Happy 01-11-11

I love thinking about dates -- maybe a little too much.  Like having a lot of New Year's resolutions, I tend to keep a lot of calendars. Walking by A.I. Friedman, I saw this gorgeous calendar in the window from Snow & Graham Letterpress and fell in love with it.  
Last year I made much simpler calendars here and here, but it's a busy week and I actually love each and every month's picture from Snow & Graham -- and that doesn't always happen with all 12!  Then of course, there's the Blackberry.
And a printed calendar at work -- and a CAT CALENDAR! from my friend Rachael.
And a page-a-day from my friend Carlie.  I like all of them for different reasons.  
And a few more things made me happy on this historic day -- we won't have another one like it til 11-11-11.  Surprise: there were still leftovers from my arrangement for Koru Kate.  I heart this saijo persimmon Voluspa candle, which reminds me of a delicious persimmon bellini recently.  Also have a project in mind for these other 2 candles...
Got the February issue of Martha Stewart Living -- yummy and gorgeous and chock full of inspiring Valentine's ideas -- love it!
That inspired me to get a red velvet cupcake from Sweet Hoboken, mmm.
And I finally bought flowering branches!  I longingly eyed the quince in the flower market last March so I was surprised to see it in the market today.  The salesman said it would continue blooming so it'll be nice to see what happens.

My brother bought me a calendar for Christmas and it finally arrived in the mail from Australia -- well, to him in NJ. Hopefully I'll have it here in California soon. But really, all my appointments and plans go onto my Google Calendar. It may not be as pretty as the rest, but it works well. And that red velvet cupcake looks delicious! Sweet Hoboken is on my list of places to visit when I get home to NJ again.
