Fairy Tale Gifts 5: Rachel Ayers

Here is Rachel Ayers's December Giveaway: Favorite Fairy Tale Things entry. I've used calendars for art for many years for my own walls and others. I have to admit my calendar of choice this year isn't fairy tale related but my favorite standby, The Reading Woman 2012 (Pomegranate). I love these and collect images of reading women, no surprise I'm sure. The cover to this year's choice looks like it should be a cover for Anne of Green Gables. There's also the Reading Woman 2012 (Image Connection). I always have to debate between the two reading themed calendars each year.


From Rachel:

What a great idea! I can't wait to see other people's ideas for fairy tale inspired gift giving....

This year money is a bit tight, so while there are several fairy tale books I'd love to give out, I don't think that's going to happen. However, last year I was lucky enough to get both a James C. Christensen calendar and a Classical Literature calendar (which includes Alice in Wonderland as the most fairy tale related subject).

My plan is to go to the dollar store, goodwill, and walgreens and find some picture frames, and use those to cut out pretty images from the calendars. Then I'll match the literature up with the people who will most appreciate that, and give the Christensen art to the fairy tale lovers in my circles. All for the cost of frames, and a little time and thoughtfulness.

Hopefully it will be as meaningful to the recipients as the calendars have been to me through the year!
