meet my 2011 calendar

For the last month, I’ve searched for the perfect 2011 calendar and, barring any major surprises, I think I’ve found my pick: Cicada Studio’s new tea towel calendar. If I had to pick one design component I love above all others it would be fabric, so having a calendar in fabric form is a big plus for me. And this one is just plain adorable. I love the colorful floral print and the fact that it would work equally well in a living room, home office or a child’s room. The calendar won’t ship until next week, but you can pre-order one right here for $42. xo, grace

  1. it’s beautiful! that might be my calendar as well!

  5. I agree. This is darling-the fabric makes it!

  6. Manu says:

    Totally adorable!

    Love it! This would look SO perfect in my kitchen with the curtains I made out of tea towels. Oh irony of ironies, however, if I spent $10 on curtains and $42 on a wall calendar. Alas.

  8. How sweet, love it when people make the mundane things in life so charming.

  9. This is lovely. The scale and colours of the illustration/pattern is perfect.

    I agree Janell Beals. My grandmother had one too. I loved them then and love them even more now. This one is especially nice.

    It would be great to circle especially eventful days in permanent marker, that way when the year is over you’ll have a towel reminding you of those super awesome days of 2011. *a

  13. I’ve been looking for the perfect calendar for my new green kitchen – this would look fabulous!

  14. Claire says:

    I saw this on Design Crush yesterday and pretty much shouted “YES YES YES” at my computer screen… but I couldn’t find where to buy it. I don’t have a kitchen of my own (yet) but when I get one (soon?), I need this calendar in it.

    And now I know where to get it. Thank you!
