Time to Spring Forward

~Silver Tray of Vintage Pocket Watches ~
Round Top Antique Market, 2010

Just a little reminder that

Sunday, March 13, 2011

is the date to "Spring Forward"

to set clocks ahead one hour.

It's also Silver Sunday @ Gypsy Fish Journal.


The summer we married, my husband was in graduate school, and I was employed as a teacher. We took a portion of our savings that summer and purchased a sailboat. We christened our Catalina 22, “Hyacinths For The Soul” after Saadi’s poem. Our "Hyacinths" provided years of pleasure.


  1. I "sprang" already - - - last this afternoon I went around resetting clocks in an attempt to get sleepy by the clock and go to bed early.

    This spring one just about kills me - - - -

    I'm a BIG advocate - - - having lived in a state where we didn't do this clock nonsense - - - of just CHOOSING one of the times and sticking with it.

  2. Hi Sarah...

    I guess it is that time of the year again! While I always have a difficult time adjusting to the difference of will be nice to have more daylight hours! What a beautiful photo, my friend! All of those lovely old time pieces displayed on the silver tray looks so beautiful! Thank you for sharing it with us for Silver Sunday!

    Have a super Sunday, Sarah!

  7. Great photograph from Roundtop, one day, one day!
    We don't change our clocks until the 27th, so now you're one hour closer to me!

  8. Our spring break started, and we were visiting with neighbors and forgot all about it. We overslept this morning, too!!!

    I love that tray of watch faces!! A perfect picture for your post.
    Happy Sunday.

  16. What a beautiful reminder to spring forward, Sarah!

  17. I am looking fiorward to seeing the daylight last longer into the evening, Sarah. Spring is in the air!

  18. Love your spring forward clever! I would love to visit Round Top!

  19. I love the way you have Ann Estelle making repeat appearances in your blog. Such a cute idea! I have always LOVED paperdolls!! All the dolls from my ME Home Companion magazines were given to my daughter to play with as she was growing up. Now she's in college, but the dolls are carefully tucked away in a box in her closet.
    (Still can't believe that they had to stop producing that magazine! Craziest decision ever made by a publisher!)

  20. What a stunning photograph that is ;-)

    I am obsessed with clocks and clock faces!
