A vintage find
I can't even remember now where I came across this treasure, but I found it among things I had saved: the Woman's Day 1953 Calendar. You may remember, these calendars used to come as pages within the January issues of Woman's Day magazine. They featured Scripture verses and lovely illustrations. The pages were then cut up and assembled as pocket-sized calendars.
Isn't this beautiful? The verse lettered around the edge of the calendar's cover is from Matthew 12:35 and reads, "A good man out of the treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things."
The next page of the calendar has another verse, Genesis 1:14. What a perfectly lovely verse to consider a new year in light of!
And then the months of the year begin. I plan to show one for every month. Here is the one for March.
Hope this beautifully illustrated vintage calendar and its Scripture verses has brightened your day today! It certainly brightened mine!
I live in scenic northern New England with my handsome husband. We're empty-nesters with a bunch of adorable grandchildren. We love (tent) camping and traveling, but don't get away as often as we'd like to.
