Watching the clock

Check the time as you work or play in the yard with Frontgate’s 24-inch Outdoor Copper Clock. The clock is linked by radio signal to the U.S. Atomic Clock, so it automatically adjusts for daylight-saving time (which ends at 2 a.m. Sunday). The clock also displays the temperature and humidity. $169. www.frontgate.com

Guiding light

Help guests find their way with the ambient glow from the Coppersmith Solar Post Light. The light is made of a weatherproof material that looks like copper. Place it on a 4×4 fence and deck post or use the included epoxy pad to adhere the light to a porch or step. $39. www.grandinroad.com

Light up the world

Inspire dreams of travel and adventure with Land of Nod’s illuminated, raised-relief globe. A 25-watt bulb casts a soft glow in the 17-inch high fixture. $99. www.landofnod.com

Not your ordinary watch dog

Fireworks Gallery offers this eye-catching Bone Belly Pendulum Mantle Clock and other pet-themed timepieces. Yes, that’s a bone swinging in the dog’s belly. The clock is about 10 inches by 6 inches. For store locations, see the Web site. $48. www.fireworksgallery.net

Time for a change

While setting your clocks back an hour Sunday to mark the end of daylight-saving time, take a few minutes to make another change. Put fresh batteries in smoke detectors and carbon-monoxide alarms. For safety tips, go to these Web sites or your local fire department’s Web site:
