Spring Forward

Italian Sandglass (8-10 minutes) in Sand-Cast Pewter Housing (LEO Design)

Late tonight (actually, early tomorrow morning)—after we're in bed—the clocks will "spring forward" to begin Daylight Savings Time.  Don't forget to adjust your clocks before you head for bed.

This Italian sand-cast pewter sandglass would make a handsome conversation starter on your desk, mantel or bookshelf.  And it works, too!  (Mostly.)  It accurately indicates a range of time, more-or-less anywhere from 8 to 10 minutes (depending upon its mood).  Like so many things Italian, what it lacks in precision it amply makes-up in style and beauty.  Please click on the photo above to learn more about it.
