Bring on 2014

At the end of the year I love to look around for fun calendars for the new year.  Sometimes it is hard to decide which ones I like best.
I have to have a quilt calendar for my sewing room, right?  This calendar is filled with photos of modern quilts.  It's something a little different to hang on the wall this year.
For my desk at work I chose this calendar called Backstreets.  It has photos of interesting streets and houses all over the world.
I love colorful houses in interesting shapes.  I'm not much of a traveler so this calendar can take me to places I'll never visit.
I also got a little calendar to keep right by the phone.  It is a vintage desktop calendar. I got it from this little Etsy shop called Writeables.  
It can sit anywhere and I can look at the pretty reproduction vintage gift wrap that is behind each month.
The designs are really cute and just darling from the 50s-60s.  
I think these months are my favorite.  I'm ready for the new year now.  Christmas is put away and 2013 is a memory of blessings and trials.  I wonder what 2014 brings....

The Backstreets Calendar looks so interesting. I could enjoy each month wondering what adventures lay down those winding streets and the stories of those who live in those houses. All your calendars look to be a pretty way to track the days. May your 2014 be happy, healthy, peaceful and prosperous ... :) Pat

What a great selection- love the streets and the vintage paper. I chose,"My Cat is Sad" staring Bear the cat, I follow this on Twitter and it makes me laugh perhaps more than it should- very funny, http://whymycatissad.tumblr.com

I like that last calendar. It's really cute. There really are alot of cool things on Etsy, but I mostly look at jewlery on Etsy that I'd like to have but I'd never wear!

I like your Backstreets calendar. I have Webshots as a background on my laptop for the same reason. I see beautiful photos of places I will probably never see in person. But the little desktop calendar is pure Nanette! I am believing 2014 will be an improvement for us both in every way! Love you. Lots.

I hope 2014 will bring you and your family nothing but blessings Nanette! Looks like you have some great calendars there -- I still haven't calendar shopped. Thanks for posting about the backstreets calendar -- that might be a great option for me!

I really like that Backstreets calendar, too. I might have to Google it. I hope 2014 is a good year for both of our families!

I purchase a quilt calendar every year. Love your choices How are you doing? Hows the health? And are you aware of the happenings at Judi's house?
