Etsy Calendar Love #2

A Year in the Kitchen

A Year in the Kitchen

I don't usually keep a calendar in my kitchen but I could definitely make room for this one.

Etsy Calendar Love

I am in the market for a 2009 calendar. Usually I end up getting one for Christmas (2008 was Eugene Grasset calendar with each month being a different decorative art nouveau style pattern - good pick dad) but not this year, which is fine by me because now I have free reign of what to choose. Here are some of my favorite picks I found while browsing etsy.


SusyJack Deluxe Wall Calendar

Want want want! I love the simplicity of these, they definitely make me smile. I would display a couple of months at a time right above my desk!

My work at Macy's!

Macy's Juice Glasses

I was really surprised yesterday to go into Macy's in Nashua, NH and see these juice glasses that I had worked on over the summer. I had freelanced at Macy's right after graduation working on print and pattern for their in-house tabletop department. I was under the impression that they were not going to hit stores until next summer so it really took me by surprise to see something I had helped design on the floor being sold! Unfortunately these juice glasses seemed to be the only items that they had in stock with the pattern and they do not seem to be on the Macy's website either! I even asked an employee where the rest of the set was and they said that they had only received one box with just juice glasses (which is funny because I had only worked on the glasses for this particular set) I called my dad and of course he wanted me to buy a bunch. Has anyone seen these around their local Macy's?

Hello from NH!

NH Snow

I am spending Christmas in NH and was greeted with not one storm, but two! It took me 9 hours to get from NY to Boston on Friday (usually a 4 - 5 hour bus ride) and all of our family plans have been cancelled for the weekend. I am snowed in until further notice. I made it out yesterday to take a trip to the doctors (feeling even worse!), and grabbed a pair of snow boots which were the last pair in my size at DSW. I plan on spending the rest of the day sitting around in my pj's with a cup of tea and tissues in my hand, and later on decorating the tree with the family
