I bought these old French seed packets on Ebay several years ago... ...and just noticed them again in an old wire rack where they have been quietly residing...
Aren't the graphics and French lettering wonderful? ... and the narrow and small size is sweet.... ...so different than those here in the US ...even the vintage ones.
I have been looking at my old things and collections with fresh eyes... ...trying to discern what you might find interesting and blogworthy.
These tiny French seedling pots came from the Brimfield Antique Shows a number of years ago. I think they are getting harder to find now.
I am pretty excited as I will be visiting Brimfield toward the end of next week with my flea friend, Paula. We go every year in May and always have such a good time together.... hunting for treasure amidst hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of dealers! The weather can be unpredictable though...sometimes it is freezing... ...this year I think it will be beautiful... (I'm keeping my fingers and toes crossed).
I am looking forward to meeting a few blogging friends in person at Brimfield.
To live content with small means.... To seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion.... To be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not rich.... To study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly.... To listen to stars and birds, to babes and sages, with open heart.... To bear all cheerfully, do all bravely, await occasions, hurry never.... In a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common.... ...........this is to be my symphony.
Thank you to all the kindred spirits and kind souls who take the time to leave a comment......Your support and encouragement are deeply appreciated.....I read each and every message and as time allows, do my best to reply.
