Chalk It Up to Father Time
In a world of PowerPoint presentations and flat-screen TVs, it's easy to wax nostalgic about the tactile experience of old-fashioned chalkboards (although it wasn't much fun to clean the erasers!). Rekindle some of that charm with this reclaimed slate wall clock. The pieces are handmade in Wisconsin from used school chalkboards and reclaimed Douglas fir.
The blank face encourages you to scrawl notes for loved ones, or to simply doodle (without getting in trouble). $95 at uncommongoods.com
