Hamil-Swag for the Household

1) Collectible Plates– Available from Ebay.

2) Pillowcase- Found on All Things Hamilton (thanks to Nicole for the suggestion!)- I love the idea, but this is not my favorite depiction of Hamilton.  When they print this pillowcase with a different image,  I might just have to buy it…   

4) Tea Towels– I honestly don’t know what the function of a tea towel is, but this is still pretty cool.  Available on Amazon

5) Clock- From Founder of America

Alexander Hamilton clock

I like the idea of a Hamilton clock, but I dislike this particular quote excerpt because I think it is very misleading.   In reality, Hamilton was deflecting the suggestion that his genius came easily and offering an explanation of his approach and work ethic.  The full context of what he said is this:

Men give me credit for some genius. All the genius I have lies in this; when I have a subject in hand, I study it profoundly. Day and night it is before me. My mind becomes pervaded with it. Then the effort that I have made is what people are pleased to call the fruit of genius. It is the fruit of labor and thought.

I have this up in my office- such a great motivation to focus!
