Only Three Weeks Late...

I finally bought my 2011 wall calendar!  I ordered one from Amazon, and I can't wait for it to arrive!  Hopefully before February!   Unfortunately we won't be able to enjoy the January picture for more than a few days...  Oops! 

I've been going nuts without a new calendar on the wall.  I think this is the first time that I have not had one before the new year began.  I usually buy one for myself get one for Christmas, or buy one when they are on clearance after Christmas.  But this year, I honestly didn't even go look for one until January was here, and I couldn't seem to find one that fit my qualifications.  I'm picky.  NO, the free one from the bank absolutely will NOT do!  Choosing a calendar is serious business for me.  My calendar is another piece of art on the wall, so that is exactly what I look for.  No puppies, kittens, or other adorable furry creatures.  I love modern art and I LOVE color!  Over the years my calendars have featured Claude Monet, Vincent van Gogh and Georgia O'Keeffe.  Twenty-ten introduced me to the artist Charley Harper, and he will be returning for twenty-eleven!  I am so excited! 

Sooo, what do you look for in a calendar?  Your favorite TV show or movie?  Beautiful landscapes?  Whatever the bank is giving away?  Don't be ashamed if you're a puppy person...  they really are CUTE!  :)


  1. Mine the past 3 years have been Precious Moments.

  2. My mom buys me a calendar every year for Christmas... And then she comes and turns it for me each month because I always forget. ;) This year I have the Lang Barn Calendar ( Totally not your thing, but I love it. :)

  3. I don't care about the pictures mostly...I need big squares to write it and lately I have been buying ones that fit on the fridge (and are magnetic) cause frankly, if it's not front and center I tend to forget. :)

  4. I suppose I should mention that my wall calendar is strictly for birthdays and anniversaries. I don't want to clutter it up with all my daily happenings. I use a planner for that. :)

  5. I use the magnetic dry erase calendar board on the fridge for our monthly schedules. I would love a 12 month paper calendar, but honestly, I hate the looks of them. (That is before I knew that there were pretty ones like you picked!) The idea is great, add to it whenever you know of something happening in advance, have all the birthdays right at your fingertips. But they still just aren't my style.
    I also have a terrible time picking out a planner that meets all my needs. I keep meaning to design one, I should get on that. :)


I love, love, love hearing from you! So what's up? :)
