Do Not Squander Time. . .but money is okay!

One of my favorite vintage finds of all time is a clock from (I think) the thirties or forties.  It is in my aforementioned favorite jadite color.  It plugs into the wall and keeps accurate time despite its age.  I am looking up at it right now as I'm typing this and thinking two things 1) boy, I really should take a shower and get in bed, because 5:30 a.m. is closer than I think AND 2) I am so glad I spent the money on this even though I was poor and in graduate school at the time and probably shouldn't have even spent what little extra change I had on a hamburger much less a vintage clock on ebay.  It has graced the kitchen of every home I have had since then.
