While flipping through a friend's L.L.Bean catalog, we were surprised to see quite a few cool things for the home. We like the classic looking Moonbeam clock ($36). It comes in a few great colors and we love that it attempts to wake you first with its gently illuminating light. If you fall back asleep, a bell sounds. Our kind of clock.
We grew up taking yearly trips to L.L.Bean in search of "Bean boots" and Norwegian Pullover sweaters (which we think are now a thing of the past- sorry preppies).
