“Early to bed and early to rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise,” Benjamin Franklin once said. In 1784, after noticing an earlier dose of daylight in the fall, he proposed ringing church bells and firing canons to wake up Parisians at sunrise so they could take advantage of every bit of sunshine. (Can you imagine that wake-up call? Yikes.)

Lest you rise late for Sunday brunch or worship, remember, before you tuck in for the night, to set your clocks forward an hour for Daylight Saving Time (unless you’re in Arizona and Hawaii, those holdouts). And if the only clocks you are changing are the digital ones on your microwave or stove, let these quirky and modern takes on time trackers inspire you to incorporate some functional and fabulous clock decor in your life.

Time Keeps on Ticking

I distinctly remember one of my favorite attic finds as a child – my mother’s old typewriter in its black leather case. It didn’t work, but that didn’t keep me from slamming down the keys while pretending to talk on our old, beige turn-dial phone. Now, I love coming across vintage electrics displayed as chic and trendy decor. Portable table fans, retro radios, old cameras and rusty clocks have found their way into the mix. Check out a few of my favorite finds. (Typewriters as wedding decor – how cool!)
