I love my baby bens, baby bens, baby bens!

I scored a vintage Baby Ben alarm clock, while thrifting last week, & thought I'd share my collection w/ y'all.

This is my "new" one...nothing special about it other than it's a Baby Ben.

Now this one is special! It was the first of my collection ($4 @ a thrift store many years ago) & is the only one that is jeweled. It's old & worn & the casing is a beautiful shade of pink....love it! I've seen this style go for $50 on eBay so aren't I proud of my deal?

The whole collection.

Been really busy sprucing up the yard...hope every one is doing well. I may not be around much next week....my daughter got a big promotion & has to travel to Colorado for training. So the grands will be w/ us all week. *gulp* I'd better stock up on monsters & ibuprofen! ;o)

Gotta love those Baby Bens! They were definitely made to last ~ I have one I still use.

Rest up for the grandkids ~ I had one of mine today with me at HomeGoods ~ Hubby thinks I ought to always take him with me, as I only had time to buy ONE thing, the rest of the time I was trying to keep him in the cart or when I let him loose, he had me re-building the toy displays that he so quickly destroyed! But it was fuN!!

Big TX Hugs,
