Keeping Track of Time

My last treasure from Josh & Main finally arrived, and I totally love it.  Remember when I showed you my fun antique looking wood and brass binoculars here, well the rest of my treasures arrived and I love it.

How about an antique brass hourglass timer.  Isn't it fun?

 I love the graceful curved lines.

 For now it found a place next to the binoculars on my desk area.

Maybe this will remind me not to spend too much time on the computer or bird watching.  

I love interesting and different accessories and I think both of these pieces are just that.
