I have been contemplating buying a new alarm clock for quite some time. I’m fairly certain that the clock I currently own is about 10 years old, purchased before I left for college. Thanks, Mom.
Moving into my apartment with Tyler and rearranging the surface of my dresser sealed the deal. The clock juxtaposed with the beautiful lace frame on my tray and the girly lines of my jewelry stand just did not work. There is nothing delicate or cute about my clock. It clearly had to go, and something “new” had to take its place. That being said, I loved the vintage feel of my tray and began to desire a new clock with an old vibe.
As fate would have it, the L.L. Bean catalogue arrived yesterday. Now, the L.L.Bean catalog does not normally make me very excited, but as a person who appreciates the outdoors, I gave it a chance, leisurely flipping through the pages. To my delight, I came upon this…
The Big Ben Clock not only has the vintage feel I wanted, but it also has an alarm feature AND most importantly, it is only $39.95 – affordable! The only difficult part became what color to get. In the magazine, you can clearly see there are four color options. However, the website actually offers five, and I’m torn as to which one I should purchase. I love the green and silver, but the walls of my bedroom are green and the silver wouldn’t match the gold frame of the tray. The antique bronze and cream are nice, but I don’t typically buy these two colors. Similarly, the blue is pretty, but it doesn’t excite me.
What do I do?!?!?!?!?!
