Calendar Girl

Ok, so I'm the last person in the world to discover this—if The Sponge has posted it then you know it's old news—but I'm so excited about it that I had to share. Orange Beautiful is taking pre-orders for their gorgeous 2009 calendar! Though I've been working really hard to curb my impulse spending lately, when I saw this little baby here I clicked over to Etsy and bought without a second thought.

I love the graphic intrigue created by repeating the same word in a variety of typefaces. And isn't it clever that you can remove the bottom portion and frame the page when the year is over? The calendar is hand printed and going fast, so snap it up quick!

While you're at it check out the rest of Orange Beautiful's awesome shop. These 'motivational' prints would get some serious laughs in an office (I swear my mom used to throw that belly-aching line at me all the time!). And I can't get enough of their hilarious notecards. The contrast of the fancy pants letterpress design with the flippant messages is such a delight!

With the holidays coming, what could be more perfect than these gift tags? The top two are my favourites—mostly because I'm guilty both of keeping presents for myself and of shameless re-gifting. In fact forget using these on presents. I think I'll just hoard them with my new calendar…

    I find it fascinating that almost all of the American blogs I read seem to have an obsession with calendars. I don’t know anyone in the UK who is interested in calendars at all! But that’s probably why I never know the date.
    Now, chocolate advent calendars – those are something I can get excited about – do you have them?
