Calendars to Ring in 2020 in Style By Workman Publishing

Calendars to Ring in 2020 in Style by Workman Publishing

I love an old school calendar on the wall listing all the events and birthdays coming that month.  If you feel the same way, you will love the selection of wall calendars Workman has come up with this year. Here is a sample :

Coral Shell teapotThe Collectible Teapot and Tea Calendar

My mother-in-law was born and raised in Ireland and cannot miss her afternoon tea. This calendar showcases many different styles of tea pots and cups. There is a beautiful Queen Victoria set featured in June. March’s teapot is a retro style reminiscent of a 1950s diner. My favorite was the July photo of the “Coral Shells” pot and cups since I am a beach loving gal. Each month’s set is accompanied by tea-themed facts, quotes, and recipes. This is an ideal gift for all your tea loving friends and family members.



Out on the Porch coverOn the Porch Calendar

For me, the word porch conjures up childhood memories of summer evenings, sitting after dinner and talking with neighbors. Maybe your porch memory is from a favorite vacation spot or Grandma’s house. This calendar is filled with lovely photos of twelve peaceful porches. February features a quaint patio adjacent to ivy covered walls. May’s vista looks out on a peaceful lake from an Adirondack chair. Other months include foliage views, palm trees and comfy rocking chairs. Relaxing on a porch is a great way to meditate on the peaceful pleasures of life.  Each gorgeous, full-color photograph is accompanied by a porch-themed quote from literature.


In addition to these two calendars, there are dozens of other Workman Publishing  Company selections for every interest. Kid’s Activity, 365 Kittens a Year, Ocean, and Pocket Pigs are just a few of the other themes. The pictures are eye-catching and the paper high quality. You will love displaying these calendars in your home or giving them as a special gift.
