I don't normally like to wish away hours of my life but these bitter cold days of February have me pining for spring. While winter is still wearing on, I thought it would be fun to put together a collection of beautiful wall clocks that would be artful additions to any wall in your home. What I love about these wall clocks is that beyond being functional pieces (minus the Kate Spade "No Alarm Clock" art piece,) they add richness, color and whimsy to your space. And in the case of the Cuckoo Clock a little chirp from a feathered friend on the hour!

When choosing a clock, consider where it will live and look carefully at the size and scale of the piece. For example, the Goldfish clock (which represent wealth and luck) installs at 25" x 25" and deserves a bit of breathing room around it to allow the intricate details of the 9 fish to stand out. Before purchasing anything for my walls I like to map out with newsprint or scrap paper how it will look, especially if I'm considering it as part of a larger arrangement of art. This ensures that there are no surprises when you get the clock and it makes hanging it up a breeze- mark the location for the nail on your piece of paper, hammer it in the wall, remove the paper and hang up your clock!

While we all may be stuck indoors for a few more weeks, find joy in the beautiful details that surround you in your home. And be thankful that February is the shortest month of the year!

Stay warm and happy!
