If I wasn’t married, I would be well on my way to becoming a crazy cat lady. Every time I walk past one of those agencies I have to pull myself away to avoid coming home with two more kittens in my purse. When AC leaves town (he’s got a trip coming up this weekend. Uh-oh.), I consider surprising him with a new addition to our fuzz-family but I have to stop myself and remember how little space our cats currently have to play. So whenever I see something cat-related in my inbox, I get excited. If I can’t bring another cat into our home yet, I can at least adopt some of the paper or fabric variety.
The adorable calendar tea towels above were illustrated by Matti Pikkujämsä for . There’s a cat for each month and each one has a different expression. I’m partial to the meowing September cat. You can visit the Kauniste site to see more of their work, or to receive an update when the calendar is available (it should go on sale in two weeks for approximately $19).
*Please note: the months are not written in English. I think it’s cute despite that, but if the language issue bothers you, perhaps another calendar is a better fit.
Speaking of animal related, I’m also loving these and cards from Blackbird Letterpress. Each letterpressed card comes with a patterned envelope and can hold a little picture, letter, or a few extra dollars. These are available for $6 each on or you can check out more of Blackbird’s work .
We’ve got some great posts lined up for today, so stay tuned for two beautiful Sneak Peeks, a new “Best Of” interiors post, a fun color-palette roundup from Lauren and a new “Top Resources” post from me at 10! xo, grace
