May FREE Giveaway - Vintage Orange Perpetual Desk Calendar





It's time to really share the love. By now you've seen photos of an identical looking calendar on my desk featured on sites like Apartment Therapy or Herman-Miller's Lifework blog. I absolutely adore this calendar due to it's juicy orange look and chocolate brown accents. I came across another mint condition Desk Organizer some time ago and set it aside for just this occasion. So fans, stop asking where you can get one because as far as I know, this is the only other one I could locate. You'll never look dated with this cool calendar on your desk. See what I did there? ;)

To enter: Simply leave a comment on this post and cross your fingers. Anyone anywhere can enter and the winner will be chosen at random. The winner will be announced May 1st. Good luck & keep an eye out for our monthly free vintage/mod giveaways!

I would love to have this! So I am crossing my fingers all the way from Germany!
By the way, all the stuff that you show here makes me drool a lot :-)! So a little something to make the drooling stop just for once would be awesome!!!

OK, I see myself in the year 1974 waking up, dragging myself over to the table and pulling the black ring from MAR to APR and the top three to the blank spot.

Then turning on the radio and hearing The Loco-Motion by Grand Funk Railroad. (I might have said Time in a Bottle by Jim Croce but that song is just too melancholy.)

Kate said...

This could possibly potentially be the tidiest thing on my desk and I covet it!

claire said...

Not sure if I'm eligible to enter (due to previous win) - but good lord, this would look scrumptious on my new (brown) vintage desk - which will be adorned in all things orange. :)

Just a note guys since people keep mentioning it? There will be a giveaway for the clock you see here. In fact, there will be a couple giveaways for other orange flip clocks coming up including an entire orange desk set. For those in the know I reveal stuff via sneak peeks on my flickr account. Example, http://www.flickr.com/photos/badgurl/4517145944/

Happy winning! Dee-
