Just Messin' Around ~ And A Question ***

Afternoon all! 
  I love trying to keep flowers around the house, especially in winter - (bah humbug come on Spring) ~ Well, I had a few minutes to primitize an old large canning jar and here's the result.

  I just sewed and old button on the burlap fabric and then sewed some velcro on the back of it to hold it around the jar.
 Easy on! Easy off!

Now for a question....
I found this while haunting an antique mall and loved it.  
But I don't know what kind of "clock" this is...
if you notice, the Number 1 is on the right of the 12.
And the back has a lever you pull down and when I twist the dial on the back it will eventually have an alarm go off  and the handle raises.
So...
what is this?





I'm getting antsy to start my gardens!
Keep the faith folks, Spring is really really gonna be here some day!!  ;o)

It's a timer counts down the minutes. From the 1950's. Pretty flowers. I love fresh flowers but the kitty always tries to eat them. Warm Blessings! Amy

Pretty flower arrangement. I am so ready for Spring. That's a new word to me, primitize; I like it. The old countdown timer is very unusual. What a great find :)

I was going to say it was your backwards clock, but Amy's definitions sounds better. Love the flowers!
