Yeah, Sweet Calendar Girl

I love, I love, I love my calendar girl
Yeah, sweet calendar girl
I love, I love, I love my calendar girl
Each and every day of the year
-- Neil Sedaka, "Calendar Girl"

Until bills assumed a larger part of my life, I used to love getting the mail. I even loved junk mail. I'd sign up for stuff just to get more mail and getting on mailing lists to get even more crap in my mailbox. These days, not so much.

But yesterday, my mailbox lid was down and thinking the mailman had been too lazy to put it back up, I was cursing him as I returned it to its place. But as it snapped shut I realized there was something stuck in the slot and I saw a Priority Mail envelop sticking out. Woohoo! Stuff!

Of course, when I saw the return address I knew right away what it was. A couple of weeks ago Chris Davis of The Davis Graveyard had a contest on her Frog on the Pumpkin blog for one of their calendars. Yeah, that's right, I was the big winner! A full year's worth of inspiration to hang in my workshop.

As an added bonus, though, she also included a set of five prints of the haunt. Sweet! Now I have to find a set of frames creepy enough to show them off!

Thanks, Chris. I wish you guys had chosen to live on the correct coast and lived in the northeast so I could visit your display (I don't seem to make it out to Oregon much). Your new abbey facade is going to be epic!


  1. Congrats on scoring some cool stuff!
