Vintage Alarm Clocks, Bibles and Oops ~

I was so excited when I found this vintage Baby Ben alarm clock.
{ Isn't he so cute? }
It matches the Big Ben clock exactly that I already have!
Now they sit in my living room happy and content...side by side~
Love old books...especially Bibles~ And now for a chuckle~ I recommend you never sit both of these bottles on your washer at the same time. I was doing a load of laundry yesterday and picked up a bottle and started spraying away at spots on a shirt and then a pair of pants...didn't even realize I was using glass cleaner until I was done and sat it back down! I think I am losing it. It HAS to be my age... Made for a good laugh and thank goodness it didn't ruin the clothes. Have a wonderful day filled with blessings~

Boy Sandi, I know what you mean! Sometimes I scare myself. It seems that somedays I truely am losing it. I'll find things that I've laid down in the oddest places, like pruners in the bedroom or comet cleanser in the frig. Be afraid, be very afraid.
I love those clocks!

Love the clocks, I have a couple myself. They're really hard to find now - love that they're white!

As far as the glass cleaner ~ you remind me of the father in My Big Fat Greek Wedding that put Windex on everything. Read your labels, Sandi ;) I almost brushed my teeth with facial lotion the other, but caught it at the last minute.

You're not loosing it! Just busy! My mother recently died and I have one of her bibles. It is very old and was given to her by her mother when she was rather young. Inside her mother wrote a note stating her hopes and dreams for her daughter. In it, MY mother wrote her family names, marriages, births, deaths. It was a very cool find.
