Jay and I have reached a point where a shared a calendar is necessary. We are having trouble keeping up with each other’s schedules. Sometimes, we can’t even seem to keep up with all the conversations we need to have. So, time for a cool kitchen calendar! I’m hoping this calendar will be a place where we can keep lists, dates, occasions, and invitations. I’ve found this calendar on Etsy. This seems to fit the bill. It’s a functional calendar. And bonus, it has a paisley patterned cork board at the top for invitations or photos. I love paisley patterns. And the price is pretty good. $60 bucks. Not bad but not cheap…and cheap is usually better. And, will this fit on the wall we have available in the kitchen? Hmmm.
Or this one. Also an Etsy find. This one is cheaper ($25), smaller, and lacking the cork board but it is magnetic. We can also get our names customized on it. I can see "Jay & Gudrun" fitting nicely along the top! Or we could wait until we're married and get "The Ellsworths" on top, but we'd have to await awhile to do that. Decisions, decisions.
Even cheaper, at the Container store. They have this $11.99 magnetic, dry erase calendar. Another one to ponder. And should we get the lavendar or the lime?
And back to Etsy. This one seems pretty cool. The Calendar is under glass, so you’re writing on the glass as if it were a dry erase board. This one is $30 and seems pretty charming. There are so many choices!
Just from beginning my search, I’m getting the feeling there are a million varieties out there. Anyone like any of these? Anyone know where I should look for a functional yet stylish kitchen calendar? I'm going to keep browsing. I'll let you know where we end up!
