Tic Toc How Many Clocks?

Hey everyone!  Just how many clocks does it take for a family of two to actually function, especially when said two people also have iPhones & iPads that have built-in clocks, alarms, & reminders?  Well, I don't know, let's just count them, shall we?

Of course, our pride and joy.  It's a piece of furniture that happens to keep time!


Another treasure -- my In-laws' 50th Wedding Anniversary clock.  This one brings me such peace.

My bedside clock -- I always look to see if it's too early to get up.  Yep, I'm an
O-dark-thirty kind of gal!

A must in the bathroom, but.......

Do we need another one in the "loo" as well?

Have to keep track of how long it takes to fold those socks!

Wall art!

Decor that happens to be a clock!

Oven clock -- a must, don't you think?

Microwave clock -- check!

The Man-Cave's first clock and........

The second and The Man's fave!  He had a pickup just like this when he was in high school.

Guest bath -- gotta keep company on their toes and.........

Just to be certain they stay on schedule, here's one in the guest bedroom, too!


Well, what would you expect in my Momma-Cave?

Just in case we lose track of time while in the garage.

On the patio to make sure we don't spend too much time out in the sun!

Yep, I'd say we have quite enough clocks to keep us from missing any important appointments!
How is time-keeping around your home -- are you punctual or not?  Oh, and just so you know -- I wear  watches for jewelry, so I have a bunch!

Thanks for stopping by and please come again anytime!

Hi Carol,
Wow.....you do have a lot of clocks for sure. I have a # of watches but most of them have dead
batteries so they are just jewelry for sure!! lol Keep forgetting to take them to the jeweler,
cause I only wear them on sundays, and only at times............
Now you have many wanting to count and see how many clocks we have, not that many I don't think....
I had to go count. 1 in the bedroom, 3 in the kitchen, I hadn't even noticed the one on our new microwave. lol, and then the computer has
the time in our computer room. The idea of having one in the bathroom is a great idea, as I am always going to look at the one in the bedroom to see the time while I am getting ready for church especially. So guess we are clock poor in our house. lol

Thanks for stopping by my blog yesterday and for your sweet comments, always great to hear from you, and yes, anything baby puts a smile on my face too, and especially when it is your baby or your grandbaby.............

Blessings, Nellie

Hahaha - so funny, Carol. I have clocks everywhere too, but never really thought about it til now. I swore that I wouldn't let the clock rule me when I retired, but I guess old habits are hard to break. Love this post!

YES! I am punctual and hate to be late! Now I am wondering how many clocks we have around too. Gotta go check:) XO, Pinky

I can't stand to be late. We have some family members who are constantly late and it drives me nuts! We have clocks all over the house too. I finally put one in our bathroom and now I don't know how I got ready without it. :)

I thought I had a lot of clocks but now I dont feel so bad about my ever growing collection! I actually want to create a clock wall of art in my kitchen/dining area but my partner will only allow it if the clocks are not working! The ticking sound annoys him too much :( We will have to work out a compromise somehow :)

Maria Elena said...

Carol, I love your collection of clocks! Your grandfather clock is magnificent! What a great piece! No, a girl can never have too many clocks. :) I love them also!

Vel Criste said...

So interesting to see all the clocks in your home Carol! The Grandfather clock is my favorite, I grew up with one in our home and I would love to have one again!

Carol said...

This one is extra special to us because it had belonged to The Man's mom and dad. It has such a beautiful sound. Thanks for visiting!
