Like the Pages of a Calendar...

Time is passing so quickly that I forgot all about my 2011 calendar hunt!

I usually end up looking online or in a big bookstore for interesting vintage-related or retro calendars that I can write all those calendar-y things on. But that's not quite as much fun as hunting for at least one actual vintage calendar for a year that corresponds to the upcoming one - that way all the days fall on the right date. In the case of 2011, the corresponding years are 1910, 1921, 1927, 1938, 1949, 1955, or 1966.

So, come browse along with me now - we've got no time to lose...


Feeling secretarial? How about this 1949 "silent secretary" daily calendar from SarahAnntiques on Etsy?


Or here's an exotic 1966 Australian aboriginal carvings print linen calendar from HeyFriends on Etsy...


Perhaps you would prefer the pretty rosy-cheeked girl illustration on this 1921 Nucoa butter calendar from christmasangel on Etsy?


Now, if you're partial to poodles, here's a 1966 cute calendar from Ebay seller bungalowblondie1...


Methinks there's monkey business going on in this wacky 1955 cartoon monkeys calendar from Ebay seller tmorris2...


And of course, who doesn't love to look at a lovely lady like the one gracing this 1949 pinup calendar from grapefruitmoongallery on Ebay?



Last, but not least, one could always opt for a vintage perpetual calendar!


Bowling theme perpetual calendar from rarefinds4u on Etsy...


Or how about this sleek, mod flippy perpetual calendar from take2vintage on Etsy?


Who knew marking the passage of time could be so much fun?


So, do you still use good old-fashioned calendars or do you keep track of time the new-fangled electronic way?

I think this is a GREAT idea too-and I'll be doing a little vintage calendar shopping very soon! Clever, clever, clever...

I love that bowling perpetual calendar. It also come in a map print so that it looks like a globe. I've been looking for one forever...

Thanks everyone! Good luck in your calendar hunts - hope you all find a timeless treasure for marking time ;)

Lizzie and Darrin - the bowling calendar is too fun - and there was also one with a girl bowler on it. :)
