2011 Calendar round-up, part 2

Since I wrote our first 2011 calendar round- up, we've received a few more, super adorable calendars. First up is the wall and desk calendar from SusyJack. Her bold, colorful illustrations are printed on 100% post-consumer recycled paper and will brighten up any wall or desk. $34 wall/ $20 desk

This graphic desk calendar from Urban Bark Papers is printed on 100% plantable seed paper. You can literally plant the calendar in the ground, cover with soil, water and watch your wildflowers grow! It doesn't get much more earth friendly than that, folks. However, I think
the best part about it is the awesome graphic illustration style that's carried from month to month - perfect for a guy or gal's desk. $24

We are beyond thrilled to be carrying this stunning letterpress wall calendar from Pistachio Press. Each month features a graphic pattern with a bold, unique color combination and a spot at the bottom to jot down important notes. You can easily upcycle this calendar at the year's end, by trimming off the top halves of each month and either framing them or using them as note cards. This one is a must-see in person! $36

And last, but certainly not least, a wall calendar and tea towel calendar by illustrator, Claudia Pearson. We stumbled upon Claudia's work last January after calendar season came to an end and vowed to get these in the shop for the 2010/2011 season. As you can see from the pictures below, Claudia is a super talented illustrator and has created such a fun and different theme for her calendars. The wall calendar features a different seasonal fruit or vegetable for each month to remind folks (especially those of us who live in New Hampshire} that we shouldn't be eating raspberries in the dead of winter, but rather in July, when they are growing naturally. Whether you purchase the wall calendar or adorable tea towel, we promise you will be thrilled. And, as an added bonus, she has also created a children's coloring book featuring assorted fruit and vegetable illustrations and the corresponding months they grow in. I can't think of a better way to teach your kiddos how to eat healthy than by breaking out the crayons and markers! You'll have to stop by the store to see it in person. $26

If the wall calendar isn't unique enough, you can buy t as a tea towel! Printed on 100% cotton in the U.S., it is machine washable and safe in the dryer. $18
