What a great day!

Pin It Now!


About a month ago I got to pick out a gift from my company for my 5-year service award. I was really excited when I saw a Herman Miller Mantel Clock on the list. Okay so it's not exactly THE Howard Miller Clock I wanted but it chimes so I'm thrilled. I grew up with a Grandfather clock in my parent's house and the chimes bring back beautiful childhood memories for me. I love the quote from the movie "Under the Tuscan Sun" "Never lose your childish enthusiasm." I don't think I could lose that if I wanted to. The Fed Ex man came today and when I opened the box and saw this clock, I did a happy dance! I was beyond excited. It doesn't go with anything in my house, I don't have a bit of dark wood but I still love it. It's chiming now as I write this...I'm happy! Thank you wonderful Fortune 500 company that I work for!!!

What a great gift from your company. There is nothing better than a chiming clock. My DH & I purchased a Sligh grandfather clock for ourselves two years ago. I absoltely love it. It is a great clock, but unfortunately Sligh no longer makes their clocks. I believe that portion of Sligh was bought out by Bulova.

Looks like maybe we will have a collector's item! :)
