A New Month and a Sneak Peek

There's a little story that goes with these pictures and it starts like this:

A while ago there was a cute little stationary shop before/after on Design*Sponge. The shop, Studio Carta, is charming and I popped over to their equally charming blog, Edizioni, to discover they're located in Brookline, right next to Boston (my old stomping grounds). I saw they were running a little giveaway and threw my name in the hat, never thinking I'd win because the prize was simply too perfect on all accounts. To make a long story short, I won the giveaway, am hoping to stop by this sweet shop and meet it's pleasant owner, Angela, face to face this summer when I visit Boston.

I just love this letterpress calendar by Moontree Press! The colors are perfect in my office and the size is just what I need given my limited wall space. I'd been wanting some kind of small calendar and just hadn't managed to find the right one, so this oh so perfect. I love when that happens! Plus, letterpress, hello. I love letterpress! So soft and tactile, yet strong. Loveliness.

 So yes, this calendar has a home now. It hangs right next to something else I find lovely and practical (auf Deutsch: praktisch). I'll have to show you soon! I'm off to teach my last class of the semester now, phew!

PS - I did a big free printable calendar round up last year, but if you're still looking for the perfect 2012 calendar you might find a fun free printable one in 74Lime Lane's roundup. If letterpress loveliness is more your thing, head to Studio Carta!

Too bad that isn't fabric. I am looking for sheets with that color combination.

oh, I know right? That would be gorgeous fabric. Maybe you could block print the design... I think there are several fabric lines out w/a yellow & gray combo if you were up to making your own. Allison might be of more assistance in that dept though! -)
