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.
For the Modernist
Retro Hexagon Clock from Pottery Barn
For the Lover of Whimsy
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.
