Where did that weekend go?
Maybe it's something to do with the lousy weather but I don't seem to have 'achieved' anything this weekend - dabbled in a few things but it was like it was raining inside my head too and the ideas and what my last headteacher used to call 'stickability' kept getting washed away!
So today I will share with you something that I'm looking forward to using next year. I saw this recently in WH Smith. Though I didn't buy it then, the second time I was there I could no longer resist, and home it had to come. I normally buy my calendars when the new year has already begun at knock-down price, but I will so enjoy looking at this one that I couldn't resist buying ahead of time.
Here it is...
The Salmon Vintage railway Posters calendar.
Beautiful vintage railway posters for each month of the year.
I'll just have to make sure I don't do with this calendar what I did with another a few years back. It was a calendar of vintage Vogue magazine covers, including this one which I love as I was given it as a poster by my best friend when I was a teenager...
This beautiful calendar was safely put away to wait for Big Ben to chime in the New Year, 'Auld Lang Syne' to be sung and champagne corks to be popped...only to remain hidden for more than the entire year it should have been on show!
At least its gorgeous illustrations remain in perfect condition, with no traces of writing showing through, so when I do eventually find it, they will be perfect for framing!
