Vintage Calendar

The vintage 7 Up calendar from 1953 belonged to my great-grandmother, Mama Lynn.  I've already shared an important piece of furniture from her home at Sentimental Sundays, and I wanted to share this neat calendar, too.  I don't know of any special stories about why she saved this calendar.  It could be because the date was significant.  It could just be because she really liked the image of the little boy hiding behind the dog house trying to avoid the chore of mowing the yard.  I know that's the reason I really like this calendar.  It's an adorable image that makes me smile.  I'm in the process of redecorating Will's bedroom.  This vintage calendar has been the inspiration for the entire room.  Currently the calendar hangs in my laundry room, but I have big plans for it in the next few weeks.  I'll be making some major changes in Will's room.  I can't wait to see it hanging in it's new spot in our home.  It's kind of neat to think that the calendar my great-grandmother saved years ago will be hanging in her great-great-grandson's room. 




I'll be linking up to Cha Cha at Sit Relax and Read to share this little treasure at Sentimental Sundays.
