into Big Lots, I will look at the clocks. If I go to a flea market or antique shop, the clocks are one of the first things I look for in the store. If I find one I really like, I will come home and take down one I already have and either give it away, throw it away, or try to move it somewhere.
I, now, have one in every room including the laundry room and the garage and I don't want more than one to a room so I have to take one down when I get a new one. I have not put one in the storage building yet but that is a thought!
Some of my clocks are electric but most are battery operated. I hate having to reset them every time the electric goes off like the ones on the stove and microwave.
Every time the batteries start getting low the clocks seem to start ticking louder. I kind of like hearing them tick because it reminds me of the old wind-up clocks we used to have at home when I was a child. You could hear those old things all over the house ticking, ticking, ticking.
Is there anyone else out there that has a passion for clocks? Is there something else that you collect or that you especially like a lot?
Leave me a comment and tell me about your favorite collectible.
