From An Old Calendar

On this, the evening when you may toss out this year's calendar and begin anew with one for the year ahead, I thought I would show you
these images from a 1926 calendar I found at a yard sale. A small calendar booklet, it measures only 2&1/2 by 4 inches, and it's Italian - printed in that language in Italy. I love some of the images contained within. I call them "The Well-Dressed Couple":
"The Manicure":
"The Well-Coiffed Lady In Her Ball Gown":
and "The Greek Bathing Beauty"
Aren't they lovely? Have a safe and festive New Year's Eve!

The roses on the lady's skirt look like Mary Engelbreit flowers. What great illustrations. I am glad that the person who had it didn't toss that calendar, but left it for you to find. Have a great New Year's Eve. Love T
