asking for trouble

Pancake Clock

Look what just arrived! I totally wasn't expecting it yet. Sadly I have no batteries in the house to try it out.

A few weeks ago, Society6 had a great deal on and I managed to get one of my pancake clocks for just $22 and free shipping! It turned up (surprisingly quickly) last week and I’m so pleased with it! I got the natural wood frame, which matches the pancake nicely. The clock is really well made and it’s very sturdy too – better than you would expect for the price.


My only complaint is that it didn’t come with a battery as I didn’t have any in the house. I did finally remember to buy some a few days later and could hang it up. I planned to put it in the kitchen, but it’s mostly tiled and there’s a clock on the oven, so instead I put it in the living room, which doesn’t have any clocks.


Anyway, I’m really happy with it, and I definitely recommend Society6 if you’re looking for a clock. As well as my own designs, there are tons of other cool clocks available and there are regular free shipping deals.
