A few weeks ago I was surfing Etsy and came across a shop in
Burgundy, France called simplyfrenchvintage.
Within this wonderful shop filled with an abundance of items straight from France,
I came across an assortment of original vintage french seed packet labels.
The bundle I chose contained both flowers and vegetables.
They arrived in the mail yesterday, and I was instantly smitten.
The doldrums of winter have me craving some pops of sweet color here and there.
I bought a bag of green apples last week to liven up the kitchen.
With that in mind, I pulled a few of the green veggies to place inside some frames I already had on hand...
I also had this much larger frame.
I used an old love letter written in 1898 to "Nell" as the background
and simply placed the lettuce seed label on top. Love the layered effect I ended up with.
This one is hanging in a kitchen vignette that I'll show you in another post, but here
are a couple up-close shots of it!
The smaller ones ended up as part of a wall collage in my kitchen combined
with a couple old ironstone pieces and a chippy salvaged grate and door hardware....
Cauliflower was so cute I hung it under the cabinet I'm in and out of a million times a day...
Gosh, is it totally crazy that something so little can make me so giddy?
They have added such a freshness to my kitchen!
I also started forcing some paperwhite bulbs a couple weeks ago and they
are sprouting like weeds. A few sprinkles of lively vitality to brighten my day as I walk by!
Just what I needed to get through the winter blues!
