All Of Our Clocks

Filed under: General — Laura Moncur @ 3:14 pm

I cringe every time Daylight Savings rolls around. We have approximately twenty clocks in the house that need changing. Here are some of my favorites.

This Starburst clock was a garage sale find. I painted the faux wood grain plastic and replaced the clock innards so it would run correctly. When I walk past it, sometimes the metal tines catch on my clothing and vibrate an unearthly tone.

This Starburst clock was a recent purchase from a second hand store. I spent WAY too much money on it considering that it doesn’t keep time. Rather than admit defeat, I just put it on the wall without a battery. It isn’t a clock so much as a wall decoration.

Mike’s dad gave us this Dr. Pepper clock. The numbers 10, 2, and 4 are highlighted because those are the times during the day when you’re supposed to drink a Dr. Pepper.

Mike’s dad also gave us this Frostie Rootbeer clock. I had never heard of Frostie Rootbeer before we had received this clock. Every once and a while Mike and I will find bottles of it at specialty food stores like Liberty Heights.

Sometimes my small home feels like the Doc’s house in Back To The Future. I have so many clocks and I actually USE them all, so the time does need to be changed on all of them. These vintage clocks, however, are special to me.



  1. I LOVE the top starburst!

    Wow…three peppers a day? That’s a lot of Dr. Pepper.

  2. What value range would you say the Dr Pepper sign is in? My mom found one and is wondering~

  3. Debbie,

    I never thought about it. When I looked at eBay, I found a clock exactly like mine sold for a whopping $414! I couldn’t believe it!

    Who knew anyone would pay that much for a clock?!
