A Calendar Event

The talented Lindy commented on yesterday's post with a charming suggestion, I thought: why not use a few of the pictures and quotes seen here to do a Freeman House calendar? A bit of a house fundraising move, she said. I read her comment and then stared at the ceiling and thought, Huh. How clever! How delightfully fun would that be?

I worked on it half the night. Lindy was on to something. And the calendar was delightfully fun... and clever.

So for Lindy... and... you... and everyone else who faithfully reads, here's the rub: the Freeman House 2009 Calendar is now available! Featuring 13 of my favorite Freeman House photos and gobs of quotes and tips, the calendar will ship on December 20th to brighten and happy up homes all new year long. To reserve yours (as supplies will be limited) and for all the yummy details on the calendar itself, please go to the Freeman House Shop on Etsy and click on the image for the Freeman House 2009 Calendar.

It's always been my wish to share this wonderful old place with anyone in need of a little warmth or homemade happiness. Now I can, in some small way, ship Freeman House to you! Hope you enjoy....

It's funny how at the most random of moments I think about my blog friends. Anyway, on my drive to work this morning I was thinking of Lindy's comment and hoping that you would make a calendar. It seems as if my wishes came true. ...I give you credit for your speedy work. It would take me forever :)

Thanks!

Brin,
Please tell me that more than 10 will be available. I have a hankerin' that 10 will be gone by Friday and alas, Friday is payday so I have to wait until then. Please, please, please say that if those 10 get nabbed then you'll make more available.

Brin said...

Thanks, y'all! I am totally excited about this sweet little calendar!

Tami - There will be more than 10 available, so you shouldn't have any trouble snagging one (or a few...whatever!) on pay day. I'll make sure there's enough to go around!

Again, thanks! ;D -Brin

That is so fun! Knowing how you must feel about trying to keep up when all else is crumbling, I just had to close up my little boutique I have had for 4 years and it is truly heartbreaking BUT now I am excited about what is to come. For you this is such an inspiration and I know that it will be a success. Thanks for your blog and Freeman House!

Lindy said...

Yay! You liked the idea! lol Much success to you! :)
