Oy! I meant ..... I guess I just can't resist... instead of can't just, lol. Sometimes the writer don't write so good, lol.

Well, like you - I love the old illustrators and illustrations. I also love the artwork on some of the old books. This is what first attracted me to the calendar and I thought that since I'm a writer - that the pictures in the calendar would look great on my wall. Then I decided I should research my purchase and discovered that my initial hunch was right - the calendar should never be used as wall art for my office! lol. Anyway, like you - I guess I can't just resist art and/or poetry! Hope to "talk" to you again soon and I appreciate all the knowledge you've shared! I'm checking out your website later, too - I thought I'd already done that but I think it was somebody else's site I checked instead. Anyway, judging by the comments on your page - I think I'll quite enjoy it!

Do you check my page for more pics? It was hard to photograph the calendar because although it is beautifully illustrated, the colors are very subdued. You can see her name (if you can enlarge) on the photos I took.

I love ya Bev! Always professional, knowledgeable and positive! I know the artist - she is Margaret Armstrong, a famous illustrator and book author who is known for her Art Nouveau designs. I researched her on the net. Her name is printed on the front of the calendar and on the back of the calendar it reads, "....., after designs by Margaret Armstrong. Thanks so much, Bev - your comments are encouraging and I hope you had a great Christmas and blessings to you and yours in the coming year!

Me, too, Tom - I learned something new and beautiful: Selected Poems of Christina Rosetti. Thanks, Nancy! I checked out the link - I love her poetry and all this from one little Art Nouveau Calendar and some interesting new friends!

Well it seems that Watson & Newell Co Made Souvnir Spoons.
This calendar may be of great value to a souvenir collector.
