Just the clock to turn back for Daylight Savings
With Daylight Savings Time approaching, we can’t control the lack of natural light, but we can rely on a clock with a sunny disposition. The IKEA PS 1995 Clock in yellow comes with the added perk of storage for smaller items inside. Hang on a wall or place on a shelf for a brighter outlook year-round. The colorful piece is priced at $39.99. For information, go to ikea.com.
