The perfect kitchen calendar: Lotta Jansdotter's linen
We've highlighted the fanciful textiles of Lotta Jansdotter in the past, but the Scandinavian designer's 2010 fabric calendars seem timely enough to warrant another mention. Made from 100% linen, they remind me of the calendars my Swedish mother hung in our kitchen when I was a kid.
These are the kind of date minders that make sense in the kitchen: Is July 4 on a weekend this year? And they are a pretty alternative to paper, which never seem to get turned to the new month, or curl up at the corners on dry days, and get ruined by sticky kitchen hands. Get spaghetti sauce on this one? Must machine wash in warm water.
Measures 18- by 25.5-inches -- though they will shrink if washed. $20.
