Calendar Girl


I had a nifty moment this afternoon,
right here in my kitchen.


 I was walking towards the back door,
when I realized it was August.
I'm sharp like that,
not much gets past me.



So I realized it was time 
to flip the calendar from July to August.


And there it was...
one of my photos!

I was lucky enough to have Sue of Vintage Rescue Squad
select five of my images for her wonderful
and the August pic just so happened to be one of the five.



Because we've been immersed in moving stuff
for the past year, I haven't paid much attention 
to decorating or hanging calendars and such,
so I hadn't really enjoyed this honor
as much as I could have.

Until today.
And it was nice.  :-)


Hello there August,
it's gonna be a swell month!

XOXO,

That has to be an extra special surprise to come across randomly! Your photos are always over the top beautiful. Maybe the time has come for YOU to put together a calendar! You know, in all that spare time of yours ;0)

Take care, Sue

I flipped Sue's calendar to August today also. I spent a few minutes looking over every one of those fabulous stamps. I have a few sets of old letters, but I've never seen a set with these sweet words. August is a good month!!

Congratulations on having our photo included in a calendar! If I were you, I would never, ever, ever change to the next month.

What a wonderful blessing, Anne! And if I made a calendar, I'd want some of your photos in it, too!
Is she doing another one for 2012? I love the idea of a junkin calendar!!

Have a delightful week!

Good Morning Anne (with an e)! What a wonderful surprise that must have been...just what you needed I bet. Life can sure get in the way sometimes can't it. I agree...August is going to be a "swell" month. Now if we could just have some cooler days this month I'd be REALLY happy! You have yourself a wonderful day...and don't forget to take some time to "smell the roses" ok.
Maura :)

You have given me hope. August was always a month I would like to skip....just push the fast forward button. It was 110 degrees on my car thermometer today. Your positive attitude is contagious, THANKS.
