There's safety in numbers

I bought some alarm clocks to take apart to make jewellery but when I went to smash them, I thought they were too cute. So . . . . .yet another collection was born. There's safety in numbers, right?

Yours look great ~ love the display!

suewhitney writes: Ah hahaha! They call me the collector of collections. If I buy one of something at a flea market I don't have at home...I can't leave without buying three of the same something, making it a collection. Glad you didn't smash these. I love clocks, and yes I have a collection! Thanks for making me smile.

Take care,

Skip the smashing and keep collecting. They really are too cool to take apart.
