wake-up sunshine

Vintage Cardinal alarm clock.

Now that I’m settled (you know, with a house & kids), my mom has started unloading some of my childhood treasures on me. I’m really enjoying it and so glad that she saved all these things. This clock was a joint gift for myself and my sister — as we shared a room while growing up. I think we got it sometime in the late 1970s. As it is with some things, I liked this clock much more then my sister and it got so that I could not fall asleep without it. I traveled with this clock. And it ticks unevenly.



  1. I love that it says Prim Cardinal on its face. Makes it sound like some weird Divine Hours Tracker or something.

  2. I never understood my daughter Katia when it comes to this clock: it ticked so loud it would have prevented me from falling asleep at night. And the alarm was almost the same as a shotgun blast right beside your ears. But, besides this, the clock had somewhere character. It seemed to smile.
