This post would have been much more timely in January when every store had shelves full of calendars at 75% off. But being timely is not one of my strong suits (suites?).
So tuck this away for next year. OR, if you’re up for a hunt, you can still find a killer bargain on a calendar. I was in Borders last week and found this one with beautiful black & white photographs for $1.00!!!! I had to dig through the remaining “I Love My Dachshund” and “Kitties Kissing Babies” calendars, but there it was!
I suppose that framing calendar photographs goes against my “no artwork for artwork’s sake” rule. It’s not like these photos are particularly meaningful. But they are pretty. And it’s my rule, so I can break it if I want to.
Besides, where else can you get 12 beautiful photographs for less than $15 (at full price)? Earlier in the year, I saw beautiful botanicals, line drawings, nature photos, car photos that would be great for the man-cave and on and on. Just stay away from the Babies in Pots…unless Babies in Pots is your thing. Just don’t tell me. Babies in Pots kinda scare me.
They probably won’t make it into my empty frames on the family room wall. But I am considering them for my master bedroom. They fit with the Zen Traditional (yes, I made that up) look I’m going for in there.
Are you totally sick of all my Filling Up Your Frames talk yet? Cause I have more.
