2013 calendars: part 6

Now that it's December and 2013 really is right around the corner, I'm kicking my calendar posts into high gear to bring you the rest remainder of my favorite 2013 options over these next few weeks. This week, my final picks for year-at-a-glace calendars!

First up are these two literary-inspired calendars, both by Brittany Watson Jepsen of The House That Lars Built. The top calender, Language of Flowers, records a love poem written by a boy to a girl in the "language of flowers," the Victorian-era means of communication in which various flowers and floral arrangements were used to send coded messages, allowing individuals to express feelings which otherwise could not be spoken, while Ode to Thumbelina is inspired by the Hans Christian Andersen tale's image of the butterflies that whisked the main character away by her white sash as she escaped her arranged marriage to the ugly mole.

Next up, while it may not come with a fabulous story, Jump Off The Page's Roam calendar will get you excited for all of your 2013 adventures.

And finally, for an option that will far outlast the year, you can't beat this tea towel calendar, by Avril Loreti, which is inspired by hand scripted letters, bright lights/big city style spot lights, and her favorite colors for this upcoming year.
