Tick tock tick tock

Some of you may know that I wroteanother blog two years ago when Mr Curious and I moved into our current home.  One of the posts was about choosing a new clock.  Well, fast forward two years and we still don't have one!  We usually use the little digital clock on the microwave, but if the microwave is in use, or if we didn't press "clear" after the timer is up, we have no idea what the time is.

I was flicking through Inside Out at the library today and this clock captured my attention.

The Popov Cuckoo Clock ($125, Santina's) - I mean, who doesn't like a cuckoo clock?

That would be Mr Curious.  I show him the clock and he said "I don't want any clock that makes noise".  Where is his sense of fun?  But I guess  I don't want the clock chiming loudly at 3am in the morning either.

I have not ruled out this clock completely but I did a bit more searching.

Karlsson 3D Dots Aluminium Disc Wall Clock in Mirror ($59.95, Gifted)

Karlsson Spirograph Wall Clock in White ($99.95, Gifted)

Karlsson Dome Wall Clock in Black ($79.95,

Karlsson Disc Swinging 6 Wall Clock with Black Pendulum ($89, Santina's)

Out of these four, my favourite is the last one at the moment, but it's a bit hard to make a final call without seeing them in person.  Santina's has two stores in Sydney so I may check it out.

Which one do you like?  Or do you have other suggestions?


  1. I like the first 2 Karlsson clocks. Does Top3 have any good ones there?

  2. Thanks BuBbles. There's nothing to my liking on the Top3 website but there may be more in store - will check it out.

  3. Hi there! This is kind of off topic but I need some help from an established blog.
    Is it very difficult to set up your own blog?
    I'm not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick. I'm thinking about setting up my own but I'm not sure where to start. Do you have any tips or suggestions? Thanks

  16. Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just
    your articles? I mean, what you say is important and all.
    Nevertheless think about if you added some great visuals
    or videos to give your posts more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but with images and videos,
    this website could certainly be one of the most beneficial in its field.
    Excellent blog!
