Trick or treat?

In honour of All Hallows Eve I thought I would show you my new Kit-Cat clock.

I’ve always liked the look of these clocks when I’ve spotted them in films, TV shows and people’s houses. They originated in a small American west coast town during the Great Depression in the 1930’s. “It brought mystery and excitement with its rolling eyes and wagging tail to an economically depressed nation ready for a smile and a friend” according the the California Clock Company’s Kit-Cat website.

To be honest, now it is on my wall I think it is quite sinister! The rolling eyes and big smile are a little creepy. Or maybe it’s the “Kit-Cat Creed” that makes me feel uncomfortable…

“Put a smile on everyone’s face;
Love in everyone’s heart;
Energy in everyone’s body;
and Be a positive force in everyone’s life!”

All that from a wall clock!!

But, they must be doing something right because they state that every 3 minutes for the past 70 years someone has bought a Kit-Cat clock. You can even get an iPhone app if you wanted to be able to carry it around with you!

So, I’ll toughen up and get used to my design classic clock…or maybe just take the batteries out!
