One month left on these and I am looking forward to getting new ones for the forth-coming year. Many places give out calendars. I especially like the one my Auto Parts man gives out, it is small enuff to attach to my PC or any other teeny place I seem to need one.
~~ One of the calendars I have are of shoes [Andy Warhol’s Taming of the Shoe], another fairies [with really kewl art work and quotes from the masters] and the third large one is totally funky one.
Art Deco by Erté.
This Russian artist was born Romain de Tirtoff and liked to call himself Erté after the French pronunciation of his initials. He was one of the foremost fashion and stage designers of the early 20th century. Destined for a military career, Erté surprised a number of people by creating his first successful costume design and the age of five. In 1912, at the age of 19, his father finally allowed him to move to Paris to fulfill his dream of becoming a fashion illustrator. What do your Calendars say about you? ~~~~~~~ I used to find Susan Branch Calendars I really liked them but for the last three or four years they are not to be had in these parts. ~~ But AH HA look what I have found…SITE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ~~~~~~~~ Today Laundry, begin addressing Christmas cards,plant 8 bulbs then ponder tonight’s dinner. Go out and try to get the outside Christmas lights a little closer to the house, so I can pop in and out at my discretion and do a little decorating.
Remember tomorrow is the BackYard Brawl!
GOoooooooooooooooooooooooo Mountaineers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Start or at least THINK about the next knitting project…

I like your calendar post today. Very nice pictures.

I remember when I was a youngster that all furniture stores gave away these large calendars and also yard sticks. They don't do that anymore.

Interesting post. The calendars we choose to display do say quite a bit about ourselves.

Naturally you would find wildlife and nature scenics around my home and office.

This year my favorite is the Pa. Game Commission's calendar....... But maybe that has something to do with Willard & me's photographs being part of it :)

Oh Yes Abraham I had forgotten about the Yardsticks, and at the local shoe store a comic book and a balloon Remember Buster Brown Shoes?

Neat “O” Jane and I have a common thing going on ~ no wonder I liked her from the beginning ;)

Indeed so Salty, one year I had tractors, one time dogs, but I confess I am a SNOB about the breed of dog I like... no calendar showed the best, or so I thought of the breed we have raised. I like to vary what I get…SPICE of life ey?

Next week the Calendar QUEST

I just might get a CD or 2… I go to this Bookstore only every three months…because it is such a treat for me…
