Vintage Calendar

I was at an antique shop last month and I saw this stand up calendar. It was a little more than I wanted to pay for it but.....it was my favorite color green! Love the picture of the little house on it too. I also thought I have never seen one like this before. The back looks more like a clock, you just turn the dials to get the date and day you want.

I have the calendar sitting on my dresser at 1515, I just love the look of it! To the left is my Grandmother's Childs Scripture Questions book. I have the American Legion poppy in the vintage rose pitcher because it reminds me of my mother. She always made sure she bought a poppy on Poppy Day. I can remember them hanging from her rear view mirror or on her cherry dresser. The lamp on the rt is a donation to 1515 from my beautiful cousin Donna.

Have a Happy Vintage Thingie thanks to Colorado Lady!

My job is hunting down antiques and I have to say that I've never seen one of these! I would send a pic into Country Living to see what it's worth! Great find! -diane

I have seen a lot of calendars, but nothing like this. I can understand your wanting this one. Very different and makes for a great conversation piece. I participate in Pink Saturday. Our hostess, Beverly, likes us to feature a new blog friend. If you do not object, I would like to introduce you this Saturday to the pink ladies.
