My Dream Clock {and A Giveaway}

Alarm clock dreams do come true!

What?  You’ve never heard that before?

Well, then, you need to read my story.

I’ve had this alarm clock for as long as I can remember.  For at least 20 years.  It’s small ~ just a clock with an alarm which is what I like because I don’t like clock radios.


But for about the last eight years I’ve seen this Moon Beam Alarm Clock in the L.L.Bean catalog and have wanted it so badly.

But since my clock worked just fine I couldn’t justify getting a new one.

I hardly ever have to wake up to an alarm but when I do it’s a BIG deal for me.  I worry all night long that the alarm won’t ring and I wake up all night wondering how much longer I can sleep.  And then it usually happens that I’m asleep when the alarm does ring and it’s so loud it practically scares the heck out of me.  Crazy, I know.

There were three times in the past four months that I needed to set my alarm: the first time it didn’t ring and I thought I thought I set it wrong, the second time it didn’t ring and I thought I forgot to switch it on, the third time it didn’t ring and I realized it just wasn’t working anymore.  The clock worked.  The alarm didn’t.

This is where my alarm clock dream came true.

So then I needed a new clock.  I told my hubby and he, knowing I’m kind of picky about some things, said, “you better start looking.”  So I thought about it for about ten minutes and jumped on to the L.L.Bean site to look at the Moon Beam Alarm Clock.  The clock of my dreams.  The price of $50 kept me from ordering right then and I told Hubby what I wanted but that I was going to wait because I didn’t really need a new clock because I hardly ever need to use the alarm.

Two days later UPS brought a box to our door and when I opened it I was beyond thrilled!  My amazingly thoughtful husband ordered it for me and he even knew which color I would want.

It looks so cute and perfect on my nightstand that I can’t help but look at it and smile every time I go to bed.


I haven’t needed to use the alarm yet but when I do I’m hoping I’ll sleep better knowing I won’t be jolted out of a good dream by an annoying alarm.

I have to tell you that this clock not only fulfills my alarm clock dreams, it is so worth the money.

  •      It has a classic look with a fully lighted clock face.
  •      The left side has a light that illuminates at the alarm time to gently wake me up.
  •      It has a lovely bell sound which is so pleasant I almost want to cry.
  •      It also has the option of the bell/light combination to wake me up.  The alarm light will blink for 5 minutes before the bell rings to gently begin the waking up process which makes waking up to the alarm not so unpleasant {if that’s possible}.

I was so, so happy with this clock that I contacted L.L.Bean and told them so and they graciously offered to sponsor a giveaway for a Moon Beam Alarm Clock.

Please visit L.L.Bean’s site and read all about the clock ~ and please follow them on Facebook and Twitter.

    I love the vintage look of this clock! Might just have to order myself one if I don’t win! LL Bean is one of the few companies who offer excellent shipping terms to Canadian customers and that is a huge plus! Kudos to your husband for being so thoughtful!

      That’s good to know about L.L.Bean and their great service to Canadian customers. I LOVE L.L.Bean. Everything I have ever ordered from them has been excellent quality and their customer service is helpful and kind. I don’t think I said this in my post, but I love everything about this clock. Good luck!!! And yea, order one if you don’t win. 🙂 Which color would you choose?
