Tick-Tock, Tick-Tock... It's Soon Time to Change Your Clocks!

When you change your clocks twice a year, do they return the favor?

Or is it just another humdrum chore of going around your house, room to room, moving hands or pressing buttons? This time around -- this weekend, in fact, for many of us -- that time change exercise can be a style change, too!

Don't think of your timepieces as just functional. Incorporate whimsy or elegance, fun or fashion. Make a personal statement with your clocks, so that checking the time can be as enjoyable as it is necessary.

Here are some I've found online for your horological consideration. Click on any image to learn more.

Final Thoughts

Sometimes, it's the small details that make a big impact in a room. If I haven't displayed the clock of your dreams, find one on your own this weekend. Check E-Bay, CraigsList, Freecycle and other sources in your neighborhood. One of my personal favorites is an antique mantle clock my parents found at a flea market years ago.

Find your own favorite, too -- and set it an hour ahead on Sunday morning.

  1. Delightful posting, really enjoyed the variety.

  2. This has given me so much to think about and i agree the variety is amazing. i'll also be looking at kitchens to go with my clock, i really liked the flowery one. I am currently researching for my kitchen redesign. I've just signed the contract for a tailor made kitchen so am on the look out for some unique or contemporary design features and a clock is so perfect. I have a young family at the moment and we're extending the house to make room for our third child and lucky me i get a new kitchen too. I'm having to live elsewhere though as the building work is at an open house stage and my 9 month old can do without the draft. it'll all be worth it though, eventually! thanks for the inspiration.
