I bought a calendar two weeks ago. I realize we’re almost halfway through the year, but after trying a few electronic calendars on my phone and my laptop–it just wasn’t working. (How old am I?!) It could be because growing up, my sisters and I got a calendar every year for Christmas and we had a family calendar meeting every week–I am just very into physical, see-the-date, write-all-over-it calendars.
The good news is that 2013 calendars are very discounted now. Ha! I sprung for this vertical one from Make Collaboration. It’s minimalistic and modern and has room to actually write things on it! Also, it’s super narrow, which was necessary knowing it was going on this narrow wall. I like it.
And, of course, I couldn’t only hang the calendar.
The Pittsburgh skyline (my hometown!) is by a local artist and was gifted to us from my sister on her wedding day. The clock is, meh. Would love to replace it or spray paint it or something. I think I got it for $7 at Ross forever ago and it’s one of those things that is hard for me to spend money on. Clocks. I have my heart set on this one. I found this paint-by-numbers dog at the thrift store (I guess saying it is vintage would be cooler) years ago and I finally got a fresh frame and mat for him. I am considering painting out the camo-ish background with a navy blue. Greta is obsessed with dogs, so this one is for her. On the bottom right is an intaglio print I did in college of some trees.
Now it feels like this little, narrow wall that separates our living room and kitchen hasn’t been forgotten about–because walls have feelings? I think they just might.
