For as long as I can remember I've had a selection of Siamese cat calendars on the walls in my house. There's always one in my office, and one in my kitchen, and, sometimes, even in other rooms too.
There's something truly wonderful about the artwork of Suzanne Le Good, AmyLyn Bihrle and other artists who make their art available, very inexpensively, through their beautiful calendars each year.
Everyone has room for a Siamese cat calendar or two in their house! Don't they? Our selection below includes some wonderful images from creative artists, photographers and water-colorists. So let's get started!
Below, you'll find some of the Siamese cat calendars I love. They're all different, but all equally joyous. They all provide oodles of color and fun throughout the year, as well as great excitement when you turn over a new page at the start of the month and discover what images the next few weeks will bring.
I've bought one of Suzanne Le Good's calendars every year for more years than I care to remember - one of the treats of the winter is opening up a new one. It's something to look forward to in the cold, dark days - if, that is, you can prevent yourself from opening it until January 1st!
You can see the cover artwork in our first image above. Below, you'll find a selection of some of the interior monthly pages.
Suzanne's calendars never disappoint and I can't bear to throw the old ones out so I now have quite a collection! (At some stage I'm going to re-purpose them and make a collage of all the wonderful cats.)
Suzanne makes a point of including new artwork every year so the designs are always fresh, and if you have enough patience not to look at any of the pages before turning over to the new month, they're always a lovely surprise and delight.
Her artwork mixes whimsy with realism, style with wonderful use of color, and they're always very decorative. A real joy, as you can see from the tantalizing glimpses of 2022's images above and below.
While you're there, I highly recommend browsing through some of her other work, as her store is a treasure trove for every Siamese cat lover.
I always treat myself to the calendar in the run-up to the festive season and, as part of my preparations, usually buy a selection of her Christmas cards, and one or two little Christmas gifts as well.
I love watercolor art and this Siamese cat watercolor calendar, with its collection of twelve beautiful watercolor paintings of Siamese cats, doesn't disappoint.
A compendium of sleeping, crouching, hunting, sun-basking, pensive adult cats, along with some extra-cute kittens, all portrayed in soft colors and beautiful detail.
On sale from print-on-demand merchant Zazzle, the quality is excellent and the calendar comes in a range of sizes. Weeks start on a Sunday.
The third of our Siamese cat calendars for 2022 is a traditional, photographic, calendar that's hard to beat. (I may be a little biased here, because the beautiful blue point on the cover belongs to a Twitter friend of mine!)
Created and sold by WillowCreekStudioCo on Etsy, this lovely calendar features images of different point colors, types and ages of Siamese cats and kittens.
This calendar is 12" x 12" square (12" x 24" when hanging open) and in addition to the twelve months of 2022 includes 'bonus months' of July-December, 2021. So if you buy it now you can use it immediately!
Prospective buyers should note that this calendar dispatches from the USA so for anyone outside the States, the mailing costs are likely to be high. It's perfect for delivery inside the USA, though.
For our final selection we turn to the wonderful world of AmyLyn Bihrle! If you're a regular reader of our newsletter, Meezer Musings, you'll know that AmyLyn Bihrle's beautiful artwork often helps to illustrate them.
What you may not know is that AmyLyn also produces two separate annual calendars.
A range of all of AmyLyn's artwork, including her beautiful big-blue-eyed Siamese cats can be found in her Etsy shop, and when I first contacted her to ask her for permission to feature her work she told me that she also produced a calendar, which is available on Zazzle.
As you can see from July's page, below, every month includes a seasonally-appropriate picture of one of AmyLyn's adorable cats. Weeks start on a Sunday, and these calendars are available in a variety of sizes.
AmyLyn's Siamese cat calendars can be found in her Zazzle store, where you can see further examples of each month's artwork (click the little thumbnail images in the left-hand column).
