A Birthday Calendar

In the homes of my Dutch parents and relatives, Birthday Calendars were as common as silver spoons and old wooden shoes.  Hanging in the kitchen or bathroom, it was a perpetual calendar on which to note the birthdays of friends and family, as well as special anniversaries.  Here is my own version, with 12 original pastels and paintings marking each month. They really make an unusual and useful gift.
