Hey everyone! I made a little something for you all!!

Each month (sorry to begin in May) you will be able to download a pretty calendar for your desktop to have a nice pretty touch of the 18th Century as a background ;)

You can download the calendar in two sizes (just clic the size you’ll need): 1280x1024 or 1920x1080

Do you like it? Do you think I should make other sizes? Let me know! And when you download it, it would be awesome if you submit a screen shot of your desktop with the calendar <3

Woman Crush Wednesday: We love good eighteenth-century gossip. Emma Hart, a beautiful woman of modest means, gained fame through her liaisons with English aristocrats. While married to Sir William Hamilton, British envoy to Naples, she openly carried on a stormy romance with the naval hero Admiral Lord Nelson. In her youth, she was one of artist George Romney’s favorite models.
