on my wishlist...beautiful calendars

Having just repainted my kitchen, I've been looking for a wall calendar that I'm not embarrassed to have on my kitchen wall. You know, one without cats or muscle cars or anything like that. (No offense if you love cat calendars or muscle cars...sorry.) Well, I've finally found a perfectly gorgeous one! Check this out from Paper Source.

Each month displays a different piece of artwork that just so happens to have a small calendar on it. I love that it's more art than calendar. Of course, you can always trust me to prefer form over function (in my personal life, that is...I try not to make my clients suffer in this way!).

But for a second choice, I could easily go with this one, also from Paper Source:

All the nostalgic images from Italy are really fun...especially since I have a bit of a soft spot for Italia. They also offer a New York calendar, with vintage travel posters, and a vintage Paris calendar. But if none of these are your style, check out this one:

It's full of prints of vegetable drawings from the 19th century. Kinda kitchen-y and cool. And for my more romantically-inclined friends, look at this one:

Aren't these botanical illustrations beautiful? Celebrating flowers without being fussy. I really like that.

Anyway, every calendar above is from Paper Source. You might browse through their complete selection - I just think they are all lovely.


  1. Personally, I think you can never go wrong with a Tim McGraw calendar. Like the one I have. hee hee I really like that first one you show, but it would never work for me. I have to write appts and meetings and visitors somewhere. :o) I like that kichen one with the veggies too!

  2. I am going over there to get my calender. I love the botanical one, it's right up my alley! Good finds!

  3. After you're done using it as a calendar can you then frame the pictures? I just wonder about the paper quality. I saw several calendars on that website that are gorgeous. Right- like I need to spend more money right now! Ha! :)

  4. These are beautiful. I'm always searching for a pretty one to hang on the wall. Then I always end up with a freebie State Farm Insurance calendar from my aunt (who's an agent) instead. I think, "I'll just use this until I find something I like." Next thing you know, it's October... -Julia :-)

    P.S. Love Marie's idea for a Tim McGraw calendar! She's so funny.


thank you for commenting, dahling! I can't wait to hear what you have to say. :-)
