My new, err old, new alarm clock arrived today. Don't you love getting packages in the mail?
I won this retro beauty on Ebay for $8.09. I love the minimalist look of it and of course, the flipping numbers. It's a nice pale beige color, perfect for my yet-to-be-decided color of the bedroom.
It has a spinning second hand on the right hand side and the alarm time on the left wheel. I've tested the alarm function and boy does it work. My husband is "protesting" it's use due to the horrid buzzing sound it emits. Well, at least now maybe I will get up when the alarm goes off. Isn't that an alarm's purpose? In the past I'd roll over and turn the music alarm off in a half-sleep state. Yeah, that's effective! So now we're cool and we'll get up on time.
