Calendar Round Up 2008: Part Two

I can’t believe the many calendars that readers submitted to be included in the annual decor8 calendar round up (thank you!). I’m having a hard time deciding on just one, so I’ve decided to purchase 4 and place them in different areas of my home – the kitchen, over my desk, in my arts + crafts studio, and another to lean against the wall on the credenza in my living room (like the Rhythm calendar from Japan below).

If you wonder how I find all of these calendars, I can’t take full credit because at least 1/4 are submissions from readers. I hope that you enjoyed Part One, now it’s time for the second and final collection of calendars designed by mostly independent artists. I tried to include a variety of styles to appeal to all of you. :)

Looking for something really unique? These calendars from Japan are fun and available online at Hara Museum. The Rhythm calendar is my favorite of the four because of the rough edges.

Fruit Fly Pie {ceramics}

Enna told me about Fruit Fly Pie today so I had to check them out for myself, she really loves this cutie Etsy store and after taking a peek, I can see why!

Fruit Fly Pie makes dishware and ceramics and then hand paints them so they look like vintage finds. She either makes plates, bowls, mugs, and vases from her potters wheel or via slip cast from vintage ceramic molds.

So retro sweet! Especially the cupcake cookie jar and the owl dish, they’re my favorites. And they ship worldwide – yeah! Thanks Enna for the great tip! xo

p.s. enna has an etsy shop, too.
