I may be the only woman who is not in love with the store Anthropologie. In fact, I find its clusterfuck of faux flea market finds to be very un-Karl Farbman-like. Gorgeous stuff, but a bit overwhelming. But this? This 2010 calendar takes the shape of a little village, and it’s pretty much adorable.
According to the product listing, “Within this paper mansion, six smaller abodes reside, each with a piece of the calendar year set against their clapboard and cedar siding.” Okay, so it is a bit twee, but it’s also the most inventive calendar I’ve seen in a while.
If I were setting up a tableau with this calendar, I would add in the knitted village of Mersham, sprinkle in some of Helen Nodding’s miniature follies, and connect it all with some Autobahn tape roads.
